I’d say they’re about the same in that regard. BTW, some rude person scribbled all over the faces of your pictures!

Re: Back In The Saddle Again

young people and their graffiti!

Ok. I will have to see what I can do filter wise to address both. I did try a couple filters today for the 650 range. I did not take any measurements. Just listened at my normal listening levels and I didn't hear anything bad. Nor did the clip lights blink on the eq. Need to verify the new filters with some measurements later.

Any clipping will probably come first from the amplifier as it reaches its limits at the boosted frequencies, not the equalizer.

Re: Back In The Saddle Again

Yea, feelin' a little stupid after that comment. I should have known better. Need to check to see if there is any indicator for clipping on the integrated amp or not. The amp did not feel any warmer than usual either.

Re: Back In The Saddle Again

Just a small non-REW update. Working on setting up and using the Sabine's contact closure switch on the back of the unit. This will let me switch between different presets without having to use the software. Just the touch of a button.

I already tested one button with a multimeter and continuity. I then tested the adapter and button with the actual unit. The preset was verified to switch with just pressing the button. Just need to finish wiring and making it look pretty.

Re: Back In The Saddle Again

Ok, did a couple more measurements yesterday which raised a question? Which is more important, the individual speakers' response graph or the two combined? I ask because I was able to adjust the dip at around 660 Hz on each speaker's response, but when combined the dip did not change.

No thoughts? Wouldn't the two combine only effect the center image and mono recordings?

My System
It sounds like there is a reflection point that may need to be addressed with acoustic treatments versus eq. I would try putting the frequency back to what it was and then run a series of sweeps a put large objects, such as a person, in different places along the way and see what is affected on each sweep. While this is by no means a scientific process it is a quick way to identify areas that are susceptible to dead spots.

Re: Back In The Saddle Again

Thanks Dale, but as stated in the first post, no room for treatment panels.

It would be surprising if both speakers individually had the dip at 660, since the room layout you gave us in the opening post shows non-symmetrical placement in relation to the room boundaries. It would be enlightening to see measurements of each speaker separately, but regardless, if there was no change in response after equalizing both speakers at 660 Hz, then there’s nothing you can do about it, short of re-locating the speakers.

Regards,
Wayne
