    Having problems trying to calibrate the on-board sound card (Realtek) on my Acer laptop - get the squiggly lines problem.

    After learning that the Radio Shack SPL meter is basically useless in the mid to high frequencies, I'm looking to find out what is the next step up that will work to about 12-16khz with a decent level of reliability? I am not looking for high end equipment. Just budget stuff that will work at...

  8. Home Theater Design and Construction
    Basically building a home theater room that will have two rows of theater seats. The room has eight foot ceilings. Behind my second row of seats will be a pool table followed by a bar. So the step up will not only be for the seats, but for the seats and everything behind it. How low can I go...

    I am about to embark on my next speaker project, 4 floor standing full range (55hz-20khz) HT speakers. I will be using the same driver complement I used in my center channel, namely 4 each 5" drivers, 3" drivers and 5/8" tweeters. My thought on how to build this is with 3 individual cabinets...
