  1. Trust Audyssey on Sub distance?

    REW Forum
    Trust Audyssey on Sub distance? The more I read about the Audyssey, about Subwoofer time align. The more confused I became. - Audyssey says. We should leave Phase and Polarity at 0. - Other says (a) you are only aligning the timing for a limited ( I repeat LIMITED) frequency range, (b) you...
  2. subwoofer distance using Audyssey

    Audio Processing
    I am currently auditioning a pair of SVS PB1000 subwoofers and have done the speaker calibration with my Denon 4311ci. This unit has the Audyssey MultiEQ XT32 which will calibrate each sub independently. After completion of the setup I find that the distances for the subs are reported at 14 feet...
  3. Measure speaker distance and polarity

    REW Forum
    While doing custom audio setups, there are two measurements I often would like to do: Speaker distance measurement and speaker/driver polarity. Is this something REW supports in any way? Can I propose them as a feature if they don't? I know REW supports measuring the speaker distance in a...
  4. Laser Distance Meter

    AV Home Theater
    Been thinking about picking up a laser distance meter for use in setting speakers and getting distances to speakers a little easier than trying to stretch out a tape measure by myself. Of course I have already thought of several other uses for it other than audio, but that is what got my buying...

  10. Is it possible to measure subwoofer distance?

    REW Forum
    I always thought the wavelengths for say under 80Hz were to large to measure in order to determine the distance for a subwoofer using REW or most any other program. Can the REW distance measurements be used to time/phase align subwoofers?
  11. MCACC mis-setting sub distance?

    System Setup and Connection
    When I run the speaker distance program on MCACC it always calculates my subs as being farther away than the are. It correctly sets my 7 channels... Just not the sub. Right now my sub is roughly 10 ft 11 in away from the microphone and the system is saying it's 14 ft 2". What gives, here...

  18. Speaker distance measurements.

    REW Forum
    Hi guys..... The first thing I want to do with REW is complete a full and accurate speaker distance measurement for each speaker and the sub. Now I understand how one does this within REW. Loop backs etc. But my query is in regards to what best I have my processor set to interms of speaker...
