I have a newbie question about Room Simulator.:dumbcrazy:
As the name implies Its simulates A room of these basic Dimensions and Wall treatments. Yes ?
And Listening Position. And Sub with Crossover info. I guess We can use it to find the perfect location (theoretical) Of the sweet spot and Sub Position. Or am I just fantasizing. Too bad I can Put my sub in the ceiling It seem to give the flattest Curve(or lack of curve. Am I using it incorrectly?
And Unfortunately my room is not a box. Not even Square Like a small Square in side a big square. But its a fun tool to play around with .

I wish there was option to simulate dipole speakers. It seems possible by placing two speakers in same location but facing opposite directions. The problem is that moving them around is bit tricky..
It would be more useful if I could simulate an assymetrical room.
Not to speak on behalf of John M., but I believe that the mathematical complexity of anything beyond a rectangular room is too complicated to implement. I seem to remember reading that there isn't a closed form solution in existence for irregularly shaped rooms, which would make programming one into REW a little more than difficult... Considering it's a free software and it simulates rectangular rooms with relative accuracy, it's a pretty good bargain

Yes, that's exactly what it's for. It is still in a beta form but many have tested and agree that it can predict most major room effects.
accurate Bargin @ that

I love this thing(REW). When I was working ( laidoff last Friday:yikes I had access to the TEF/RTA made by Sencore called Terra Sounde.Hand held test equipment.
I EQd my control room. Set up bass traps and wall treatment etc.. Anyway. I just didn't get around to Doing a Final analysis, Waterfall, etc. Now with this tool. I actually see the correction done. compared It to what my EQ is setup to and I'm amazed. Last I remember I kept having trouble with 120HZ.never did get it out of the room. And I see with this Tool there's my bump. Awesome. Love it.

Playing around with the Simulator.( Moving things around like an etcha sketch trying to get a flat line) I see that if I were to put the Sub right above my head I get the best response on the curve almost flat. That's what I was wondering about. :heehee:
