Having trouble making out dialogue I would have thought would be more to do with you lacking a centre speaker, without it the system is having to mix that dialogue track across the other speakers which will make it more muddled than if the dialogue was solely out of a dedicated speaker.

For the record its been a few years since I last watched my BD of Blade but I thought it sounded fantastic.

You might want to adjust (lower) the crossover a bit, as it is clearly firing on higher frequency stuff and making things too bassy/stuffy. It's a mixing choice as to how (and how much) LFE is utilised, and can easily come across as too much if your settings aren't right.

I used to have the superb Sony WG800 all-in-one system, where you merely put it on the volume you were comfortable with and everything sounded excellent, without having to adjust for individual material being played.

However, I recently upgraded to an Onkyo Atmos amp, and am finding the need to having things playing at different volumes to achieve a desirable (or comfortable) effect, even though it has been properly calibrated. I all three Blade movies on Blu, and the bass on the first is powerful stuff, but haven't felt the need to duck for cover as I alter the levels, even on the new amp.

Thanks for the suggestions, people. Right now I have noticed this issue only with Blade, need to go through more of my collection to conclude.
Also, I'm a little divided about having a center speaker because my 2 fronts are only separated by the width of the (50") TV, and I don't know if a center speaker is justified for such a narrow soundfield. Also I will have to figure a way of placing it above the TV and angle it downwards towards the listening position so as to avoid height panning issues.
