  4. IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    I have tested various positions in the ceiling for where I may install my IB setup, but I need to know how far back would be considered too far without causing any problems? Currently, the best place based on measurements, is slightly off center and about 4-5 feet in front of the listening...
  5. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    As many of you should already know that receiver has 5.1 channels, but has the option to add an external amplifier via surround back RCA outputs and turn it into a 7.1 channel receiver. The thing here is that there's so many options to do it that I'm undecided and was hoping to get some advise...
  6. Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    LOL so by that title Im sure you thought there was going to be one but my question is do you think that a 4th movie would be a good idea? I mean if Jurassic park can do it why not Back to the Future! Michael J Fox still could play a part and maybe have one of his kids come back in time so the...

  8. New Member Introductions
    Recently moved to Minnesota from the UK and got back in to the audio again after many years in the wilderness. I build my own speakers, amps etc whenever possible and hoping this site will give me new stuff to research, ponder and consider. Off to make some posts and do some reading...
  9. REW Forum
    Hey All, This is a new guy kind of question. The Dayton mic I am buying and all mic's I guess need phantom power? Correct? If I am doing a measurement that requires Loop Back Timing can I use the XLR connection? I think NO. Or I believe the correct way would 1/4" balanced or unbalanced from the...
  10. Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    It’s time for a trip down memory lane with our old friend the cassette tape. Just a smidge over 50 years ago, the cassette was introduced at the 1963 Berlin Radio Show. It was met with interest and intrigue, but settled-in as second fiddle to the rather ungainly 8-track tape and the audiophile...

  13. REW Forum
    I'm trying to get back into taking measurements and having an issue, no input from my behringer mic. It's connected to a Art Dual Pre sound card and I had no issues before but for some reason, this has popped up. I'm on a macbook pro running Mavericks OSX (I haven't made any measurements since...
  14. SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I have just received my Radio Shack 33-2055 meter and I install new battery and turn on and get the LO display on all settings. My iphone app db meter is reading around 60 db but the Radio Shack meter does not register a reading at all. Just LO. I am assuming that the meter is faulty and will...
  15. Two Channel Audio
    Over a decade ago, a friend of mine introduced me to his two channel audio system. At the time, I was just getting into home theater audio so I had just invested in a system for this purpose, but hadn't given much thought to the audiophiles chasing that special sound out of just two speakers...
  16. System Setup and Connection
    Having an odd problem. My BenQ w500 projector seems to enjoy turning itself back on after my home theater system is powered off and I've left the room. My setup: BenQ w500 < HDMI > Onkyo TX-NR929 < HDMI > Popcorn Hour A-400 and Panasonic BDT-220T Blu-ray player. All of this is connected...
  17. System Setup and Connection
    The place I will be moving into has a very open concept living room which is making placing speakers difficult. The front left, right, and center speakers are no problem, however, I'm unable to place the surround left speaker anywhere (it would either have to be in a hallway, in the kitchen, or...
  18. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I am swimming in PDF literature, trying to understand basic zone functions before purchase of a new a/v receiver. The budget is $1500 +/-, and I've researched Pioneer Elite SC-7*, Yamaha Aventage, Denon X4000, and a few Marantz models. But stumped is me. With the risk of being too vague, I would...
  19. Home Theater Systems | Equipment
    Due to the shape of my home theater, I can't get stereo speakers to fit at the rear of the theater. I have an existing 7.1 setup on an Onkyo TX-NR929 with RSL's 5.1 set up and two Polk satellites at the top of my front soundstage, giving me the PL IIz setup. The Surround Left & Right speakers...
  20. Home Audio Speakers
    I have Emptek speakers for mains, center and surrounds. I am thinking of adding rear surrounds for a 7.1 system. My side surrounds are their bi-polar speakers. I am not sure if I would benefit from using the same speakers for the back surrounds or if I should use one of their direct...
