    Hello Dr. Toole,

    I think I just discovered more unexpected side-effects of data smoothing in frequency response measurements. The implications are such that the assumption of a direct-dominant sound-field for mid and high frequencies in the cinema may fall apart or at least need to be modified somewhat.

    Unfortunately, the private messaging feature here has a character limit, so I can't go into detail without sending a bunch of short messages, which is stupid. I'd rather not post this on the public forum unless we make a new thread for it elsewhere. Another possibility is that we converse by private email. My address is: edie.stephen@gmail.com if you want to go that route. Either way, I'll need a lot more than "1000 characters", and some images will probably help me explain things better too.
