  2. Why do I have to turn my receiver so high to hear them?

    Home Audio Speakers
    First. I do not have bad hearing. I don't have wood floors. There are openings to the room. It's a living room, but it's not a giant house with all the open floor plan stuff. I hope that makes sense. Ok. It's primarily when it is Pro Logic. Doesn't matter if it's TV or a DVD. I also am...

    I hear too much side-content/reverb and panned information that while listening to stereo mixes is quiet in comparison. Good stuff happens when I turn down the surrounds, but I still sometimes A/B it with the stereo mix and feel like I am missing the main content of the soundtrack. If need be I...

  13. My I'art JVC tv will not turn off properly.

    First, I bought it used. Second, I didn't get the original remote and had to buy a universal remote. Third, it worked perfectly for the first couple of months. Then, out of the blue, it would no longer turn off with just a simple push of the remote control off button or the tv power button. To...

  16. Help me understand if/why to turn on how "Length" affects smoothing?

    REW Forum
    I'm measuring a single speaker/position right now and, when I'm at the "Make a measurement" popup (REW 5), it asks for the Length. Does this in any way affect what my smoothing settings will/should be? I haven't seen anything about it in the help docs so I'm assuming the answer to be "No!" but...

  18. Which Do I Turn Off First?

    Home Audio Speakers
    Hello. I'm almost sure that, before turning on my HP 30-watt 2.1 Speaker System, I turned on the device it was connected to, my Xbox 360. I thought that as long as the Xbox isn't letting out any sound, AND/OR the volume on the speaker is turned all the way down, then this isn't a problem, since...
