I'd guess that 75% of electronics consumers don't take the time to calibrate...let alone optimize their systems (video or audio)...

I guess for some good enough is enough?

This is true. And unfortunate. Some of us have shared space issues, but do the absolute best we can. And on the other hand, I've been in homes where I've seen all five speakers on the tv stand in rooms that would accommodate nicely.

I fully understand the shared space issue as I fall into that category. My point was and is people who go buy the AVR and speakers and then don't utilize the various room calibration programs installed in their receiver. As for the people who spend large amounts on a screen and projector and then slap a HTIB in place for audio to me that's like driving a Ferrari with a Dodge Caravan engine. As Chasint said these are educated and tech savvy people he knows doing this.

I dont understand ....Just because you are tech savvy doesn't mean you are into audio.

I know plenty of people who could design and reverse engineer electronic components. They could tell you when the next new chip from Texas instruments was coming out but, they knew very little and didn't care much about audio. Other than...umm Bose sounds good to them.


Your thread would be better to ask
Why wouldn't an audio person calibrate their speakers using the onboard automatic Eq ?
Just my opinion .

I think it makes them lazy and undeserving. Kind of like the granny buying a new vette when ya know she'll never use more than 1/2 throttle. And to the huge screen/htib thing? I couldn't agree more. Education doesn't equal common sense, and this kind of pairing seems a waste of a screen. Your analogy was spot on. How can you auditorily(I think I just made that up?) bolster a 120" screen with 2" drivers and a 10 inch sub?

Umm…not my thread but that's irrelevant. Probably a good idea to steer the thread back on topic now.

Is this a guess or a reference of hard statistics?

Probably not worth debating based on a guess...but if there are references for this, it would be helpful.

Yes, I know. Then the discussion continued as if it were fact.
