  4. Speaker Stands for Wireless Surround Speakers / Power Cable Management

    System Setup and Connection
    I recently purchased the Sony HT-RT5 system - which consists of a sound bar, subwoofer and 2 rear surround speakers. It's a wireless system, so there are no speaker wires to run, but each speaker has to be connected to a wall outlet. I looked at several speaker stands for the rear surround...

  6. Movie mixing and bass management

    Audio Processing
    I have been wondering about this for a while so hopefully someone can provide me with some insight. When the sound guy mixes the audio track for a movie, there will be 5-7 full range channels and the .1 LFE. The LFE will have items specifically intended only for that channel. In our receivers...

  8. REW measurements of bass management of Emotiva UMC-200 pre/pro

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hi all, In the past, I have heard about some quirks in the bass management of the now-discontinued Emotiva UMC-1, including Sonnie's review of it. I recently bought a UMC-200 for a two-channel setup with subs. Because the UMC-200 is the successor to the UMC-1, I wanted to check out the bass...
  9. Onkyo TX-NR707 bass management issues

    System Setup and Connection
    While running some bass test tones yesterday on my NR707, I discovered that the receiver is ignoring my crossover settings in all modes except THX Cinema. I have all my speakers set to 'small' and 80Hz. Anyone else experience this? While my mains CAN produce sound down to about 40Hz, I'd...

  12. LFE + Bass Management Question

    Audio Processing
    I've been caught in this dilemma for quite a long time now but seems I'm chasing my own tail. As I understand; Bass and LFE are two separate things. I use my HT purely for movies. I cailbrate my sub in REW to dial a house curve, which pretty much rises by 6-7dB till 28hz starting from 80hz...

    REW Forum
    After using REW for a while it became clear that there are a lot of mdat files generated. When one looks at measuring in a controlled way it soon becomes difficult to determine which files to load when referring back to a previous measurement. REW has some good features in this regard. In...
