  1. REW Forum
    These is probably a very dumb questions, but I at least need to ask it. I just recently bought myself a FBQ2496 to through on my B&W sub. (Merry Christmas to me!!) I've been messing around trying to learn REW and needed clarification. When you adjust the trace offset (db) and add the offest to...
  2. System Setup and Connection
    I've read numerous threads/articles on speaker calibration, and have calibrated my system using the AVIA DVD. Two questions that I have are: 1. Is the correct procedure to run a test tone to say the LF speaker and set the MASTER volume control on the receiver to 75db measured with an SPL meter...

    Hi, I have two book shelves covering my front corners. If I put a bass trap behind them will they have any affect? My second question is if I put bass traps on a stand in my rear corners do the edges of the traps have to be touching the walls? Or can the traps be spaced away from the...
  6. System Setup and Connection
    I want to lay out my history and plans, then ask questions on if what I am doing will be ok in the opinions of others: When HDTV first came out, I purchased a Hitachi 42" projection tv. I have an Onkyo receiver (no HDMI input/output). I have a bose accoustimass with bass module and five...

    Questions About 4 Fi 18" IB Setup I am currently building a home theater and have decided to do an IB with four of the Fi 18" IB subs. They will be in an array facing towards the seating below the screen. I have a false wall built for the screen, and was planning on building a faceplate that...
  8. Samsung
    I have a Samsung HCM4216W (P55A chassis) with convergence problems (suprise, suprise). I was able to find a service manual but I think there might be a mistake in it. If you look at the board, some resistors are obviosly different physical sizes than others. According to the schematic, the large...
  9. REW Forum
    I'm in the final stages of building a new theater. REW seems like a great program. I've just begun to try and learn to use it. Any help is greatly appreciated. Taking brucek's lead, I bought the Turtle Beach USB SRM sound card, Behringer ECM8000, and the Xenyx 802. For the time being, I'd like...

  11. Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    1) I was reading BruceK's BFD review it noted that the BFD generates a phase shift in the signal. How big of an issue is it? Would it ever be a problem? 2) Without the MIDI cable will REW automatically generate the filter settings like those pictured in the help guide...
  12. Home Audio Subwoofers
    I am thinking of buying the HSU STF-2 subwoofer since my very old Yamaha YST-SW60 sub really sucks, especially when the new THX flower intro played on Clone Wars. It sounded awful; most of the time it is fine, but I guess the THX demo was a little deeper than most of my blu-ray discs. Can...

    The JVC RX-D702B receiver is a little behind the curve right now. It is also discounted quite a bit up here where I live. Can you offer your comments or opinions on whether you see this as a good receiver? It lacks some of the newest audio decoders, but maybe I don't need them for the price...

  16. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi, I have been reading on the board alot, and thought i'd give my first post a shot :jiggy: I'm a huge fan of DIY so I thought i'd build my own sub. I thought id ask as much questions first before I order so i can make the right choices. Lets start with some specs: I have a small living room...
  17. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    So, I think I've decided to go the DIY route. Seems like I can get better drivers and a smaller footprint sub for a better price than elsewhere. So, a few questions. I have been playing around in Win ISD and Unibox(?), and I really have no idea what most of it means. What does the box frequency...

    I recently purchased a Behringer ECM8000 Mic and Xenyx 802 Mixer for REW, is there any calibration that needs to be done (file) for REW or how do I use it instead of my Radio Shack SPL meter?
