Focal Aria sounds muffled and far away being run on a denon AVR-X3400H


New to the audio world had a vizio sound bar and wanted more so I sat down and researched and  audioned and liked theFocal Aria 926 but at home it sounds muffled and far away being run on a denon AVR-X3400H. Surrounds are mirage os3 sat surrounds they seem fine, sub is an svs pb 1000
I've tried moving them around the space but nada, do I need more power to them?  I just don't want to go back into this spending money without having a little better knowledge behind the purchase. And a little help plus it's black Friday soon so that will help save a little cash

I have made sure they are connected to the binding post correctly. Also they sound the same no matter where I am
Oh, last thing.

Make sure every driver is playing. Put your fingers on every one, lightly, except the tweeter.

I’ve had some Focal crossovers break a wire to a big coil in transit.


For the tweeter, just put your ear up close.
I’d re-run the setup configuration on your AVR...it’s possible the settings are wrong and it’s sending the wrong signal to your speakers due to either the setup or room correction.
