  1. Which EQ for six subs and front mains?? Help Please!

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hi There, In my HT I have four SI 18 DS4's in one box along the front center of my room (almost completed build), and have one SI 18 HT in each of the rear corners for a total of 6 subwoofers. I guess my questions are two fold. First, do I need to eq each subwoofer independently of each...
  2. How Do I Measure Mains+Sub?

    REW Forum
    Hey, I'm only going to say this once... :foottap: Just kidding! Hope that got your attention. :R Please let me know if any of this doesn't ring true. :nerd: I'd like to clear up some confusion I've come across in several threads the past few weeks. It concerns using REW to measure...
  3. Difference in Measured SPL - Sub vs. Sub+Mains

    REW Forum
    Posted this question last month in the subwoofer forum and one suggestion was to post it here to see if this was something that could be solved in REW. Below are a couple of shots of 3 scans - just the sub; just the mains; and combined. The first with no smoothing, the second with 1/6 smoothing...
  4. Connect Sony STR-DN1050 to EP2500 for mains

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Title states it all. I'm trying to hook up my DN1050 to a spare EP2500 for my L and R mains. To my knowledge and from the research I've done, the DN1050 does not have any outputs for external amps, other than for the LFE. When I bought the DN1050, I didn't plan on using external amps...
  5. SPL Drops when I add Mains (LR) to my Sub

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Why does the SPL drop when I measure my mains with the sub versus just the sub? Below is a graph showing this effect: Same mic location (MLP), same settings in the AVR, same volume, same everything. What gives?
  6. EQ subs with mains running full range

    REW Forum
    in the past I've always ran my 2ch fronts crossed over at around 80hz then use REW and my BFD to get a nice flat in room response. If I were to grab a preamp without the ability to cross over my mains and run them full range,, how difficult would it be to get a decent room response? Phase and...

  8. Connecting Subs & Mains

    System Setup and Connection
    Hello, I'm a newbie at room equalization using REW. I've used an equalizer for 35 years, but have always used them "by ear". I recently put together a 7.1 system and now trying to get the most out of it. From what I've read about REW and equalization, the most important frequency band to...

    Home Audio Speakers
    Hey yall, I have a buddy thats just beginning to put his system together. His current plan is to get a receiver and 2 towers and piece the rest of it together as he goes. Its looking like the Denon X2000 from accessories4less is going to be the choice for a receiver. That leaves us with...

  11. Triple subs... 2 for mains and one for LFE?

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    I'm really wanting to pair a set of REL T5s to my NHT Superzeros as I really perfer the quick sound they offer but I know that dual T5s won't be hitting much db below 40hz for the movies.... will work great for music but I think I'll be left with more to desire. Was thinking of having a third...
  12. Bi-Amping Front Mains

    Home Audio Speakers
    Does biamping the front mains make much of a difference in HT use. I'm going to be receiving a pair of rti12 which are pretty power hungry from what I read. I'm using a yamaha rxa2000 and I can biamp them sacrificing the back rear surrounds and still have a 5.2 system with front presence. Not to...
  13. Analyzing Sub + Mains Simultaneously

    REW Forum
    I took some REW measurements today of just my sub, then both mains together, the the sub + mains together and would appreciate opinions on what I found. I ran a 10hz - 120hz sweep on the sub, a 10hz - 20khz sweep on the mains, and a 10hz - 20khz sweep on the sub+mains, and it looks like I have...

  15. miniDSP with AVR to eq mains??

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hey I bought a miniDSP specifically to eq by subwoofers. Now that I am finished getting my low frequency response nice and flat, I am looking at my full range FR, and find it an awful mess. YPAO seems to like it this way and is doing nearly nothing to improve it. So.... Can the miniDSP be...

  17. filter range for mains,center, and surrounds

    REW Forum
    Hi all, I have pored through a lot of this site as well as others but I haven't come across what I am looking for. What is the rule of thumb range for EQ filtering on the mains, center, and surrounds? I can't imagine any filtering up in the 15K range will do anything but give me one less...

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I've a FBQ1000 in my home theater installation for the sub. It works fine but since all my equipment is remote controlled except th FBQ, I wanted to use a remote controlled power switch to turn on and off the unit. The FBQ power switch left at the ON position and the remote controlled relay...
  19. Are my mains filtered below 80Hz?

    Two Channel Audio
    I didn't know where to put this, since technically it's a 6 channel receiver, but I'm only using 2 (okay, three) channels, with two "mains" bookshelf speakers. The amp is a Kenwood VR-7070, and I'm only using it as a power amp for my computer. CH 1: Main Left - Left Bookshelf speaker JBL...

    DIY Speakers
    Ok, so I have a new project. Don't know much about speakers building, but have plenty of knowledge/skill in cabinet building. I'm looking for a moderately awesome setup that won't set me back a bundle. For now, this will be a 2.1 system, will add the center channel later. My room is...
