Hello speakeguru, and I found the pdf that to mention, I translated a lot and there are things I can not understand.

Example: 1.2 m avobe floor level at 3 m distance

I understand that Calinda must be 1.2 meters of height and hear at a distance of 3 meters?

Thank you Carlos.

No, Calinda on the floor, at around 3 metres from front of speaker, the ear of average listener sat down should be around 1.2 meters from the floor. This will get the flattest frequency response without any vertical "beaming" of frequency bands around the crossover frequency (dips and humps).

Thanks Terry.

The entire range of KEF topics available is posted at the KEF museum website, along with pretty detailed information about every single loudspeaker system made between 1960 and 2009.

Not quite. Vol 1 No 1A is not on the KEF site, but is available on this site.
