Default Re: NEW UPDATED Room Calibration for Film and TV Post

Well I don't deviate from the levels that Dolby publishes, but I do question the meter placement in a small room. What I do is mount the meter on a mic stand so that it is located where my head would be, pointed towards C for the LCR. I've tried both pointing at the surrounds and pointing forward for the surrounds, there's not much difference maybe a db. Position for sub calibration doesn't really seem to matter, I tend to walk around the room and average it.

Dolby has changed their website over 5 times since I originally posted this
and the links always change.
I will TRY to find it again, but it might be a few weeks.

That's incredibly annoying, but thanks for sticking with it! In the meantime are there any resources you could recommend for setting up/calibrating a surround sound set up? Right now I'm going to use the 30˚ from center for L and R and 110˚ for the Ls and Rs.

Many of them aren't working but I found the ATSC website helpful. They didn't have any specifics diagrams recommending how far speakers should be placed from the listening position or at what angle. I believe Dolby recommends 30˚ from center for L and R and 110˚ for the Ls and Rs. Anyway, thanks for any help!
