CHAPTER 12 Calibration

The stage is set to complete the optimization process. The system has been verified such that all of the components are known to be in working order. Speaker positions have been roughed in and we are prepared to begin setting signal processor parameters.

Calibration operations progress from simple to complex. Each of the verified speaker subsystems is given initial alignment settings. These subsystems are then combined into larger subsystems, with secondary adjustments being added to compensate for the effects of summation. The process is complete when all related subsystems have been grouped into combined systems with minimum response variance throughout the listening space.
