    Hi,

    I'm very happy to have found my way here.

    One question I do have may be a matter of clarification. I've read up about matching speakers of equal timbre (I think that's the term I've read) and voice matching to produce consistant audio, and was wondering if these terms are used interchangably toward the same goal? Or are they two seperate considerations? Any input would be appreciated, thanks!

    Hi Carl. Welcome to HTF! [​IMG]
    Yes, the terms "tone matching", "Voice Matching", "Timber Matching" are used interchangably.
    As more and more movies are doing things like sending dialog to the L/R speakers when the actors are shot wide, having 3 tone-matched speakers up front really makes a difference. (Not to mention all those special effects that transition from speaker to speaker.)

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks for the welcome, and the reply!

    I had a feeling this was the case, but I had this little twinge of doubt after visiting some speaker manufacturer sites and seeing the way different terms were used.
