    Hi guys i have a weird problem

    I tried playing a DVD and the audio volume was very low i tried to crank up the volume to max with my speakers.The dialouges of the movie were still inaudible and the sound effects,background music was way TOO LOUD.

    i tried some softwares to crank p the audio to 200% but still the speech was very soft.is there no way to fix this and enhance the spoken word?

    To answer this i need little more information.

    1) Which Software are you using to play DVD movies; Power DVD ? Win DVD ? or others ?

    2) Describe your speaker & sound card. Whether it is 2:1, 4:1, 5:1 or 7:1 output.

    Because some DVD's will have speech in center speaker music in Rear L & R , and sound effects in Front L & R along with Subwoofer. Try playing the movie in Mono or Stereo settings instead of Dolby Surround and let us know the results.

    Try the following:

    Install Klite Mega codec pack, and then
    Go to start menu --> Klite mega codec pack -->tools --> codec options

    Then, there you will find one option " Boost AC3 volume "

    Enable it and then play the movie.

    Bye
