  1. REW Newbie Getting a popping during Measuring Sweet

    REW Forum
    I have a UMC-200, UMIK-1 and a mac I am using to try to eq my system. As it is doing a sweep for measuring I am getting a popping sound. What am I doing wrong. How do I get rid of that to get a good measurement? I have the mode set to direct and the eq set to flat on the UMC when I am doing...

  6. Can't find a sweet spot modeling drivers for LLT

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am working on modeling some subs with the intent of building a 24" Sonotube LLT with a 15" driver. I have looked at Dayton, Bravox (on buyout right now at Parts-Express.com), Soundsplinter, etc. I think I have settled on the Dayton Ultimax UM15-22, about 300L volume and a tune around 18hz. At...
  7. The sick sweet spot of synergy horns

    Home Audio Speakers
    The video following, is a lot bigger than anything we'd use in our homes, but I think the concepts can be carried over to the lesser "home size" synergy horn speakers. Get out your headphones and watch this video: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=2225928221801
  8. 427-2 sweet surrender interior flat enamel

    DIY Screens
    My wife went out and purchased the ingredients for Black Widow and the guy said they don't do Bermuda beige anymore, that is is not called sweet surrender. The color didn't look too beige on the top of the can, and this being my first BW screen, I wanted to check and see if anyone else had come...
  9. Sweet room problems

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Alrighty, so here's the deal: I've got a pretty serious 8db peak in the high bass region that drives me crazy because it gets hit in almost every song. I've treated the walls at reflections etc with 4" panels yet the boominess remains. Would wide-range bass absorption like tube traps in the...
  10. What would you prefer? Good average or perfect sweet spot?

    REW Forum
    I have been playing around with sub postioning and eq'ing. If I place the sub in the front of the room, I can get an almost perfect +-2 dB response all the way down to 18hz, but only with rather big eq cuts. The only problem is that in seats 2 or 3, the response kinda sucks. Because of eq...
  11. Which speakers to maximize sweet spot?

    Home Audio Speakers
    My wife and I are currently planning a major home remodel with a structured wiring installation being part of those plans. I'm in the process of educating myself on home theater and speaker placement so that I don't spend money on gear that is a poor fit for my room and my priorities. I...
  12. Does a sub driver have a sweet spot?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi there, I was looking at the drivers in my IB last night, and I noticed that they actually don't use much of their lowly available 12mm XMax, even at a kind-of loud volume. As some of you know, I'm using four of the Mach5 MJ-18 drivers. I started me thinking -- is more always better? That...
  13. Is $2000 the sweet spot for a projector?

    Home Theater Projectors
    I guess my question is what can $1000 get you? Am I wasting my money at that price point? What are some of the key features and qualities I can expect between the two? Thanks Greg
