With 5.1, 6.1 & now 7.1 HTSs is it becoming more common to have to turn up the volume of the centre speaker? With my AVR (Denon) I can individually turn my speakers up to +12 or down to -12; the usual settings for my speakers is 0. When watching DVDs my centre channel is competing with 2 tower speakers with powered subwoofers, 2 rear speakers & a 2 x 10 inch subwoofer. When there's action scenes with bombs, gunfire, cars racing etc I find that I have to turn my centre speaker volume up to around the +8 mark so that I can clearly hear dialogue - is this something everyone else is having to do when watching movies in dolby or DTS or is there something else I need to do? BTW, my centre speaker is timber matched with the rest of my system. Cheers.
