Now Im afraid to do XT32, last time I think the result got worse....
Watch this space, you will see the result tomorrow.
When you run the XT32 calibration, try this for a change.
1. Optimize for the middle row.
2. Select the first (and most important) mic position in the exact center between the left and right walls, regardless of whether this is in the center of a seat or not. Make sure the mic is at ear height, and at least 12" in front of any seat backs.
3. Select the next four measuring positions, two to the left, and two to the right, along the center row spaced 18-24" apart, again keeping the mic at ear height.
4. Select the sixth, seventh and eight positions 12" in front of the first, second and third mic positions, again at ear height.
If you do this as recommended, the middle row will be optimized as far as the calibration goes. Then let's look at how the front and back rows fall out by taking the appropriate measurements: For each row, take four measurements, one for each seat, with the mic at ear height (for that row), and 12" in front of the seat backs. This will result in an REW measurement file with twelve measurements (all in one file). Make sure you label each measurement, e.g. Front row seat 1, front row seat 2, etc. Measure left+right+ subs, of course.
Send me the measurement file. We will examine average responses across all seats in a row and see if optimizing for the center row yielded a reasonable result for all rows. Who knows, by this time tomorrow, you may be on a REW vacation, watching movies with your friends!
