    All, I swept our system with REW, and ended up getting a really ugly response. I did a near-field sweep of the sub as well, and it's pretty clear that the problems are almost entirely the house resonating (not just room, but house). See the waterfall at the end. The pink is the near-field...

    As more and more surround modes become available on new receivers the confusion over what mode I should use for a particular surround format on DVDs and BluRay movies. Below is a bit of info as to what works best with what format...

    My room is 17 feet x 14 feet x 8 feet high. I used this page (http://www.bobgolds.com/Mode/RoomModes.htm) to get the theoretical room modes. I then put my subwoofer in the right front corner and my mic dead center of the three dimensional room space (ie 8.5 feet from the end, 7 feet from the...

When playing a TV feed through the receiver, I am not able to use the same range of Surround modes that work with my DVD input, which is connected to...

    I have a 5.1 setup and wondering what some of the best processing modes may be for watching movies that have DD, DD+ or TrueHD. I know the best thing is to just listen and see what sounds best. However I'm a bit confused as to which modes would even make sense. For example, would a Dolby Pro...

    I've been looking into this room modes stuff and been thinking. If I'm off base here, someone please correct me. I've downloaded a room mode calculator and run a few dimensions. The way it looks, to get a low(~20hz) frequency boost (by way of room), one would need a a room with one dimension at...

    Thank you gentlemen for the calculators. After an exhaustive search, I've not been able to determine modes for a NONrectangular room. Specifically an "L" shaped room. More specifically, "L" shaped rooms that terminate in open hallways (no doors). Realising of course, the calculations would have...

    Well it had been driving me nuts for a while as to why my receiver seemed to be putting out more bass in the mains than it should (playing bass considerably higher than where it should be crossed over). I'm still experimenting, but it looks like the issue is that I had one of the Yamaha...
