What are the RDL boxes you are talking about?
When you get a chance, posting some unsmoothed measurements would be nice. If you could do a close mic of the BMS coax alone without DSP that would be good too.
They were the RDL RU4MLD...between their gains and the amps, we just couldn't get things to level all the way out, and when we got them close they were all set so different to get there.
We actually used my laptop to program and Matt's to measure....I think he should have those to post, and probably has the raw BMS, no dsp too....Matt do you still have them??

Thanks Austin, I loved the impact, but the critic in me can't help but wonder why the dialogue in that scene was only so so...I know the action is the focus, but the dialogue was still a bit off. The effects where frighteningly real though

Regarding the Flac tracks that is all I usually download anymore. I always can hear the difference when I have any low quality MP3''s being played.
And Chop do you have a picture of your room yet? Render?
No break in what so ever for the woofers or the CDs...I'm sure that contributed, but we just didn't have time. The room is still being dug, I haven't even started the build thread yet....the damn ground being full of rock killed that timeline. I'll have renderings fairly soon, once I get the max size based on how much rock we can get out, and get Keith the measurements.

I still plan to rebuild nicer cabinets and do them with the Ultra Touch, but may pull the polyfil and use insulation in the test boxes for further tests just because I think it works a bit better. Thoughts??
