Setting Up Your Speakers

How To Select The Correct Monitors

A monitor, by definition, observes, checks, controls, warns or keeps a continuous record of something. An audio monitor, studio monitor or monitoring speaker is more than just a good-sounding loudspeaker. It is a device used in the process of recording, mixing or broadcasting audio in any environment where accurate listening is needed. A monitor is a professional tool.

How To Place Your Monitors

To create the ideal listening experience, several aspects need to be taken into account when placing the monitors within the listening space. First, you need to identify the listening area within the space and consider where the listener will be placed in relation to the space as well as the studio monitors. These will be influenced by the wall reflections and radiation space around the monitors. With careful planning, your monitor placement will help you enjoy the best possible listening experience!

Monitor Calibration & Improving Acoustics

The acoustic environment of the listening space has a major influence on the sound quality. Walls, ceiling, and floor as well as large objects like mixing consoles, tables, equipment racks, and furniture cause reflections.
