Just got the system a couple weeks ago. When I watch a movie, and the sounds get louder or there is loud dialogue, the speakers, especially the front ones tend to rattle. Any suggestions to help me out?

Some TV's have sound settings to empathies voice. If the TV has a centre speaker you can increase the sound output on that. That will make voices louder.
However many people do complain about loud music drowning out voices on TV. The problem is that movies were meant to be seen in cinemas and TV sound systems don't match up to that. If you can't find a solution consider a surround sound system as this will correct the sound problems on movies.
Most of this is how the original material was mixed during production. Commercials are generally broadcast louder than the programming too. Try changing the sound field in the TV menu. Under the "Sound" menu of most TVs there are preset fields that are kind of like EQs. If you have a DVR, try different ones listening to the same show you are having issues with. The adjustments in most TVs are very limited. An external audio source (receiver, HTIB, soundbar) would give you more adjustable.
I ended up installing a stereo graphic equalizer/ sound limiter from Radio Shack. I use the ear phone output go into the equalizer / sound limiter then go into a speaker system. You can adjust the EQ and limit the volume. I also had problems with load portions of movies, commercials and low/ high audio. This also allows sound enhancement with some buttons on the EQ. It is usually used in sound reinforcement as in Band and public address systems also higher end stereos systems. you will need a set of powered speakers for this solution so the EQ has somewhere to go to.
on some dvd players and surround sound systems have a thing called DRC (dynamic range compression) you can us that and it will help it a little. i have come across the same problem but im after a digital on to run with plex or vlc on a mac. im having to route it through protools to use a compressor on there, but thats eating my resources.
I had the same issue, there is a Late night mode on the remote that minimizes the volume of a loud scene so you don't have the constantly adjust the volume. Works great if you are trying to watch a movie while others are trying to sleep.
If you will allow me to make an assumption, you do not have a 5.1 surround system connected to your DVD player. This is a common experience with users of a standard TV or stereo receiver if a movie is being presented in 5.1.
In a surround sound system the center channel speaker provides almost all the vocal tracks while the side channels will provide music and some background noises. You'll still be able to hear the voices in your side speakers, but it will be muted and over powered by music or sound effects.
Some DVD players allow you to "Downmix" the surround signal to stereo. You might want to look around your sound setup on the DVD player or check your owners manual.
Check the speakers impedance. it should be greater then 6ohm otherwise you overload the system. Also, if the speaker sytem is rated (in Watts) below the amplifier's power it overloads the amp at higher volumes.
