Suggestions for Setup in Home Theater Posted June 28, 2012 Thanks a lot for your help. I've got it sounding pretty good but it is completely intolerable having to turn the volume up and down all the time. My girl and I watch movies all the time and she constantly has me turn it up so we can hear what people are saying. You literally have to crank some movies just to hear voices. They always sound muffled out, like they are talking through a pillow or something. My last system was like that too. Problem is that you turn the volume up to hear the voices and when an action scene or anything of the sort comes, you get blown out of the room. All this equipment and half the time for the past year we end up just watching movies in stereo so we can relax and enjoy it. Not sure what the problem is but I can not find a fix. I have tried numerous forums and Googled for days. Back to stereo I guess! It sucks when she says, "surround sound is so annoying."
