Hi-Fi specialist Leema Acoustics has published a free speaker calibration guide music lovers wanting to get the best from their hardware. The result will be of interest to Hi-Fi enthusiasts and custom installers alike.

The Welshpool-based manufacturer, founded by two ex-BBC sound engineers in 1998, has teamed up with Andy Moore, Leema Acoustics’ Export Sales Business Manager at UK distributor MIAN Audio Distribution, to produce the Grid Method speaker calibration guide, which is based on Moore’s 30 years’ industry experience.

The seven-page Leema Acoustics speaker calibration PDF is available for free download.

The free speaker calibration guide has been produced by Leema in recognition of the importance of the loudspeaker as the final interface into the room. It has been designed to help Leema Acoustics’ customers (and others) ensure correct speaker placement and, therefore, realise the full potential of their electronics.

Leema Acoustics history with loudspeakers is often recounted. The company’s first product was a compact five-litre micro monitor, the Xen. “I couldn’t find a really high-quality micro monitor for home and studio use; they were either compromised in the bass, or in SPL capability. My co-founder and I decided to design a micro monitor of only 5l volume with a bass response from 55Hz -6dB to 25kHz +/-1.5dB.”

This was quite a tall order and took a long time to achieve, but we managed it and produced some speakers for our own use. I took them in to commercial studios to use while mixing and other engineers said, ‘Can you make some for me?’ and things evolved.”
