SpeakerAngle is the first app that allows you to precisely measure and adjust speaker toe-in angles with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch in order to get the most out of your audio system.
SpeakerAngle works with any speaker make or model, in stereo and surround sound systems. Plus it's easy and intuitive to use, with no need for WiFi or Internet connectivity.
• Allows the accurate setting and matching of critical speaker angles for optimum sound quality.
• As you adjust a speaker in the room, on-screen speaker icons move and continuously update to display the current speaker angle.
• Onscreen number boxes change color to let you know when left and right speaker toe-in angles are identical.
• Includes user guide that can be printed or shared.
• Projects are automatically saved as you work and can be freely renamed and recalled.
To use SpeakerAngle, simply create a stereo or surround sound project and name it. Then adjust your speakers so they are facing straight ahead. Place your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch on top of one of the speakers and press the corresponding onscreen icon, then rotate that speaker towards the listening position.
As you do so, SpeakerAngle's onscreen display shows you the angle, using red-green color coding to guide you through a range of recommended angles. Next, do the same for the paired speaker in your system until its icon's number box becomes yellow in color, indicating that both speakers are identically angled. A handy onscreen Reset button allows you to start from scratch at any time and experiment with different toe-in angles.
When you're ready to fine-tune your system, a menu option allows you to purchase our companion app, SpeakerPro, which allows you to take precise distance measurements and receive intelligent toe-in recommendations. Available on the App Store now!
Ratings and Reviews
The app’s Guide says speakers and listener should form an equilateral triangle. This is false and in many, if not most cases, not practicable. The best that most setups can hope for is speakers pointed at the same spots relative to one’s ears, but even this depends in the listening room and thus needs to be adjusted via listening. Measuring angles can be a useful starting point, depending on the location, but no more. I’ve been using a protractor downloaded from online for years and found it handy. This app is a little more precise, but doesn’t replace listening and experimentation.
App does not actually do an audio test
This application is quite neat, but it is an angular mesaurement tool and does not perform any sort of audio analysis. Regardless of this limitation it is still useful for setting the speaker angle in your studio or home theater.
Very accurate. Much faster and easier than using a tap measure and other tools.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
