    Hi, I've just bought surround sound for my room (2nd hand). I have the Grundig GDV5804.

    Now the 'centre' speaker is loud, I was wondering if I could make them all the same volume as the centre one, because at the moment the 'surround sound experience' really isn't much of an experience, lol.

    The five small speakers and the sub woofer are all plugged in to the DVD plater. Then I have a AUX in plugged in to the DVD player as well and that is connected to my PC.

    Out of the small five ones, only the 'centre' one plays all the sounds and plays them louder than the other ones, the other four are really quiet and can't really hear it.

    thanks for your help guys and girls.

    Maybe the DVD you are playing just has a lot of dialogue or something and little background noise?

    EDIT: Oh wait, you are playing something on your PC and then through the speakers?

    What connections are on the back of the DVD player?

    Yeah you're right.

    I have the following connections:

    • Antenna
    • Audio In: AUX 1, AUX 2
    • Audio Out: AUX 1, AUX 2
    • Video Out
    • S-Video Out
    • Digital Out

    Then there's the little clips to insert the wires for the speakers. There's 6,

    1. FR
    2. FL
    3. C
    4. SR
    5. SL
    6. SW

    And then finally the scart lead.

    Thanks for your help by the way

    Are the AUX1 and AUX2 SPDIF inputs?

    Try setting them in stereo mode. In surround sound the center speaker is the main speaker in which sound comes out unless the media you are playing is actually in surround and even then you won't get sound from other speakers all the time.

    In that case they are stereo and won't use all the speakers anyway...

    You will only get the full experience with media with surround sound, like a DVD for example
