    Adding my surround speakers in the basement finally, and I want the wires to be in the walls. The area I'm working on is the finished side of the basement in a new build (well... 2014 anyway) so I will assume the builders framed the concrete walls however a builder frames concrete walls (I...

    Hi Gang, Been Awhile: 1- began recently began using REW again and after about 6 measurements, a generated signal did not lead to any sound output from the system. After closing REW it would work for a while, again, then go silent. Previously, I could run as many tests as I wanted. However...

    Today, I tried to do a calibration of my fronts and sub. Did the sub alone, the fronts together and then L & R separately. Dialed in the filters in my Yamaha RX-A3040. Used the same filters on both my fronts, up to 200hz, and then separate filters for each. To my horror, it sounds dull and way...

    Hi, I have been using REW for a while on a Windows based machine, but I'm now looking to see if it is possible to run measurements directly from the terminal in Ubuntu or raspian. What I'm trying to do is to have a small headless Ubuntu or rasberry pi box which I can connect a UMIK-1 USB mic...

    So this topic was brought up in another post and thought it would be a good discussion. Can you damage a speaker running them full range if they really cant do full range say from 20Hz-20kHz My understanding is that if you keep the input volume within its designed range and the crossovers are...

    in the past I've always ran my 2ch fronts crossed over at around 80hz then use REW and my BFD to get a nice flat in room response. If I were to grab a preamp without the ability to cross over my mains and run them full range,, how difficult would it be to get a decent room response? Phase and...

    Hello All, I am trying to setup my room to start measuring with REW. I have my home computer with on board sound card and GeForce GT 610 video card hook to my Marantz 7007 via HDMI. From my 7007 I have a Crown XTi 4000 running my 15"s and Crown XTi 2000 running my Paradigm Montior 11's...

    Im new to REW and am feeling a little out of my depth, even with all the fantastic help guides. I'm using a UMIK1 (with cal file) with an iMac running the latest Yosemite OS. I have everything connected and I think setup correctly, I've run the pink noise and set my receiver so the SPL meter...

    Just getting started with a netbook and a UMIK-1 here. Can I count on my netbook's headphone output to be a reliable source for generating a measurement sweep?

    Hello all! (you can skip this) For some background, I recently purchased a home (Jan) and I didn't like the popcorn ceiling in the living room. I decided to tear down the ceiling, while the ceiling was gone I thought I should install recessed lights so I did. Then I thought, hmmm since i live...

    Hi All, I have been using REW for a few days now and am slowly getting to know the program. Tonight I ran a few sweeps thru with the UMIK not in the USB port. REW picked up the sound via the onboard mic, and despite picking up the UMIK on start up i am getting low signal levels, e.g. -70 or...

    I'm hoping all my cables arrive today. I did have a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable so I have run the soundcard calibration. I will be using the old RS analog SPL to measure Subwoofer only. I have loaded the .cal file for the SPL meter. What do I do next? I want to set the sub in the MLP then go around...

    Hey there, I've been playing around with my new toy, a Marantz 6007 - and have run 4 Auddessey calibrations in the last couple of days. For the last one, I used the guide here at HTS for my mic positions - [/IMG] I found that my soundstage width shrank a little, but then again I did move...

I've got a pc running Windows 7 x64 with maxed 32gb...

    So, I was wanting to eventually have a larger room for the HT. I see a lot of Movie Theaters run like over 12 speakers in the room. I was wondering if running it similar to a Theater would yield better results. Having something along the lines of dual centers, than having the Fronts facing...

    a) Does it make sense to set the AVR mains Xover to 60 HZ prior to measuring the Sub response since that is were I intend to finally set the xover freq ? b) What max freq should I EQ to ? is 75HZ enough or should I go up to 90 or 100hz ? Obviously the higher the max freq the more filters are...
