  1. Rel high level pass sub integration

    REW Forum
    I've been playing with REW for a while. I have a pair of speakers and rel strata sub, also a dac and integrated amp. I can only use the high level pass filter with the sub. All the forums seem to talk only about integration of subs with amps that have lpf filters. That isn't practical for me or...
  2. subwoofer integration question

    REW Forum
    I'm using REW to help integrate a subwoofer with main stereo speakers by equalizing their levels. Note that the pre-amp does not have test tones, so REW is what I'm using to generate pink noise from my laptop using a 3.5mm to dual RCA plugs (and then into the pre-amp). I'm using a Radio Shack...
  3. Four SVS Sub Integration

    REW Forum
    Well, I finally finished my systems EQ and managed to integrate all four SVS subs using REW (2xPB12NSD & 2xSB2000) and the subs to my satellite speakers using REW and Audyssey XT32. I thought that posting my final results and approach might be interesting to some readers. I could only get the...

  7. sub integration: 2-chan vs LFE

    Audio Processing
    I've been using REW to integrate my sub with the mains. In my Marantz AVR I set the sub level trim to 0db, mains to small, and crossover at 80hz (although mains will play down to 40hz). I then used REW along with room treatments and sub gain/PEQ to create a great curve and phase align the sub...
  8. Another Newbie question: RS SPL meter enough for sub integration or do I need Behringer ECM8000?

    REW Forum
    Hi, Audyssey seems to set my sub (JTR Cap S2) 6-10 dbs lower than the rest of the speakers (JTR Quintuple LCRs, Def Tech BPVX surrounds, Def Tech SM 450 Front Heights). Over the weekend I am planning to use REW to analyze and manually level match them (and also try pre-setting the sub to 75 db...

  11. iPhone integration

    Mobile Audio
    I need to get a radio for my car and would like to get one that syncs to an iPhone well. My main uses are steaming internet radio but not just Pandora. A reliable Bluetooth integration with an external mic is also important to me. Double or single din would work for my car. It seems that...

  14. Surveillance Integration - Need Help

    System Setup and Connection
    This might be a little different kind of "help" than one would normally find on this forum. Long story short, I'm the founder of a home A/V distribution company (and a sponsor here), and we are looking to expand into the Security/Surveillance market but need some advice and help from folks...

    We'll probably be able to add some new content partners to the Boxee list shortly, now that the media streaming company is teaming with Sonic Solutions. Best known as the company behind the online movie stores for Best Buy and Blockbuster, that predictably means Boxee users should be able to...
  16. Line Driver/Preamplifier for Laptop Integration

    AV Home Theater
    I need to drive the output on my laptop for both my EP1500 and my plate amplifier (subwoofer). Right now I have the rca's split which is pretty suboptimal in terms of input voltage on the two amps. I am thinking about buying one of these Gemini PA-7000 Preamplifier As I understand it, it...

    REW Forum
    Upon occasion of removing most of the Auralex bass blockers from listening/family/guest/kid room today leaving one in each of the top 4 corners (too hardcore of a look for a multipurpose room:heehee:) and nothing else, I proceeded to rerun REW. Before today, I was experimenting with 2 full...
