Volume of Sonos Ones as Ambient Surrounds Is Too Loud

I have Playbase, Sub and two Ones as rear surrounds. Surrounds are in ambient mode (not "full" which I only use for music) but for content that clearly uses cinematic surround sound, the rear Ones are overpowering, to the point of distraction. Dialog and content from the Playbase can often seem too weak in comparison.

Turn down the effects on the slider - on same page in Settings as when you select ambient/full.

Thanks. I thought it might be the answer but that screen only has sliders for TV Level and Music Level. But I'll experiment to see what happens.
It means the level of the surrounds when listening to TV audio.
