  1. Manufactured Screens
    I have a 92" elite motorized screen with no complaints to screen quality (1.1 gain white). I have been looking to up grade to a 120" but I don't want to get another motorized because they are expensive and I never put it up anyway (dedicated theater room). The guy at projector people said that...

    I've run REW many times with great success but now every time I run it I get obviously bogus results. I'm using the RS meter with a soundblaster external sound card as I have always done but now all of my FR charts look like rolling hills. I have attached a plot that shows my sub measurments...

    We (that is, the wife and I) have been contemplating upsizing the display in our main living room/home theater from a 50" rear projection to something bigger given our seating distance (the display comes from a previous apartment install in which we were around eight or so feet away from the...

    Hi...I am attempting to redo my SW measurements. Of course, I can't get the graphs to show up as they did the last time-in fact, it doesn't even look like a measurement of my SW. Can anyone tell me from the pic what I have done wrong and how to fix it? Bob
  5. Home Theater Projectors
    Years ago I got an Optoma 719 for movies and computer use and I was really happy with it. Eventually prices on 1080p HDTV's went down and since then I have been using that as my primary desktop output. HD projectors are now below the $1k mark and I thought this was a good time to get back in. I...

    I have an NHT crossover that seems to be stuck at one frequency all the adjustments seems whack, Is there an easy way to find the defective component with a multimeter?

    Alright, just wanted to run some tests with REW before my sub gets in later this week. So, I calibrate the sound card which already gave me trouble. I had a hard time adjusting the output and input so that I didnt get clipping issues. Basically had to have the input almost off. (I am using a...

    I attempted to plot the response of three different subs. REW output connected to the CD input on receiver. Sub - Yes. Mains - Large. (Mains disconnected.) My room is quite large, but the lack of bass below 35hz seems rather exaggerated. I'm hoping I have made an error in the setup...

    Hey, here I'm showing a few graphs, I'm not sure if I am doing this right. The hardware list is the ECM8000 (with cal loaded) Xenex802 and the turtle beach external soundcard. *note: I did set the graphs to the "standard" setup but it does not cut the graph off, I guess all it does is zoom...

    I'm read the documention several times, and have taken many measurements. I'm using the RS meter, set to C weighting. I get a plausible response curve down to 20 Hz, but then the curve becomes RULER flat down to 2 Hz! That can't be right. Also, when I check the "C weighting" box, the curve...

    I dont understand why as I set my sweeps to start at a lower frequency the db's start high and lower. Should it start lower then go high. I finaly calibrated the sound card and my spl meter so Im not sure what the problem is. Sean

    Folks, I've done a few sessions since finally figuring out how to make it all work, and setup had been smooth and easy. But yesterday, when I plugged everything in and made sure the .cal files were loaded, and USB Sound, Line-in, and Speaker chosen, all my soundcard levels were at 0.00. I...
