Equator’s Q15 reference monitor
San Diego, CA (April 27, 2010)–Equator Audio Research’s Automated Room Response Calibration Software will now be packaged with every Q15 reference monitor.
Equator Audio Research’ Automated Room Response Calibration Software, featuring its patented Secondary Reflection Correction, will be included on a CD-ROM packaged with the high-powered 15″ two-way coaxial monitor, which has a 4″ voice coil for the large driver and uses a horn loaded 1.3″ titanium dome rear firing compression driver.
Recognizing the actual listening room’s contribution to the monitoring quality, Equator Audio Research developed the Automated Room Response Compensation Software in an effort to tame unwanted sonic conditions and aid in achieving a more accurate listening result.
By placing a small diaphragm Omni-directional condenser test mic at the engineer seat’s position, the Equator Automated Room Response Calibration Software is reportedly able to evaluate exactly what is sonically occurring at that spot. The host computer calculates and then sends compensation data back to each speakers’ internal CPU so that each speaker in turn delivers the appropriate audio. Multiple filters are available to compensate for each speaker’s boundary condition, location, existing room nodes and other EQ issues, as well as time-based secondary reflection comb filter phase problems.
The MAC/PC software resides on the recording computer, utilizing its A/D hardware. The Equator Q Series Monitors each feature an internal CPU. On the back of each is a CAT5 In and Thru, a series of dip switch IDs, a USB connection, and standard audio inputs.
“As we’ve placed many Q15s in high-end studios around the globe,” stated Ted Keffalo, Equator Audio President, “it has became apparent that most are already equipped with a fine test microphone, so including the software on a CDROM with every flagship Q15 model shipped seemed quite appropriate. While the software works with all Q Series monitors, the full room calibration mic kit will still be available for purchase for those needing the software and a test mic.“
