REW Noob with Dayton UM15-22
Sorry if this is posted in the wrong thread but I finally received my UMIK-1 and got started with using REW for the first time on my diy sub. I have read the pdf tutorial and the simplified rew for inuke but I still got some unanswered questions for you experts over here...
First things first, regarding the UMIK-1, do you guys put the foam filter on to take your reading or leave it off?
My setup is currently a Marantz SR9300 with a 5.1 setup (Paradigm Studio 60's v2 fronts, Studio 20's v2 rears , Studio CC v2 center, DIY Dayton UM15-22 on Inuke 1000DSP)
-NO EQ on the Inuke for now
Here is my first rew sweep with umik at MLP...what are your opinions on the results? Also, is it normal for my AVR to have to be at around -12 to get a desired SPL of 90db or does this seems high? Sub gain is at 0db in my avr, and the inuke front knob is to the max, and I get plenty of bass in movies, enough that red clip light flashes on inuke often.
What are my next steps? EQ out the highs and boost the 20hz region?
Thanks for your help!
