  1. REW Headroom Bad But Input Good

    REW Forum
    During a sine sweep measurement the headroom readout sometimes turns red. Later found out that means input clipping, so any such measurement results are bad. But what I don't understand is how can that happen if the Check Levels and the Calibrate SPL were properly performed. Does it mean I...
  2. How can I estimate system headroom with REW

    REW Forum
    Forgive me if this has been addressed somewhere else in the forum (and feel free to point me in the right direction). I am trying to find a good way to measure the headroom of my speakers. Or, in other words, what's a good way to determine the real driving limits of a speaker given my entire...
  3. Check levels versus headroom

    REW Forum
    Hello everyone, I'm new to REW and these forums. I have read a few guides on this forum on the topics of for instance what hardware to use for REW and about the hard knee house curve. There is one issue that I'm having that I have not seen mentioned in other threads so that's why I'm making...

  5. measurement headroom question

    REW Forum
    I got the "highest level in the measurement is...for greater accuracy..." message. I tried increasing the volume on the preamp and sweep level, but that increased the overall volume above 75 dB. Should I just recalibrate at that higher level and begin measuring or should I figure out how to...

  8. How much headroom is needed?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    If the amount of headroom is a direct indication on how much one may be able to cut or boost a frequency, is the general idea still do not boost more than 3dB no matter how much there is available? Is this small amount because of room modes? How much headroom might be needed to boost 6.5dB or...
  9. What is Headroom?

    AV Home Theater
    This may be a stupid question that I should certainly have a firm grasp on by now - but heh, I've gotta reach my 10 post quota somehow, and I really have been confused here. What is headroom, in reference with a sub? And rather, why is it important? I think I'm confusing myself the more...
  10. "Crank it up" - Cheap AVR's vs Headroom

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Help me out here guys or did I whimp out? I'm extremely pleased with the clean sound of a recently purchased SVS 5.1 system (SBS-01/SCS-01/20-39 PCi) and so are my friends. I was asked to crank it up over my preferred listening SPL (80dB avg. - 90dB peak) and received boo's for declining...
  11. Headroom question using REW

    REW Forum
    I am confused on this and I hope someone can help me. I have dual HSU HO subs and I have used REW and the 1124p to flatten out my response. If I run REW with only one sub playing at a time, REW says that I have -10db of headroom, no matter which sub I play. When I have them both going, REW...
  12. Adding another SVS for headroom...?

    SVSound
    Hi all, I am thinking about adding another sub for the additional headroom, and I am considering adding a PB12+ (especially since they are clearing out the piano black finishes!). I am currently running dual 20-30 PC+ cylinders, and my understanding is that the PB12+ is the box equivilent...
