  1. Question regarding Wayne's article: House curve: What it is, why you need it, how to do it!

    REW Forum
    Hi Friends! I have a question regarding Wayne's article: "House curve: What it is, why you need it, how to do it!" If I understood the idea behind it, there is a difference between the "perceived flat response as opposed to measured flat response." So if I choose some house curve and I need...
  2. Subwoofer Level w/House Curve

    REW Forum
    The house curve makes the volume level high in relationship to the crossover point. For instance, crossover at 60hz, using REW "Use Subwoofer to Check/Set Levels" to set sub level at 75dB...The SPL at 60hz ends up at 66dB... With 24dB/oct, would I set the sub level using a 60hz tone only, and...

    Hi I am currently using REW V5.14. My measurement setup includes a 4189 B&K microphone and its preamplifier, and an Antelope Pure 2 external soundcard.

  7. House curve question

    REW Forum
    I am not sure if this is the right place for this, but figured with REW measuring, this might be the right forum. In trying to establish a "hard knee" house curve for my subs, I performed an RTA at 60Hz (my crossover) and then at 30Hz, 28Hz, and even 100Hz. When measured without equalization...

  11. Target curve filter fine tuning advice

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Hello everyone. I've been getting the hang of REW and would like to get some critiques regarding my before and after EQ curves. My concern is the very narrow (0.200 BW OCT) 9db gain at 55hz to treat that null. Is that okay? I also have a very narrow and deep null at 270 hz, could this be an...
  12. EQ target settings rise start/end vs house curve?

    REW Forum
    Years ago when I last used REW I used a simple house curve: 20 Hz 8.0, 80 Hz 0.0. I see at some point it looks like new options were added in the target curve. Specifically LR rise/start/end. Can this be used in place of a house curve? Do they do similar things? If so when's it appropriate to...
  13. Warning: More than x% of values are above target curve

    REW Forum
    When working in the EQ window and creating filters I am often getting a warning from REW - something like "Warning: More than 77% of the measured values are above the target curve". What's confusing me is that REW is recommending that when I tell it to match response to target. So if that is a...
