How to Create a Seamless Soundstage

Got a problem getting a smooth, seamless soundstage from your left main speaker across the center channel to the right speaker? Does much of the image seem collapsed into the centre? First, carefully adjust the center-speaker distance and level in your receiver's setup menu. Many enthusiasts run the center too loud. Adjust the center level loud enough so dialogue intelligibility doesn't suffer, but no louder. Try placing your main speakers so their front panels are even with the center channel, with the center channel further back, if possible (wall-mounting it behind the TV is another alternative). If the three main channels form a gentle arc facing your couch, with the center speaker the furthest away, you should experience a significant improvement in the forward soundstage.
