  1. Upper Range of Ported Build

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am contemplating building a ported box (7-10 cu. ft.) using the Dayton RSS390HF-4 15" driver. Goal is to run from 20hz-300hz so the box can be used with various Oris horns than can go down to 150hz-250hz. I would really like a LF section that could cover the 20hz-300hz range. Anybody have...
  2. Is Full Range EQ a no go?

    REW Forum
    As many have said before me the knowledge on this web site is fantastic and I have read with interest and put into practice lots of the techniques I have seen online, house curve, min number of filters etc ... However, there is one area which appears not be to addressed and that is Full Range...
  3. acceptable 250Hz-20Khz range deviation?

    REW Forum
    When it comes to speakers matching timbre with each other and using REW to look at the frequency plots, what is an acceptable deviation from 250Hz-20KHz between each speaker?:dontknow: Not necessarily to a perfectly flat response,but to where the speakers seem to blend with each other...

  5. What $$$$ range is DIY really separate itself?

    DIY Speakers
    In most consumer products you get a function of value per dollar having a high slope at the bottom of the price range (much more value per dollar for every more dollar spent on the margin) to a point of inflection where the marginal dollar buys less and less until it comes to the luxury level...
  6. Ideas for DIY full range center speaker

    DIY Speakers
    So I've been dealing with the floor-standing center speaker dilemma, and I was wondering if anyone has simply taken a floor-stander and modified it to fit sideways or even put the guts into a DIY cabinet that's shorter or even horizontal. Mine have a tweeter, a 5" and two 8" drivers... what if I...
  7. Reservoir JBL’s full range “Lets go to work”.

    REW Forum
    At the present time, with more time, on my hands I’m dealing with the matching LCR yet again with the two subs playing the same range in the low end department 15Hz while the remain frequency response sweeps though up to 16,000kHz. So far applied a frequency cut on the left channel as it was a...
  8. Please compare Rocket 450's in <$600 range

    Home Audio Speakers
    Hi guys, I know this might be a little below your preference, but I was wondering what opinions there were for other speakers in the price range of the Rocket 450's (<$600/pr). Talking towers right now. I listened to 450's (and for comparison, 760's but not 850's) over at 45minaudio's shop...
  9. Maxiumum Octave Range for BFD or FBQ

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I am modeling a small sealed sub that would fit inside my Ikea Expedit bookcase. The hole is 13.25"x13.25" I already have 1 Dayton DVC 10" driver so I figured I'd pick another one up. Not the idea drivers but a neat little experiment non the less. I was researching building an LT for this...
  10. back for more - full range this time

    REW Forum
    Hi all, I want to attempt to calibrate my main speakers this time around. I had successfully calibrated my sub (flat to 13hz) about 2.5 years ago. I've just did some reading these last few days and decided to use REW to calibrate my main speakers this time. I understand that I need some...
  11. Full range measurements & averaging

    REW Forum
    Couple of quick questions from a new user (me). :dumbcrazy: I plan on using the DBX mic for full 20Hz to 20KHz measurements, and I'd like to know if the mic is to be used with the tip pointed to the ceiling or at the speaker. I'd also like to do some averaging of the responses taken in a 3...
  12. BFD for Full Range EQ?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I'm reading through here to get some tips and ideas on how to possibly integrate the BFD into my budget HT setup...and most of the descriptions and guides here seem biased to bass management. Is there a reason why people wouldn't be using the BFD for full spectrum EQ? I ask, because I have...
  13. Question on speaker range

    Home Audio Speakers
    I was wondering, if I had speakers for my mains that topped out at 16khz what or how much would I miss from mains that would go to 20khz. Would it be profound or barley missed. Also I am 51 and I don't know what if any difference that would make in hearing different frequency's. THANKS.......
  14. Galaxy CM-140 range (Newbie Question)

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hi all, I have just ordered a PB13 Ultra. I expect I will have some REW and Behringer related questions for you later. For now my query is related to the Galaxy. There probably is an easy answer but it doesn't make sense to me as I have no idea how this all works apart from trying to follow...
  15. 2 Channel Audio 2 subs vs 1.. Full range or not?

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Folks I am about to admit defeat. My room acoustics are not the best but, I have to say I thoroughly disappointed with my setup. I seem to have no luck what so ever at integrating a sub with non-full range towers. Mythos Ones and a Supercube I just do not seem to want to marry. At least for what...
  16. Full range vs crossover proof thanks to REW

    REW Forum
    I have been playing with REW for a while, and have been less than impressed with my graphs as a result of the auto EQ feature on my AVR635. I did a firmware upgrade today through the RS232 port and now I have a sweet balanced machine as the following graphs should show. Apart from that obvious...
  17. "Sub" amplifiers for full range use

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Has anyone tried using amps that are traditionally considered "subwoofer amps" for full range (LCR and/or surrounds)? There seems to be a lot of bang-for-the-buck in amps like the Behringer EP1500/2500's. I could envision 2 of 'em running LCR and sub, but don't know how they'd do. The...
  18. Newbie. Fast Track Pro or E-MU 0404? or other in $200 range?

    REW Forum
    Newbie. Fast Track Pro or E-MU 0404? or other USB external sound in $200 range? I'm getting ready to finally buy some "real" sub-woofers, and I want to be able to properly calibrate/tune/adjust them as best I can. For many years, I've had a Radio Shack Sound Level Meter- Model Number 33-2050...
  19. Full range EQ à la Française

    REW Forum
    Hi there, here i intend to post my experiences about full range eq corrections on my system using REW. I' discovered this great tool a few weeks ago, after trying to get the best from a DEQ24ç6 i recently bought. After some testing and auto eq, i realized that i needed to get more informations...
  20. SPL meter frequency range question

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I am planning to get a SPL meter to do some measurements for BFD The Galaxy CM-140 gives the range as 31.5Hz to 8000Hz and it is $129 The radio shack digital SPL meter is some $50 but it does not say the frequency range. I was wondering if the radio shack meter is good enough or if I should...
