Might have to get a set of these. Looks so handy, and good thing I no longer have the 803Ds with their top mounted tweeters.

Is it really needed, I mean, can't people do the same without it?

 

I guess It's still cool, it has lasers :) I suppose if time poor it has an advantage for sure :thumb:

 

Is it child an pet safe?

Will make life easier for those who have to do this often, and on your own.

I definitely agree :)

 

I don't know the laser strength so would keep pets and children out of the room in use. Maybe nothing to be worried about but if they are strong enough to damage eye sight *shrug* Just a passing thought.

Would imagine to be brought into Australia it would have to comply with safety Regs. 
 

one of the shops here in Perth , is using them, apparently, you get a pair of send boxes, one for each speaker.  So yes for hifi shops they would be handy

Lasers are handy, especially for repeatable results. I'm using a pair of these and a long ruler at the listening position for adjusting and documenting toe-in angles.

So as well as aligning your speakers. It is also a pet and kid deterrent. Where do l buy one and how much?

I'd imagine for rounded top speakers etc one could buy some light foam and shape it on the underside with an electric carving knife or similar to suit the speaker 's shape leaving the top surface flat and then you'd be back in the game again. Interesting device.

Does a laser light perform the same as a sound wave at reflection points?

It doesn't have to, the laser is only showing the centre focus of the speaker alignment, as well as a representative laterally equal coverage zone. Different frequencies would likely have different effective coverage angles, but it gives you something to work with to keep angular symmetry at least.

That does distance, but doesn't show centre line and angles either side though, does it?

Make a template on speaker top, setup a mini tripod on template, attach laser tool, tweak and measure, rotate laser tool to angle 1, measure again... etc. You get distance which I don't believe you get in the Kalsu?

Combine yours, with the $9.00 jobby above, and the best of both :)
