    Ok, I just received 8 2'x4' x 1-1/2" thick CertainTeed Acoustaboard Black series 300 (3 lb/cu. ft density) panels yesterday from FedEx and did some initial setup and listening last night. I didn't do any baseline measurements prior or post setup yet, so this is purely subjective listening and...

  3. REW Forum
    I have read the help files for REW setup and am confused about which method to use for sound card compensation. I currently have the loopback setup in place (right channel meter input--left channel looped, etc.). The following quote from the help file suggests that everything is accounted for...

    How do we set the initial recommended 75dB level of the AVR when using the REW?I understand that we should have the SPL meter RS or CM-140 to measure the 75dB but is this on a certain frequency initially say at 4khz just like the Rives Audio manual test CD recommended?or the REW gives a initial...

    I've installed everything and am running the initial loopback calibration file in REW. I connected a 3.5 to stereo adaptor to the line input and speaker output on the back of the SB live external SC (there is no mention of line out on the back of the SB so I assume you just use the main speaker...

    Hello, I have a Panasonic PT-53TW53 53 in. Rear Projection HDTV. Recently, the TV would not power on and flashed the service code indicating a problem with the convergence circuit. After much research on the net (mainly the great thread here by lcaillo - Thx!) I decided to tackle the repair...

    I've had my dual RL-P15 IB up and running for a couple of months now. Although I haven't had a chance to run REW yet, (as I don't have the time, knowledge, or equipment right now) it sounds pretty good. Only problem is, it doesn't quite "feel" like I would have expected. Our house is tile...

  11. Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hello all. Long-time lurker, first time poster. So this weekend I sat down with my Ratshack Digital SPL, RoomEQ and my BFD that's been gathering dust on a shelf since I picked it up on eBay 2 years ago. Long story short, my laptop seems to hate RoomEQ, so I fell back on the "subtest" XLS and...

    Initial Impressions of the SVS PB13-Ultra compared to the (TV-12) PC-Ultra By Jon Liu I haven’t had a whole lot of time to tinker with it, since I got home kind of late and have to get up early tomorrow. But here’s what I observe from what little time I’ve been able to have with this sub so...

    I recently bought a Sony KDS-55A200 55" SXRD 1080p and the Play Station 3 for a Bluray player. I had to do some setup for my system so as much as it pained me, I had both of these sitting in my second living room for the past three days without being able to play with them. I finally got my...

    Sorry not using the REW software yet but planning too, so here is a initial result using the available excel version: I have some issues as you can see. This is only eq'ing my front sub which is in cabinetry (I'll get a photo up soon on that). The cabinet is eating up a lot of the sound so...
