I have found that precise equalization of volume from front and surround speakers using the test signal usually included in multichannel equipment is a waste of time. Relative volume on a multichannel disc is at the discretion of the mix engineer, and I don't always agree with him. So, after adjusting for equal volume, when necessary I tweek things up by ear for each disc. My system has gain pots (volume control)on the electronic crossovers for the front channels, so it is easy to do this. (I tweek the SW/Main crossover frequency also, but that's another issue).
