Problems with my projector

I know a lot of you guys are pretty tech savvy and as this is an audio problem I thought maybe someone on here would know.
So basically my problem is a recently bought a projector and decided to connect it to my stereo via rca.
The projector is a acer p1185 and it has a 3w speaker built in.
When I use it with my amazon fire stick and connected to my stereo the volume is significantly quieter than the output the stereo normally gives.
My stereo is about 6 years old but it's a decent one with 235w.
Normally if I listen to a cd on full blast the room will shack.
I will add that using a rca to connect to my iPhone it doesn't quite go as loud but it's nowhere near as noticeable as when it's connected to the projector.
All the volumes are on full, I have looked at the sound options on the projector and in the fire stick.


Only thing I can think of is maybe the firestick is trying to output to the projector in 5.1 surround sound? Can you tell it to output in 2.1 / headphone mode maybe?
