  2. System Setup and Connection
    Just moved into a new house with in-wall speakers. I'm having a weird problem where I can only get sound out of 2 of the 4 wall speakers at one time - and only if all 4 speakers are plugged into the receiver. If just the 2 rear speakers are plugged in, they don't work. If just the 2 front...

  4. REW Forum
    Hello, denizens of Home Theater Shack. I am totally confounded as I try to make Saffire MixControl work with REW. I'm aware that calibrating the sound card isn't too important. Still, I'd like to learn how to do it, so that I know more about the MixControl software. I need to create a loopback...
  5. REW Forum
    If this issue has been raised before, I couldn't find it. Please point me in the right direction if it has. My bottom-line question: "Is it possible to use REW in ASIO/HDMI mode with a preamp/mic instead of a USB mic? I'm now able to send test signals to each speaker without switching cables...
  6. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I'm interested in Yamaha's new YST subs and their NS subs which are better (YST technology, Twisted Flared Port, and square wire voice coils)? Does anyone use them? I wish they'd get reviewed because they look nice to me. I like these two...
  7. Home Audio Acoustics
    I built some QRD N7 panels for my room and would rather cover them with black fabric to match my absorption panels. As long as I use a breathable fabric would this have alot of negative affects on the performance values? My "diffusion" range is 750hz - 4khz. How much of a negative would this...

    Irate off please excuse my full lack of knowledge on this one. So I have an SR-707, I have everything hooked via HDMI into receiver then into TV, lately I turn on the receiver and there is no sound. If I turn it on or off or wait a few minutes and do it I usually end turning back on with...
  9. Audio Processing
    Now that I have my Dirac Live Full w/ my XMC-1 I wanted to give some input. First of all. Review the chart to see the response. Since my X4000 is down I used a previous test however nothing has changed meaning I ran each in my room w/o treatments. Obviously the Audyssey is a base target...
  10. System Setup and Connection
    Hello again! As I'm sure you all know, loudspeaker placement can be of paramount importance when trying to optimize tonal balance, soundstage depth, imaging, clarity, etc. A great deal of thought, time, and effort was put in to positioning the components of our TARA Labs listening room. Some of...

  12. Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    $25-shipped for a 2-pack of Noctua 80mm fans. I went from 77dB to 50dB. I even forgot to add the inline resistors to slow the fans down. But there's no point. The amp is almost silent as-is. But I can still add the resistors if I feel the need w/o any cutting or soldering. I don't have my subs...
  13. Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    I built my first DIY sub. A Dayton 15" Ultimax (dual voice coil) I connected it in series. I believe this makes it 4 ohms correct. I connected the terminal ends to opposite ends of the woofer then connected a single wire from the other + to -. (Could I have just connected one side to the...
  14. REW Forum
    I got my UMM6 USB mic and set up REW today - got the mic from dayton so i hope it's ok since it hasn't been calibrated by cross spectrum. I level calibrated every speaker on my NR609 to 75db (the 2eq had them at about 73db. I did this with my subs also after turning off any EQ i had applied to...

  17. Home Audio Subwoofers
    I've read about all I can read on this subject. This is 80% HT 20% Music. Current sub is an old M & K V125 sealed sub. Decent but watching movies leaves me wondering what a pair of updated subs can do. Its a dedicated HT of 2000 cuft. MartinLogan Motion 12 L/R with a Zaph Audio Center...

I tried everything and cannot get a picture on my TV (I've had the TV working fine for a couple months since I purchased it). This is...
