  1. REW Forum
    I’ve got my dedicated Home Theater completed. Got REW installed and working. Now I need to put it all together and see what I can get out of it. First some logistics. The room is 16 by 26. Two rows of seats. The rear seats are on a riser made to be a bass trap. It is open at the bottom of the...

    So I intended to put my subwoofer in MLP today and move the mic, but it actually was easy enough to move the 100 lb HSU sub after my tailbone healed. I have 6 main positions around the front stage, since I do not want to sacrifice rear space with a primary sub (it is a kids play and yoga...
  3. Mobile Audio
    I've been working on installing a stereo in by car on & off for a while & I seem to not be able to tune the settings to my liking. I was wondering if someone will help me with this setup. I currently don't have a motor in the car & have tried to ask the local car stereo shop guy to come to my...
  4. REW Forum
    Hey again, So I just updated to the latest beta version of REW and turned off direct monitor, which apparently resolved the active monitoring path. I'm under the impression that I should be aiming for a target level on the scans around 75dbs, but the scans I've attached when setting test levels...
  5. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hello, I currently own a SVS 20-39PC+ that I bought 8 years ago. Was going to upgrade to another SVS, but got bit by the DIY bug. This DIY design will be used for both HT and music. Satellite speakers will be crossed over at 80 Hz, but LFE (.1) channel effects will go up to 120 Hz (brick wall...
  6. Home Theater Projectors
    Morning, Well - after waiting for what seems like an eternity - I finally got my new Epson 3020 mounted and paired up with an Elite 92 inch Cinegrey screen. Screen went up first about 10 days ago and has issues already. As soon as we fired up the "up/down" remote - the motor started making an...

    I have three identical speakers across the front of my Home Theatre; ATC SCM10-2a (2-way Active/Powered Monitors). I was fooling around with room correction the other day (Anthem MX300 on demo) and had some strange readings from my front speakers - big dips in treble starting at 2KHz. A few...
  8. DIY Screens
    I have a surface finish issue with my screen that I can see as variations of reflectivity. It looks like you are watching a TV cleaned with a filthy shop towel. I am hoping for some guidance to remedy this ;) This is what I have and the painting history of my screen: • I have a 125”...
  9. System Setup and Connection
    Hey guys. I won the Chase HT giveaway and now am looking for input on how to best place everything in my room. It has been 7 years since I built the room and have made very few changes and almost none over the last 4 years. I see this as a great opportunity to try something new! The room is...
  10. Home Theater Design and Construction
    I have a rather unusual layout for my master bedroom and would greatly appreciate some assistance in placing the speakers. My wife is insisting on using either in-wall speakers, in-ceiling speakers or smaller satellites that are wall mounted. We will only be using the speakers to listen to...
  11. DIY Screens
    :olddude: Hi everyone. My experience in HT is with my starter system. An old Optima 1600 lumens 480P Projector and a DIY dual core evga 8600 powered HTTP. Creative Sound Blaster 5.1 Sony audio 110 diagnol roll up screen. My brain is on overload as I try to work within my budget to take...
  12. Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    Hi all I would like to buy a new bluray player and need some advise. I have a Onkyo tx-nr5007 so I would like it to do the sound processing. I am looking for a bluray player that will bitstream the audio to the avr. I was thinking a PS3 slim but do not know of any other options. So what I am...
  13. Home Theater System Recommendations
    An upcoming living room remodel will require me to make a change in my subwoofers. I currently have duel SVS SB12+, duel SVS PB-10s, and a Hsu MBM-12 in a 2400^3 foot room which has a large opening to the rest of the house. The space immediately adjacent to the LR is about another 3500^3 feet...
  14. Creative Sound Solutions
    Hi All, I'm new here and since it seems that a number of members here have used passive readiators in their subs, I thought I would ask a few questions. I am using Unibox to come up with an enclosure volume for a pair of SDX15s with a pair of AE PR18-2500s. To keep things small as the...
  15. Home Theater Design and Construction
    OK everyone, this kind of goes hand-in-hand with my other thread on ceiling tiles. Hopefully between the two threads, I can come up with a good direction. First: Is it a must to have a flat dark color for your theater room? I have a 92" projector screen in a room only 134" wide if that...
  16. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Here is my current setup. It is in a room open in 4 different ways to the rest of the house! The room itself is 12x22x8.5. I have an Infinity Kappa Perfect 12 in a ported enclosure powered by a BASH (From PE) 300. The sound is great, clear, low, and just enough to get the juices flowing...
  17. Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hello all. Long-time lurker, first time poster. So this weekend I sat down with my Ratshack Digital SPL, RoomEQ and my BFD that's been gathering dust on a shelf since I picked it up on eBay 2 years ago. Long story short, my laptop seems to hate RoomEQ, so I fell back on the "subtest" XLS and...
  18. Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    I work in home theater as a system designer/integrator. Just starting out, with a new product. I have a multiterabyte server system which records HD, regardless of source ( OTA,Cable, or Sat ). First, let me say I'm aware of the entanglements, but I also know from being a memeber of the AVS...
