    Hello, all. I haven't messed around with REW in about a year, but I was trying to set it up yesterday again to take some measurements and dial in my 2 new subs. Each time I try to calibrate it, it keeps giving me an error that the audio level is too low, (-129dB). When I tap on the mic on...

  3. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hello! Long-time reader, first-time (well, sixth-time) poster! I’m searching for a good sound bar to connect to my SONY Bravia 55” TV in my living room and thought I’d ask around on a few forums.

    Hello all! I've just set up my SR7008 which i just picked up for 799.99 on a flash sale. I'm currently running a 7.1 Klipsch setup. Now my question is, what kind of amp would sound the best with my RF-7's? They're rated at 250W continuous and 1000w peak. I'm getting decent sound, but I feel...

  8. REW Forum
    Hi All, I have been using REW for a few days now and am slowly getting to know the program. Tonight I ran a few sweeps thru with the UMIK not in the USB port. REW picked up the sound via the onboard mic, and despite picking up the UMIK on start up i am getting low signal levels, e.g. -70 or...

    I'm looking for a fixed frame 106" and was browsing around online and saw a Silver Ticket 106" for $235.

    Well, I have been reading and watching and clicking and comparing... I think my eyes are going to fall out. History: I not-long-ago built the infamous DIY speakers, Natalie P, in full tower form. I have been driving them off a DIY tripath amp. They sound great, but I really want something...
