Good Questions: How To "Firm Up" a Couch?

Pin it button big
This is NOT Debbie's Couch
Debbie has a question for the crowd: Recently I bought a used couch and loveseat. When we finally moved them in and started using them, we realized they are not as comfortable as we originally thought. I think the springs underneath the cushions are not firm enough, and you end up sinking down too far. Is there a way to "firm up" a used couch? I thought about putting a sheet of plywood under the cushions, but maybe there is some other answer?
