I bought the HW-T650 and SWA-8500S because it had a dedicated center channel so I could hear the dialog, and I can if I crank the soundbar up to 60+. But then when an action scene comes its way too loud, even if I reduce the volume of the bass/woofer and rear speakers.
I have to sit there with the remote in my hand constantly increasing and reducing the volume instead of enjoying the film.
Is there a way to boost the center channel on the soundbar? I can't believe I'm the only person with this issue.
I didn’t know you can do that. I also tried to change from optical to hdmi. That didn’t change the sound.
Sadly, the TV speakers are much louder. Obviously, the bass isn’t there, but we have a very large Samsung TV and the voice is crystal clear when played through the TV speakers. When you use the sound bar, it sucks to say it simply.
