Hey everyone, new to the forum, I'll take the time to go introduce myself, but in the meantime I had a couple questions.

I just got a Pioneer VSX-822-K, which is powering Polk Audio RM6750 speaker and subwoofer. I am trying to find a way to make my "centre" speaker a bit louder, since like in this thread: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1423957/pioneer-vsx-822-volume I hear more of the outside noises and music than the actual voice.

Is there a setting for this? An option? On a related note, what kind of settings should I be looking at, this is my first "home theater" system you could say.

Thanks,
JP

First run the MCACC setup using the microphone on a tripod. Then if the center is still too soft, manually change the output level of it.

I've ran the MCACC setup on a tripod, and I find that the center speaker is still too soft for my taste. I'm just not sure where to adjust the level output of the center speaker, other than changing the distance for the speaker.

If someone could let me know where I can find these settings in the VSX-822-K, that would be great!

Thanks,
JP

Hey didn't see you replied.

Go to your menu and it should be under manual SP set, and then go to channel level.

Just press the Receiver button at the top of the remote, then press CH select at the bottom of the remote, then choose the Centre channel and quickly press the + bottom below.
