  2. How do you balance driver outputs?

    DIY Audio
    If you have 2, 3, 8, 57, etc. drivers on a particular channel, how do you make sure they all match each other's output levels? I'm talking about an active system with one amp channel per driver, or at least one channel per crossover band. Do you size the amps to match the different driver...

  8. mini DSP: Balance or Unbalance

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I plan to add a DIY JL12W7 sub with an iNuke3000DSP to my current system with an SVS PB13Ultra sub. But since the iNuke's HPF can't go below 20hz, I am now thinking of getting the non-DSP pro amp and add a miniDSP so both subs can be EQ'd. Using an Onkyo 818 receiver, a miniDSP and 2 subs. What...

    REW Forum
    I have recently changed drivers from stock in my speakers. I would like to ensure the tweeters, mid and woofers are set at a proper level relative to each other. How do I use REW to achieve this kind of calibration? I do have the ability to attenuate the mid and tweeter.
  14. Using pink noise to balance levels

    REW Forum
    Hi all, I've been working the last few days to set up a Rythmik DS12 kit. I'm using an integrated amp instead of an A/V receiver, so the only crossover available to me is in the Rythmik's amp. I've tried high-passing the mains and also running them full-range, and I think I like the latter...

    I've been getting more into photography lately and acquired a whibal white balance card (http://www.rawworkflow.com/products/whibal/index.html). What's interesting is that the resulting picture doesn't look like the room according to my eyes. The autowhitebalance picture (394) looks more like...
