Yeah, TV speakers pretty much suck. Depending on your set, they're only 10-15 W per speaker. The only way to truely enjoy sound these days is to get a home theater surround sound package. They're pretty reasonably priced these days.

I think I paid around $300 or so for my 720 W 5.1 system 5 years ago. I remember I bought it prepare for the King Kong DVD. So whenever that was.

But to answer your question, usually set your treble to the max for best high-end fidelity, and then set your bass at a level that doesn't distort the overall sound. Bass through TV speakers is quite laughable unless it's a special TV with a built-in subwoofer. And then even then, it's not as good as a dedicated 100+ W sub via surround receiver.
If I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die historic on the Fury Road.
