  1. SVSound
    Probably a dumb question. Better to plug a sub into the wall or surge protector ok? I've seen some people mentioning that surge protectors can be current limiting and lower dynamics for a power amp.. is that a myth? What about a more expensive power conditioner?
  2. SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I am taking measurements with REW but have a small problem. As soon as I plug in an RCA to 3.5mm jack cable into the output connecter the guage reads maximum. My PC still manages to get proper readings so I am curious as to why this is happening. Thanks in advance.
  3. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I don't want a metal one, I want it in all plastic so I can still use my speakers. I am looking for an all plastic TRS 1/4" "dummy" headphone plug to stick in my Receivers to keep dust from contaminating the contacts. Does anyone know where I might find something like this?

    Having never done any kind of electrical wiring before, I have a few questions. I've watched a bunch of how-to videos explaining how to strip wire and put banana plugs on the ends, but my wire isn't like the type I keep seeing on the videos and it's confusing the out of me. It's 16 gauge...
  5. REW Forum
    For some reason I am having a of a time with feedback as soon as I connect the Galaxy CM-140 using Turtle Beach Amigo II USB sound card. I have tried 2 different computers with same results. I have Calibrated the Soundcard and the graph look good. I go to Check levels and I can not even get...
  6. REW Forum
    Looking at the Apple website, my Macbook Pro can take a line level input through the line-in input. Has anyone had any luck plugging a Radio Shack meter directly into this input without using an external sound card? I don't have the money for a nice condensor mic and a phantom power sound card...

  8. Home Audio Subwoofers
    Hello all, Have a quick question, hopefully not too dumb :). Have a pair of Optimus 12" dvc passive subs (ported enclosures, model PRO SW-120), each with the coils driven in parallel by an Audiosource AMP-110. Using REW and the BFD, I was able to tame them into producing good smooth output...
  9. System Setup and Connection
    I noticed my subwoofer was humming today... I seldom turn it on as I live in an apartment building and don't want to annoy the neighbors too much. I unplugged everything except the subwoofer and proceeded to plug in one component at a time. As soon as I plugged in my Pioneer 5010FD plasma tv...

    Although my HT does have A/C ducts, and is wonderfully insulated, it is above my garage and can get kind of warm in summer. I have tried a small, chrome "sits on the floor" fan, about 8 in, but it makes too much noise. What specific fans have you guys tried that work in your HT?

    I love the Waves SSL EQ because it really forces you to use your ears as opposed to stock EQs, like the EQ3 in PT, which give a graphical representation of the curve you're applying. It also looks nice as well! To my ear it has some warmth in it's sound which is nice too. A lot of people are...
  15. System Setup and Connection
    I currently have 20 components plugged in to one outlet. The wife has voiced some concern. I have a noma 2 - 6 outlet box plugged into the wall. From there I have 2 good quality (I think?) APC power bars. The only components that draw any amperage are the Viewsnic 37" LCD and the Harmon Kardon...
  16. Home Audio Subwoofers
    Hello, I'm getting an Outlaw sub. It apparently has a port plug that allows the sub to go down to 18hz by plugging up one of the two ports. Would this have any detrimental effects on the sub? I'm mainly concerned about heat distribution and or life span of the sub. Thanks, H.

    Been looking around and can't find many recommendations on RCA plugs for DIY cables, except Canare, which I would prefer not to use. I'd like to make sure they'll carry a 75ohm signal and can be soldered. Ideally would also prefer not to have to pay $20/connector - theh canare's would be fine...
  18. System Setup and Connection
    I am moving all my gear to a rack in a closet for a clean look. So I will be moving the power line conditioner I have used for over the past two years. *Can/should I plug my 1150HD straight into a wall socket?
  19. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am building a sub that I would like to make convertible so to speak by building it tuned with a 4" precision flared port, but would also like to be able to plug it if I so desire. Anyone have any idea how this could be done?
