    Where to look for help on my system setup for the sound. I put in Godfather part one and I can't hear the voices without cranking up the volume, then next scene party starts and music blasts me threw the wall.

    Try boosting just your center channels volume. That's where all the dialogue should be coming from.

    Did you use auto calibration with a mic to setup? If you're center is maxed and you still can't hear, then maybe you need to drop down your front left/right a tad if those are up high too..

    Having the center set that far above the levels of L/R seems kinda weird. Try running the receivers test tones and see if they sound good to you, there may be larger issues at play here.
