  1. Bass trap material confusion

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I have read and searched all types of professional and DIY bass traps. I plan on making my own DIY bass traps approximately 2ft x 4ft using insulation and Burlap to cover the panel. But I also read that Microsuede can also be used. I thought the bass trap material required a breathable...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hi, I'm in need of some assitance in understanding the AVR-Denon 2113ci and the Audyssey option. Specifically, the priority given by Audyssey is that Wide channels superceed Height but the manual for the AVR only mentions Height so can anyone confirm if the Zone 2 channel can be used as Wides ...

  7. SACD Sampling Rate confusion

    Audio Processing
    So was listening to my Living Stereo SACD of Rachmaninoff Concerto #3 tonight and comparing my new(er) Sony BDP-S370 to my Yamaha DVD-C961 and was surprised to see the Yamaha sampling @ 88.2 kHz Sony playing back @ 176 kHz. Any idea why my Yamaha wouldn't sample at the same rate as the Sony...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Well I got my IXL 18.2.2 but I'm unsure of the speaker terminals. It looks like it would unscrew but it doesn't I look in and I see something like a spring coil (just one bit though). Any ideas on this?

    System Setup and Connection
    :ponder::help::dontknow:Hello Guys and Gals, It's been awhile due to death in the family. Question, I connected all my 5 speakers to Emotiva UPA 5, so all of my speaker jacks are not in use on my Harmon Kardon Avr.

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I have my BFD setup and EQing my sub perfectly from the left channel (thanks to this board and the great manuals and how to's :clap:). Now I want to take advantage of the second channel. I want to use it to cutoff anything above 50HZ and then send that signal over to another power amp which...

    Ok I'm totally confused and looking for some more advice on this. I am looking at turnign the pair fo 15" Rockford Fosgate 15" sub woofers into HT. Now, I was told it would be a decent DIY compared to some commercial applications, and I have been told it would be garbage. So looking for more...
  13. confusion on subsonic filter adjustmets

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Ok, Ive been trying to figure out how to properly use the subsonic filter on my PB13 Ultra. I'm not sure if moving this to the SVS sub forum is where I want it to be as this should pertain to alot of different subwoofers not just SVS. I was under the impression that the subsonic filter is used...
  14. More confusion on house curves and target levels...

    REW Forum
    Hi guys, The more I learn about REW and sub calibration in general the more easily I confuse myself (and that already easy enough!). I started thinking about my application of a room curve (7.8dB between 32Hz and 80Hz, in my case), and how I may be completely misunderstanding several things...
  15. confusion about the new HD audio formats

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    This is still confusing me. I posted a question in a thread farther down about my A2 sending the TrueHD audio to my Onkyo and received the answer I wanted but now I have a brand new Samsung BD P1400 BluRay player and I understand that it does send the TruHD and DTSHD directly over HDMI. My...
  16. Confusion W/ RS Correction Values

    I can swear there was conflicting :hissyfit: values pertaining to the digital meter used as a microphone from peoples posts and various excel programs. I now have various excel programs i.e. snapbugs, HTS etc etc. that have different values which give me different curves. What is the new...
  17. Retune confusion....

    SVSound
    Hi all, I just re-tuned my dual 20-39 PC+ cylinders down to 16Hz, and was somewhat confused with the resulting FR. Based on the FR postings at SVS and other reviews, I expected to lose 3-4 dB in the 28-32Hz band as a trade-off, but I thought the rest of the range (above 32Hz) would be...
  18. calibration confusion!

    REW Forum
    OK, I have tried this several times and had problems with my sound card - possibly conflicting with my on-board sound. However, I think I am getting there. I get to the check calibration part and it produces a graph like this: This doesn't look like the samples! Is it clear from this where I...
  19. Comb Filtering Confusion

    Home Audio Speakers
    I was lead to this site for the first time less than an hour ago (following a download lead). It said I was free to download what ever I want for free (money wise), but the fee was to do some posting at this site. No problem. I like free ! So here goes. I started a thread at another forum...
  20. Sub testing results confusion...

    SVSound
    Hi guys, As I learn more about acoustics, my complete ignorance is beginning to wane somewhat (now I understand the axiom "Ignorance is Bliss"). There are two main areas of confusion (currently), and I am really hoping that some of the "subhumans" here :hail: can point out where I am all wet...
