    i have a little problem.

    I have a sony dn1000 receiver with 5.0 sony base reflex speakers and a 42" sony lcd full hd tv.

    i have the 2 rear speakers mounted up on he wall behind me.

    however, the sound coming from them is really really soft.


    i can go into the settings for the receiver and can adjust the "db" of each speaker.

    must i put the "db" to the max on the rear speakers?

    i have tried using the auto calibration tool but it does not make the rear speakers any louder.

    the receiver does show that all 5 speakers are being used but you can barely hear the rear ones.

    any suggestions?

    thanks in advance

    The rears should not be too loud anyway. They are designed to give background sounds and hence should not be able to be located behind you. They will be quiet but then they are supposed to be quiet. The rears will generally take less than 10% of the total sound output. If you do want them louder then there is no issue with turn the gain on them up within the amp.

    would i make them louder by increasing there respective decibel count in the receiver settings?

    i think the max for each speaker is +10 db

    Yes, just increase the dB count on the respective speaker.
