    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I have an Onkyo TX NR5009 with an Emotiva XPR3 connected to the receiver via RCA wires to drive the front left, right and center speakers. Does this setup disable the receiver LRC speaker connections, or can I connect an additional set of LRC speakers to the receiver via the normal receiver...
  3. LMS-Ultra 5400 build; worth adding additional smaller subs?

    I am building a single TC Sounds LMS ULTRA 5400 18" in a 4 cubic foot sealed box and plan on using it in my enclosed basement theater with dimensions of approximately 12’ x 19’ with 8’ ceilings. This DIY hobby has left me with quite a few subs and no logical place to put them. Is it even worth...
  4. Additional Help Requested

    REW Forum
    Hey again, So I just updated to the latest beta version of REW and turned off direct monitor, which apparently resolved the active monitoring path. I'm under the impression that I should be aiming for a target level on the scans around 75dbs, but the scans I've attached when setting test levels...

    System Setup and Connection
    Hello, I have an older Kenwood VR 705 receiver that I have in my living room. I have it hooked up for 5.1 surround sound and works great. I want to hook up a set of outdoor speakers on my patio, but my receiver doesn't have an A/B selector option. Is there a way this can be done, without...

    System Setup and Connection
    I've been doing a lot of reading up on the internet about connecting stereo speakers to a TV, but nothing I've read seems to fit my situation. I have old, basic equipment - no HDMI or anything like that. Here is what I have: Panasonic SC-PM20 Shelf Stereo system Emerson EWL20S5C LCD Color TV...

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Now that I have my LS9's want to add more treatments to make the room more suited for the new speakers. Problem is I don't know much about how best to treat a room for this type of speaker, or in general for that matter. The room they are in has ATS panels, and a GIK tri-trap pair. The room...

  12. Additional factors to account for when calibrating?

    REW Forum
    I know that you are supposed to use a cal file for your mic/spl meter to be used and also you are to create a cal file for your sound card. My question is if there are additional pieces in the signal chain why not make the cal file account for them as well? Like the Xenyx mixer, additional...
