REW (SB Live! 24-bit external)


I have a Creative 24 bit external soundcard but have been unable to calibrate it despite messing with all the various settings there was always some feedback. The only way I can get a normal looking curve was to use the internal card as output and the external card as input. This gave me a calibration curve similar to that for an internal card.
I then tried a sweep for the sub but it seems with limited success :scratch:
I've spent all day on this and achieving very little so far. Can anyone help?

Thanks again, John. I do have discreet inputs, but due to the electronics being in an entertainment center, they are almost impossible to get to. I will settle for the mains and sub for now. I may use the optical out just to take measurements.
You could always disconnect the speaker wire at you main speakers and connect it to your center/surrounds to take a measurement of these speakers. You receiver will use its bass management circuitry. Easier than getting in behind a cabinet and changing plugs.
