Using REW before running Audyssey Multeq xt32
hey guys - hoping someone can provide some feedback here....I am trying out a new setup in my basement theater room/music room and want to optimize speaker placement without using audyssey as a first step. I am wondering if REW would be a good place to start by measuring my two front main speakers in different placements/toe in angles at the MLP and determining the best placement for them that way. THen I can hook up my dual svs subs and run audyssey xt32. after which I would obviously go back to REW to see the results.
I dont want to use audyssey first as i find it to be a PITA to keep running in my basement which has a high noise floor due to my hvac/furnace ran always running. its loud, inconsistent and hard to get a good result in my particular room. would i find REW to be just as difficult given this?
i want to simply take some measurements without a lot of setup involved involved to analyze different speaker positions.
any help is appreciated!! And ASAp as the wife is asleep but the it is getting late
