    Idk why but explosions and other loud sounds are always really quiet on my tv/stereo set (idk what does it). Like I get the music and dialogue bit, but for whatever reason my thing gets way too quiet whenever there is a sudden loud sound.

    I've never been lonely. I've been in a room -- I've felt suicidal. I've been depressed. I've felt awful -- awful beyond all -- but I never felt that one other person could enter that room and cure what was bothering me...or that any number of people could enter that room. In other words, loneliness is something I've never been bothered with because I've always had this terrible itch for solitude.

    Actually inaccurate, but anyway....
    Streaming-services like Netflix and Spotify suffer from level-compression. But while, sure, many physical home-video-releases do suffer from that as well, there are also plenty of great ones that are well-balanced and dynamic. - Maybe you've been getting the wrong ones if you think it's all the same.
    (Yea yea, I know it's a joke. But it's just highly inaccurate.)

    Same situation with tv show reruns from the 50s-80s. You change the volume to hear the dialogue and then the commercials are louder then a garbage truck in your living room.

    Only solution I've found. Get a surround setup with a good center channel. Turn up the center channel volume only. Turn up the treble, turn down the base. If your receive has it, turn on the dynamic range compression. Or, if you don't have a receiver/speakers, check in your tv menu for "voice" audio modes which should help.

    I fixed the volume issue by changing my audio to 2.1 instead of 5.1 which is default on Netflix. Most people have 2.1 speaker systems but play 5.1, thus causing the loud background noise.
