Sound Pressure Level (SPL) Calculator

Use this simple calculator to determine the SPL level of our speakers at a specified distance.

Browse our speaker products here for further information.

Double the distance ≈ 6dB loss in SPL. (Inverse Square Law)

SPL (dB) Enter parameters below to get SPL results
