Re: IMAX Audio Technology?
Lots and lots of speakers. Honestly, the theaters ive been to have never sounded all that great, a lot louder than your average cineplex, but not much better sounding. It'll kick you in the rear, though. I actually walked out of 300 with my ears ringing like i was at a concert and forgot my earplugs.
I guess when you factor in the sheer volume of sound, the quality of it becomes more impressive.
I remember in middle school going to the OmniTheater at the Minnesota Science museum, which now is both IMAX and Omni, and the guy said it had 5000 watts of power and then said that was a hundred times what "your Mom adn Dad's stereo have".
Being the loudmouth backtalking brat that I was (AM), i yelled that mine had 400 watts, and his math was way off. I almost got sent home.
