Saw King King today. Picture was focused, no laser pointers or cell phones, and the sound was 'fine'. Nice movie, but anyway. I really wonder, do (some) movie theaters process their sound from what comes on the reel? The sound at the theater was clear, clean, and accurate, but compared to my home systems, something seems different. For one, loud is never really loud. Some of the loud parts of the movie just didn't seem to get loud (is was certainly not mechanical limitations of the amps or speakers, no distortion or compression). Do they run a cap or compressor of some sort to keep the peaks from pushing the system? Sounds like a awesome way to use smaller speakers and amps in a big theater without blowing them or causing distortion to the audience. When Kong roared, it just was not impressive, just 'ROAR'... Also, the quiet parts seemed a bit louder and the loud parts a bit quieter - might be a result of the first thing, but it seemed like there was not a lot of dynamics in the film. At home, peaks in the film are LOUD, they are a lot louder than the regular stuff, and it is still clean (big speakers, big amps, and proper setup/calibration). In the theater, it just doesn't seem to be as dynamic. In this theater, I have no doubt it was setup by an engineer and nothing has been messed with - everything was dialed in very well. Any insight? Thanks!
