    I'm just starting to think about using REW to see what my room looks like - and I'm just doing some research before I give it a try. I have a digital Radio Shack SPL meter that I see can be used - and I also have a mike that came with my Harman Kardon 3600 for doing the auto calibration. Is it...

    Home Theater Room Photos (Finished Rooms Only)
    I've finally finished building and rebuilding all of my speakers countless times and have been upgrading equipment and amplifiers for the past 7 years to get what I have now. The sound reproduction is unbelievable and like "at the concert" sounding. Movies are as good or better. Now that I...
  13. Mike P. need your expertise!!!! Sub modeling

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    First let me say, I am an idiot! I do not know what I was thinking or where I got my information from but it was wrong! I built two CSS SDX 15” sonotube sealed subs. With 5 ft^3 air space. Now I know I looked up the sealed designs on the CSS site, but for some reason instead of the 3.4 or 6.5...

    Hey! i see you've got experience with the Mach5 brand, I've got a 18 inch ixl 2.2 that just seems way off. The driver has much lower sensitivity than advertised and the T/S were all way off. I'll have to get the measurements again, but i ended up putting it on the back burner. Its been over a...

    I was hoping that Mike P. (and possibly others) would be willing to review this design, and advise me accordingly. The design will incorporate 4 EHQS 12 (4ohm version) drivers in a tower configuration with a slot port at the top (or bottom). The inner dimensions of the box are 20" wide x...
