Multichannel Level Alignment, Part II: The Influence of Signals and Loudspeaker Placement
The correct level alignment of multichannel reproduction systems is critical to the quality of the reproduction. This paper-the second-discusses the results of two experiments employing the nine test signals discussed in Paper 1. Experiments employing the method of adjustment, have been conducted in two standard listening rooms, considering both symmetrical and asymmetrical loudspeaker set-ups. It is found that the calibration signal does not play a major role in the level alignment of multichannel systems whilst source distance is quite a dominating factor.
