Guys quick REW question, I use the camera (caption) to save my graphs into documents, how do you save your graphs in REW, when I hit the save icon it becomes a mdat file and wants to put it in documents. Is there a folder in REW to save your graphs so you can go back to them and compare and overlay other FR sweeps? Thanks and sorry for the simple questions.
Cheers Jeff

My old space, that was 25x29x8 ft would have asked for bigger guns( S3000) , but I think I will be good with the "small" stuff.
Have you talked at all with PSA? I think that in your sealed (?) 13x15x7.5 room, either dual xs15se or S1500 will be just fine. At one point, when Tom thought my room was sealed, he was recommending those options as well.

Yes, I have chatted with Tom, he mentioned that as well, S1500 or xs15, leaving the option for XS30se if I want to go really loud.

Click the save all measurements and browse to a location on your computer or Dropbox (create a REW folder), give it a name to save it there. I store my graphs on Dropbox so I can access them anywhere.

Sold for $141.50. That puts me $7.50 over budget. Glad I went with my gut and ordered the S1500.

Note that after seeing the graph of the XS30se vs. the S3000i that I'm confident that for the BASH amp models, I would have ended up going ported in my room.
Good call, you guys are right. Someday perhaps I will be able to try out the S3000i for myself. These PSA products are an addiction and I don't know the cure. Except to buy more.

After seeing the chart comparing XS30se vs S3000i, I have to admit I'm somewhat tempted to trade up to the S3000i before my 30 days are up. However that is still a fairly substantial price increase, especially for duals. I just don't know how noticeable it would be. I'm pretty sure comparing ONE of each would be noticeable, but what about TWO? Wouldn't I have to be hitting the limits of the XS30se before I would notice an improvement from the S3000i?

Also, I should have been more clear....we won't be posting any data on the V3600 proto-type until we are confident on the final form.

This graph shows roughly a 3dB difference below 30Hz while the numbers listed on the product description on the website shows only 1dB difference. I'm confused

OK so I just looked at the long term compression charts for both and that is where it's showing a 3dB difference. I guess I just need to hear from Tom if it is worth going from dual XS30se's to dual S3000i's.
