  7. First Sub Design Attempt - Struggling!

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi Guys, I just recently decided I needed a sub for my stereo setup (NAD C352 with Paradigm 7se MK3 floorstanders), mostly to listen to music but also to make movies somewhat more enjoyable. I decided I was going to try to build and design the sub myself. While I do have "Loudspeaker Design...

    Hi there. I have had a go with REW and would like to know what you think of my results. My room is 26'/14', the sub is positioned mid way between my speakers, behind my TV, and about a foot off a wall facing sideways. I found moving the sub around had very little change in my results...

    REW Forum
    I think I did everything right, but please take a look and let me know what you think. First, the room is roughly 12'x22', in the basement, with underlay and carpet on concrete. It has never sounded very good, especially the subwoofer. There are a lot of corners in the room - three outer walls...
  11. First attempt at building sub, using Winisd

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Bare with me here. I have been reading all I can with regards to a DIY HT sub. I downloaded the Winisd beta and pro versions and have entered the parameters. The beta is easier to understand (a ton less info to digest) than the pro for me. Is it as simple as building the enclosure as recommended...
  12. First Attempt At Using EQ

    REW Forum
    I am hoping for guidance about how to create a smooth freq. response and how to understand what should be changed to improve a waterfall graph.

  15. First attempt at DIY 703 panels + REW results

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I spent the day placing ten 2x4 panels of DIY 703 rigid fiberglass panels on my walls. I didn't have any panels for the ceiling. Overall, I'm happy with the results. There was a noticeable difference and I'm pretty glad I did what I did. Highs are audibly crisper. Mids are easier to handle...

    Hi all. I've set my heart on mixing and evaluating a so called "simple mix" paint with ingredients found in Sweden. Ideally we can find ingredients found in all of Europe. So, its all based on the research of Harpmakers and HTS gurus. The silver ingredient I have bought is from...
