  1. Just Point Please

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hello reader, First post, I'm really fresh to this whole DIY speaker thing, but I managed to pull off a set of Paul Carmody OSMTM builds and I'm looking to gain a deeper understanding of what I just did, especially how all the components in a crossover interact to split up frequencies. I have...

  6. My ceiling first reflection point is behind my head

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Went w/ the mirror found all my first reflection points for my L/R Mains. Since my ceiling is a cathedral my reflection point sits behind my head. I use the computer chair for my music listening and it sits where it shows. I'll start hanging my panels this week.
  7. Phasing At The Acoustic Xover Point

    REW Forum
    Can someone show me examples of correct phasing at this point?
  8. Near-field / far-field transition at crossover point

    DIY Speakers
    Perhaps someone can shed some light on this for me and hopefully it won't sound like a dumb question.... I have a three way design which involves an RS225-8 crossing over to a Scanspeak 10F-4 at a planned frequency of around 400hz-500hz. I am planning of doing near-field and far-field...
  9. Determining correct crossover point

    DIY Speakers
    How's it going gentlemen? Have 2 KEF 6.5 uni-Q speakers that I'm going to build as book shelves or more Dolby Atmos speakers that set atop the towers. Would do the dimensions of the Q300 or similar to the newly announced KEF R50 making the adjustment of the enclosure slightly bigger for the...

  11. Sub behind LP - point mic where?

    REW Forum
    If the sub that I am measuring is behind the main listening position, where would I point the mic? When I was measuring yesterday I had the mic pointing forward as if I was watching a movie. Is this correct, or do I need to point it at the sub?
  12. Looking to make THIN first reflection point panels!

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I just spent some time marking out reflection points for my two rows of seating and I have 6 different points I need to cover. I also want to make this room look very nice and I think having panels hanging 4 inches off the surface of the wall is going to look weird and in one place, around a...
  13. First Measurement - Starting point for a work already in progress

    REW Forum
    Good evening guys. Tonight I took my first REW measurement. I have been sitting on the fence for a while trying to make sure I read as much info as possible before getting started. Measurements are taken with a Macbook pro and a Dayton UMM-6. I have loaded the calibration from Dayton into REW...
  14. What's the point of analog outs?

  15. Is this a good starting point for LF

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Dark Blue line is front row Blue/Green is rear row. 2 SUBS. I moved them around the whole room and measured, looking for the location with the least dips in response. Adjusting phase and re-measuring. This is 0 treatments, 0 eq. The 2nd graph shows all the measures as a cobbled mess.
  16. White Point Calibration

    Video Calibration
    My Samsung Un60D7000 has two seperate White Point controls, one is the offset & gain, the other is the 10p. If I don't touch the offset/gain, the 10p does virtually nothing. So I used to offset/gain to adjust 20 & 80, got them near perfect, switched to the 10p to fine tune everything, and 50-70...
  17. At what point do we loose color banding and crawling pixels?

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    Or maybe I should be asking something more like: why are there specs for things like refresh-rate and contrast, but no spec for pixel-crawling or color banding? (or are there, and I'm missing it?) Point being for myself: I'm tight with the dollar. My wife would like a larger screen than our...

  20. reflection point above LP 2'x2' or 2'x4' size panel?

    Home Audio Acoustics
    If I need to place a panel above the listening position,which is just for a small single position,would it be acceptable to use just a 24"x24"x4" panel or go with a full size 24"x48"x4 panel. I'm also wanting to re-due my front 3 ceiling reflection points with three 24"x24"x4" square panels.I...
