well, i have 5.1 speaker connected to my Marantz front speaker is Mission M74, with Klipsch SC.5 as my centre channel, the AE Aegis One as rear, Mirage BPS150 as my subwoofer...

but i am having some problems, when i watch DVDs, the centre channel seems to be quite soft compare to the other channel...i check the sound level, all calibrated correctly, i even try to increase the level of the centre channel by additional 2db...but i still think that the dialogue inside the movies seems to be low...i notice that other system (which i audition at shops doesn't suffer this problem), anyone here can tell me what's wrong, would it be the centre channel not powerful enough.?.

btw...i am connected the whole sound system to my soundcard is the Audigy Platinum and connected through the coaxial output...thanks

one thing to add is, i use the test tone to test out each channel volume, the centre seems to be very fine against other channel, only during DVDs playback, the centre channel seems to be low on dialogue

Check to see if you can change the center channel speaker distance. By setting it at a closer distance than the exact distance you may get a feeling of it being louder. I dont know the size of your room but if you are sitting 7 feet from the mains(exact) then try the CC at 3-4 feet less.
