Yamaha YHT-196 - poor subwoofer levels?

No matter what we play (mainly Netflix and Spotify via. our WD TV Live box), the sub. always sounds weak.

The levels for all the speakers are set to average in Setup, but we maxed out the sub. levels. Still poor.

We've tried 5ch Enhancer, Pro Logic, PLII Music etc.

Any ideas?

EDIT: I tried listening to music from the laptop and the speakers sound much better, so it's an issue with the WD TV Live box.

Within the WD TV Live box settings, we have Audio Output set to Digital Pass-Through via. HDMI Only selected and Dolby Dynamic Range Control Setting is set to Off (should it be?).

Any idea how we can get better sound out of the WD TV Live box? Would audio via. optical sound better?

Subs are or can be tricky, lots of factors can affect perceived performance.

Do you know what crossover feq the av or sub is set at?

Is the placement in the room right?

Whats the room like? Floor? Size? Empty/full of stuff?

The sound is much better through the laptop than the WD TV Live. Much more acceptable.

It's strange.
