So, I've been working some long hours lately and fighting off a bad cold... so I hope someone else gave you some more ideas. I'm still new to deep troubleshooting of some of these problems but based on what I see, your fronts look pretty much the same for both your Movie and Music profiles. It is very odd that the low end drops off the way it does, but since you say you are hearing great base with the movie profile, I would be interested to know what you here if you try the following tests:
(Let stick with a common known source, your Blu-ray player with a traditional CD, not an MP3 or other digital file).
What do you hear when you - Use your BDP Source set to the Movie Profile and your 2.0 profile source as:
Do all of these sound the same as using your Music Profile with your 2.0 profile set on Stereo?
If no, which ones are providing the same base levels you are expecting (do any provide the same level of base as you get when watching a movie?)
It maybe that you are getting more base from your surrounds or even your center. Possibly your Fronts are even canceling each other out... you might check to see if one of them is accidently got the polarity swapped, always worth double checking.
I hope I missed some other feedback from others on your config. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.
