I have the BOSE Companion 5 on a Mac Pro. Sound level is fine/normal with iChat, web video or audio. When I play music from iTunes the sound level is fine, but only if I turn up the volume all the way. Recently, I purchased a couple of old classic movies from the iTunes store, and even if I turn up the volume to max I have a hard time hearing the dialog etc.

Why does the sound level vary from app to app? With iTunes the volume of sound goes down too much, while with other app I get blasted. Is it the fault of the BOSE? Probably not, as the sound level when I switch to the Cinema Display speakers is worse -- it's even lower! Is this a bug in OS X Snow Leopard?
