Unlike your w1070 SM, in the w7000 we can watch the multiplier change dynamically in the menu. If you want to continue to drag this out and proclaim yourself as an expert, I can bring other people in here to confirm the way MOST color wheels work, and many people just from the w7000 thread can also confirm what I have posted. I can also provide screenshots of the service menu, if you so need them. Zombie10k knows this too and can hear it as well, and I'm sure he will be glad to post, it's obvious.
Despite all this, I am still giving YOU
the benefit of the doubt that you guys may be right about the w1070's color wheel. Only because since I don't have a w1070 on me at the moment, I cannot prove anything about the w1070 (and I cannot be sure anyhow), but I am just saying don't be so quick to throw facts in the trash.What part of Service Menu CW multiplier do you not understand?
I have confirmed how the w7000 wheel works by the service menu setting, reviewers, a whitepaper, by sight, and by hearing / ears. Your rebuttal is completely silly, I used every available method and EVERY single one is in agreement with the other.A whitepaper talks about how color wheel speeds generally work, which is that they are 10.8k RPM at 6x in 60hz,
and that this speed usually slows down to 9k rpm @ 50hz at 6x.THE above is ABSOLUTELY how the W7000's color wheel works, it follows the standard CW design,
so there is no need for debate on this point, and every owner of the w7000 can easily confirm this by matching up the service menu multiplier with the unusually loud sounds the CW makes in 6x mode.
There is no mention in any of the papers or threads I saw that HT color wheels are generally manufactured with 50hz @ 6x in mind first, and then slow down (fewer RPM) for 60hz, only the opposite is discussed. Furthermore, the w7000 is proven to be quieter in 50hz 3x mode (zero doubt, ask anyone in the w7000 thread to try it). This is not a small difference in sound, the difference is HUGE. Also. I'm not saying no projector has ever been made to where the 60hz mode uses slower RPM's than the 50hz mode, I am just saying from what I have seen, it is not the NORM for HT projectors.
Furthermore, it is very easy to HEAR the difference between 10.8k RPM and 9k or 7.2k RPM on the w7000, but it is MUCH MUCH
more difficult to hear the difference between 9k RPM and 7.2k RPM. 10.8K RPM sounds like a vacuum cleaner, which is why by default the w7000 ships at the 4x speed (2x multi), instead of the 6x speed (3x multi).
According to you guys, the w1070 color wheel motor is implemented backwards to how most color wheels are designed. It was backwards day when the w1070 was created. It's possible, but I just find it strange.
