The calibration process, like verification, is a series of controlled procedures designed to give specific answers such as speaker position, delay time, equalization and level setting. Calibration answers are never as cut and dried as those found in verification. There is not a one-size-fits-all, step-by-step set of procedures for all system designs. Each application has unique combinations of speakers, processing and room acoustics. We need an adaptable cookbook ready for the hundreds of contingencies that arise. This section contains the standard procedures for calibration and enough support and explanation to provide a firm but flexible foundation to adapt them to each application.
