Old age and other factors have combined to cause me to have hearing problems. So I need some advice or suggestions on ways to improve the volume of speech out of my system. I am using a Pioneer, I think..., DD 5.1 receiver wired into a 5.1 speaker setup. When I crank up the volume loud enough to hear conversation on a lot of movies and some brodcast shows I blow the family and myself out of the room when music or action sceens hit. The speech is coming out of the center channel but the other audio coming out of the tower speakers is overpowering. I have set the center channel to the max within the receiver control and have turned down the towers. Any ideas on how to get louder speech w/o blasting the house when the action hits? MikeS.
