Production Expert’s Mike Thornton has created an amazingly detailed and informative guide on how calibrate your speakers/room, using the free Room EQ Wizard with a measurement microphone and then transfer the data to our SPQ speaker processing solution.
While Mike uses his MTRX Studio, which comes with built-in SPQ, his approach is perfectly suitable for setups with DAD AX32, Penta 720, Penta 721s and MTRX units equipped with the SPQ Speaker Processing expansion card.
The guide has been organised into three parts, and each includes a walkthrough video, as well as a detailed step-by-step description in an article.
