I am little bit confused where to start the room acoustic analysis for Home theatre setup. First priority is for low end and the second priority is for mid and high end analysis. My question is Whether to choose SPL meter with line out like galaxy audio cm 140 or linear condenser mic like Behringer ECM 8000 . And also which affordable speaker is best for room analysis purpose.

Like I noted before, the cheapest thing you can find will work. If your computer has a line-level input, the Galaxy meter will work. If not, you’ll need the ECM/Presonus setup, or something similar. The mic will require an audio interface.

But if you go to that much expense, it makes more sense to get a calibrated Dayton EMM6 from Cross Spectrum Labs. The calibration will make it more accurate than the Presonus mic, for the same price.

Regards,
Wayne

Can we do low end acoustic measurement using spl meter?
In my country extech 407730 is lesser than the galaxy cm 140 ?
