Looking to fine tune a Hi-Fi system? Leema Acoustics has updated its free loudspeaker calibration guide for 2022, ahead of the launch of some all-new electronics later in the year.

The latest version features a new speaker toe-in calibration method, using laser measurement. The free nine page PDF download now offers comprehensive advice on toe-in, complete with a number of easy-to-follow steps for the perfect set up.

The laser method, which uses nothing more than masking tape, a tape measure and a laser measure, is designed to help music lovers find the optimum toe-in position for the speakers they already own, as well as get the best from Leema’s Welsh-made electronics, old and new.

Originally published during the 2020 lockdown, the guide, created by Leema’s Andy Moore, uses the time-proven ‘grid method’ calibration, which is based on Moore’s 30-plus years of industry experience.

Although no longer manufacturing loudspeakers in Wales, Leema Acoustics has a long history with monitors: the company’s first product was a compact five-litre micro-monitor, the Xen. Commenting on the birth of the original, founder Lee Taylor said: “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.

I took them into commercial studios to use while mixing and other engineers said, ‘Can you make some for me?’ and things evolved.”

The nine-page full-colour PDF is available for download and can be accessed here.
