This is a very common problem with surround sound receivers, the problem is how the surround sound is programmed.

I always suggest using the receiver on multi stereo (MULTI ST.)

This is done by pressing the AFD button on the remote control.

Please let me know how it goes

I wish you the best!

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX quick question, can I adjust volume for individual speakers

seperately?

TV Technician: Jeff the TV Guy, Technician replied 8 years ago
I just re-read the manual, I did not see anything.

Are the surround speakers still not loud enough?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
They are fine, I was only wondering if I can blast them or if they will only be as loud as the other speakers based on the volume setting on the sony reciever.
TV Technician: Jeff the TV Guy, Technician replied 8 years ago
Sorry, that is not an option, but you might want to look into another way to have sound projected in more places.

You could use some type of distributed audio system normally used for bedroom/patio etc areas.
