  1. General Home Theater questions

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    hello all, I apologize in advance... this is another one of those "what system should I get" threads. I've read a bit here and a few other places, but am really a noob when it comes to these things. Well, I guess that is not entirely accurate, been around HT for some time... hooked some up...
  2. Help with interpreting REW graphs and general understanding of audio characteristics

    REW Forum
    Hi all, I'm new to all this, so please bear with me. (Have attached 2 x REW settings files for your reference.) I got a Mac with REW, Behringer ECM8000 and an Apogee One audio interface. I have done a measurement at my home studio and I did one for a restaurant where I recently did a sound...
  3. General questions/suggestions for future home

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    Hi folks, Brand new here, and want to apologize if most of this has already been answered in various threads. I did some high level searches to get most of my answers but it's a bit convoluted. Looking to build our new house in the next year or so. Starting to get a grip on what this is going...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hello! I was reading a thread which touched base on Dolby ATMOS. That raised a few questions in my mind, so instead of hijacking that thread, I did a search on our forums but could only find ATMOS discussions about specific issues and problems. So I decided to start a thread for those of...

  6. General subwoofer thread.

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    General subwoofer thread; setup, choices, et cetera. There are many subwoofer threads but I don't see any threads where subwoofers can be discussed in general: not manufacture specific. The purpose of this thread is so anybody can come in and discuss their situation, irregardless of the...
  7. General question: Is it okay to set target level low?

    REW Forum
    In cases where dips are around 10-12db, is is acceptable to set target level low purposely? It seems easier to drop frequencies and extend Q rather than work with a +3db maximum gain. (pre-amp only has gain range of -12db to +3db, which is why I would drop my target level) Is it more...

  12. General discussion thread

    SVSound
    I thought it would be cool to start a thread that anyone could talk about anything SVS in. I lurk on these forums every single day, but SVS is the forum that I really care the most about. I don't know why, but I just can't get SVS off of my mind. I am listening to my SVS setup right now, and...
