I just noticed the REW graphs you already posted. The original position looks to be the best. Your last graph has a nice curve in the low range but a large and wide dip in a very audible area. Maybe you BFD can correct this.
Yeah, I wasn't concerned about anything over 80hz on those graphs - those were subwoofer only, so I was hoping to see that fill in when I did a full range test. Unfortunately I only had my SPL meter's microphone so I didn't trust the test results for anything outside of the "bass" range

If those graphs are truly accurate - it kind of stinks because I really want to move the sub to the front of the room for aesthetic reasons.

Aaron,

Are you planning on attending AKFest?
I'm not sure what or when that is?

New toy showed up today while I was at work;




Looks like the USB to MIDI cable that cost me $.01 should be here next... and the XLR cable with the phantom power/external soundcard should be here Saturday or Monday...
Woohoo!

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

Let me know if you do - maybe I can drive over and meet you there depending on the baseball schedule......

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

Looking more into it - I'm not sure if I will go or not... I'm not a part of that forum, and I'm more of a "budget audio/home theater" type so it may be a bit out of my league

Aaron,

I am looking forward to your feedback on how your rig works for you - I am going to have to start getting gear together for running REW and need to create a shopping list as well.

Joe

I'm probably going to need to wait until next week to really use the new rig. I hooked it into my computer last night upstairs in my office to see if I could figure it out and realized that the pre-amp has a headphone output with a 1/8" jack so hooking into the system should be easy with the cables I already have. I forgot about needing a XLR to 1/4" TRS cable for calibrating the soundcard/preamp, and I still need 2 or 4 RCA to 1/4 TRS adapters to hook up the BFD - they are $0.30 from monoprice or $5 from radio shack.

A couple of observations already: the EMM-6 is a great deal at $36 on amazon right now. It comes with its own calibration file that can be plugged right into REW - that is a nice touch. The ART pre-amp seems easy to use - but the purple writing on black background is hard to read on the back of it when it is powered on. The "power" light is very bright, so make sure you figure out what everything does ahead of time.

Add to the parts list a XLR male to 1/4" TRS cable for calibration and "loop back" that I picked up at guitar center today...

So that makes the shopping list for anyone that wants to do the same:
1 Dayton EMM-6 microphone
1 ART USB Dual Preamp
1 XLR microphone cable (mic to preamp)
1 1/4" TRS to male XLR cable (preamp to preamp for calibration)
1 1/4" TRS mono to RCA adapter (to run output to AVR)
That should do it...
