1. Some movies are mixed with the voice low, so make sure you are not basing your conclusions off of a couple movies.
2. The Chane 2.4 speaker will be clear, detailed and is pretty sensitive, so if you are having dialogue clarity issues, that Chane ain't the culprit. How loud do you listen? if your are pushing your HTiB speakers too much, you might be getting distortion that is drowning out any good audio.
3. You might simply have an issue where you HTiB speakers have sensitivity of say 82db and the Chane around 90 and they just make a terrible match...but either way, replacing the L/R will cure the issue, I suspect. And the obvious answer is that the Chane 1.4s would be the best match for that center.
