Default SPL meter corrections?

Are there corrections for the "digital" RS meter somewhere? I don't have an analog meter.

Tanks for that link, which describes how to mod the meter. I won't be doing that. I don't see any corrections. Are they the same as the analog meter?

These are what I measured on-axis for my analog model from the RCA output (not the meter movement). I doubt the digital model is much different. A positive number means the meter response is too high and vice versa. This is a comparison to a Behringer ECM8000 rather than an actual calibration, but the ECM8000 is said to be +/- 0.5dB up to 10kHz and perhaps -3 at 20kHz.....

FWIW, this curve is quite close to one published by ETF acoustic, and also to the curve enclosed with the meter instructions.
