Default Advice for dialog issues in setup

I currently have a 3.1 setup and while I am generally happy with the performance of the system when listening to music, I find that dialog from the system is hard to understand at times when listening to movies and some shows. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how I could tune my system better or if I should look to upgrade the speakers and / or the receiver. Here is my current setup:

Receiver: Onkyo TX-SR508
Center Speaker: Polk Monitor CS2
Front Speakers: Polk Monitor 60
Sub: Energy XL-S10

Thanks

something is really wrong here. Do you have the AVR setting on stereo when you listen?
