Sweet!! Let me know how that UMM-6 works out. Im curious to see how the measurements from the two different mics will turn out.

I snagged a calibrated one from cross spectrum to compare directly against my ECM8000.

Just got my UMM-6 yesterday. With HDMI support direct to the AVR I can say I am very happy to limit the hardware required for measuring.

Very cool guys!

Im still thinking of ordering up a new OM and seeing if the measured drop-off in my system stays the same. We'll see. smile.gif

Hold off on that until I get some measurements. I promise I will get them out as soon as I get the mic. Mine is also calibrated from SpecLabs smile.gif Should be good to 5hz.

would 2 of these 15's be better then the dayton 18's for small/mid sized sealed? maybe 3 feet per driver

I think 3 is a little small for an 18 IMO. You could squeeze 3.5 for an 18. I just built a cab for a 15 at 2.65ish net which worked really nicely.

goon,

here is a pair of dayton 18's in two different enclosures.

the smaller enclosure (yellow, 4 cubic feet for two drivers) starts with a steep rolloff and q=0.95.

with a single parametric on the corner of -3db, q=0.7, the net response rolls off just like a q=0.7 native enclosure (red, 9.5 cubic feet for two drivers).

the larger enclosure provides more efficiency (about 5-6 db across most of the curve).

i don't know how small enclosures can go before this "trick" no longer works.

a simple 12db/oct shelf filter could then be used to equalize the yellow to overlay the red perfectly.

however, since the cabinet is less efficient, it would take about 4x the power for the same spl.

I've been looking for some feedback on these. Seems like a great deal if it is actually good down to 5hz.

I have one of the minidsp mics coming too to check my SI build with. Both USB mics should be good, but the minidsp one is fully supported in REW.
post #1482 of 2212
The CSL calibrated USB Dayton is compatible with REW as well. Wouldn't that be a better choice since it measures a lot lower?
post #1483 of 2212
Is an ECM8000 a good mic to use with REW?
Thanks

They are both compatible in that they will work. The difference right now is that REW can make use of the sensitivity spec in the UMIK-1 calibration file, meaning calibrating the SPL with a meter is not necessary. I suspect it is only a matter of time before we see the same thing with the UMM-6*. The cal file provided by Dayton contains the sensitivity spec. Herb's (CSL) cal files do not, but it the freq. response from CSL could be merged with the sensitivity data from Dayton into a single text file. More on that.

The trick is for the REQ author to make a change in the program. I spent half the day yesterday trying to get REW to think my UMM-6 was a UMIK-1, but I got nowhere. I fiddled with my registry and got windows to think my mic was (named) a UMIK-1, but I couldn't outsmart REW.

I think a lot of people use that mic with REW.

There's a President's Day sale at Musician's Friend that will get me to buy an iNuke 3000 for my spring Stereo Integrity 18 build. It's almost the same price as an iNuke 1000.

 

I bought the 4 ohm version without fully researching the implications. I wonder if I should change my order to the D2? I imagine sometime in the future I'll want to build a second for more headroom and to dig deeper.

post #1486 of 2212
is the president's sale another instance where the coupon code doesn't apply to behringer amps?

Bah, yes, sorry. I can see this isn't your first Musician'sFriend Behringer rodeo. :)

Hey guys, I'm thinking of running my Cerwin Vega CV500 amp in the laundry room instead of on the component rack so I don't hear it. If I leave it on all the time is there a way to see how much that would cost me per month, year, or whatever? I'll probably just go in and turn it off and on every time but I'm curious.

How bad is the noise? I'm going to have to have mine about 4-5ft away in an Omnimount re27 equipment rack.

I have zero option to have my amps in another room. frown.gif

You are DEFINITELY going to want to fan mod. I embark on my LG fan mod Monday, since I will be AVR-less for a week (Booooo) If you read what I have coming in though, it is worth it biggrin.gif
post #1492 of 2212

Carp, it pulls about 100W at idle IIRC, so you can figure with that number.

You do NOT need a T-blade adapter. The female plug on thr cable is a 20 amp style plug male plug is a standard NEMA 5-15 plug, which was a little odd to me, but yeah...

Oh snap! Did you get that Marantz like you were wanting? biggrin.gif

Yeah... I'm pretty sure I'll need to mod the fans. I'll have FIVE ep2500/4000's running along with the CV5000. Thankfully I have modded the EP's before and have about six or seven extra silent fans ready to install. I have no idea what kind of fan the CV5k needs though. Ugh and I have three Samson amps going too. Argh! So many amps! tongue.gif
post #1494 of 2212
8801 is headed my way Monday smile.gif I might actually pull the dang 3311 back out and use it just so I have something all week smile.gif A whole week without my main music hub is going to KILL me!!

I think the fan in the crown is a single big one front and back, maybe 120mm? dunno, but they seem to be pretty accessible. The Crown5000 sounded like a vacuum cleaner
post #1495 of 2212
Oye! I'll see if it's an easy fix. Unless anyone here knows for sure which fan to get for that amp? redface.gif

Dude!!! You lucky SOB. I would sooooo take that pre/pro! XLR outs for 11.2. Argh! I wish I made more money. frown.gif I'm going to watch out for the Onkyo equivalent pre/pro to the current xx10 series.
post #1496 of 2212
Thanks for the links and info.

Mrsmithers already modded mine (bought it from him) and it's still pretty loud, 70 db's with the radio shack meter right up to it. Too loud to go in my rack I think.

There are 2 fans in it.
post #1497 of 2212
BTW, it was 3 db louder before the mod.

Hell yes, especially since the 4311 has gremlins in it, or at least the 2 units did that David had at his recent Iowa GTG.
