    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Just found this very well laid out page on boundary effect, phase cancellation and speaker placement. http://arqen.com/acoustics-101/speaker-placement-boundary-interference/ I have always been a strong advocate of room treatment and speaker placement as the most effective methods of addressing...

    REW Forum
    Hi I had considerable success in time and phase aligning in REW, particularly in aligning wrapped and unwrapped phase at the crossover points. What is really interesting is the taking of measurements at three distances - 1 meter, 2 meters and 3 meters from the speakers and evaluating the...
  5. Possible to check effect of Acourate filter with REW?

    Hello, I am using REW v5.01 Beta 20 in windows 8.1. I use Acourate to generate FIR filters that are then used in the JRiver convolver. Is it possible to measure the room response already corrected by the Acourate filter? I would like to measure it (keeping mic, etc, fixed) so I can compare...

    I am in the process of making some changes to my system. I recently bought a new Panasonic zt65 Plasma to replace my old Sony rear projection TV, but with that I am now repainting the room and possibly having a console built to put in front of the TV that will be mounted on the wall. I am...

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Okay it's been quite some time since I've had a look at any potential improvements to my home cinema.

  9. BFD has NO effect on Frequency response graph

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hello. I am very new to this whole equalization thing. However I recently purchased a BFD and have used REW to come up with equalization settings which I have input to the BFD. I have just now done a measurement with BFD and a measurement in bypass they are literally identical.
  10. IB Setup: Can you effect dead spots with stuffing (Foam)?

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Hello all- I recently finished my IB setup in my house (6 18'' FICAR). Although I'm still working through some issues, the sound is amazing--except for one issue. My sitting locating seems to be the one place where I can notice a drop in SPL (db). No, I have not tested with meters or used REW...

    I'm in the final stage of my dedicated HT build - it's roughly a 21'x16' room. I currently have Linacoustic floor to ceiling everywhere except for on the walls to the side of the 2nd-row, where there's Dacron batting above the chair rail. There's also a couple superchunk bass traps in the rear...
  14. Acoustic effect of placing speakers against wall or on shelves?

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I've read that stand-mounted monitor speakers (many of which are called, ironically, bookshelf speakers) should be mounted some distance away from the back wall when used as L & R speakers. I've also read that there should be some space between them and the side walls as well. What is the...
