  1. Input clipping

    REW Forum

I always try to keep imput at -19dB, and always worked, but now i'm beeing forced to keep it under -21dB, otherwise it gonna clip when measuring... Is there any kind of option where i can tame...
  2. Bug with distorted / clipping pink noise during measurements

    REW Forum
    I'm using REW 5.12 connected to my AVR with HDMI using the ASIO4all (or whatever that's called) driver. Last night I was doing lots of measures and going into and out of the EQ window and having it send EQ data to my BFD, then remeasuring and rinse/repeat. That all worked fine for the most...
  3. Oppo clipping

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    Do you guys anything about the oppo players clipping signals? Have you experienced this? I saw somewhere that this a known condition and wondering if anyone here has experienced this. This image is supposed to be a capture of two signals. One from an oppo, and the other a cheap Sony (iirc).
  4. What does clipping look like in the results?

    REW Forum
    I made some measurements recently at higher levels intending to (carefully) see whether there were any obvious problems at slightly more intense levels. I can see differences between a 512k and 1M sweep at 95dB but I was getting clipping warnings from REW at these levels. Does this render the...
  5. Clipping ?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I recently purchased a 2x120w. amp for stereo listening. I was using my 5.1 pioneer 80w. per channel reciever to power TSi 400s which sounded quite good. I like music loud and clear and did not want to damage speakers due to distortion or clipping. My question is what is clipping and what does...
  6. Clipping Problem

    REW Forum
    I have not used REW for quite some time but with all the new features, I decided to recalibrate my system. I had no problems in the past with the older versions but cannot get the new version to work. I'm using an ECM8000 mic with an Audio Buddy power supply for the input and HDMI for the output...

  8. Sub rattling or clipping.

    General Service and Technical Information
    You may already know that I have been having some trouble with a AWS2000 B&W subwoofer that is in my system. I have had my gear down for some time and only lately have had the occasion to really try and find out what is going on. I first took my woofer driver loose from its cabinet to find...
  9. Clipping EP4000

    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    Quick question. I recently EQ'ed my subwoofer and set my sub levels. My AVR sub level is at -10db, miniDSP (.9v to 2v) is at -8db, and EP4000 is at 16. I was watching a movie a -odb and I noticed my clip light would flash at large at large hits. I had to turn down the volume to -7db to...
  10. question about calibration and clipping! Confused...

    Video Calibration
    Curious to hear some responses on this: I'm using the Spears and Munsil calibration disc. My setup has an Oppo-93 feeding the video signal via HDMI through my Elite VSX21THX which then is sending the video signal to my JVC RS45 via HDMI. In following the preparation and orders of operation on...
  11. BFD (1124p) input clipping, even at +4 setting

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    First post here, having a bit of an issue... I don't know if perhaps my H/K AVR254 just has REALLY hot pre-outs, but I am having trouble getting the level low enough to not clip on the BFD. Just as an initial test I am using the built in test tones (which seem to be just pink noise, with adj...
  12. DSP1124: How is it determining clipping levels?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    This is likely a silly question stemming from my own ignorance of exactly how the BFD1124 works, but can some briefly explain how the 1124 "knows" when my sub is clipping, or approaching clipping, without actually being calibrated to my specific subwoofer? As I watch the green, yellow, and red...
  13. adjusting volume to avoid clipping

    REW Forum
    Hi. It's been a while since I last used REW. I calibrated the SC this morning and checked the levels which I set to 75dB, but when I run REW I get the clipping error message. Now am I better reducing my processor volume then re-calibrating REW's SPL meter to suit, or should I reduce the sound...

  15. Taking First Measurements! REW newb - Clipping question

    REW Forum
    Hey All, First off, this software is amazing. I'm trying to setup my Epik Empire sub using a RS Digital meter through a UCA202 USB soundcard. I've taken a few measurements, but I keep getting the clipping message when I do my sweep measurements. The headroom reading starts out green but...

  19. Audible Clipping, but LED's still green/yellow.

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I am just setting up my BFD, and having set the input level and applied REW recommended filters I am testing it out at louder volumes. I have noticed an audible clipping noise coming from my sub, which disappears when I take the BFD out of the system. I have not noticed the LED's going up to...

It will let some sound through after a a minute or so then go back out. I have an EP2500 going to intentical subs and the other amp...
