  2. Help With Interpreting Graphs and Next Steps

    REW Forum
    Hello, I was wondering if someone could help me with what I should be thinking about next. I have 5 filters on my preamp that I can use per channel which I use mostly on the low end. I'm trying to have the low end 8-10 dbs higher than the frequncies after 100hz, but I can't really pull that off...

  4. All my graphs are now showing a 60 dB suckout at 9,590 Hz

    REW Forum
    This just started about a week ago and I can't figure out why. It doesn't matter which speaker or mic I'm using, or their relative placement. I use a Behringer Xenyx502 for a mic preamp and then go into my HP desktop line in. I don't send the mic input to the speakers so that's not an issue. Any...

  7. Using ETC Graphs

    REW Forum
    Hi! I've used REW to make some measurements of my small mixing room. It hasn't yet got any treatment. I am doing this as part of a project for university. I am now analysing my results by following this guide...
  8. REW - reading results

    REW Forum
    Hello, after many hardships and the multitude of questions raised in various forums I've just made the first measurements. Unfortunately, still I'm far from the first attempts to adapt, because it's found out that I totally can not interpret the results (graphs). I don't understand them...

  13. strange soundcard calibration graphs

    REW Forum
    I have my soundcard's output looped back into its input, and I ran a calibration. The results are very strange. Here's the 'SPL and Phase' graph: And here's part of the 'Scope' graph: Can anyone make any sense of this? It looks like the output and the left and right inputs are all running...
  14. Why would treating my room make the frequency response worse?? [graphs]

    REW Forum
    Hey, I recently came into a LOT of OC703, and so I used it to treat my room pretty completely. But the problem is that after comparing my before/after tests, it looks like the frequency response got worse! Though things like the RT60 and Decay look better. Why might this be? Here are the...
  15. First Graphs - Will a PEQ Help me here?

    REW Forum
    So I think I am getting a handle on taking measurements in REW and I thought I'd give it a shot in the real world. I set my living room 5.1 system up completely manually (tape measure for distances, SPL meter to set all levels at 85 dB, speakers set to Small with crossovers at 80 Hz, Subs (now...

    REW Forum
    This is my first REW test, and I am testing it in my Living Room with 5.1 setup (no treatment at all) to at least understand the basics of REW measurements (hopefully) before my actual home theater is finished (expecting within a month), so i did couple of tests, and I want to see your opinions...

    Hi, so I'm very new to this. I have my PC going into a Denon X4000 AVR via optical toslink. I have two main speakers (B&W 602s3) and a sub (SVS SB-2000). I am using a Umik-1 with the calibration file as the mic. The results are in the overlay graph. Two things immediately spring to mind...
  19. BIG Differences in Sub Placement... I doubt I even need EQ now

    REW Forum
    It's amazing the differences a sub crawl can make. I recently built a sonosub, and it sounded 'off' where it was, I left it for awhile, assuming I was just nuts. Today I went 'nuts' and rearranged my entire home theater to find out the best place to stick the monster... Here's what I found...
