Have you run the Audussey setup with mic placed on the middle seat opposite to tv with the cardboard mic stand, at least 3 mic positions in your couch (middle is 1st and the 2nd and 3rd within 30-60cm from the first spot). You would hear test tones played from your speakers and subwoofer.

Make sure behind the Jamo 250 sub you have connected the cable to Line In Left or Right, the gain (volume) knob around 12clock (50%), phase knob set to 0, cut off frequency knob (hz) set to 150hz = max. Also if you have to run Audussey set the power switch to "ON" position rather than Auto, you can change that afterwards. If you want stronger bass from your subwoofer you can try moving it to front corner.

After running setup make sure in the Denon menu you have speaker size set to small. Speaker crossover likely around 120hz for those small Klipsches. Don´t go changing the speaker or subwoofer distances!

Check from Denon menu that you have Audussey Dynamic EQ "On" and Dynamic Volume set to "Off".

Yes i believe those Klipsches are better than the cheap HTIB Sony package!

I hope you have some idea how the speakers should be placed. See link below. At least for the front three try to have them around seated ear height and spread them apart more (main L/R) if they too close each other.
