What I meant was that I used the same cal file for both orientations, and therefore the difference I saw was accurate. If I had used a different cal file for each, then they would not. That is the relevance.

Is there a question there? Did you look at the analysis here: Simplified REW Setup and Use (USB Mic & HDMI Connection) Including Measurement Techniques and How To Interpret Graphs

Asio set up issue

Jerry,
Thanks for the excellent guide. I am brand new to this REW thing, very cool by the way.
Asio is not outputting a generator signal, I have tried the trouble shooting tips in the quide. Have any other tricks I could try?
A Java set up works for me, I'm not smart enough to change speakers with it though.
Could you recommend any links / posts. I apologise in advance for any thing stupid or easy I missing.
US newby's gotta get annoying busting into some very interesting discussion on this form.

Hi Marv, thanks for the kind words. Regarding getting a stubborn ASIO driver to work properly, I don't have any suggestions other than what is in the Guide. Uninstall, re-install, re-boot, pray to the Gods. It is beta software, with little or no support. What is your laptop configuration--HDMI? Windows, and what version?

If the Java driver works, then you can be completely functional. The Guide explains how to select the left, right, left+right, and center speakers by simply altering the Y-cable connection to the AVR. Give it a try, and don't be reluctant to ask questions here.

HI Jerry,
I will do the re install ADIO thing next.
I am using a windows 7 and HDMI connection. Is it possible to run Java on an HDMI set up?

No, with the Java driver, you would use a 3.5mm stereo cable from the headphone output Jack into the front-panel AUX IN RCA jacks on the AVR. It is explained in the Guide.

Thanks Jerry, pretty much what I thought. Back to the drawing board then.

Semi-quick question for the REW experts:

I notice from reading on the mini-DSP site that REW has the ability to output an automatic equalization for the sub. Since I have a Yamaha receiver with an admittedly limited PEQ, could I not use the suggested adjustments made by REW to manually adjust my subwoofer EQ? Obviously I won't be able to export the settings and import them into the Yamaha PEQ, but I'm thinking I should be able to note the suggested settings and make them manually in the PEQ.

Thoughts?

Mike

Yes you can. Just use the generic EQ setting in REW. That what I do with the XMC-1 which has a robust PEQ.

I purchased a MiniDSP to experiment with the REW automated EQ capability. It actually works quite well, and is easy to learn. I encourage you to try it. If you are using REW to measure your system, we would be interested in seeing your before and after measurements here. Good luck!

Edit: I also use Audyssey XT32 to calibrate my four subs. After quite a bit of experimentation, I decided the best approach for using the MiniDSP was to apply correction after Audyssey, rather than before it. So, I took my post-calibration bass measurements and fed them to the REW EQ tool, and REW said no filters were created, i.e. no additional correction was required! That made me feel good, and I now have a MiniDSP sitting unused on the shelf.
