  1. PC-13 Ultra position

    Hello, This might be a silly question, but, would there be any bad consequences if I lay the PC13 Ultra on its side along the wall to hide it from view? i.e. will it damage the sub or enclosure?
  2. Controlling Behringer DEQ2496 from listening position

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    The DEQ2496 front panel is connected to the main unit by a short flat cable. You can use the front panel as a wired "Remote Control" I extended the short flat cable with a 5 Meter flat cable and this way I have full control of the DEQ2496 when I am sitting in my listening positioning in my...
  3. Listening position in reference room size

    System Setup and Connection
    My audio system is setup in a living room which is LxWxH 24'10" x 15'5" x 8'.

  4. Data Supporting a Single Setup Mic Position for Audyssey or Dirac Live

    Audio Processing
    NOTE: Not for Dirac Live after all... The initial measurements taken when this report was first posted seemed to support the use of a single mic measurement position for getting good results with Audyssey and with Dirac Live. More recent measurements and experiences have shown that this is not...

  6. sub position and group delay

    REW Forum
    Been thinking and reading a bit more and concluded that i need to spend more time locating my sub relative to my mains before using REW to look at the combined response in room. For example the sub i have, has significantly more group delay than my mains. I take that to mean that my sub needs...
  7. Even Sound Quality At The Listening Position

    REW Forum
    I have been using REW and my laptop and the M-Audio Soundcard to take measurements of my room for a while now, I have the room sounding really good at the LP. Since that is where the mic is when I take measurements, what I have noticed is that anywhere other than the LP the bass is more...
  8. UMIK-1 position

    REW Forum
    I know the UMIK-1 is a omnidirectional microphone, but does it matter if the mic is virtual or at 45°, or 90° for taking a measurement? I'm trying to analyze a speaker frequency response and don't know what position the microphone needs to be in. Also how far should the microphone be away from...
  9. Dual sub position ?

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I know how crucial sub position is for a single sub, but how important is position with 2 subs? I use 2 subs now and they sound quite good in opposite corners of my listening room. They are 10in. down firing KW 100s. We are redecorating the listening room and will now be able to put the...

  12. umik-1 position for measurement

    REW Forum
    I have 4-way tower speakers: the LF drivers are bi-amped using separate amps. The top three drivers use stock passive network and powered by another 2-channel amp (left and right). I want to take freq response for these speakers. For the LF, it's straightforward just point the mic at the...
  13. Mic position

    REW Forum
    Probably a dumb question here but in what position is the mic to be pointed at. Straight up, in the main listening position, as I assumed or what? Using a UMM-6 USB mic.

  16. MultEQ XT - Single position music optimization

    Audio Processing
    My preamp has Audyssey MultiEQ XT and I am experimenting with it for my studio where I want to focus on just one listening position without compromise. Does it really make sense to take all the possible measurements at places around the listening position? Or would it be better to just take a...

  20. mic position for measurement

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    HTS Forum, I'm wanting to measure the acoustics of my studio with a Behringer omnidirectional measurement microphone. Is it best to point the mic toward the front of the room (toward speakers) or toward the ceiling to perhaps measure the entire room response? Thanks, Weldon (post number one BTW)
