Hi Troy - have you tried the Audyssey Dynamic EQ (assuming you've run the Audyssey setup) which will give you more bass at lower listening levels?
If that doesn't work, then the following would be some areas to troubleshoot:
Source Material - are you playing material that has good bass and/or sound? There are plenty of lists available for recommended material to demo your HT sound system.
Source Device Setup - is your Blu-Ray/DVD or Cable/Satellite box connected via HDMI and is it set to output multi-channel digital audio?
Receiver Setup - are your speakers and sub connected correctly to your receiver? Did you run the Audyssey setup correctly? Review the options for THX, Dynamic EQ, crossover settings, etc. as previously posted. Try different listening modes.
Speakers/Sub Capabilities and Positioning - is the sub positioned optimally? Is the sub calibrated correctly? Is the sub big enough for the size of your room? The AVS subwoofer forum has been a great resource for me. Also, check the THX website for recommended speaker/sub positioning.
Any info on the above that you can provide would help find a solution. So far, I am impressed with the full, rich, clean sound the 727 puts out with my budget setup, with no strain when playing at reference level. Hopefully you can have a similar experience soon.
