First off, thank you for putting together this in-depth video. I watched the first 30 minutes after watching #8
on gain-level matching. I did some searching for videos and posts for reference about 6 weeks ago on REW. This video is so much more comprehensive and helpful than what I was able to find.
I've attached the before, targeted, and corrected curve from ARC-Genesis to see what I'm currently working with.
Before I begin the task, I have a few questions. Please forgive me if these were answered in the forum and I’ve missed the answers to them.
1) Do I still need to level match my subs if they are identical? In video #8
at the 11:35 mark while talking about the hassle of moving speakers around you say, “Luckily mine are all identical subs,” and that they are running off the same processor, so you’re okay.
2) In REW, when you are doing the initial sweep to see what each sub’s room response is, are you moving the UMIK or the sub across the couch? You say your moving “it” as though it’s the sub. However, the time between sweeps leads and the fact that you’re trying to get different positioning leads me to believe you’re talking about the UMIK.
3) Is it okay to run the sweeps off to the side of my room just out of the direct path of the closest sub and FR speaker?
4) Since I’m only using REW to set up my subs, do I need to connect an HDMI or a USB cable to my receiver from my computer, or will I only have the following connections:
Receiver to MiniDSP to Subs
MiniDSP to Computer
UMIK-1 to Computer
Thank you in advance!
