It all has to do with a combo of speakers used, room acoustics. In a live room, not as much power is needed, compared to a room that is heavily damped. And if you have problems with dialogue, then you need to invest in a matching center speaker and/or fix any acoustic problems in the room that effect dialogue.
With a center speaker, if need be, just the volume in that channel can be increased to output more dialogue, w/o increasing the output of the main L/R channels.
