When I try to do that step, it says your mic is already calibrated, you dont need to do this, so I end up running sweeps and have no idea what to set the main volume on my Onkyo at while running them.

Assuming you're using REW that message means you have a calibration file in the preference section under mic/meter tab.

What mic do you have?

To get the spl set properly in your case go to the preference screen on the first page at the bottom there is a section - see picture. Once you click next the noise will start, open up the REW spl meter and adjust your volume so the on screen meter reads 80. Close the spl meter window and the tones will stop. Done.

I really like fighting movie like Ip Man or The Raid but you can't forget about the scary stuff. I haven't found anything scary yet and that's what I want to experience with the home theater. All this crap that comes out isn't ever scary like the old days.

Gotcha... Dark Knight Rises is up next. I need to watch all three. I got lost. Like the crazy guy in the first one, I thought he was the joker, but then in the 2nd one you him briefly and it's obvious he isn't the joker. Didn't really ever figure out who he was....

My favorite movies are like HEAT, Goodfellows, The Departed, etc.... newest to that list is The Town. Love it.

It's so funny because I like movies so much then when I moved here to wyoming I found out there's no good theaters then I was like, you know what, I'm going to make my own setup. I got an awesome tv and the whole 9 yards then the last thing was the audio. I had no idea it got this complicated, holy crap! I'd start buying speakers and receivers then return them to get something better until it got to where I was satisfied. Then the better the equipment I bought the more things I had to add now I can't even calibrate what I have lol. Revurb, resonance, room layout, speaker positioning, ect. Man I'm not even trying to figure it all out I'm just paying a pro eek.gif I found this place called Nordic sound, ima call them tomorrow and see how they work. I know one thing though, once you get your setup to blow you away in movies it makes it all worth it! I'm glad I'm almost finished, ima take a break and enjoy what I have, but next year, well that's another story cool.gif I prob will start from scratch after I buy a house (I'm renting rite now) and the next time ill just go all out by hiring a company to do everything.

I have the Mini-DSP usb Mic, it came with a calibration text file also. I will try that tonight when I get home from work. Thanks!

Well I'm not sure how many pros are familiar with the Mini-DSP. I got a feeling the Mini-DSP was developed by and for the DIY community, not necessarily with the pros in mind.

There are three separate things here.
  • The MiniDSP 2x4 processor. This is general-purpose, and can be used for a variety of tasks, depending on the plugin you buy. It's great to EQ subs but it's not even the main use for the device -- it's actually more often used as a digital crossover. So no wonder you feel lost looking at the instruction PDF. You should read howto's specifically for EQing the sub with the MiniDSP.
  • EQing requires you take measurements. This can be done with a variety of mics and SPL meters, including the MiniDSP UMIK-1 microphone. This is a USB microphone that comes with an individual calibration file. It was also developed in collaboration with the REW developer, so that it integrates really well with it.
  • REW is a free software available from HomeTheatherShack, that allows taking frequency response measurements, analyze them, and also generate inverse filters to EQ the sub. It can talk to a good half-dozen DSPs including the BFD and the MiniDSP, so that the filter parameters generated by REW can be directly uploaded and used on the MiniDSP.

Reading a bit on each of those is required to get started, unless you choose a full-auto solution such as the Antimode.

So I called this place up "nordic sound" and it looks promising. They do detailed home audio calibration. The tech wrote down all my equipment, room size, layout, ect Just to start and general plan going and over the weekend he will go over specs of everything i have. Then he will email as much info regarding their cal service that would meet my needs. After i look it over ima call and schedule them to come over and calibrate, tweak, and go over everything. I will schedule them to come right after The Triax arrives that way everything will be there. Im a little relieved that ill have some expert help on this part so i can atleast feel assured that ill be getting the most out of what i have for the time being.

Besides money and the inclusion of the outside human element (things usually go South when another human enters the equation), what one should look to, is the future movement of the room's content and how this movement (speaker placement, furniture, seating placement) will impact a room's measurements.

Will have to tube it up as you suggest. Electrician won't do it as AF breakers are code for the area now.

Really? Code? For the entire house? Wow.....

Just make sure you shut the main switch off. It wouldn't hurt to go to home depot or Lowes and grab a current tester. Looks like a big yellow felt pen and emits a loud beep when it senses current. Kline made mine. Turn it on, test to make sure it works, then shut the power down and double check with the pen.

I had a close call with the 220v dryer circuit. Grabbed some copper to aluminum couplers with a pair of pliers. I turned off the wrong breaker. Pliers teeth went thought the tape as I was pulling the wire out of the box. Knee was on the ceramic tile floor, rubber on the plier handles. I have no idea how I avoided it, but I felt it in my knee at the tile. Flash so big the painter up the hall dropped the paint bucket in his hands.

Took me a year to go near anything electrical. Point is even though you think its off its best to double check. Good luck.

Tom and Jim are still waiting on a delayed update for the drivers, I think it has to do with the suppliers magnet stock, no clue as to when that will happen, I don't want to keep pestering them, but this the latest update that I am aware of.

Tom and Jim have explained this quite a few times. There is an issue getting the magnets for the new drivers. Everyone is aware that ordered the Triax's. The update was and is, when they get the drivers, hopefully by Aug 26th, the subs will be put together and shipped by September. I am pretty certain that when the drivers land, they will issue an update.

c'mon you can do it yourself...there is tutorials all over on how to calibrate a system. save yourself the coin and do it yourself that way you can taylor it to what sounds the best to you. Nothing worse than paying somebody to set up your system and not like the sound.

Yeah I have a house full of these SOBs. Make vacuuming a chore. I also have an old 27" trinotron Sony Tube CRT that trips a breaker 50% of the time when it's turned on. Wonder if I broke out cash what the electrician would say smile.gif Thanks for the warning, sounds like a scary experience!

Another problem you might think of is how this will affect your insurance should your house burn down......

Food for thought....

We just had a gas line installed for our barbecue. We were 2 ft. past the length where you don't need a permit. Five years ago I wouldn't have thought twice. I would have just done it without a permit. As I get older, and have had a couple dealings with ins. co. I think different.

Basshead I'd pay you if your available smile.gif I don't know it's just that I'm going over the basics and it seems logical and straightforward. Now as far as the technical side of ht goes, we'll I've drop in some of the threads and holy crap! The debating that goes on ( which by the way is entertainment and interesting ) just seems to go way past what I can realistically can learn being that my job doesn't give me the time to research what I'd like nor to spend hours calibrating and tweaking all the areas that are needed, although it looks fun. I usually post here from my phone being that in the oil field you work 80-100 hours a week. So I'm just getting to the point that maybe ill just have someone calibrate everything that way I can watch and ask questions for this first setup I have. By the time I plan a real ht setup ill learn as much as I can and be more independent with the 2nd setup. How in the world do you learn all this, like some kind of class or did you research and learn it on your own?

There are also a lot of tutorials out there explaining how to build your own subwoofers, yet you buy something that is already made wink.gif

yep and I have built my own subs in the past...however turn key is more appealing at the price point internet direct offers.

Lol biggrin.gif Honestly I'd like to know what you guys know, but it'll take time since I'm so new to the HT world. Actually I use to be into car audio before this but home audio to me seems so much more complex yet there are some similarities. I think having my brain trained on car audio recreation kinda confuses me sometimes with HT. Getting a car to sound good is easy and you have so much less space and issues to deal with. I haven't been into that anymore lately, HT is like a new hobby that seems fun. Well ima try my best to research when I can.

No worries my friend...If I was not a couple thousand miles away I would stop over and help ya for free. I was just trying to spark some motivation in ya, however I completely understand being your schedule. I got into home theatre back when I was 14yrs old which was 18yrs ago. Back then there was no avr calibration softwar, things were a bit more simplistic. I put a nice 5.1 bed room system together with my own money earned from doing chores and part time work. I actually built a couple subs back then as well. All of my family and friends came to me when they needed help with home or car audio. I did get more into car audio once I started driving up until I was 22 or so...then I kind of got out of it all completely up until the last couple years. Now I am back into it more than ever...so yea even tho I have only been a member since March, Home Theatre is definately not new to me. If you ever have a question feel free to PM me smile.gif

Back then there was no avr calibration softwar, things were a bit more simplistic. I put a nice 5.1 bed room system together with my own money earned from doing chores and part time work. I actually built a couple subs back then as well. All of my family and friends came to me when they needed help with home or car audio. I did get more into car audio once I started driving up until I was 22 or so...then I kind of got out of it all completely up until the last couple years. Now I am back into it more than ever...so yea even tho I have only been a member since March, Home Theatre is definately not new to me. If you ever have a question feel free to PM me smile.gif


Thanks bro! smile.gif honestly im glad theres pros like you here that can steer me in the rite directions. Im kinda new to where im living and I havent met anyone that has a clue about real HT setups eek.gif I got a house with my 2 younger bros that came with me to help run a new oil field facility. Im raising my lil sister (16) and I wanted to have a cool setup in my room so we could all hang out and watch movies/ xbox. Man now that I see other peoples setups here I really want to get into HT as a new hobby and maybe next year ill start a bad ass plan for an extreme setup. biggrin.gif

I appreciate the kind words however I do not think I am a pro by anymeans. Whenever you get some spare time, start doing some google searching on whatever you have questions about...90% of the time you will get great info. Between that and trial and error is how I have learned.

This hobby is addicting, especially when you see some of the insane setups around here....but it beats wasting money at the Bar. You and your brothers work hard, running a oil rig is no easy task. There will be nothing like coming home to a ice cold beer and a Triax. smile.gif
