What settings are you using on your amp when playing the different sounds? I've noticed that some concert DVDs use either 2-channel dolby or stero as the default sound format, and so my my amp into 2-channel mode, hence 5-channel stereo, or DPLII, etc (and hence comes from all speakers). Films tend to have a default of DD 5.1 and so the amp flicks into DD mode.

I also found that selecting the DD5.1 soundtrack for the concert DVD then enabled the amp to pick up the DD signal correctly.

The main(L-R) speakers should not be more that about 6ft apart for playing normal stereo music (ie with no centre channel information), or you get the well known hole-in-the-middle effect.

there about 3 ft away each way
never had them that far away before
just wallmounted them
but thought singing and speaking would just come from center
on a live music dvd
