  1. Did I do it right?

    REW Forum
    Newbie REW user here. I'm using REW 5 beta, the Behringer UCA 202 sound card and CM-140 SPL meter. Earlier I had calibrated my sound card: http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/rew-forum/33972-does-soundcard-calibration-look-ok.html So today I tried running my first REW measurement. Step 1...

    REW Forum
    Hey guys, So I bought a Radio Shack digital meter, a BFQ2496, all the cables/adapters necessary to calibrate my soundcard, and installed the Radio Shack correction file into REW. My first graph came out with a nasty dip (line in RED), and then I added some filters and came up with the GREEN...
  4. Did I do it right?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I have heard from many people including Crown employees that the XIT is the better of two amps but so far the XLS 802D is kicking the XTI' 2000's rear. I have not messed with the bass synthesizer so that might help the XIT out. The XLS seems to be a lot more ballsy. It seems to grab a hold of a...
  8. Calibrated right?

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I Just replaced some gear. I bought an Insignia 5.1 speaker package and used everything but the two fronts, I had my old mains for that. I have it Xed Over in the middle, the X over Control lists 60Hz-100Hz, and Volume is at half, any more and the sub is way too loud on movies like Peal...
