  1. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I currently have a 12 cubic foot vented enclosure and now I am switching to two 4.5 cubic foot vented end table subs on each side of the couch. While modeling in Winisd, I am showing the same output and response curve (within one db)if I add an 8db boost at 20hz to the smaller box. I tweaked...
  2. AV Home Theater
    I'm working on a friend's home theater and am really struggling to figure out an optimal placement for the sub(s). Attached is a rough SketchUp of the room, the difficult part from what I've read is that the front of the room is the tallest wall. This can't be changed unfortunately due to doors...

  4. New Member Introductions
    I have been a Dj for a while now, and over the years have gradually upgraded my system to now be limited by the rooms I play in. Over the last year I have settled at one location and virtually installed my system in the club. I now run sound for live bands and want to continue my learning but I...
  5. SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Im completely new to measuring speakers. I wanted to measure the impedance of a speaker such that I could determine the TS parameters but the obtained results so far are not correct. To measure the impedance I have build the very simple jig with just a single 100ohm resistor. To make sure that...
  6. Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    Last week we highlighted pricing and availability of LG’s 2016 line of OLED televisions (note: LG prices have dropped since the article went live), clearly a manufacturer that’s opted to embrace a pure-quality mantra. This isn’t to say that other companies aren’t cognizant of quality, but...
  7. System Setup and Connection
    Say it isn't so! The larger your screen size, the more of an issue center channel location becomes?! What I mean is this; I heard - maybe on this forum, maybe somewhere else - placing your center channel below or above a screen that is much larger than a typical TV will cause a situation during...
  8. Home Audio Acoustics
    So, I have a large null in my theater room. I spent all weekend doing the sub crawl with an SPL meter and got both my sub's in the bester location. What else can I do? I ordered a umik1 and it is on the way. I have no room room treatment as of yet. I will post measurement when it arrives...is...
  9. Home Audio Subwoofers
    After the setup of some new gear, it’s time to add the sub(s) and I was hoping to get some thoughts here. Being in Thailand, selections are limited but what is available isn’t so far off US prices. There are no in-home auditioning, no exchanges and warrantees are limited to 1 year, so I need...
  10. Home Audio Acoustics
    Hello gentlemen I have a problem with a large dip around 200hz that i would like to get rid off. The only method i have found working is to take all 5 auto EQ measurements with my anthem arc in the same position but unfortunatly it totally ruins the frequenzy respons for the side chairs (see...
  11. Home Audio Acoustics
    Hello, I started this conversation on the REW forums and was advised to take this conversation to the acoustics forum. We just moved into a new townhome (which we're renting, so no renovations are doable), and I'm left with the concrete basement to turn into my mixing control room. On the plus...
  12. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am modelling two setups..... two LMSR 15's vs two Ultimax 18's in a 500 liter (17.5 cubic feet) box tuned to 15hz. I get a slot port length of 4 by 24 inches wide for 56 inches long. At 1000 watts both of them seem fine for excursion, and port velocity is 17 which seems decent. The...
  13. Home Audio Acoustics
    I've got a somewhat large living room I'm trying to improve the acoustics in. The room is almost 21 feet wide, and 15 feet long. The floor is carpet and the drywall ceiling is 8 feet above the listening position, sloping up to 9'-6" in the front, above the mains. I've played with a few sub...
  14. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hey guys, So I thought I would try my hand at something discreet. Now I have done something a little different in my theory which is rather than a table which I need to plug in my am is to make it 100% wireless! So The way I am going to do this is using a leisure motorhome/caravan battery and...
  15. System Setup and Connection
    First post. Hello all I have a 32x24 room dedicated to two channel. I have installed a 100" screen and projector. My question is if I'm setting 12 to 14' from my screen, does the type of my speakers matter. I guess what I'm saying is I'm kind of sitting in a 14' deep by 24' wide area for the...
  16. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    So I figured I might as well start a thread for a ported cabinet build that I'm in the process for building. So a little background, I have a dedicated home theater room down in the basement that's roughly 19.5ft long, 14ft wide in the front where I have a front stage with a AT screen and...
  17. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I'm re-running Audyssey XT32 on this Denon AVR-X4000 and Audyssey insists on setting the fronts to "large". This seems contrary to all I have read. I set all speakers to "small" in the manual setup, currently doing soft reset of the receiver. What's going on here? Thanks in advance.
  18. Home Audio Speakers
    Hello. I am looking to upgrade my home theater system for a rather large living room with very high celilings. The room is 14x24 and I plan to have the seating against one wall and the TV/Front speakers along the other wall of the 24' end. The room also has cathedral ceilings so I am looking...
  19. Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    It seems to me, so far anyway, that most online retailers have limited inventories of 3D movies. I am wondering if one reason is that there is a limited amount of movies converted to 3D and if this is the case what does it take for studioes to put forth the effort and expense to do this. Does...
  20. Home Audio Speakers
    Ok, I am working on which speakers I should be looking at for my dedicated theater. Drywall goes up in a week or so and things will move quickly from there. The room is 18.5'x 30' x 9'. I will have two rows of theater chairs at 11.5' and 17' with bar seating behind the last row. There will...
