Can someone please look at the thread ( link is below) and help me understand what these readings means, and what to fix in the room to improve the sound? Thanks
I have a CSL EMM-6 (w/ sensitivity) and a Scarlett 2i2. I used this basic method to calibrate the SPL of REW. I have the mic calibration file loaded in REW as well as one for the audio interface.
I take a sweep at a given level using HDMI (ASIO4ALL) from the PC to receiver, say -30dB in REW...
Hope you are all very well.
I ran my first test tonight, not sure if I have done things correct but thought I would post my 1st findings.
My room is completely untreated, it's an L shaped area where I work on music productions.
any pointers to problem areas would be greatly appreciated.
OK here's the basics:
I'm a composer, so the computer and monitors are surrounded by controller keyboards and synthesizers, long hard surfaces on all sides except the back. the room has a notably short ceiling, 6' 7" tall 13' wide and 23' long. Carpet, and 2" rock wool traps on the ceiling...
Hi folks. Thanks so much for this great software. This is the first time I have ever bothered to try to get really accurate sound.
I recently bought a pair of BC Acoustique Gange speakers - 3 way non ported four-foot-tall monsters. They are the best speakers I have ever owned. I'm powering them...
Hello, this is my first post, im Dutch so my english aint all that, im sorry for that. However, ill try to make the best off it. First of all, thank you all for all your input and information that can easy be found on this website.
The last 2 months i have updated most of my gear. I bought a...
Simply moving the measurement microphone a few inches causes the measurement nulls and peaks to move around, especially at the higher frequencies.
So, for overall room correction via REW filters, is it best to take an average of numerous readings at different points in the room - or at least...
Hi, I'm running the 5.01 beta and am trying to get the distortion %.
After doing a sweep, I hit the "distortion" button and the various graphs show up (e.g. 2nd harmonic, 3rd harmonic, etc). However, next to the legend it just shows " – dB". Even after I go to "Control" and select percentage...
So seeing as i got REW working correctly I thought I would take readings of my theater room and get some suggestions on what if any changes I should make.
Blue: No Sub, in Pure audio No EQ
Green: Sub with mains Audyessey on
Yellow: Sub with mains Audyessey and EQ on
Red: Sub only
So, I took some readings using Sub + FR, Sub + FL, and Sub + Both Mains. FR + Sub looks the smoothest. As you can see, Sub + FL produces a major dip at 100Hz and Sub + Both Mains produces a major dip at 166Hz. Is this normal? Something I should worry about? Possible to fix? Thanks.
A couple of months ago SpankyHam at Curt Palme's forum sent me some samples of various substrates. They included Dibond, Gatorfoam, Gatorplast, Gatorboard, And various Sintra samples. Here's the data from these samples.

its been a while since I used REW.I have now essentially got some graphical results of various frequencies following the procedue laid down ie just from taking the measurements, nothing else.Where do I go from here eg. smoothing ,filters,equalisation etc.My aim is to hopefully...
For some reason I am unable to measure above around 96db on my REW setup.
I have a ECM8000 and behringer USB card hooked up to a vista laptop. I use a little behringer mixer as phantom power.
When I tried, for fun, to read out some high SPL readings it seems my system insists it can only...
I just did the manual with mp3's that I downloaded and this is what I came up with. The blue line is without any Audyssey corrections and the pink line is with Audyssey . Big time screwups with Audyssey don't you think? I have it crossed over to my mains at 80.
This is with my 18.2.2 IXL ported...
I've been using the BFD and REW for some years now with good results.
But with my latest setup I've been having difficulty equalizing my subwoofer(BK monolith) with the BFD 1124.
My speaker setup is: 2 KEF Q11 towers.
3 Kef eggs.
Crossover for all the...
Finally got everything up and running and wanted to post a first reading. Looking for some initial guidance.
AV123 MFW-15 (2) - front
Mirage 12" sub (rear)
JBL L890C (3) LCR
Onkyo Pro 886
I finally got around to setting up my BFD 1124 with my DIY dual Rythmik 15's sealed.
Here's my unaltered in room response.
Here's my response after 5...
