Sound Quality — Position | Level | Clarity | Distortion


Sweep Tests – Low Frequency Tones

These tests will be at the sound level of a loud movie, 10 dB below than peak. Listen for rattles or other noises from the air conditioner or speaker chains or lamps.

Unwanted Noises?


Silence Measurement

Is the projector louder than it was previously? Someone needs to know.

Set your sound meter to C-Weighted and Slow. 15 seconds of silence.

C-weighted, Slow, using iOS program "dB Volume"
