  1. Sub cabling

    Two Channel Audio
    I have a (stereo) pair of Rythmik F12G's w/the A370PEQ amps. My line stage has dual pre outs and no processing/xover. The A370PEQ's have RCA line ins and high pass filter RCA outs back to the amp (either high-power SS, very low power DHT SET or EL-34 pentode ultralinear, depending on the flavor...
  2. On Display or In the AV Closet Cabling Considerations

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Display your gear with minimal cable lengths or separate your gear in a closet and live with much longer cable lengths? These are two different approaches folks take and a lot of ad-hoc in between. The approach I have taken is to provision two a/v closets supporting three home theater...
  3. Another dumb cabling question

    REW Forum
    I'm almost ready to begin testing my newly-treated room, but I'm confused about the REW Interconnect diagram using an SPL Meter. I have a 2.1 monitoring system (TAPCO), and the crossover control is on the subwoofer. The diagram shows a processor sub-out going to an EQ box then to the subwoofer...
  4. Monaural out to line level (L/R) inputs

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Just got a new 7.2 receiver and am hooking it up to an older Polk subwoofer. The receiver has 2 subwoofer RCA outputs (monaural) and the subwoofer has a left and right RCA line input (it also has speaker level inputs/outputs but I don't want to use these). Can I use just one RCA cable to either...

  7. How to troubleshoot possible hardware or cabling issues?

    REW Forum
    I recently sent an MDAT file to a friend so he could analyze it. His response was "Something went wrong with those (measurements). I can't see any impulse response and the frequency response looks very fishy. There seems to be a resonance (25, 50, 100, etc.). I suspect there's something wrong...

  12. newbie needs cabling help

    REW Forum
    I notice in the guide that shows how to do the cabling that it only shows cabling going to a right/left channel. Is that just an example and can I go ahead and hook up all channels of a 7.1 system? (Sorry if the question is redundant to multiple other threads - I looked around and could not...

    Hi Folks, In the above thread for the ECM8000/Xenyx 802 combo, I am intrigued that both input and output connections to the PC sound card are on the RH channel. Whilst I can understand this for the input, I would have expected the PC sound card output to be on the LH channel, which was then...
