8. Calibration > 63. Calibrate Speakers with a Sound Meter

Calibrate Speakers with a Sound Meter

With a calibration DVD and sound meter in hand, you can play a test pattern and set levels for your speakers.

Although the on-screen instructions on calibration DVDs [Hack #62] are clearly written, sometimes questions arise as to how to calibrate the audio portion of the system using the test patterns included on these discs. This hack deals with that process in detail, adding additional detail that is left off of many discs’ instructions.

Tip

If you choose to use the THX Optimizer [Hack #65] or internal test tones [Hack #66] , these instructions are also applicable, although the quality of both of these test methods is suspect.
