Voice from center channel is extremely low

The center channel is placed at about ear level when sitting down. The satellites sound good and so does everything else, yet voice from the center channel is amazingly low. I actually found a fix that works really good; hooked up an old pioneer speaker in series to the center channel. However, I still find it really odd that by itself voice from the center channel sounds so low.

Any ideas?

So the whole point of

so the whole point of calibrating is to get the speakers alll to approximately the same level from the viewer correct? I don't have no calibration disc, I'm just gonna use the "Test" functionality of the receiver and adjust the levels that way..

Actually it is not a fix but rather a patch. You should not be doing this to correct the center channel problem.

Have you done this as below?

Check your receiver, most have setting on individual channel, scroll to the center channel to verify what value of decibel is displayed there. If it is too low or at zero level, try to increase it to see if it makes the sound louder.
