You could boost the levels for the surrounds by a few dB.

If you'd like more out of a particular speaker (or set of speakers) you manually increase their "level". Using only a 1 dB increase will be hardly noticeable, 2 dB will be a small increase, but not always apparent for all material, 3 dB (or more) will be more easily heard, at least when there is actual content coming from that speaker [but keep in mind, for most of the movies I watch at least, the surround speakers are nearly dead silent for almost two-thirds of the movie, but this varies by movie]


I suspect you might dig the surround mode called "5ch Stereo". Give it a go.

In A/V reproduction accuracy, there is no concept of "accounting for taste". We don't "pick" the level of bass any more than we get to pick the ending of a play. High fidelity is an unbiased, neutral, exact copy (or "reproduction") of the original source's tonal balance, timing, dynamics, etc..

I find action and horror movies to use the surrounds more than typical comedies/dramas. There are exceptions with the latter, but the former usually doesn't waste the surrounds. Also, when music in movies plays in either group, it's often through all channels.

UN46EH6030 Calibration/Settings
Display: Samsung UN46EH6030 LED-LCD TV; Sound: Yamaha HTR-3066 AVR/AMP, Sony Core Bookshelves (Sony SS-CS5) and Center (Sony SS-CS8) as fronts, Yamaha NS-AP2600S Satellites as surrounds, Dayton Audio SUB-1200 (pending) to replace Yamaha YST-SW012 as subwoofer; Sources: PS4 (doubles as primary BD player), Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Motorola RNG150N (Cable Box)

To the best of my knowledge, the mode "5ch Stereo" has the strongest content out of the rear speakers, of any other mode, which seems to be exactly what he's looking for:

We've already established he realizes what he personally seeks is not synonymous with technical accuracy:

Just because one surround mode may not be a particular person's cup of tea, doesn't mean it won't be a good bet for another person.


Had he asked for, instead, say "the surround mode with the largest, most reverberant room reproduction" I would have recommended "Church".

In A/V reproduction accuracy, there is no concept of "accounting for taste". We don't "pick" the level of bass any more than we get to pick the ending of a play. High fidelity is an unbiased, neutral, exact copy (or "reproduction") of the original source's tonal balance, timing, dynamics, etc..
