Thank you. I actually had no idea there was such a thing. As it happens, I found a fantastic one:

 

http://sourceforge.net/projects/equalizerapo/

Documentation here: http://sourceforge.net/p/equalizerapo/wiki/Documentation/

It still requires familiarity with REW (so BeeMan will be happy!), so it's not for everyone.

But it's free, so it's for me!

Is it better than REW? That's what I've been wanting to use... wink.gif

Thanks! I just grabbed a pair. Had to use two different email addresses because you can only use the promo once, and I decided to get a second one a few hours later.

Things like your above recommendation make me sad......because without something like miniDSP to use for integrating the filters with REW, I'm SOL.

...frown.gif...now I'm sad.

So the minidsp will do balanced output with a low gain filter and will do a better job of eq with a measurement file?

It looks like a tool to take target EQ curves generated by REW and apply it to all soundcard output (something that's not handled by REW and a total can of worms to implement). So it's not a replacement for REW, more like an alternative to Electri-Q and VST hosts.

Didn't you get an 1124P (which I use for my subs)?

What's an 1124P?

Using Google, is an 1124P a BFD?

Presuming an 1124P is a BFD, isn't the miniDSP with module the less expensive, more flexible route to take for a multiple subwoofer based sound system? We have three subwoofers.

Using Audyssey and DSPeaker, Anti-Mode, 8033S II, we have some serious issues but if taking Audyssey out of the graph with only Anti-Mode in the sonic chain, we have minor issues.

Thanks. I've always read it referred to as a BFD and haven't seen it referred to as an 1124P as I know this sounds lame (excuse), but even in my linked post, it's referred to as a DSP1124P.

D'oh! I guess that'll teach me to ask. tongue.gif

So the miniDSP with balanced has balanced inputs (2), and 4 balanced outputs for 2 mains and 2 subs? Am I missing anything?

Right. The miniDSP is more expensive, but much easier. The BFD (which, while I was growing up, meant "big f*g deal," which is probably why I don't use that moniker), is two channels and needs to be programmed manually with readings from REW.

Of course, you could get two.

okay, i already place my dual sub, 1st right side corner of the wall, and 2nd left corner wall side of the couch.

how are we gonna know if they are producing the right bass? it should be punch sound? tight sound? boomy sound? how do we distinguished the right or correct sound of the subwoofer bass?

My avr doesn't work in hundredths, just .5 increments. smile.gif How much you bump is entirely personal preference...they're your ears.

I just ordered one as well.

I have chronic upgraditis though... I haven't had the opportunity to really use my new system at the current house I'm in but we're under contract on a new place so I'll take the time to make sure I use it. Denon 1712, Polk Monitor 60 IIs, CS1 center.

I've already started looking at surrounds but my wife is going to kill me about the sub already. :-D

Something like this can be used to program the BFD via REW.

Saves a ton of time.

Takes me 5 seconds to program each channel. NBD.

It's not like I need to do it every week.

But for those who NEED another cable,...

I didn't even glue mine. Simply reach in the whole, thru the port tube as far as you can and pull it back into place. It has a lip it will seat into.

I'm looking hard at picking up this sub to go in my basement, that's currently being finished. The room is kind of an odd shape, so I attached a picture that isn't to scale, but shows the general shape and layout. The left side is a 15 foot wall, up againt the foundation of the house. The bottom is a 22ft wall, again against the house foundation. The bottom right vertical line is the open doorway to our basement stairs. There is a door at the top of the stairs, but not the bottom The horizontal line on the bottom right, across from the long wall is a closed door to a storage room. From there it's an angled wall. The vertical wall is 12ft from the 15 ft wall. The red at the top is an open hallway. Will this sub be ok handling this amount of space? Also, the speakers I'm pairing it with are Phase Tech Teatros. I have the 7.5 floorstanders for the fronts, a 6.5 for the center, and the 4.5 bookshelves for the rear. So along with being enough for the space, should it match well with the speakers?

Thanks.

Let's say:
12' x 15' = 180 sq.ft.
10' x ~8' = 80 sq.ft.

260 sq.ft. x ~7.5' = 1,950 cu.ft.

The RW-12d should do a decent job in that space. (There's a door at the top of the stairs - good. How big is the entrance to the "red hallway"?)

IMO, and YMMV. smile.gif
