Lives for gear
In a proper 5.1 mix, dialog and v/o come from the center speaker only... not (or only very little, for special circumstances) the LR mains. That's a different issue from phantom centers.

But if you're hearing mono-on-mains as two separate LR speakers rather than centered on the screen, turn off the eq. Still bad? Check the speaker phasing. If you're still not hearing phantom, either one of the speakers or your room's acoustics is the problem. (Acoustic issues can be asymmetrical absorption/reflection, or even something as simple as sitting too close -- i.e., not in a roughly equilateral triangle with the mains).
