  1. The Epic Home Theater Photo Critique Thread

    AV Home Theater
    After years of running the Facebook feed, I've gathered hundreds of home theater photos...I've kept a lot of them. I thought it would be fun to start posting them here – one at a time – to start a running critique thread. I wish I had gear notes on them... I don't... so hopefully some of you...
  2. Need a room critique please

    REW Forum
    This is my first time measuring. I used a UMM-6 USB mic, and did (4) 512k freq sweeps. I recently added some new corner bass traps and wanted to test the difference. You can see two tests in the graph. I'm actually appalled at the results. I really don't think my room sounds all that bad. And...
  3. Critique my Treatment Plan

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Since I've upgraded my speakers I might as well do something with two boxes of 2" OC703 sitting in the garage for the past few years. What's the point of good speakers in a bad room, right? So here is the layout: 13'5" W x 22'1" L x 8' H home theater 10" high x 20" wide soffit around the...
  4. Critique a Mach5 IXL Sono design ? Some questions

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I'm playing around with Sonosub.exe and winISD and have come up with some measurements. A few questions: First: The area after(lower) the tune frequency, should I put much thought into this ? I was under the impression that below the tune frequency, distortion rises quickly. So for example...
  5. Model critique: 14Hz tuned 5.7cuft Fi Q15

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hey guys, Looking to build (actually get a sub built) to fill a ~8000 cuft room. I was originally looking to build a sealed 18" (thanks Musikpirate for helping with the design) but after much weighing of my skillset and available time I'm gonna outsource this one. After reading the LLT basics...
  6. Critique my 10" Titanic MkIII design

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Greetings from one of the many new faces here. I have a modest HT setup in my living room, and as usual I'm looking to do some upgrades. 1st on my list is a powered sub. I've built auto subs in the past, as well as some full range stereo setups, but never a dedicated sub for HT/Music. Due to...
  7. Critique my work??

    DIY Speakers
    I have been replacing dead dry rotted/ damaged surrounds for years. Up until now I have boughten new surrounds for the replacement. Well a few months ago I found a rather nice pair of speakers in the dumpster to my apartment complex. They were obviously trashed because of complete surround...
  8. Critique my idea for a new sub I'm thinking of building.

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    OK, so this is a new idea as far as I can tell, but I'd love to get the low down from you guys and see what you think. My idea is to build 2 subs, using 6 drivers, that will effectively be 4 subs built into 2 cabinets. I love the sound of my push pull, and it seems that when 2 drivers are put...
  9. New System Critique Needed

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    I'm going to be building a new house and I'm going to be adding a theater room. I'd like to get some thoughts on some choices I've made after reading some of the posts in various sections of the forum. I've got very little legacy equipment or movies so there's not a lot of need to worry about...

  11. Please Critique this Design

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I have about 2 months now before I can build but I want to get everything nailed down in the design before making a single cut. I was looking at the Shiva but now thinking Tempest. This will be a sonotube design with a 16" tube. Total Height is 58" Distance between sub and base is 3½" Distance...
  12. Critique this AV15-X build

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hi everyone, I'm gearing up to build a ported AV15-X design. I'm constrained by WAF and also don't want a box that is too big that it takes over the room. I'm mostly interested in Home Theater application, but it should also do music. So probably 80 HT, 20 Music. I understand the sub will...
  13. Please critique my graph

    REW Forum
    Okay I finally got my subs in decent locations and would like a critique of my flat response also I am looking for advice of where I may begin equalizing. I plan to use brucek's house curve recommendation once i get these results flat enough. The graphs below are of both subs performing...

  15. First time graph - please critique!

    REW Forum
    Ok, been messing around with REW and the new analog RS SPL meter for a few days now. I have a SVS dual 12" sub, and in front of it the Velodyne SMS-1 processor. I let the Velodyne SMS-1 do its thing, and then set up REW to check out a graph. I'm currently using a 24-bit Live SB USB sound card...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi, i just picked up a 12" lms-4000 driver and i've been doing some modeling with winisd to try to find the "best" possible enclosure. My goal is to get clean and accurate sound down to about 20 Hz (maybe a little lower). spl isn't an important factor for me as i've got a new baby in the house...
  17. Critique my sub plans

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    The goals for my project are not too aggressive: 100 db @ 20hz and accurate relatively flat in-room response < 500 watts from the wall small footprint inexpensive room to grow I don't get to listen loud very often (many small children in my house :). So I don't need high spl. But I do like...
