  1. All About 10dB Sub Boost

    Audio Processing
    The title of my thread is really the opposite of what I know. Well, almost. I think I know it's common practice to run subs 10dB hotter than the mains because it's a movie industry standard (or maybe only THX). :dontknow: Please pardon any repeats and please throw me a link if appropriate...

    System Setup and Connection
    I have a calibrated (audyssey and roomeq for double checking levels) Onkyo 905 receiver that seems to play the LFE 10dB too high when using a 58av as a source.

  6. Difference between +4db vs -10db input level

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I've read in the setup guide that it is highly recommended to use the -10dB (home) input level on the BFD instead of the +4 dB setting (studio). When I first set up REW/BFD months ago I accidentally had the switch in the +4 dB setting and didn't realize it until well after I was done...

    REW Forum
    Hi, I have managed to measure the frequency response of my PB12+/2 using REW and in my room, the response is pretty bad with a very strong bias towards the low end of the spectrum (20hz to 45hz) and I have quite a big dip at 53hz - cross-over is set at 80hz. My rectangle-shaped room is pretty...
