My temblor knocked the picture of my mother-in-law off the wall. I don't want to ruin my marriage.

I just bought a Temblor T8 (sounds amazing) but I don't know how to set the level relative to my Eris 4.5.

The user manual told me to get the level of the monitors up until it reaches 85db of loudness using an SPL, and the same with the Temblor until it reaches 79db SPL.

However 85db is way to loud for me (Ahem, neighbors...), so I set the Eris to 70db SPL.

My problem is that I don't know what is the relative level of db SPL to this for the Temblor T8. I thought 50db was, but it still caused an earthquake in Japan.

Could anybody tell me what to do? Also, can you tell me whether I should set the High Pass filter or not, and if so, to which frequency?

Please read the guide we published called "A Brief Tutorial on Studio Monitors 2016 Edition" available from the Temblor download page, (scroll to the bottom):

This will give you some insight into how to set up your speakers.
