    REW Forum
    Hi, I am, of course, trying to get the best readings I can from my room. I have played with the distance of my speakers and as I move them further apart, my bass readings get better; however, I seem to have a huge null of about 15-20 dbs from about 50hz-70hz, that I can't get rid of. I...

All panels except the corner bass trap are planned to be 2" right now with a 2" gap between it and the wall. The bass trap is 4". All...

    The title says it all. I really miss the orange glow of Yamaha's older models. You knew it was a Yamaha just from that orange glow.They've adopted the "me too" Blue look of every other AVR receiver manufacturer. Can we start a poll to see how many would want the orange display back?
  15. Where to start?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    At the point now where the theater room is (mostly) done and have sat down to watch a few movies. The response from the subs (a pair of FTW-21's in custom 24 inch sealed sonotubes) is good. However it seems like it could be better. My thoughts are to use REW and a BFD to optimize (eq) the...

  20. Where to start? Treating a small room to achieve a suitable mixing environment.

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Hey All, I'm hoping to get a few tips on treating a room for mixing (mainly dance music). Unfortunately, I am stuck with near-cubic room dimensions of 97" x 100" x 95" (wxdxh) and from what I gather from reading through a few threads, cubic room dimensions are far from favorable when trying to...
