    As of 4-30-18 at 5pm, I'll be a homeowner! And I have an unfinished basement to play with. The best part is, my bride is fully on board with me creating an "entertainment space" for hangouts, sports game get-togethers, etc. But for now, I'll admit it - I'm kind of lost and overwhelmed. I'm...

  9. REW Forum
    I have completed my first REW tests. It looks to me that my major problems are the 2 nulls at 90 and 500 (with maybe a whole other bunch of problems) and the bass ringing <80 on the waterfall chart. I could be COMPLETELY off, so any feedback is welcomed. Any ideas? I know my gear is not that...

  12. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi Guys - Long time lurker here. I've been slowly building out my home theater and I think this year I want to take on some built in subs. There are many days were I wish this room was just a big empty box instead of being finished with all the built in space, but alas it is what I have to...
  13. Home Audio Acoustics
    I have a 16'x26' room. Using AT screen. Going with 7.2 set up. One sub will initially be placed behind the screen slightly off center and the other in the rear of the room (not in the corner) about 8' off of rear wall and 2' off of wall. (next to front row of seats). So, that's the set up so far...
  14. DIY Screens
    I've settled on an AT screen. I'd prefer to have my screen size around 135"-138" diagonal and have thought about just buying the Jamestown 140" AT screen and just masking off to the size I want as I think the 130" would be just a tad small for my liking. however the JT AT screen is 575 using...

  16. DIY Speakers
    I built two towers, each using four 5-1/4" mids and 8 tweeters. Here are the tweeters http://www.parts-express.com/goldwood-gt-302-1-2-mylar-dome-tweeter--270-170 Maybe my thinking is off...?? They are supposed to handle 30 watts each, so 8 in each tower should handle 240 watts. Add that to...
  17. REW Forum
    Hi, I have another post where I went into much more detail. I have deconstructed my room somewhat; taken down some bass traps, but my problem doesn't go away unless I point the measurement mic to the ports of my JBL 4410As; then the response is fairly even from 45hz to 10khz. However, as it...
