Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: I would guess the op is wanting the watts he is using at the level he describes.

"Your measurement - Peak or Average"

I have dynamic speakers and what I do for measurements is walk around the room and listen.

The perceived SPL doesn't change except in a couple of spots where the bass stacks up.

If the SPL was falling at 6db for every doubling of distance don't you think I would notice?

If I move back as to double the distance twice that would be 12db.

I have a volume control with 2db steps. 12db would be 6 clicks on my volume control. 6 clicks is huge. Nothing like that happens when I move away as to double the distance twice.

"people listen to speaker in reverbrant rooms" and "above 500Hz or so the SPL at any point in the room was the same"
