  4. Full range target curves

    REW Forum
    Hi, I have been experimenting with full range equalisation with REW for a few days, and I'd like to discuss the topic of Target curves for a stereo 2.0 system. Strangely enough, I wasn't satisfied at all with the proposed target curve in REW, and I ended with a somewhat different one. I came to...
  5. Same target level setting for all channels ?

    REW Forum
    Sorry if this question has been already asked. I read the Rew help. I can change the target level suggested by Rew. I took my measurements of 5.1 channels with Umik and Rew, SPL was 75db for each ( sub also approx). Then I which to use the 10 filters of the Rotel RSX-1562 . ( 5 filters...

  7. How do I use target settings?

    REW Forum
    I'm having a lot of difficulty in understanding the Target Settings window in REW 5.0.in trying to equalise my sub and floor standing mains using a miniDSP with the ADV 2.1 plugin. I want to set the cutoff for the sub at 75Hz but what do the "LF Cutoff", "LF Rise Start", "HF Fall Start", etc...
  8. Target curve filter fine tuning advice

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Hello everyone. I've been getting the hang of REW and would like to get some critiques regarding my before and after EQ curves. My concern is the very narrow (0.200 BW OCT) 9db gain at 55hz to treat that null. Is that okay? I also have a very narrow and deep null at 270 hz, could this be an...
  9. EQ target settings rise start/end vs house curve?

    REW Forum
    Years ago when I last used REW I used a simple house curve: 20 Hz 8.0, 80 Hz 0.0. I see at some point it looks like new options were added in the target curve. Specifically LR rise/start/end. Can this be used in place of a house curve? Do they do similar things? If so when's it appropriate to...
  10. Warning: More than x% of values are above target curve

    REW Forum
    When working in the EQ window and creating filters I am often getting a warning from REW - something like "Warning: More than 77% of the measured values are above the target curve". What's confusing me is that REW is recommending that when I tell it to match response to target. So if that is a...

    We first started looking at Target after the TAVES show in Toronto last November but it just didn't work out. Now Bryston has taken over world wide distribution and we were surprised to see them at the Vancouver show on the weekend. There are 4 versions in 3 different heights in black and they...

  14. Custom Target Settings for EQ

    REW Forum
    Hi, first post here, though I'm trying to understand a bit better how to do the EQing. In the end I'd like to calibrate some headphones using the provided filters but fail to create a useful target curve. All this seems very much loudspeaker-centric. So, what if I wanted to have a flat curve...

  17. Help setting Target Level for REW Equalization

    REW Forum
    I've got a Behringer 1124p being delivered this Friday and I've been playing with the Equalization feature in REW to come up with a reasonable set of filters to apply. I'm unsure of what guidelines if any I need to take into consideration when setting the target level for the house curve. The...
  18. General question: Is it okay to set target level low?

    REW Forum
    In cases where dips are around 10-12db, is is acceptable to set target level low purposely? It seems easier to drop frequencies and extend Q rather than work with a +3db maximum gain. (pre-amp only has gain range of -12db to +3db, which is why I would drop my target level) Is it more...
