    Sometimes when i watch an action scene on loud volume, the center speaker keeps turning down on me. Like... it doesn't mute. But it keeps doing that. Any fix please?

    Does it come back by itself when the scene gets quieter? How do you get it back?

    Sounds like you may have the “Night Cinema” mode engaged. It basically adds compression to bring down the peaks in volume.

    It’s a fairly-low powered system. If you’re playing it really loud it’s probably just running out of steam.

    Play the same scenes with the volume turned down and see if it still does it.

    Yeah, me either. But does anyone have the same problem too? If so... how do you fix that?
