SLM-100 SOUND LEVEL METER
The SLM-lOO sound level meter used with your frequency equalizer permits you to adjust
the frequency responses of your hi-fidelity system including the speakers and the room
which up until recently have not been considered part of the system. To appreciate the
importance of the room consider that Lincoln Center spent millions of dollars in recon-
structing the hall acoustics because the first design did not achieve the desired effects. The
concert hall had to be matched or coupled to the stage in the same way that your speakers
and hi-fidelity system must be matched to your room. The equalizer will allow you to
compensate for deficiencies in the speakers, as well as, allow for the furniture, i.e., chairs,
drapes, etc., in your room.
Your equalizer can be used simply to adjust the sound the way you like to hear it best or
with the use of the SLM-lOO, to adjust it for flat response. Following the procedures given
below should result in a new understanding of your room, speakers, and hi-fidelity equip-
ment, as well as, allow you the freedom of being your own sound engineer.
