Re: Sub placement room calculator

Not sure if you're played with it, but REW has a room sim feature that does what you're looking for, to an extent. It is based on calculated room modes, but obviously does not take into account environmental variables as discussed above. I have found it to resemble measured response in my HT, however the simulation tends to exaggerate the anomalies.

Re: Sub placement room calculator

I don't know if this thread is dead yet, but one easy trick that makes it so you don't have to drag a heavy sub all around the room is, place the sub where you sit.
Then crawl around the room till you find a spot that sounds the best.
Then move your sub to that spot that sounded good and go sit in your chair, and enjoy.
.
This method sounds somewhat ridiculous, but many people who are allot smarter than me swear by it.
.
Of course, using REW with a good mic does help with setup and there are many levels of complexity that you could use, starting with the method I just mentioned to using REW or a better laptop based setup system to using SMAART if you have the money for such a Pro system.

Re: Sub placement room calculator

I prefer the room crawl. Quicker faster and more accurate then the calculator.
