  1. Weird Frequency Response Measurents

    REW Forum
    So I setup REW on my laptop and ran some measurements but am getting strange results. My frequency response has a very large upward tilt. See attached. Not sure where I'm going wrong. Tried 2 different speakers to make sure it wasnt a speaker issue. Using Radio Shack SPL meter for my mic...
  2. weird frequency anomaly

    Two Channel Audio
    I just had to move my hifi speakers, and they're now firing across the room instead of along it - seating position about 4 metres from speakers. Speakers are very close to the wall (~20cm) I ran some test tracks through it and all OK, except... the 4KHz test tone exhibits very strange...
  3. Weird Problem With Omnimic USB Mic and REW

    REW Forum
    Well, I was hoping my first post wouldn't be asking about a problem. I've had my omnimic usb mic for just under a year, and have been using REW for about 10 months with no issues. However, within the last week, it seems to have stopped working properly. Since I can't post pictures yet, I'll...

  8. Weird Dish issue

    System Setup and Connection
    I have an unusual issue and was needing some advice. For some reason when I turn on certain lights in my house my dish network receiver gives me the complete signal loss message like you get when it rains, turn the light off and it's fine again. I've tried everything I can think of, new cables...
  9. My Onkyo 605 Did Something Really, Really Weird Last Night...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Pulled out an old classic favorite off the DVD shelf last night, the original House of Wax with Vincent Price, and when the disc loaded and began to play the Warner Bros. intro screen, my Onkyo 605 didn't recognize the Dolby Digital signal coming from the DVD, thus there was no small orange...
  10. Weird scaling issues with JVC DLA-RS45U projector

    Home Theater Projectors
    Using the WOW calibration disc, I get strange bowing and ghosting images on the screen when running the scaling and advanced scaling tests. Im supposed to be seeing either a thatched pattern, vertical or horizontal lines, depending on the test. I see no patterns or lines at all. Even the 1 pixel...

  13. Phase response - looks weird

    REW Forum
    I would like to measure the phase of my system, and have hooked up a USB soundcard, made loopback connection etc (and checked this option in the settings). My measurements shows this phase response: I dont think it looks anything like other phase responses I've seen? Does it look right to you?

  15. My projector is weird !

    Home Theater Projectors
    Hi everyone, Just purchased an Optoma HD600X projector and my problem is this : the image projected on my wall is very high, the bottom edge of the image is like 50 centimeters above the 'altitude' of the projector lamp (the well is 3 meters far from the projector). So if I want the middle of...
  16. Weird bass effect, odd room.

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    First off, I want to state that I am actually using a Velodyne SMS-1 to do my subwoofer equalization, not REW. I figured this would probably be a good place to find good information on my issue. The SMS-1 uses a Behringer ECM8000 measurement mic and allows for equalization of a sub via the tv...

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Hey Gang, I have a question my sub has been making this noise it sounds like a sub that has been put in a trunk of a car and the trunk lid has that awful rattling noise when they don't use Dynamat for the lid. I was wondering if this is normal? Also I noticed that air is not coming out of the...

    Help me understand what's going on with my system. I have a Pioneer SC-05 receiver connected to the BFD which in turn is connected to a Dayton HPSA1000-R subwoofer amp. The amp is connected to an SVS CS20-39 sub. If I have the the operating level switch set to -10 dBV, the BFD clips with strong...
  19. Weird BFD LED problem

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    My BFD 1124p LEDs show two different input levels. I run dual SVS PB13s and use a split RCA cable out of the receiver. The right input level is always 2 levels below the left. It wasn't always this way so I thought the BFD had an issue and sent it for repairs. They sent me a new one, I know...
