I thought I remembered reading somewhere that when setting up a home theater system, you were supposed to play a track at -12db and bring the volume up to about 80db. That was supposed to help with the whole "movie theater experience" as it would allow you to also hear the quiet stuff well and the loud stuff would sound loud. Problem is, I read this article a while ago and haven't been able to find it since and would like to know what the numbers really are. I really have no idea if it was -12 and 80, that's just what I think I remember. Does anyone who knows any better have some concrete numbers?
