Voices cannot be heard clearly when playing dvd

Cannot hear voices clearlly when playing dvd, adjusted bass down, but it seems like the music overpowers the voices/conversations. new dvd's are digital, is that the problem that the series II can't seperated voices?

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.

    o yes i need to ask for clarity is it a digital system or an analog system ( the digital system appears to have a spare cable that should be connected to a 5.1 or digital source such as a small digital amp (even something like an i pod ) or the dvd player directly itself.

    if it is diital, make sure the cable is connected correctly to the dvd and the dvd is playing with a 5.1 signal ( found under audio settings for the dvd being played)

Is it possible to reduce the background music when watching a dvd? The music overpowers the voices.


No. The reason they give Academy Awards to SoundMixing, is because some do it great, and some do it bad. Once the dvd is printed, there is nothing you can do about the mix of the sound between background and voices. it's just a bad mix. oh well, the same thing happened to me about a week ago, but as the movie went on, the sound mix either got better, or my ears started to tune into the voices better.

What are the best settings for bass , treble and mid in order to get the best sound


There are no hard and fast rules for setting Bass, Midrange and Treble on your radio. Depending on the type of music you are listening to with your radio, it can / will determine your sound settings. To attempt to set the sound settings on your radio, select the sound settings and set all of them to 0. ( Bass,mid,treble ), then start playing your usual music. With the music playing move the treble setting in single incriments 1,2,3,4 and so. A comfortable setting is usually a 5 out of a total number of 6. Then move over to Midrange and repeat process. A 4-5 out of 6 is usually comfortable. Finally comes the Bass. You do not want to overpower your speakers with too much bass as this will damage them over time. Repeat the usual process and listen carfully for any baffling or distortion as you move through the numbers. A comfortable bass setting is usually 2-4 out of 6. Again I must stress that there is no hard and fast rule for settings. It boils down to the type of music, and what your ears tells you sounds good. What sounds good to me might not be enough for you, or vice versa. I hope this helps! Cheers!

When i play a game such as Battlefield Bad Company 2 on the Xbox 360. The sound works, like you can hear the water flowing, aircraft etc etc, all that is is fine. But when it comes to audio of different ...


Most of the sounds you are hearing good are background sounds. If you are running a surround system, you might want to try adjusting the output of your primary speakers, checking for the correct setting on your receiver, and verifying that your central audio is in the correct section ( receiver output ).

If you are not using surround sound,
Check the in-game menu (Pause) for an audio section, some games allow you to turn the character voices up and the music down. If you don't have that option, try using a new output cord from your xbox to Tv.

Audiologic DVD-108, music plays, cannot hear regular conversation


This sounds like a setting on your DVD player in its menu settings. You could try a couple of things, first being to unplug it for a couple of moments (5-10 minutes) or going through your menu on the DVD player with the remote or the front of the player. I assume that all of your DVDs have this problem.

No voice sound through speaker with DVD system, only music?


first check the settings on the audio menu of the dvd player. make sur it is set to 5.1 (if available) otherwise set it to stereo and your system should decode it.
assuming the second step is okay : as other dvd you play seem to work) it still may be that your unit is decoding stereo inputs just fine and 5.1 is not working properly....
so if adjusting audio settings in dvd play back menu dont work,
check that the cables to the satellite speakers are connected correctly and all plugged in soundly ( voice is high frequency,- coming from satellites - the garbled noises you hear are the base ( low freq) elements of voice which are coming from the bass box ( that the X.1 part of 5.1) and so that is obviously working. ,
