OK just to entertain your posit for a moment:
If you process the audio as you suggest and play it back at whatever level YOU think is appropriate - do you think it’s possible that some people will still think it’s too loud and others will think it’s too quiet?
If not pray tell what your magic SPL level is, how you manage to select people who all agree on what the optimum level should be and how it is possible that you manage to seat your entire audience at the same distance from the sound system.

If not, there would still be more people that are happy.
How many people say anything about where the average is anyway?
Some complain about loud. Some complain about soft. Never heard a complaint about the average.
You have avoided answering my question - what is this magic SPL you speak of that satisfies everyone and also how do you manage to deliver it to every seat in the house?
I believe you do not have an answer..........
You can believe anything you want.
Nothing magic. Just use your ear and be reasonable.
However, I would say from reading tech papers for max intelligibility that 65dB would be spot on.
So you don’t have an answer - just quoting an internet search again. Ah well......
I do not have proof yet.
But I believe just as firmly that I am right as you do the opposite.
You have nothing nada zip zilch squat bubkes zero ......
I have a tech paper based on measured data that says what the appropriate SPL level is for us. I trust that more than your blatant putdown attempts.
