  1. REW Forum
    In reading about sound card calibration I see that we're supposed to loop the output to the input. The question is, is REW calibrating the INPUT or the OUTPUT? Furthermore, how can it possibly calibrate either based on this setup? If the output is garbage then there's no way to use that signal...
  2. Chat Box SWAMP
    I've said it before and I'm saying it AGAIN!!!..I HATE SONY RECEIVERS :rant: This is the 3rd Sony receiver I've owned that just automatically goes into standby mode or slams off!! I have had this one for awhile, as a back up for watching dvd's on my little bedroom set up, now when I try to hook...
  3. DIY Speakers
    This is probably super basic for you guys but i'm finding a lot of conflicting info out there. What should I use to get the volume of an enclosure based on the Fs, Qts and Vas? The online calculators give me wildly different results and i usually end up doing it by hand from the Weems book...
  4. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Well I am going to be building a large subwoofer or two pretty soon once my funding is complete. Anyway, I am looking at building a RE Audio XXX 18" Sub, or a Maelstrom 18" or 21" in a large over 8cu ft ported enclosure. A) Does anyone know where or when I would be able to get a Maelstrom 18"...
  5. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi all! After years of having to live with an old surround system, I am finally spending a little cash to upgrade. I have a pair of P362's on the way along with a matched center channel. But for fun, I have decided to build my own sub. It will be in a room appx. 25x12x8 for 80%HT, 20% music...
  6. System Setup and Connection
    I want to set up a large flatscreen and sound system, but I have no way to run wires to back surround speakers. I really don't have a place to put wireless speakers, or run power to them if I did. Is there a problem with using high end towers for front speakers and a high end center speaker? I...
  7. Home Theater Projectors
    I have an Epson 6100, PS3 and an Onkyo 705, 16:9 8ft wide screen. I have looked and looked for how to adjust the PJ so it doesn't show those horrible wide side bars when I play a "full screen" movie. I think there should be options from which to choose, right? It would be nice to have one set...
  8. Home Theater Projectors
    Just curious if you had $3000 and a controlled room to view in with centered ceiling mount what would you look into? My fathers new home has a dealer right down the road and he offered a Planar DLP 7130 model that is 720P DVI for $3000 which IMO is insane and bodering on insulting so looks like...
  9. System Setup and Connection
    Ok, so in my previous HT rig that was in my basement (currently fighting flooding problems), I had my DENON (wow, nice to be able to actually type that out ;)), DVD 2900 hooked up to my 55" Mitts RPTV via component video cable. I ran analog audio from the DVDP into my DENON AVR-3802. So, every...

  11. SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hello This calibration stuff isn't going in to my head with the greatest of ease, so may I ask a dumb question. Ive downloaded the 1/6 tones from the Download area, burnt them to a disk and using the supplied excel spreadsheet have plotted a little graph ... in fact you can see it below, But...
  12. Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Okay, I got my 1124D BFD working but I have one question. What is the in/out button used for? I followed the guide to make it blink for setting the input level but what does hitting it once do?
  13. System Setup and Connection
    Hope I can explain this in such a way that it makes sense. I have recently bought a power amp for my mains. My problem is that it dos not have a remote or a remote sensor and so it needs to be switched on manually. I am using a Harmony remote to control all my gear and switch on different...
