  2. Test sub at higher db with macbook?

    REW Forum
    Hi, How can I adjust settings to test my subwoofer at higher db with a macbook. When I run "check levels" before taking a measurement I can get clipping if I try and set it around 90db. I'm hoping running a sweep at a higher level will give me a better idea of response of between 18-20hz. I...

  6. Umm-6 mic with Macbook Pro problem

    REW Forum
    OK, feeling pretty frustrated with this… First I bought the wrong microphone (Emm-6), which was causing its own set of problems (but was somewhat functional). Decided it meant enough to me to use REW that I went ahead and bought the Umm-6 instead, which I thought would be much easier to work...
