  3. Got REW installed OK

    REW Forum
    Well I got Java 7 & REW version 5.0 installed this morning on my old computer and it seems to come up OK. :sweat: I guess I need to try a sound card calibration and see what happens. I have an M-Audio sound card and it has regular RCA Phono jacks for “line in” & “line out” and it also has a...

  5. I've installed bass traps but not sure what to do now.

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Hi there, I've recently treated my room with broad band bass traps and there has been a significant difference in the before and after measurements. However, I'm not sure what to do to make further improvements. I have a gradual null at 55hz that slopes down 10 db to 90Hz and back up 10-15db at...

    Home Theater Projectors
    I realised I hadn't posted on here, but I received my new JVC X35 on Saturday. I went for a white one as the projector is installed at the back of my living room and I think it looks more discrete. I had seen a demo of the X55 but it was nearly twice the price in the UK, plus I already have a...
  7. hlm 507w lamp not working after replacement installed.

    I have a 50" DLP my wife said before the TV went out there was a flash of red and she heard a pop, and the picture was gone. So I replaced the lamp, but I still don't have a picture. The only trouble shooting steps I have done is remove the back and make sure every thing I touched was still...

  10. got my treatments installed

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Last week I started working on them I used the Owens Corning 703 product, 4 inch think on the widows and 6 inch thick for the corner traps. That stuff cut perfectly with the table saw. It definitely sounds better the bass is very tight and over all much cleaner. For music one thing I noticed...

  13. Newly installed Auralex Sonosuede working great!

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Hey, just thought I would check in to post a comment about my newly installed 12 piece Sonosuede panels. What a difference it made in the imaging of my room. A much more welcoming space, with the sound I rarely get from a bigger theater. I was apprehensive at first given my "budget" Athena...
