"OMFG, Krypto is getting a mic finally!" - Page 16

post #451 of 464
Thread Starter 
I am literally getting ready to board up a window in the HT, I'd like to run a sweep before and after. Whenever I dont use REW for a while it seems I have the same issue but I never recall what I had to do to fix it.

My feeling is that completely sealed up I have issues, but completely opened up as well. I think if I close the door I just built all the way and leave the bedroom door slightly open, things will breath yet still load. Vice Verse, if I seal the spare room door all the way but leave the entryway door partiallt open or the outside door, i will have better results. I just ran a sweep with the front and back doors open...the outside doors.. and I think I may have heard a coil brush a back plate, IDK though usually I can run at -10dB and get that, I am at -15dB right now.

I'm going to go mach up the two boards to see where I need to cut the second one, then seal the spare room and entryway door and hope by then I can get this fixed, I'll run a sweep, then screw the boards in and run another sweep. I think with the spare room and entry way sealed up the window being sealed up will have an effect, but right now with both doors open I dont think it would do much.

something's way off. I was going to just do them messed up thinking it would still show before/after just uncalibrated, but this is too messed up.

You're not getting input from your mic or have it set to the wrong channel or the input level is too low or you plugged it in after rew started.

Why you're destroying your house, I still don't understand.

That is just noise. Nothing meaningful there.

What notnyt said - something is wired up wrong.

in and out were changed back to default for some reason in rew but the mic calibration file was still in there and C weighted was still checked.

When I reopened it it gave me a pop up to recalibrate, I have the door propped up so I have to walk around the house to get from the PC room to the HT room so I am waiting for Austin to get here so he can tell me "when" the needle is at -3dB on the mic with it set to 120dB. Thats assuming sealing it up didnt change the average SPL. I havent hubg the track to hang the door yet so I have to scoot that bastard by feet and arms. It's heavy.

people give me crap for using all red power wire in my van, grounds too. wire is wire as long as you pay attention.

as long as you pay attention. when I first hooked RCA to RCA to RCA I hooked red and yellow, not red and white. When I grabbed the wires out today I thought "nah Ill do them right" and unplugged one end and plugged one in right



thanks guys

all that work only to double SPL and flatten another 3dB... not
