I think the anti spam filter in their contact page actively bars some ISPs. I have to make an international call to them so that I can get registered to purchase.

Re: miniDSP New Sponsor for the REW Forum

I'm recently getting into REW and have ordered the MiniDSP microphone (UMIK-1) that's been calibrated by Cross-Spectrum Acoustics. I've got only one sub. Once I measure the in-room response and want to correct for bass peaks/nulls - which MiniDSP device should I use?

Thanks.
Steve

Here is MiniDSP's product selection guide.

Hooked up miniDSP tonight. Powered it with a usb cable, LFE out from AVR to input one, output one to subwoofer, no output from sub.

Any ideas?

Did you configure the plugin?

Might be best to start a new thread on it.

Re: miniDSP New Sponsor for the REW Forum

I'm going to getting an unbalanced version of MiniDSP 2x4 (revision B) and plan to tame some peaks on the single sub in the room. The integration with REW seems simple enough to generate 6 correction filters. Don't plan on any boosts, just cuts only.
Question regarding power supply, says it's got a phoenix connector for power supply. What type of DC power, cable and adapter is needed to power the unit? Most seem to rely on the UBS for power.
Going to get the 2-way advanced plug-in. Is this what most use for EQing subs?

Re: miniDSP New Sponsor for the REW Forum

I found the Umik-1 Mic easier to use except it was a pain to get the laptop to recognize the Mic. It seemed hit and miss and I suspect the driver may not be 100% compatible with windows 7 so it depends on how up to date the windows 7 on the hard drive is at. As I use system restore to roll windows back to a few weeks ago it recognized the mic but not with the most up to date version. It is quite frustrating. It is definitely not the USB cable because I have tried two other ones, same issue.

Re: miniDSP New Sponsor for the REW Forum

I have a mini DSP 2x4 and love it. I have built 32 sets of speakers, all with passive crossovers, since 1980.
For the last 15 years I have been using Calsod to do computer optimization of passive xovers. This worked well. But it pales in comparison with the combination of the miniDSP and REW. Design goes much quicker and since I biamp the demands placed on the power amps are much lower.
Most importantly tuning within 2 dB of target response or better becomes trivial. I am never going back to passive xovers!
