    Hey Guys, I have a Denon 4520CI and a Klipsch 9.2 setup consisting of 2xRF-82 (Fronts), 1xRC-62 (Center), 2xRB-81 (Wides), 4xRS-52 (Surrounds), and 2x PSA XV-15 Subwoofers. For some time I've noticed that my center channel sounds strange. My wife kept telling me I was crazy, but I was certain...

    I have had some pretty serious discussions with various vendors about real power for an AVR. When a new customer looks at a receiver with 100 watts per channel for $400 and then sees another receiver advertising 75 watts per channel for $1000, both with similar connections and features, the...

    I'm attempting to calibrate the soundcard on my setup for the first time - I'm using a ECM8000 and a MXL Mic Mate as a pre-amp, connected by USB to my PC. Trouble is that when following the Soundcard calibration instructions, the result looks like this: Not exactly a great looking curve...

    Hey guys, first post, hoping somebody could point me in the right direction. I've read quite a few of the howto posts and followed the basic guides so forgive me if I missed something. My room has always been a bit of an acoustical nightmare, lots of hard surfaces, hardwood floors, and...

    I am trying to analyze my two subwoofers. I have tried to read as much as possible, but have reached the point of frustration. I am using a cheap spl meter, the SL-814, the chinese version. My receiver is onkyo 818, calibrated with audyssey, 2 sub setup. My computer is windows 8 integrated...

    I have been trying off and on for some time to run REW5 on my system and I keep getting the same problem. REW reports I am 30dB to low to run. It does not matter how much I turn the volume up I can't get above 30dB to low. I can turn down and eventually it gets lower I.e. 40dB to low etc. I...

    Hello. I got all my hardware for using REW, looked at several tutorials online, entered the mic calibration, did the soundcard calibration, SPL calibration, I think I've done everything I'm supposed to prior to measuring. Everything looked good. But then I measured and got a suspiciously good...

    I'm designing a 12" subwoofer and I have plans for a sealed downfiring design. However, downfiring subs don't seem to be liked very well. Is there a reason?

    I just purchased a used Pioneer SC25. I am upgrading from an older Yamaha RX-V795. My front speakers are Paradigm 11seMkiii towers. This old set up sounded amazing but I wanted to upgrade to get the newest DTS/Dolby decoding. Anyhow, so I set the SC25 up and it sounds very thin and tinny. Also...

    Hello, about one year ago I worked with REW and everything was perfect but now I can't even get the start right.... When I go to preferences and start to calibrate the soundcard the beginning is fine: sound level output around -6dB, I looped the right in/output, and I trimmed the soundcard so...

    For some reason I'm getting some cracking sound when watching movies at a high volume. I've run auto calibration with Yamaha. My speakers are the Def Tech promonitor 1000 Not sure if I have to recalibrate or not. It wasn't doing that at first. Any thoughts on possible issues?

    So, I am trying to put my newly acquired BFD 1124P into use, and I am having issues. Setup: RS SPL meter to audio in on PC; audio out to receiver aux in. REW sweep gives me a graph much like the Rocky Mountains to fix. Set up eq, transmit over MIDI to BFD. I can see the progress, and if I...

    ok, here is the setup that i understand should be correct marantz sr7000 reciever f/l preouts to numark mixer inputs and then the numark outputs to the behringer 2000 watt inputs and the same for the sub connected to a 1200 watt amp, the problem that i am having is that the volume is very low...

    Okay, so i'm on the first step of calibrating the levels for the loopback. I'm using a M-Audio Profire 2626. On the software mixer for the m-audio I can see the "mixer out" is correct at -12db. I can match the -12 db on the input loopback also with the gain on the preamp at about 1/4 of the way...

    Hi to everybody, I'm using REW for testing some earphones, when I try to estimate IR Delay ,REW calculate a value that is very different from three other software with which I compared the result (SIA Smaart live,Spectraplus,Arta). They all show the same delay time, except REW. Obviously this...
