I am a complete noob that likes to think I know what I'm doing when it comes to AV. Sorry if I am giving more or not enough info than needed. I am slowly putting together a surround sound system piece by piece to get higher quality pieces instead of the surround sound in a box set up.

This is what I currently have:

Onkyo TX-NR515
2 Definitive Technology ProMonitor 800 Bookshelf Speaker (Currently my Front L&R. will eventually be my rear speakers)
Definitive Technology ProCenter 1000 Compact Center Speaker

I have not purchased a Sub Woofer yet because I live in a condo and have a 1 year old.

I play my Blu Ray movies through my PS3 Slim and have it connected via HDMI.

I originally got the receiver and speakers because everywhere I read that the reason I could not hear dialog well was because TVs do not handle digital sound from an HDMI cable well. Now I have a left and right and center and while everything sounds better I cannot get it so I can hear the dialog well. I have found that it tends to be better when I stream but it was really off when I put in Dark Knight Rises the other day. Bane (I know his voice was really effected in post production) was very loud and boomy and at times I could not even hear Bruce Wayne all while the action and sound effects are too loud. Keep in mind I am trying to watch at night without waking up my son or disturbing our neighbors.

I have tried boosting the center channel and still have the problem.

I would be so thankful for any help or a direction.

Did you run the Audyssey setup program?

Most modern receivers include room equalization software which is designed to make the sound you hear more accurate. It compensates for problems in speakers and room acoustics. Onkyo's 515 provides Audyssey 2EQ. For simplified usage information, see page 21 in your 515's owner's manual. For more details see the AVS Audyssey FAQ and user's guide at http://www.avsforum.com/t/795421/official-audyssey-thread-faq-in-post-1/51750#post_21782993
