When the sine wave is played and GLM does the work.

at what SPL level is better represented the correction of autocal in the room when you play music/mixing?

in my case I am using 8351a

85db spl?

Hi,

One of the advantages of an active monitor/system is that its frequency response is very stable, it stays the same whether you play at low or high level. The sine sweep during AutoCal is being played at approx. 85 dB (at the mic) but it doesn't mean that you would have to play your music at the same level to achieve the same flat response.
