    I hope I'm in the right place. My HT is not finished and I only have this one picture that I will be using as a "before" shot of the redesign of the displayed area. If I've posted in the wrong area, please direct me to the right place.

    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...
  3. REW Forum
    Here's my first crack at REW with the BFD. This is in a livingroom setup, dual subs, behind the couch at each end and equidistant from the center seat. I took measurements from my 3 main seating positions on the couch and averaged the results, then generated a PEQ recommendation which I...

    Hello all. My story of what brought me to here is too long and probably not that interesting to you all. Short version is I have a very unique space with small space limitations. For now and for my first starter project this is what I was thinking. I have an old set of in/outdoor speakers. They...

    I've finally had time to run REW and check out how my SVS 20-39 plus is performing in my room. The room is about 2700 cu ft "L" shape and opens to a kitchen and hallway. The sub is in a corner and I really can't move it due to keeping the wife happy. I wanted to ask the very helpful members...

    I have gone through all the steps to measure my setup properly, including buying an ECM8000 mic and a Novation Speedio external sound... card? unit? Whatever. It seems to give a good frequency response even uncalibrated anyway (but I have of course applied calibration). I have a setup...
  10. REW Forum
    I used my new external USB sound card and I want to be sure this was done correctly. I used the right CD input on my AVR from my right line output of the card. First I calibrated my subwoofer volume on the back of it to 80dB in REW. Then I raised the volume of my AVR until it said 75dB while...

    I finally bought a SB External USB soundcard for my laptop. I think that fixed the strange graphs I was getting before. This is my first real attempt at REW. Any tips/suggestions are appreciated. This is after EQing with an Ultracurve Pro. Also, how do I narrow the frequency shown on the...

  17. REW Forum
    Well here goes, either my sub sucks bigtime, or I'm doing something wrong. I have my sub crossover in windows set to 250hz, as that is as high as the sub itself will go anyhow. I am using a sennheizer mic through mackie soundboard as my input. I purchased the fbq2496 today, they didn't have...

    The graph below is one of my first attempts at using REW -- does this look like everything is working (not that the room is perfect, but the REW setup I was using returned correct results?): Thanks for your input! Sorry for the format of the graph -- I hadn't read the thread on the standard...
