  1. HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    This is going to be a bit of a long post, but only because I've got a year and a half of troubleshooting the problem under my belt. Hence offering the reward for anyone that can post a solution that fixes it. I'm going slightly insane trying to figure this out, and probably never going to bother...
  2. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am posting this for a friend of mine. I built a Martycube and LOVE it. He saw my sub and wanted me thoughts on a DIY build for his setup for the basement area which is fairly large (600 sq feet open to another 250 on one side). His budget is between 500-700, with parts purchased over time...
  3. System Setup and Connection
    Hello Folks, Well I won the Axiom M100s:woohoo: Now the wife is asking for me to move the M22is I have on stands down to the living room and hook them up to the TV. TV is a Panasonic plasma with the Digital optical output jack (so much fun) Current setup (which I personally think is fine) is...

  5. DIY Repair and Maintenance
    Hi, my first post here, woohoo. I saved a small tuner from the recycler (Panasonc ST-CH9). Its just a bookshelf tuner, with a ribbon cable going to the missing amp. Ribbon cable has 8 wires. I am trying to figure out which pair might work as a line-out into my computer. What voltages/ohms...
  6. Home Audio Speakers
    I'm wondering if anyone out there has paired up the very well reviewed Pioneer speakers (SP-BS21-LR, SP-BS22-LR, SP-FS51, or SP-FS52) with a half height Marantz 50W receiver (NR1403, NR1404, NR1504, NR1603, NR1604, etc.). If you have this combination, do you find that your receiver is able to...
  7. System Setup and Connection
    I’m going kinda bananas trying to figure this all out. Not getting a whole lot of bass coming out of my new sub. My thinking is that my speakers have too high of a “low” frequency crossover (160hz is the lowest) and my Sub crossover is (140hz max). I know I have a relatively cheap/low cost...
  8. REW Forum
    I do not recall REW having ever done this before to me but basically regardless of what I do for adjustments, at the apex of the house curve target the response below that freq (for example 30 hz being the apex) zero adjustment is applied for correction. I believe I have investigated every...
  9. REW Forum
    The basics: I'm using an HTPC with VT1708B audio, connected through an Onkyo SR608 receiver. Polk R30 centers, R15 surrounds, and CS2 center. I'm in the process of rebuilding my sub, so I have no sub at the moment. I'm using the Audyssey mic that came with the receiver. So here's the first...
  10. REW Forum
    hello I have my dual subs located in front along the line of my left and right mains- phase is set to zero. When I run the automated calibration for my processor (Emotiva UMC-1) it sets the subwoofer distance at 25ft instead of the 10ft that it is and I do get a smoother response too in REQ. I...
  11. SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hi folks, many many years ago I was a happy owner of an analog Radio Shack SPL meter. I'm getting back in the hobby, but my old meter has since been discontinued, and even the used market dried up. The new RS stuff does not seem to get as much praise as the older stuff, so I've decided to get a...
  12. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    not even sure what this means? im tryn to figure out the driver volume for a Dayton RSS390HF-4 15"
  13. REW Forum
    OK, so I know from reading the forums that the Radio Shack meters are not the best for calibration but I'm more or less using this program to try and plot sub woofer response. My question is about calibrating the dB level. When I attach my meter to the computer and set it to the 80 dB range the...
  14. DIY Repair and Maintenance
    I have an NHT crossover that seems to be stuck at one frequency all the adjustments seems whack, Is there an easy way to find the defective component with a multimeter?
  15. REW Forum
    I have been posting on AVSforums about how I made a jump from a Velodyne DLS3750 to a new SVS PC12+. I had great room gain and integration with my Velodyne. With this new PC12 plus, I have been reall dissapointed. This is my first measurement and graph with REW, so let me know if there is...
  16. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I posted over at AVS but think this may be a better place. I currently have a MFW-15 but want to try my hand at DIY. I'm decent at wood working although I don't have all the needed tools. I consider myself well above average in painting or staining wood. I would like to make a sealed sub...
  17. New Member Introductions
    I just moved to a new place which is surround sound wired, however none of the wires are marked whether they are FL or FR or RL or RR. I would appreciate if you know a way I can figure it out, I am a non-techie so detailed way to figure out would be much appreciated. Also Front Right means...
  18. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I keep looking at different HT receivers and they have separate rms ratings for 20hz to 1khz and then a higher rating for 1khz-20khz. Subwoofers would fall into the first range. I am assuming then that at those frequencies the amplifier would put out less power? and then therefore something like...
  19. DIY Screens
    So after much research through many of the helpful threads here, I decided to go with Wilsonart Designer White Laminate. I am going with a 110" diag screen. I want a simple mounting system and framing system. I am leaning towards putting it up right on the wall, rather than building a frame...
  20. CD-BD-DVD Music | Vinyl Records
    .. in the commercial for a new show on CBS called "The Class". It's something like "Friends" or has friends in the title somewhere. It's totally familiar, but can't seem to remember what it is or, more importanatly, who sings it. Anybody have an idea? TKoP
