    Guys,

    I know how to calibrate my speakers with an SPL (Radio Shack Digital) but rememeber a point from Nic Rhodes about 'always calibrating/reset before the next reading'.

    On the Radio Shack SPL, there is indeed a hole that says 'CAL'. I gather this means calibrate and wonder how I can use this to get the best and most accurate readings; if at all.

    Regards,
    Brad

    Because you´ll bugger it up. Better to have it reasonably accurate than not at all.:lesson: ;)

    I calibrate my SP meter every month or so, it's rarely out by more than 0.5dB, so i'm not sure it's that important, from an AV perspective.
