    If you feel the volume level of the Surround Back channel is too low then increase it a couple of db. Just remember the surround back channel is not meant to overpower the other surround channels but enhance them.

    Lack of volume could also be down to the dispersion of the dipole speaker, its spreading the sound around the back rather than firing it at your listening position. Room acoustics will also come into play.

    As I said, just increase the level to your taste, it might not be "correct" but having the system sound how you want it to is. :)
