Actually, I have an AV8003 + MM9000 (5ch, 150w/ch) amp. Both get only somewhat warm to the touch (the preamp is warmer than the amp, actually), so the amp certainly is not putting out a lot of power. Still, the point of calibrating is to standardize the sound levels. A volume level of 0db is supposed to be "reference level" (75db sound pressure level, with peak volumes 30db higher: 105db spl) -- which is *very* loud. (Audyssey's web site has a discussion of this.) I'd suggest rerunning Audyssey, especially if you've made any changes in your room since the last time you did it -- moving furniture, adding rugs, etc.
Not being able to hear the dialog well suggests an issue with the center channel. Make sure the speaker is pointed toward your ear level when you're seated at the listening position before (and after!) calibrating. e.g. if it's below the display, tilt it up. Also, it should not be sitting on the floor or, if at all possible, inside a cabinet. While Audyssey can help compensate for the reflections and resonances those cause, it can't fix them entirely. Being my usual pessimistic self, I suggest you check to make sure all of the speaker drivers in the center speaker are actually working. One might have failed.
Edited to add: In general, Dyn EQ should be on. It compensates for how poor everyone's low frequency hearing is at low sound levels: it turns up the bass when you have the volume turned down and turns it down when the volume is turned up.
I hope these suggestions help a little.
