Hi
I have set up following at my home theater room audio wise but I am not having reproduction of good soundstage as one will hear in cinema. I appreciate all suggestion and help regarding this matter.

Receiver: Yamaha RX-V775WABL http://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio-visual/av-receivers-amps/rx/rx-v775_black_u/?mode=model
Front speakers: JBL studio 190 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882665154
Center JBL studio 1 series 120c
surround JBL studio 1 series 130

Subwoofer BIC F-20

Set up is 5.1

Room size is 19 X 19 X 10

Seating is about 16 feet away from screen

I performed included multi point auto set up from Yamaha.

My major issue is sound does not appear to be encompassing or really surrounding...especially it feels like it in front of me.

How do you think I can address that?

I have not placed any audio treatment yet..in walls or other ways. If I were try improve this set up what can I do without spending too much money? what sort of calibration device software tools can I try? I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on audio set up as this is actually temporary set up for two years. Plan is to have dedicated engineered theater room which will be 12 X 20 X 9 after 2 years.

typical 5.1 set up placement.
What I noticed is that system performs better with receiver set as 0 db, Due to kids sleeping in home, we keep our volume around -20 db, which I believe is ruining the sound stage
