  1. Pb-2000 output much lower when using MiniDSP

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hello everyone, I recently bought two SVS pb-2000 subwoofers to try out to see if I want to upgrade from the dual pb-1000's that I currently run. I've had some success taming some massive peaks that I get in my listening room with my MiniDSP 2x4 (not the HD version) and my dual pb-1000s. I...
  2. [REQ] Extend lower bound for band limited white noise

    REW Forum
    I was attempting to generate some band limited white noise today and noticed that it can only go down to 10Hz. Is it possible to extend this? 5Hz would do, 1Hz would be great though

    Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    Vizio was born a price competitor. Yes, the company has slowly ventured into higher-end waters over the last several years, but its name will forever remain linked to value and savings. Recently, it announced a new series of televisions that takes the notion of savings to an entirely new...

    Chat Box SWAMP
    Well we woke up to a sight that is not typical for our part of the country. I'll be watching out for the postman today as snow or sleet will be an issue for them today at least in my neighborhood. Here is a shot of the cul de sac in front of our house and the street is a sheet of ice.
  5. RTA lower scale curve question

    REW Forum
    Hi In general all things are going well with readings. But one question about the lower part of the RTA graph. I've joined an example where I measured drivers freq responses individually and total. I Wonder why the bottom line in the HF is climing up till the end? The same but less on LF...

  7. How to design an enclosure to maximise lower frequencies?

    DIY Speakers
    Ok basically i have a pair of 6X9 speakers and i bought an enclosure for them off ebay, about .31 cubic feet in size. Now, although their response is largely increased, the lower frequencies are not that good. How do you go about designing an enclosure to get better bass? I'm currently studying...
  8. bass seem loud at lower volume

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I set up my system with the AVR's test tone played at volume control knob at 0db. I put SPL meter switch weight C, slow and matched the sub volume to the other speakers. All read 76db. I also did a graph in REW and it blended well with the mains up to 150hz. And the bass seems a bit loud in...

  10. Want to build a house curve that reflects the decrease in hearing sensitivity at lower volumes..Help

    REW Forum
    I don't have Audyssey's dynamic equalization in my prepro and would like to set up a custom setting in my Velodyne SMS-1 to adjust subwoofer levels for lower SPLs. My problem thus far is that I can't find anything that says how much you adjust which frequencies as the SPL decreases. Does...
  11. Two lower subs or one better one?

    Any opinions on which would be better in terms of SPL output even sound throughout the room low distortion at high levels My cost are about the same for both options. However, I do not have the money for these two options. I will have the money for one PB-NSD in about 3 to 4 months and I...
  12. I want to lower tuning.

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    So currently I'm shooting for 18hz on my build. http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/...build.html I want to go lower. I see that most seem to shoot for around 15hz. I don't want to run into problems with port resonance. I'm still reading up and trying to understand the concept and have good...
