  1. how loud are IB subs through the rest of house

    IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    I'm thinking about building 2x18 IB subs (probably start with one manifold, then move to 2). My media room is on the 2nd floor, has attic above and on three sides of the room, faces an exterior wall which is about 10-15ft from the neighbor. Will an IB sub resound through the whole house? can...

  4. Ohm load of speakers in series?

    Home Audio Speakers
    A pair of 8 ohm speakers, and a pair of 4 ohm speakers are wired in series. What is the ohm load felt by the amplifier? I know that two 8 ohm speakers in series would be 4 ohm.
  5. Paralleling amp section (2 or more)-> 1 LOAD?

    System Setup and Connection
    The wildwood flower grew wild on the farm. We never known what it was called. I've done many things in audio but never this. I am researching the possibility to drive one load (speaker) with the outputs (identical input to each) of two or more amp sections. so far the answer is "it...

    Borderlands 2 Load Times Are Back, This Time with Larger Environments Borderlands 2 is on its way, and we’ve just learned that it’ll feature loading times just like its predecessor, but this time around the environments will be much more rich by design. Gearbox Software Concept Artist...
  7. Mobilepre calibration will not load

    REW Forum
    Hello everyone first time poster long time lurker. I have finally gotten around to calibrating my subs and have been trying to learn how to use REW the past few hours. I finally was able to calibrate the mobilepre sound card and resulted with a proper looking graph. When I attempt to load the...

    DIY Speakers
    I've been trying to load the parameters for the Dayton RSS315HA-8 but not having success. I enter the T/s Parameters and the physical dimensions but I get an inconsistency error. I'm entering the proper values but WinISD Pro won't allow me to save them. I'm trying to model a slot vented box...

    DIY Speakers
    I am building two computer speakers and using a parts express pre-assembled x-over. With the woofer being 8 ohm and tweeter being 5 ohm, what is the actual load introduced to the amp when wired straight up to the board on the 8 ohm plugin...

  11. Power Amp Doubles Power As Load Impedance Halves?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    A theoretically ideal power amp would double its power every time the load impedance halves. There are power amps on the market that either claim this or come close to claiming it. IME, these amps are the results of specsmanship, not technology. Here's a real world data point for the...
  12. Problem running REW: can't load standard profile

    REW Forum
    Hello, I'm a newbie from Brazil. I'm trying to run REW but it keeps showing a java exception: "Can't load standard profile: GRAY.pf" and after that, the program ends. Is there a work around? Could you help me on that? Regards, Felipe
  13. Running receiver with no load - safe?

    REW Forum
    So far, I have connected the REW output directly to the sub or used the multichannel input for the sub on the back of the receiver. Both of these methods bypass the crossover used by the receiver. Someone suggested in another thread that the REW input could be connected to an AUX IN on the...
  14. When in the process do you load the SPL Meter Cal file?

    REW Forum
    I've read through the REW help file 3 times now. It never mentions in the setup and calibration process on when to load the SPL meter correction file. When should the SPL Meter correction file be loaded? Before Checking Levels? Before SPL Calibration procedure? Before Making measurements??
  15. Running 4 ohm load on 6-8 ohm reciever!!

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hey guys, I own a Marantz SR8300. I'm running JBL 500's all around (8 ohm). I was thinking of building a center channel with 2 x 8ohm 61/2's (in parallel, giving me a 4 ohm load). Then using a 4 ohm tweeter from a really nice set of older dynasties. My Marantz specifies to use 6-8 ohm loads, I...
  16. Plate Amplifier Load...

    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    A rather odd question that I haven't considered before, but I'm sure somebody has the answer... What load does a plate amplifier present to the system when attached via the high level (speaker, not RCA) input? For the sake of argument, say I were to take an unpowered 4 ohm subwoofer, and a...
  17. Filters wont load to DSP 1124

    REW Forum
    I have happily gotten everything to work well when characterizing my subwoofer. But when I down the filters (3 of them) to the BFD, it appears they are not loading. The entire bank of 12 filter LEDs is dark and 1, 2 and 3 should be lit to indicate a Parametric filter is installed. When I...
