Audio Calibration:









Home Theater Audiophiles will go bonkers over this application.  Audiocalc is an application designed for positioning your speaker system for the optimal listening experience.  It has a frequency, period, and wavelength converter for positioning loudspeakers, a delay tool for setting distances and a volume tool for setting the proper amplifier power.  There’s also a modal response tool for placing the subwoofer.  Technically oriented home theater owners and installers will love this application.  Link ($2.99)




Reverb Times



If you are interested in acoustics, this application will allow you to find the best reverberation times for your theater.  You can select types of acoustic wall treatments that come into play as well as furniture, seating and the people within it.  It’s a handy app to combine everything you learned in Audiocalc to create the best listening space.  Link ($1.99)





Speaker Pop



This handy application allows you to test for polarity.  Simply put, you can discover if your speakers are wired correctly.  It sends a “pop” through each of your speakers connected into your system and determines if the speaker cone is moving in the right direction.  Very useful for first time home theater owners.  Link ($4.99)






Decible Level



This application provides one simple function; measuring decibel level.  There are several applications on the app store that do the same thing, but this interface trumps all of them.  As a little social networking bonus, you can tag photos with the decibel level and share them if you are at a particularly loud venue such as a concert or a sporting event.   Link ($0.99)
