Modal frequencies peak at boundaries, i.e. walls. So the "heaviness" you are hearing are multiple frequencies that are significantly louder the closer you get to the rear wall. Those same frequencies tend to decay slower also, which would also increase that same heaviness. If you only have that one seating location, some PEQ can he helpful. Most consumer level AVR's won't have that type/level of control however.
