  1. Need recommendations for DIY LCR...small room.

    DIY Speakers
    So i'm getting a little bit closer to finishing my HT. Probably still about 6 months or so. (I hope!) I've been looking around here and there getting ideas, but I wanted to see what you guys think. Especially since I have no idea what I'm talking about when it comes to audio. I was dead set on...
  2. Moving HT to a New Room.

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    I have been talking about moving my gear from this glorified closet of a room to a much larger room since last year....well the time has come and I for one can't be much happier. Now I'm asking for suggestions, recommendations and just plain old advice on several areas such as speaker placement...
  3. Another small home studio control-room.

    Pro Audio
    Hello everybody, I'm starting this thread as I'm starting to setup a correct control room in this new appartment, motived by the discovery of REW (thank you for this). It's a 4,4m x 3,5m room, 3,2 m height (or 14ft5in x 11ft5in x 10ft5in for the people who measure the world with parts of...
  4. 110", small room. Easy screen?

    DIY Screens
    I'll be painting the room a slightly darker color, but in the past theres been so much splashback from the screen that it washed the image pretty badly. I'm running an Optoma HD70 at 12' in a 14X16 room. White cieling, light carpet and a black area rug under the screen. Its been forever since...
  5. Weird bass effect, odd room.

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    First off, I want to state that I am actually using a Velodyne SMS-1 to do my subwoofer equalization, not REW. I figured this would probably be a good place to find good information on my issue. The SMS-1 uses a Behringer ECM8000 measurement mic and allows for equalization of a sub via the tv...
  6. First time user, in a small room.

    REW Forum
    I am using REW on a Mac with an RS-33-2055 through a MOTU 896 converter, sound played back through a pair of old Mackie HR824's. My room dimensions are 7'4" wide, 11'4" long and 94" high. Basically a finished shed. Untreated as of yet, but full of other stuff. I am wondering about the...
  7. Decision affecting subwoofer in unfinished room.

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I'm in the process of finishing my basement. All walls are up and drywalled.. I'm trying to figure out the best placement for my subwoofer in my space and I'm doing tests for that. My question is that my drop ceiling is not in place yet, and I don't have carpet on the floor as this point in...

  9. Small dedicated HT room. Could use design help

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    I've been looking at my empty game room for over a year now and am officially tired of it being empty. Unfortunately it is not optimal for a HT room, but I will need to make it work. It is L shaped with the largest part of the L being 15x13. The other side is probably an additional 12x12...

  11. Stereo to fit THIS room.

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hello, I've attached an image of my living room. I would like a stereo to give me the very best sound for both music (Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden etc...) and movies. I'm open to seperates or a HTIB. Budgets around $500 - $700. I'm borrowing a BOSE lifestyles and I own and old...
