  1. Home Audio Speakers
    Hello, how are the following speakers compared with each other? Edifier Luna HD, e235, Luna and Harmon Kardon's Soundsticks III Wireless Bluetooth. Are they relatively good compared with other speakers available on the market? I have a Sony 49X900E 4K TV and a MacBook Pro 2017. In general...
  2. REW Forum
    I posted the response below at Emotiva's website, but I thought I'd post here as I'm looking for more technical experience for my learning benefit (I'm an EE although audio isn't my concentration). I am interested in improving my system even more, but I suspect I crossed the diminishing returns...

    Just finished doing a lot of testing on the LD22C LD22F tweeters and thought some may be interested in a look at them against the LD25X (discontinued) tweeter. More info from CSS will be coming but just had to give a little info These tests were done on a .25cft PE cabinet. :wave:

    GTA 5 gun combat compared to Max Payne 3 in side-by-side video Grand Theft Auto 5′s gun combat seems to have taken a leaf out of Max Payne 3′s blood-soaked book. An intrepid YouTuber has compared footage from both games to try and show the similarities. Watch it here...

    Xbox One captures your last 5 minutes of play compared to PS4′s 15 Xbox One will boast similar footage capture and sharing tech to PS4, but Microsoft has confirmed that the console will only record your last five minutes of play at any given time. PlayStation 4 on the other...

    I am looking at using a Crown XTi 4000 or XTi 4002 instead of some SPA-1000s for a sub running 2 cabs (stereo pair with electronic xover), two each LMS-r 15" per cab with independent cabinet space at 225L each, ported low 14.75Hz. I would like to set it up so only one driver is running form...
  7. Home Theater Projectors
    So Ive had my Pannasonic AE4000 up and running for about 8 months, I am using the auto aspect ratio as I have a 2,35:1 screen. When zooming to the 2,35:1 screen I have got the digital image masking on the top just right but I had to shift the image up to fit the screen properly this leaves the...
  8. General Screen Discussion
    MFG or DIY This is my first post and I know it may be a bit of a loaded question, but how do the best DIY screen options compare to the high end MFG screens? :huh: I really don't want to spend $3k on a screen if I can get comparable performance with some time and effort, but I also want the...
  9. SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I posted this on the AVSforum as well. Posting here as well to see what others think or have measured. So I have 3 mics now. I ran some comparative tests with all three mics with REW to compare accuracy. It seems the low end of the Radio Shack meter is much more accurate than the calibration...
  10. REW Forum
    Now that I've got REW 5 working, I've been doing side by side comparisons between the two versions, and notice that the 1:1 octave smoothing displays look markedly different. Here is a trace from 10 Hz to 25,000 Hz using a 75 dB target with 1:1 octave smoothing Here is the same actual...
  11. DIY Speakers
    I was wondering have anyone compared Jed dynamic series diy designs to something from energy or paradigm, and any other popular brand out there?
  12. Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    I've been eyeballing EP2500's for a while because they seem very well priced around $300. Playing around with the sub I've already got, if I were to do dual IB3 18's in dual 125 cu ft boxes, I'd only need 700 watts per sub... 2 quiet sleek 1000 watt plate amps mounted in the boxes would be...
  13. Home Theater Projectors
    Seems these would be close in competition and both look like winners, has anyone seen both and have time to share impressions? Thanks
  14. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Has anyone had a chance to listen to both of these amps? I have only lived with the KAV 2250 for a short time. The Emotiva has good reviews and I like the power. Thoughts? Thanks.
  15. REW Forum
    I've successfully used the Reckhorn B1 and BFD to get a smooth curve out of my sub, but the mains look hopeless. When I measure them together it's even worse. Is this just the way it works? Are these major drop-outs usually just accepted in an untreated room? My sub gave me this (B1 with ~17Hz...
  16. Home Audio Subwoofers
    Hello, new around these parts and a very fresh ht novice to boot, I was wondering how the fw10.1 might compare to the SVS entry level 10 and 12 " offerings?
  17. REW Forum
    Hello everyone, Long time lurker, first time poster. My question concerns the levels used for freq. sweeps measurements. The default on REW is -12.0dBFS, and the default target is 75dB. For appropriate reference levels (105dB for mains, 115dB for LFE), wouldn't a -30.0dBFS level sweep with...

I play allot of CD's and listen to radio allot, these will be for my wife because she is a BIG Gospel Music listener. My biggest problem is which one is the very best for what I want it for. We...

    During some cable discussions on another forum, Sean at Monoprice offered several of us the opportunity to evaluate their RG-6 component cables by sending us our choice of two cables to test. Since I'm in the process of incorporating a dedicated home theater (with long cable runs) in our new...

    I suppose this is more aimed at TomV than anyone else, but please feel free to chip in! Not being able to demo an Ultra/2 and compare to my existing ISD, what would you say the significant differences are in terms of performance and sound quality? My room is 21' 6" x 17' 6" so can withstand...
