If your soundcard calibration routine executed properly and you were able to take a measure from 0-20K of the loopback cable and it returned a flat line, then it's good.Can someone tell me if this looks correct?
You'll have to tell us what we're looking at first.Can someone tell me there thoughts on what I have here.
A BFD is a parametric equalizer placed between the receiver and subwoofer. It has nothing to do with testing speakers.My next question is going to be how can I test each of my speakers and do I need to buy the BFD to do that?
Well, it’s not bad really. Your sub has great extension down to at least 20 Hz (you might want to extend the graph limits out to 10 Hz to see how low it really goes). Response between 90-20 Hz is in an 8 dB window. That’s unusually good for unequalized response. A BFD could make a noticeable improvement, but probably not a drastic improvement. The best improvement you’d probably get with it would be dialing in a house curve, if you feel you need one.Can someone tell me there thoughts on what I have here.
Google “behringer feedback destroyer” and you’ll get plenty of hits.Where do you buy the BFD online?
Turn down your line-in level to REW.I tried several things but it still clips at the end. The headroom goes red and 0.0 db. Any help with level adjustments would be great.
All speakers? When we test with REW, it's either sub only (with the mains disconnected), or sub plus mains (always with the receiver in two channel stereo only with no soundfields enabled).The test was done with all speakers stereo
Yes, but in stereo, only the two mains will be engaged - disconnect them.also do I have to unhook each speakers that I dont want to test from my receiver?
Yes, but to what end? You will not have the crossover/base management from the reciever that will be present when your system is used normally.Can I just hook the computer to the sub directly and bypass the receiver
When you execute the Check Levels routine in the Settings screen, you set the sweep level to -12db, and then your receivers volume control is set to get 75dBSPL on the SPL meter at the listening position. Then the input level is set to get about -12dB on the REW SPL VU meter using the Input Volume control (that's the line-in level).Where is the line in level located in the rew. I have just been turning down the speaker output on the computer? When I do this it effects my SPL Meter and it know longer is reading at 75 db. Is this correct?
Test from 0Hz - not 20Hz in the Measure screen.Please let me know what you think?
Ahh, OK... I'm not a Mac guy......Also the audio midi properties is where I can control the macbook line in.
Yeah, your plots look fine. There is some debate about how to use Audessy with a BFD, but in my opinion the best results appear to be from running the Audessy first, and then cleaning it up with a BFD....This is the same test but with the audessy EQ
No, not really. The 1124 had a bad firmware program at one point, but that's long been fixed. It acts the same as the 2496 in that regard.it will work better with midi connection than the 1124. This is correct?
I don't know what pulling up means?I am trying to download the .cal file for my RS meter but the files aren't pulling up for download. Any thoughts?
