if I wanted to use rew to test for subwoofer compression at max spl...what would a possible way to use rew for that? in that past I always get errors in rew for headroom but Im thinking thats a mic error. I have windows 7 machine, umik 1 mic. can mic settings be adjusted from -18 to -3 in rew without jeopardizing results? anything else to consider? I want to test from 100db -130db from 10-200hz and yes will wear earplugs, but more concerned with setting up rew properly for such a test scenario using hdmi to marantz 7008 avr.
any ideas on doing this safely at my own risk of course?
