  1. Using EQ to cure dip +7.0 dB boost - good/bad idea?

    REW Forum
    Hi, I'm pretty satisfied with my adjustments to my setup following this thread here; however, I have a single dip at approx. 30 Hz I'm considering curing using the boost function in REW. I know that boosting is not considered an ideal solution since it'll lower my headroom, but will it really...
  2. All About 10dB Sub Boost

    Audio Processing
    The title of my thread is really the opposite of what I know. Well, almost. I think I know it's common practice to run subs 10dB hotter than the mains because it's a movie industry standard (or maybe only THX). :dontknow: Please pardon any repeats and please throw me a link if appropriate...
  3. dbx 120a for line level boost?

    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    Hey guys i have a DBX 120a sitting around that I was hoping to use as a line level booster minus using any of the sub harmonic booster. Would this work for my setup? Denon 3808ci to a Mini dsp 2x4 then to a dbx 120a and finaly to a Behringer nu3000? Thanks for your help...

    Creative Sound Solutions
    Hi, We have determined that the current table on the PE website is incorrect. Some of the amps have the right one which is attached . We're also checking the BASH300. Bob
  5. Will Audyssey MultEQ boost and flatten a sealed sub?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Do any of you know how Audyssey will affect the low end response of a sealed sub? Will it flatten things out with boost where needed similar to what a stand alone EQ or a LT circuit would do?
  6. 6-9dB boost to 47 hz... bad idea?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I was just playing with REW in preparation for doing some corrections with a DSP1124P. I have a bit of a hole at 47hz - and I can make it nearly flat with a 6-9dB boost filter (depending on which sub location I use) at that point. My concern is: am I going to do damage to my sub by doing that...

    Video Game Systems | Video Games
    Boost in Revenue for Online Pass ‘Hasn’t Been Dramatic’ Says EA According to publisher EA, revenue that has been generated because of the company’s Online Pass system has been significant but not as major as the publisher had hoped. The system itself is a response to GameStop’s used game...
  8. 1st Time Grapher 45Hz boost, how's the rest

    REW Forum
    After moving my subwoofer around a little bit and finally settling on my listening position for my primary spot this is the graph I have just made w/o any EQ using a ML Abyss Subwoofer through a Denon 3311. I have yet to check out integrating my mains as that shouldn't be a problem. However this...
  9. Effects of boost on power handling?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I think I know the answer to this question but would like more feedback so I can wrap my head around it. I have pair of LMS 5400 Ultra 18" both in 4cuft. sealed enclosures. During modeling with WinISD I saw that they can take 3200 watts each before exceeding x-max at about 10hz. Now if I add...
  10. Is it ok to boost low end?

    REW Forum
    I finally got all my adapters so that I can run REW. I had used the manual method with the excel sheet prior. It was fun but time consuming, so I have a great appreciation for REW. Thank you guys for putting together this program. Now to the good stuff. I have an epik legend, RS SPL meter...
  11. Is there a way to boost output db in sound generator?

    REW Forum
    I was doing some very simple sub testing one a couple that showed up. I just wanted to confirm all was well. They certainly work but it seems that maybe my input signal is not strong enough to get them to hoot with authority. I tested as well on a bench mark sub I have. Is there a way to...
  12. WinISD EQ boost modelling and associated amplifier requirements.

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I would like to know more about the amplifier requirements caused by EQ and how to model this in WinISD. In another thread I came across this regarding WinISD and EQ: It was my understanding that to correctly model EQ power requirements in WinISD, you utilise the fact that for every 3dB...
  13. Pre amp to boost mic signal?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I have a calibrated dbx rta-m microphone that I want to use with my laptop and REW. I have a Turtle Beach external USB card and a 48V phantom power adaptor. After a couple hours of trying to get the input signal high enough to work, I gave up in frustration. My question is this: Is there...
  14. Gamma Boost

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    Has anyone done gamma boost on PC for their CRT displays? I use PC as a source quite a bit. I was able to achieve ruler flat Gamma, 6500K tracking, great luminance... I've seen some jardware products on the market offering gamma boost for CRT displays. I was wondering what range do they boost...
  15. Shiva-x + O audio 500w = extra boost at 30-35hz

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I have been messing with this combo since day 1 of the build (4 months). Right now the shiva is in a 3 cubic feet sealed square box and it has what it seems to have a extra boost between 30-35hz. I have the O audio 500w plate amp set to -12db in that area but still during movies (DTS and DD)...
  16. Boost Modeling

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I'm looking at assembling a sub for the Grandkids. All HT. It doesn't have to be perfect. I have a 1.8 ft box in hand along with a 300W Bash amp. I have a plan to use a Dayton 12" HO with Fb and F3 around 28Hz. So, now I am wondering how the Dayton 12" HF or HO will work in that box if I...
  17. Adire Shiva mkiv and Bash 500 bass boost mod

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    So this is my first post and I'm sure everyone has heard this a lot but I am very new to the scene and doing my best to learn. So after 4 years of sitting in the box I decided to tackle the Shiva, I went with a 54l sealed enclosure and got a wicked deal on the Bash from Mark at Mach 5. So i...
  18. An inexpensive way to boost the subwoofer level

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I have amplifiers for my subwoofers with no volume level control. My source is -15dB low from my DVD player making it very difficult to get the proper amount of bass from the subwoofers. This also makes it challenging to measure, but not impossible. I would like to know if by adding an RCA line...
  19. Freq Boost Question

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hey guys, I was reading that a 3db boost down low takes alot of your sub. But they said a higher freq boost would not tax it as much. I have a new PB13 Ultra, so it's plenty capable; driver and amp wise... I have a narrow 63hz null that needs about a 20 db boost. (I cannot move the sub)...
  20. Sure would like to add some boost .....

    REW Forum
    .. but I will resist and work on 17,2 or 3 points in the 28-45 range, 50 and 71 with a goal of getting a as linear as possible 10db drop from 20 to 80. What do you think?
