Thus Heavy Metal (LOL). With classical, jazz, and most pop, I don't think that would be likely to happen ... possible, but not likely. Most acoustical instruments put out 15 to 20 dB less SPL at...

As I remember, originally (several years ago), after running Audyssey without attenuators in the system, I manually re-set the SPL to be approximately equal at the MLP from each speaker...

Well, here goes. I hope this is not confusing. My LF, C, RF speakers (upgraded Klipschorns, and a modified Belle Klipsch in the center) are rated at ~ 105 dB at 1 wt at 1M. The rating has been...

I totally agree with this, especially since you said "not all of them." A few -- very few -- BDs are outrageously loud, and need to be turned down quite a lot. An even smaller number of them are...

I heard (was it here?) that IMAX theaters used a customized Audyssey or Audyssey-like room correction. The ones I have been in (just 2) sound too bright to me.

Most of the theaters that were...

Agreed.

BTW, I think IMAX's sound is overrated. While it is plenty loud, and would read that way on an SPL meter, it doesn't seem to have the frequency balanced impact of the old multichannel...

When the MV is set at 5 or 6 dB below reference, the dialog should sound plausible in volume (SPL). If a large sample of dialog doesn't sound natural in volume during a given movie, turn the whole...

I don't think choice "a" is a misunderstanding! I just wanted to see if anybody disagreed with it. I was concerned that there still might be an insufficient meeting of the minds.

Multiple choice:

a) "After" is "after," i.e., later in the circuit. In the case of an AVR's internal test noise (usually band limited pink noise) being after the Audyssey filters, "after" means...

I agree. Bozak Concert Grands would look so odd out in the middle of the room, that, surely, they would have voiced them to sound good against a wall. Also, when they were designed, virtually...

I'll bet hitting that headrest is just about right, depending on how many people are sitting in the row.

I once heard that someone at Klipsch suggested that someone at the MLP should be able to...

I'm assuming there is a separate input on your Anthony Gallos 3.5 Refs that feeds the woofer only, and that is what you have connected to the "sub out" on your amp. At what point do you have the...

Turn your center channel up 2 dB, or so. In your opinion, is it a nice, clear speaker?

Your front impact may be reduced by Dynamic EQ turning up the surrounds, which it does. If you are going...

I value tightness of bass in music, but not as much in sound effects. Is it true that, within the bounds of filter slopes, if you crossover all channels set for "small" to the sub at 80 Hz, but at...
