How do you compensate to hear the centre channel over the left and right

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Note: It's important that most who respond to this have matching loudspeakers for the fronts, no mismatching, only matching fronts please!

I like to know how what matching loudspeakers your using and what AVR or AVP amplifiers etc, but how do you compensate to hear the most complex sound that is placed in the centre channel without cursing the same problem with the left and right channels.

Hears a few films that you can try out

Alien
Alien Nation
Heat
The Fast and the Furious
Broken Arrow
The Truman Show
The X-Files movie
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Gladiator
Die Hard
Star Trek III the Search for Spock

If you don't calibrate your sound system you will not get the best sound.

I agree, you need to calibrate your sound with an SPL meter and one of those calibration DVD's like DVE or ARIA. Some of the newer receivers like my Pioneer Elite will have a microphone and builtin acoustic level meter that will do the job.
In fact its so acurate I dont even use my SPL meter anymore.

Whenever I get the itch to move my speakers a little here and there, I recalibrate.

proper system calibration and room treatments will reduce (eliminate) the need to fiddle with the center levels
