Reset your surround parameters; you are asking too much out of your system, as it's going into "protection mode"....accordianman

When watching a DVD, the surround sound plays all background music but the actors voices are not heard - can hear music and voices in 2 speaker only - TV programs play in 2, 3, and 5 speaker mode.

If there is nothing at all from the center channel while watching a DVD, first try resetting the system (unplug the power cord from the sub, and the DC power cord from the media center for 30+ seconds) If a reset doesn't help this, run the "adaptIQ" setup disc again. Honestly, this is a very odd problem for that system to have. (especially since we know the center speaker works for other sources) I hope this helps.

The background music is louder than the voices

in the menu there should be some type of set up for this, it will most times show you on your screen a room with all the speakers in it and ask you to hit test then it will shoot a white noise type of sound around to each speaker and ask if you heard it, there are then adjustments you can make for the front, rear, and side sperkers independent of one another.

Vocal sound with a powered mixer

Do'nt mess with the Tone,Bass, Mid or Highs without reason. Flat is the Standard for mixing, recording, and further processing as it allows you to control the tone there.
Volume is subjective, as in a crowd of WWII Marines are deaf, but many cities have regulations for sound levels, and they check them, and will shut you down if your out of compliance (need a sound level meter, the good one), and you can drive away old ladies with load noises (remember: they are your customers).
Generally set your levels so they NEVER Distort the signal and any point or level in the show.
Make shure that you have quality microphones and cables.
Keep your levels balanced if possible.
Do'nt know what your rig entails, but any place to clean up a signal, or lower noise will directly reflect on the sound.
A DSP with compressor/limiter and maybe some other algos like reverb, delay, flanger, phase/frequency shifter can greatly enhance and help control a modest or not rig easily.
With voices, a sybillance or vocal processor can make a world of (usually good) difference, and a matched set of Compressor/Limiters dedicated to the voices can help tame the levels of several people in a live or studio situation.
Keep mike and other low level cables far from electrical drops (crossing at right angles) taped down.
Run your mike and other levels well within safe limits,
setting levels of incoming lines as high as possible With Out Overs, the more headroom the better.
Use the Mains out to control the volume levels in the House (your audience). In most situations,
the volume of the entire soundsystem should be so the audience can talk in close quarters (whisper), and still hear themselves over the band in the distance. (the country clubs I've played).
Start with the lead vocal, and get a comfortable , clean, and balanced sound with both loud and soft singing, both being heard with-out major adjustment of the signal at the board.
Adjust any output or input that has changed in response to the addition of the voice, to a average -10 db level.
You may fine-tune them later, and at the show, (and another show, and another,&another &another...)
These levels rise as you add more voices and instruments, and during the course of some shows, so having some extra space is good to have room to solo a voice over the basic loudness of the rest of the show, (I swear, it's a circus folks).
Add the other vocals one at a time as before, 'til all are of the same level.
Now adjust any levels that may have risen or changed (-10 db is a good starting place) to not have any overs for the next stage.
Add the instruments levels one at a time, in order of importance to the sound, leaving headroom for solos, as well as building structure in the gain matrix.
USE THE TONE CONTROLS ONLY AS THE LAST RESOURCE, Though Equalizers can be real handy.
Tone Conrols are TO FIX Undesireable Sounds Levels such as Feedback, a nasal voice (the same), or other Highly offending examples of Vocal or Musician outbursts (Guitars Mostly).
As the club manager or health department official TELLS you to turn it down, and as sound levels subside, the guitars keep wailin', and at a certain point one must just turn the damn soundboard OFF, turn and announce to the official that at that point "it is out of your control".

Voices cannot be heard clearly when playing dvd

erm,, when you say you cant hear voices clearly. do you mean that they seem to be a little lower in "obviousness" than they should be or are they way down ther as the background level is so much higher.

1. a little lower means you need to bring the trebble up and the bass down and bring up the centre and reduce the surround , this is basically tuning the sytem to your room.
you also need to check the dvd setting for audio out to ensure that the settings for the audio on the dvd are set to 5.1 ( if the little black spare connector is connected to your dvd player) or else set to stereo for "normal " palyback.

2. if the voice is way down compared to background sound track.
are you using an amp for the bass channel, this may need to be turned down. or the thing that looks like a spare connector on the end of the cable going to your cd5 unit is not correctly installed. can you tell me what the set up is.
