Free Speaker Calibration Guide Thanks to Leema Acoustics
It's fair to say that more songs have been streamed and more records spun in the last few weeks than likely ever before with the current COVID-19 restrictions in place.
With more time on our hands, the UK's Leema Acoustics decided to give something back to the industry. They teamed up with Andy Moore of MIAN Audio Distribution (Leema's UK distributor), to produce the 'Grid Method' speaker calibration guide. The guide is based on Moore's 30 years' industry experience is a seven-page full-colour PDF and is available for free download.
Recognising the importance of the loudspeaker as the final interface into the room, the guide will help not only Leema Acoustics' customers, but others too, “to ensure correct speaker placement and, therefore, realise the full potential of their low-distortion Welsh-made electronics.”
With some simple tools including a tape measure, marker pen or masking tape, 12” vinyl record cover, note pad and pen, spirit or bubble level, headphones (optional) and of course, music and ears, you'll be well on your way to optimising the speaker placement in your listening space.
And yes, just a few centimetres in each direction really can make a remarkable difference to the sound quality from your audio system and space.
