Understood, but when you have two people that share watching 50/50, the common solution is the first measure is the point exactly in between you, and then cluster a couple of seats to filter them with the rest of the measurements. How many home theaters have one seat or are setup where only one person watches at a time? Applicable for 2 channel music maybe, HT there are trade offs. That is why the whole system is geared around that mythical MLP right in between us, it's the best solution there is. If I make my spot the MLP it skews everything away from her, also screws with the eq triangle I worked hard to get. Using measurements from the wall, I measure from the same MLP spot all the time and the results for distance and level are spot on. Right now the RF is 10.2 feet, the RL is 10.1 feet, the center is 10.6 and the subs are both 10.0 feet. Can't do much better.
The MLP position between us is also only about 18" from my left and her right, so it really works well. Plus to my right there is another chair and to her left there is more couch and another chair. That point really is the center of everything and we throw football watching parties. From what I have tested out, there isn't a bad sounding seat in the house. And to be honest, I think sub/speaker model and placement
have way more to do than mic position with resulting sound quality.
Ultimately I am calibrating to cover two seats, not one, and setting level to one side or the other would not make a lot of sense. As far as timing those horns are aimed properly and dispersing, its fine.
