  1. Using REW to compare mic's

    REW Forum
    Pardon me if this is a dumb question, but can I use REW to measure the difference between two condenser mics that have 2 rings mini headphone jacks? I know it won't be anywhere near "accurate". I basically want to verify that they are "equal" in response. As crazy as the response curves might...

  4. Can Anyone Compare Behringer Equalizers?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Is anyone familiar with both the DCX2496 Ultra-Drive Pro and the DEQ2496 Ultra-Curve Pro Mastering Processor ? I have had the Ultra-Drive pro as an Electronic Crossover for the Newform Research speakers according to the manufacturer's instructions, for about ten years. I was using a Meridian...

But realy thanks to all those that take time and patience to help us all. Well I am thinking of painting my basement drywall to create a screen of 95 by...
  6. Poll: How does NFL RedZone compare to DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket?

    Even though they can't add NFL Sunday Ticket to your programming package, most of DirecTV's competitors are offering the NFL RedZone Channel now. Of course, it's fought back with a recent ad featuring a disappointed couple find out all their friends are skipping their game day celebration to go...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I have read several reviews on this sub being quite nice but how does it compare to some of the big boys like the css sdx15 or the rhythmik 15?
  8. Maealstrom 21" compare to both my Q18's

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi there, I have been thinking over the last few days about how a single 21" maesltrom slot ported or with PR's would compare to both my FI Q18 subs for output and SQ. Would I gain alot more output. I could afford to sell both my drivers to get one of the 21"'s. Here's a pic to show them...
  9. IYHO - What commercial subs would compare to 125L sealed Maelstrom-X ?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I know this probably can't be answered definitively but subjectively what commercial subs would you say compare to a sealed Maelstrom-X in a 125L internal enclosure powered by Quest 3004 (just happens to be my future subs :P )? Lets take another sealed 18" for example... Velodyne DD18. Aside...
  10. Please compare Rocket 450's in <$600 range

    Home Audio Speakers
    Hi guys, I know this might be a little below your preference, but I was wondering what opinions there were for other speakers in the price range of the Rocket 450's (<$600/pr). Talking towers right now. I listened to 450's (and for comparison, 760's but not 850's) over at 45minaudio's shop...
  11. Shiva Graphs to compare with SD-12

    REW Forum
    I figured out REW over the weekend, and here are 2 graphs I made with my 88.5liter vented shiva tuned to 25hz. First, near field. The SPL was calibrated around 85: Next is taken around 8 feet away, as close as the wires would allow to listening position. SPL at the proper 75db as I figured...
  12. How would dual SVS PB-13 Ultras compare to a single JL f113?

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I currently have dual f113s in a 6000 cu ft leaky room (effective 7000 cu ft) and I should say the performance is astonishing. The subs are operated in dual mono mode placed on either side of the room as that gives me a flatter response, larger sweet spot and more uniform pressuirization across...
  13. How does the BFD compare to the Velodyne SMS-1?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    OR the Outlaw Audio ICBM for that matter? I have no experience with these two. I was just wanting to know if anyone has tried them as well and what their thoughts were. TIA
  14. How do Berkline HT chairs compare to Palliser?

    Home Theater Seating and Accessories
    We were at Sears the other day and they had floor models of both Berkline and Palliser HT seating, and only in fabric and the mid-line leather finish (yuck). :huh: It was hard for us to figure out exactly how one would be better than the other. :wits-end: Especially considering that we want...
