Hey everyone,

Have you tried using an iPhone with an SPL meter application to calibrate REW? Will it work?

Cheers

Would it's mic have an even enough response at the lower frequencies for use balancing the sub level with the other speakers?

Hey,

Sorry I should have been more specific.

I have a behringer measurement mic, so I'm wondering what the easiest/cheapest way is to get the SPL measurements. I'd rather not go out and buy a dedicated SPL meter just to take one calibration measurement and then collect dust!

Theoretically I could take the measurements in the room without calibrating the SPL level, no?

Cheers
Adam

Yes, correct. In this case, any cheap SPL meter without a cal file will be fine, since it's a one-time, hand held, rough setting..

Okay, I get it now. :T No reason I can think of why it won't work. Even if it's accurate, but it shouldn't be a big deal. Just run the Set Levels routine as normal, and set it to 75 dB as usual. Be sure and run Check Levels before taking the measurement. If it shows too low, or clipping, just re-run the Set Levels routine and re-adjust for 73 dB, 77 dB or whatever.

[Edit - it looks like brucek beat me to the "Reply" button. :D ]

Wayne
