I come by this question a lot on the internet, so I know this is an issue that lots of users have.
A solution cannot be found however.
The problem that I have is with the rear speakers of the q990c soundbar. I have positioned them about 1.5 meters behind the couch. I absolutely love the sound of the bar in front. However, the volume of the rear speakers just isn't enough.
I know all about these speakers just operating when Atmos content is played and they're intended for supporting the main sound. I also have figured out how to crank up the volume to +6 in the SmartThings app.
But, it just isn't enough.
The capacity of the speakers must be much higher then what they are projecting now.
Maybe this community knows a way to get the volume higher? I really hope so, as to be honest, I am somewhat disappointed about this expensive piece of electronics that I was so anxious to get.
Thanks so much for any solutions!

Thanks for your answer!
I guess I will have to make do and accept that this is what can be expected.
I have bought speaker stands, so I can position the rear speakers right behind the couch. At that position they sound as they are intended.
I remain baffled that Samsung decided to limit the possibilities of the speakers to such an extend that I cannot place them where I want.

I have the same issue as you the rears just do not deliver a volume level to immerse the room and I have a reference too ….
q770C with the atmos surrounds is so much more balanced I actually enjoy this bar better than the 990c because of this difference.
I can’t believe this couldn’t be fixed by a firmware update to allow a larger level adjustment or a basic setting to adjust the base balance between front and rears
