  1. Home Audio Subwoofers
    I’m looking for a sub that has left and right RCA in and out, and further that acts as an active crossover (thus not sending the bass that the subwoofer is handling to the main speaker amps). The reason for this is that I have a great stereo pre-amp with only one pair left and right RCA...

    Hi All. I've been messing with REW for a number of years now and consider myself a casual user. After years of wishing I could do room treatments, I finally am doing it. I just finished bass traps and wanted to catch a "before" graph before I install the bass traps and came up with this...
  3. Home Audio Speakers
    How can or should I say can a brand of speakers like Def Tech's BP series which seem to have the same cabinet build and driver size, for that line 8020,40,60,80 have a different or louder sound take away the subwoofer? Even for the more entry level BP? I am basically asking if the mid/woofers...

    Hello, I began with REW this week. Please can you help me to understand why REW does not give me the same curve than Antimode . I measured my sub with both (put the mic at the same place of course) Why Antimode curve is relativly horizontal but not REW's? Is the difference important or not...

  7. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Despite being able to go ultra-low at relatively loud levels, the Definitive Technology Trinity Subwoofer is also a "fast" subwoofer. In the old days, subs like the Velodyne ULD-18 could go really low, but couldn't keep up with the speed of the most demanding soundtracks. Now, with DTS Master...

    Hi all I've RTM and had a look through a few posts but I'm still confused as to what the "Window (ms)" parameter in the Controls section of the Waterfall graph does. I just don't get it! I wondered if anyone could explain it to me or link me to a thorough explanation? Cheers Max

    I use a PC to measure frequency response, timing, etc... People have always told me that I need to gate my measurements. Nobody has ever taken the time to explain gating to me in terms I can understand. Can someone put this into laymans terms? Ge0

    It listed as Frequency Response Sampling Frequency 44.1 kHz, CD 4Hz-20kHz 48 kHz, DVD Video 4Hz-20kHz 96 kHz, DVD Video 4Hz-44kHz 192 kHz, DVD Video 4Hz-88kHz Singal to noise ratio, IHF "A" weighted...
  11. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I was reading that movie soundtracks are mixed to play at 75dB with up to 40dB added to the LFE channel. That is a potential for 115dB, total. The model for a sub I am building says it produces 109dB with a Dayton 240W amp. It would take 1000W to produce a 115dB signal in this setup. Seems...
  12. Home Theater Design and Construction
    I'm a new guy with minimal experience in "home theatre" types of spaces (though I have done professional recording studio stuff for years), and I have a question about a home we're considering buying. Specifically, one of the main spaces, what I would typically call a family room, seems to have...

    In the rough diagram, just to show what i am actually measuring: do i take the distance from the speaker to the wall,then add that to distance back to mic, to calculate reflection point, or do i just, measure the distance the mic is from the wall and calculate that, e.g speaker from mic 4 feet...

    From what I have read, they seem to be different shades of colors. Is that correct? If anyone feels like it, please explain.:huh:
  15. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi guys, I am new here and have already learned a lot. :hail: Can someone explain tuning - Why choose 12Hz over 20Hz? I am talking about a LLT or sonotube. I am sure some depends on the driver used, but I see where members have used a Splinter Sound RL-p18 with boxes tuned from 11 to 23 Hz...
