I tried in my upstairs bedroom that doesn't have any electronics in it. Just the laptop on battery power and I got the same 60hz spike. Does that mean the mic is faulty? I think it's done this ever...

I started thinking about this more and don't think it's a ground loop hum because I don't hear anything when no source is playing and it should be a pretty loud buzzing based on the graph. So I...

Didn't see this until now, I'll post this graph as soon as I can measure, hopefully in the morning.

Hey guys just doing some measuring today and I accidentally did a sweep with mute on and to my surprise saw a pretty big spike at 60hz which I've always thought was my room. I assume it has something...

I think if you used a program like REW or similar and had some sort of parametric EQ to flatten the response for each setup you would find bookshelfs and towers sound similar with the subs on. Most...

If you're going to be using a subwoofer for sure I personally think it's a good idea to audition speakers with an 80hz crossover in place but without a sub. My reasoning is that if you're never going...

Try lifting the mains higher, see if that helps. If it does then that's what you need to do.
BTW, with the 100Hz crossover your subs are producing a lot of above bandwidth content. I assume you're...

That tells me that the dip with the mains is probably sourced by floor or ceiling bounce, assuming the sub was placed identically to the main other than height off the floor. Put the main on the...

That's interesting but how does that explain that the subs don't have the same issue? Because of the proximity to the floor I assume?

I also took the left speaker off it's stand and ran the same sweep with it on the floor and the hump was gone as well, although with a different dip around 200. There is 16 inches from the back face...

While this is true it's also true that unless you have a pretty bad subwoofer system, subs are always going to outperform towers below 80hz. You also have to remember that 99% of receivers only use a...
