1. Look up the vertical coverage angle on your speaker's data sheet and insert it into the yellow Ang cell of the calculator. This will calculate the order, FAR, and LAR.
2. Repeat for the horizontal coverage angle.
3. Find peak current draw and insert that into the A cell.
4. What voltage will you be operating at? In the US, probably 115V. Insert that into the V cell. This will calculate the wattage used.
5. Find peak SPL and insert that into the Pk SPL cell. This will calculate the class.
6. Fill out the remaining cells using the speaker's data sheet.

Do you know everything you should about your speakers?

Maybe you know the model number and power requirements, but do you know the coverage angle and forward aspect ratio?

How long will it take you to find this information in the field? How many people will wait while you look it up?

Problem: the cursor readout in Smaart disappears when you move the mouse cursor out of the graph.

Solution: zoom in and maximize the graph resolution so you won't need the cursor read out.
