  2. REW Forum
    Is it possible to use REW to plot the dBa level vs time? I am doing some preliminary testing that requires a graphical representation of spl over time. I use the CM-140 and Soundblaster Live. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  3. Home Audio Speakers
    I've been using two vertically arrayed centers, one above and one below my small (plasma) and large (projector) screens for some time now, after years of using a single standard horizontally arrayed monitor above or below. The voicing is dead center, and very clear and articulate. I notice that...
  4. REW Forum
    Hi all, I've got a feeling this is going to be one of my longer posts so please bare with me... ;) My situation is as follows: some time ago I built a massive 18" sub thx to the great help I got on the forum here. My intention was to place it in a dedicated HT room in our new house, but due to...
  5. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    My old Sony avr died on me recently so I have somewhat narrowed my replacement choices down to 2 similarly priced (on amazon) receivers, Yamaha 1900 and Marantz 7002. But is a little overwhelmed with the current features available. I currently do not need 3D and only need one HDMI for my oppo...
  6. Home Audio Acoustics
    Still in the planning stages of my HT, but I need to flesh out most of the design so I know exactly what sized space to leave in my basement for it when I build my house. (hopefully late summer/ early fall we can break ground) How important is following a set of ideal audio dimensions if you...
  7. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I need a comparison please. I am wondering how the shiva-x will compare to a def tech super cube 1? The shiva x will be in a 2.5 ft3 enclosure with a PR tuned to 20hz. The shiva x will be run with a 500 watt amp. I am guessing the shiva x will have more output down low but how else do they...
  8. Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    Hi all, I was wondering what the benefits are of different amplifier topologies? I recently borrowed a W-Audio DA-1300 power amp, and found it's sound quality a little rough compared to home audio amplifiers. I am not sure what class of amplification the W-Audio is, its 2x420w 8Ω, 2x 650w 4Ω...
  9. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    This one is for you Ryan. A few weeks back we had a conversation about that movie soundtrack. I thought that this would illustrate better what kind of sick bass is going on in the HT environment. This is a section of WOTW's where the highway gets blown up and it is the hottest bass section...

  12. SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I think I'm going to bite the bullet and probably get one of these: U-CONTROL UCA202 or U-PHONO UFO202. Before I click the "buy" button, I want to check with the veterans around hear (bruce ?) to see if there are any compatibility issues with *either* model as pertains to running them with REW...
  13. SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hi all - Quick question that I can't seem to answer from reading the help files. I am using the newer RS Analog meter for calibrating my sub and cannot figure out if I should be using a self-generated CAL file from my soundcard (created through a loopback connection from SPL meter to...
  14. SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I am getting the equipment to be able to use REW. I am in the process of acoustically treating my room and I want to be able to get before and after frequency response. In addition, I would like to be able to get the best position for my sub and calibrate my HT speaker levels. I have always done...
  15. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Ok Ok I know HTIB is not the way to go but?? Accesories for less has the HT-908 for 499$ comes with Part Number Breakdown TX-SR605 (Receiver) DV-SP405 (DVD Player) HTP-750 (Speaker Package) DS-A1X (iPod Dock) So it comes with a decent receiver DVD player and the onkyo speakers, seems...
  16. SVSound
    I own a SvS PB12+ right now and I m thinking of replacing it. Would a PC13-Ultra be a upgrade or downgrade? I ONLY use my subwoofer for Home Theater movies, NOT for stereo at all.
  17. Creative Sound Solutions
    I posted this over at another site and thought that it may be of interest here too. I decided to compare my pair of SDX 15's in an 8cu ft enclosure to a XXX 18 in my ghetto 10cu ft sealed test box since I already had the 18 in the same room trying to detemine my room gain. Nothing too serious...
  18. Home Audio Subwoofers
    I was wondering about SVS's 10inch subs. How do they compare to a 12 like the Klipsch rw-12d? I have also been looking into building my own sub...would it be better to construct my own? go with SVS? or stay with my Klipsch?...my budget is $600
  19. Creative Sound Solutions
    i am in the process of building a 3.5 ft3 sealed sub with a 1000 watt amp. This is strictly for movies. am I better off with the sdx15 or the 190v.2 in low output?
  20. Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Can somebody explain why the DEQ2496 is unable to do the job with REW? I have played with REW for a couple of days using the radio shack spl meter. Also tried some eq settings on the DCX2496(digital crossover) which I have in the system. The more I read and practice with REW the more I like it...
