    Hi Friends,
    Could you kindly give your comments on my following statement?

    "In a home theater if all the speakers are correctly SET and ALIGNED and if the room acoustic are perfect then in such situation, a single MONO signal if sent to all the speakers namely L-C-R and LS-RS then at the SWEET spot it would seem as if the sound is coming exactly from top of the listeners head"

    L - C - R

    This is what speaker level calibration with an SPL meter and test tones are for. Very few rooms in a hometheater are ideal for sound, so calibration and placement take on a more significant role. Calibrating each speaker idependently is required, relative to it's placement within the room.

    Thanks for SPL meter suggesstion I am sure I need to buy SPL meter. Till then I was thinking this would be a good way to check speaker levels and positioning
