Since you were upsampling everything I assumed you weren't getting automatic sample rate switching and still needed to make a change in the SSL drivers. I also didn't see you mention that you were using a BNC cable for clocking. Maybe I made too many assumptions.

You are right - I didn't read your post correctly. Ah, so I could set the SSL for automatic sample rate switching - I will try this!
Thank you!

Lower cooling box in place, upper shell in place for fit check.
I'm now running tweets 3k+, midranges 250-3k, midbass 50-250, sub 0-110. Starting to sound very nice!

Installation completed!

Yesterday the Samsung ED75C arrived and I installed in on a MULTIBRACKETS M Universal Flexarm XL White Tilt 26-32" (7350022732285).

The 26-32" version was enough, because the the ED75C is VESA 400 and only weighs 28.8kg, which is extremely light for a 75" monitor.

The flexarm is 79cm and allows freeform placement from about 10cm from the wall to a good bit in front of the speakers + tilt & swivel. In this image it's placed in line with speaker fronts and tilted slightly downwards.

I still haven't been able to get REW to read sound input from the SSL for Analysis & Convolution so there is a good bit of of work left on sound optimization, but it already sounds great.

I watched Hobbit part I with the kids last night and it actually seemed better than the movie theaters ( I know I could be biased here...). Up close, the ED75C really fills your field of vision and the sound is incredibly good.

(For movie watching, we pulled the monitor out as much as possible)

Finally got REW to work with Jriver, but I haven't figured out Convolution yet. If I just export the impulse response as a WAV from REW and use that for Convolution, the results sound terrible. There must be steps missing here...
Anyway, this is what a Waterfall looks like for the system. The rollof for high frequencies is by design, at high sound pressures I like treble a bit dampened. With 5 high efficiency tweeters drivers driven by unfiltered 200W ROTEL power each, It's easy to reach overpowering treble pressures.

Anybody care to explain what I need to in REW do to create a file that can be used for convolution in Jriver?
