Why is the dialog hard to hear?

Dialog (people speaking) is usually mixed into the center channel, with music, effects, and ambience mixed into other channels. If your audio system isn’t hooked up correctly or doesn’t work properly, the center channel might not be properly reproduced. If you have a system with only two speakers, make sure it is connected to the stereo outputs, not the multichannel outputs.

In some cases the movie sound was not mixed well in the studio, making the dialog hard to hear. In this case there’s not much you can do other than curse the sound engineer who thought sound effects were more important than understanding what people are saying.
