Denon AVR-S950H Receiver Volume Issues


Novice Member
I have a Denon AVR-S950H Receiver. My concern is that when streaming a movie over Apple TV or other sources that are not Tuner, the volumes are not sufficient. Tuner sounds fine volume wise though..., because only using 2 channels I assume?
I have other less powerful systems that sound great, why is the volume so low on this system? What can I do to increase that?

Speakers are: Acoustic Audio HD728 in-Wall/Ceiling Home Theater 7.2 Surround 8" Speaker System
Sub amp x2: Acoustic Audio WS1005 Passive Subwoofer Amp 200 Watt Amplifier for Home Theater

With the 2 subs, I have 9 speakers and it is a very large room with sound-spill into other areas, but still shocked at how LOW the volume sounds, almost unacceptable for watching movies, could hardly tell it was surround sound.??

I used the auto setup first, then I have been tweaking individual speakers db's.., helped a bit, but still too low for movies...

Do I need more amperage to send a stronger signal to the speakers?
