    If you don't want to change your speaker, you may cut the bass and treble on your receiver and turn up the volume.

    Have you tried changing the size setting for your center channel? Small might sound better. Check your manual to see if you can do that with that receiver.

    since you have a very tweakable receiver, try adjusting the distance from the center speaker to your listening position. Or, remove the center speaker, set your reciever to "none" for the center and allow the Denon to create a phantom center. Depending on the setup you can achieve an improved front array of sound with the phantom mode.
    From my experience, a phantom center sounds better than a non-matching front.

    perhaps try replacing the bose and getting a couple decent towers and a center to match? :/
    Warning: My advice is based on what little experience I have under my belt, building on the last 5 years, and is in no way intended as scientific facts. Please also consider that, like the average human being, I may tend to be a bit bias toward my own personal preferences in audio. Use your own judgement and common sense, and please always listen for yourself. If it sounds good to you, the hell with what others say.

    On my cheapo Koss C 220 system, under menu there is a control called DRC which basically in effect lets you adjust the balance between dialogue and background music. I would check your menu to see if you have something similar. This menu also lets you adjust the distance of each speaker & decible level (they're all under audio output in the menu).

    Now this is the best advice on this page. You got L/R speakers that throw a majority of their sound against the front wall, and a direct radiating center speaker throwing most of its sound out into the room. Two different technologies, no wonder you are having problems.

    I would replace all three because there is not much you can do with this setup.
