    As the title says, my REW SPL reading with my UMIK-1 is showing at 90. My SPL meter on my phone shows as 35 at the same time. I must have missed something...I have the UMIK-1 calibration file loaded into REW. I could use the meter on my phone to check my levels, but I'm thinking that with the...

    I have been running an ep4000 with my Aura NS18 sealed sub for a few months. i performed the fan mod which helped but unfortunately in the long run its still too loud to use all the time so I only use it for action movies.

    I'm thinking 120mm "quiet PC" fans right now.. newegg has a few for around $10/ea... But not all fans are created equal. Some "throw" air in all directions, some push air one direction.. I need the latter-- to push air in between several pieces of equipment.. I don't want to spend an arm...

  11. Home Theater Design and Construction
    Hi We can't all afford a couple of grand for a quality "quiet" air conditioning system. So I just wanted to show how I turned a window A/C noise monster into a very quiet unit for my small cottage. All it takes is a bit of sheet metal, a bit of 6" ducking, and lots of duck tape. Total cost...

    I just finished laying down some laminate floor. I purchased the best underlay I could find, which was the Quiet Walk brand. It consists of a thin recycled cotton fiber pad and a vapor barrier. I have about 2/3 of a roll left. I was wondering if I could use this to build panel absorbers and...

    Hello everyone, My new receiver came in the other day. I have seven speakers hooked up, and they are all the same make, size, impedance. Before this receiver is utilized purely for home theater, it'll be used once to provide music at a small reception. As such I would like to take a 2ch...

    I am interested in a quiet computer that will play .flac and do general internet work. I have one 7 yrs old, HP computer, but fan noise is audible, so rather than upgrading the parts, looking to buy a "ready-made" but will keep the 19" monitor to keep the cost down. Hopefully to keep the cost...

    I've ordered my mobo and case- and now it is time for the guts. I'm waiting to see if Intel's price cuts will make AMD lower their prices- should know this week. As far as RAM, I seem to have better luck waiting for one of the weekend sales and buying it then. But- hard drives. Since I'm...
