Here's an example of a curved baffle wall from Nyal:

If the magic of a good stereo involves room reflections off the front and side walls, there's little chance of achieving it in a theater. I see many enthusiasts with dedicated spaces for each purposes.

I'm going to start by assuming what you call back wall (wall behind the speakers) is what I call front wall (wall in front of listeners). Moving speakers away from the front wall changes the ratio between the direct sound from the speakers and their reflections off the front wall. Since these reflections are coming from the same direction as the direct sound, then can muddy the front soundstage. IF you can't place the speakers away from the front wall, broadband absorption between them will do the same thing.

Toeing in the speakers also helps quite a bit.
Not all reflections are unwanted. Side wall reflections come from outside the L/R speakers, helping to widen the front soundstage and give a greater sense of spaciousness (their near-wall reflections are roughly where the Wides would go). You can control this effect with toe in: the more you toe in the speakers, the less their side wall reflections; the more you toe them out (e.g., pointing straight into the room), the more spacious the sound. Like having a slider that says Envelopment on one end and Detail on the other. Your preference will likely be somewhere in between.

One of our local home theatre group, @adude (Manoj), has a curved baffle wall. From what I remember, his L/R speakers are cross-toed (aimed at the listener at the opposite end of the couch) for some time/energy trading.

You achieve the same results using any of the methods that minimize front wall reflections between the speakers: move them away from the front wall, cover the front wall with absorption, baffle mount the speakers.

Thanks! This would be fun to experiment with.

Another thing that occurred to me is that some of the pleasing effect may be psychological - when you can *see* the speakers, but clearly *hear* instruments from both in front of and behind the plane defined by the two speakers, you marvel at how cool that is; an effect that is diminished when you're looking at a screen. You may hear the same depth of soundstage, but be less struck by it.

If you were able to get the speakers setup right for a solid 2 channel rig...I wonder how much affect the screen would have if any on the sound..?

Screen attenuation is a pretty known quantity, and can be measured and compensated for with EQ.

Although that raises a separate question - for those who have adopted the practice of using room optimization only up to the Schroeder frequency, do they not worry about the screen attenuation?

Even if you're limiting automated room correction to below the transition range, you can still use PEQ to manually compensate for screen loss. Those that are are absolutist about it can tell themselves that they're technically not doing "room" correction above transition.

The same speaker moved to 5 different locations in the room will result in 5 different frequency response measurements. IF (big if) you have good sounding speakers, then it is OK to limit the fixing of peaks and (shallow) dips to below transition, since you are legitimately removing unwanted audible colourations that the room is adding to the sound.

Above this range, it is still worth using EQ to gently shape the frequency response (like a mild tone control) so that you end up with the same timbre from all speakers, allowing sounds to remain consistent as they pan around the room. Those that limit correction to below the transition range can miss out on that speaker-to-speaker consistency.

Forgive me if I'm using the wrong terminology here but, do you think the screen can cause reflections/reverberations from the sound being blocked/not making it through the screen. I know that some speaker makers say their speakers are better with the grill covers off.

Speaker grills are typically much closer and squarely mounted on the speakers.

The purist in the days of stereo almost always took off the cloth screens from their speakers, although it may have been next to impossible to detect whether or not the screens were in place via AB testing. Theaters are set up with speakers and sub's behind their screens. So there maybe a trade off, but what else can one do with a projection screen, if one wants to hide the speakers?

Pearl Jam Streaming in Atmos

If anyone here has an Apple TV 4K, I recommend checking out the new Pearl Jam "Gigaton" Visual Album Experience streaming through the end of the week. It's the full album, but with accompanying visuals (somewhere between a music video and a screen saver). Mastered in Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision!

If you don't have an ATV4K you can also watch/listen on any MacBook, albeit only in stereo. Or, a newer iPhone, with the Atmos mix delivered over headphones.

Thanks for the heads up on this! I just listened to it and while I wish there was more use of the height speakers they did sound really good when they were used. Hopefully we get more music releases in Atmos! I enjoyed this music video/movie/screensaver too.

I just found this old Anthony Grimani white paper, which alleviates many of my concerns. Also featuring a curved baffle wall!

I heard about that, but too late. I have an iPhone and a new pair of headphones that are still in the box. Would have been interesting.


Did you experience it? If so, what are your thoughts?

I greatly enjoyed the record, and the work that went into the accompanying video. Definitely a worthwhile way to spend an hour if you're a Pearl Jam fan.

As for the Atmos mix, I wish I could have experienced it in a proper Atmos home theatre (I have not yet upgraded, my own rig is 5.1). I watched the whole thing on my old MacBook pro, which does not support Atmos, and then the first 20 minutes or so again on my iPhone which does. The virtualized Atmos was pretty cool, although not mind-blowing.

I've always been frustrated by surround music's persistent failure to launch - quad, the DTS music label for 5.1 music, DVD-Audio in 5.1, Pure Audio Blu Ray, Auro-3D - none of it ever seems to get off the ground. My hope is that this latest Atmos music will succeed, but early efforts were only available to stream in Atmos in limited circumstances on limited devices. This Pearl Jam record was the first effort I knew of that you could stream in Atmos properly, and I hope its a sign of more to come.

Not sure if correct place - any Los Angles REW + Mini DSP masters wanna help out? LOL

Hey everyone - I have spent over 10 hours this week, including 2 hours tonight on the phone w/ Chucky, who is very proficient in this. I just got a mini dsp as I finally went duals. First thing I wanted to do was run some sweeps through REW and get some measurements, familiarize myself w/ it. I have only done it once, but I was really just watching. anyways, after hours of hiccups, it seemed as though we got everything situated. So, I went into SPL meter and Generator to run some test tones....it wouldn't play above 46. Correction - it wouldn't READ above 46, which is impossible since room tone should be louder than that anyways. We went through all the steps in the guide - made sure mic was connected, tested all speakers, set up ASIO, etc...just can't figure this out. I dont want to run sweeps w/ the subs with it measuring incorrectly obviously. We also made sure the cal file was entered, and everything seemed to be working up to that point. Any ideas?

Would love if somebody local is willing to help out - either w/ my mic/pc (so I can troubleshoot) or their own, and show me how to get this all setup. I will pick up lunch, pay for your time, I'm honestly just tired of wasting so much of mine! LOL

Just shoot me a PM if you're interested/available. Thanks in advance!

I was finally able to get my subs aligned and eq’d this week and found this thread and video incredibly useful https://www.avsforum.com/forum/113-s...k-through.html If you haven’t already watched it I recommend it as it’s a great starter for noobs like us. One thing mentioned in the video is you can level match your subs using an SPL meter app on your smartphone. While it may not be super accurate it will be equally inaccurate for both subs so they should still match if measured in the same location. Next, I too suffered from the built in SPL meter in REW giving way off measurements. It always seemed to report a dB measurement of 35-45 dB no matter how loud it got. Rebooting the laptop and restarting REW fixed it at least once. Finally, you could try using Java instead of ASIO. Just make sure to boost your AVR’s crossover as high as it will go which should send all of the relevant bass response to your subs for measuring. That is also recommended in the video linked above. After watching the video you could post for help in that accompanying thread. I would offer to help you out but I’m a super noob myself and wouldn’t want to waste your time.

Man I with this virus would clear up and go away. The weather is beautiful. Time for a M&G with a movie, bbq and some swimming..
Can't believe its already been a year since T.H.E. show and Ivan's place afterwards.

I'll host the next one when we can.
If anyone is interested let me know...post up and or PM me.

yeah i can't wait for another get together!

Does anyone care to do a zoom call and just hang out? catch up on what you've been doing with your theater or whatevers. If interested, put down some times that would be good for you.

I would be into that, and I have a paid Zoom account so I can organize one. I like cocktail hour, 5pm weekdays (and I'm pretty clear this week except for Friday).

Does anyone care to do a zoom call and just hang out? catch up on what you've been doing with your theater or whatevers. If interested, put down some times that would be good for you.
I'll have to have my son hook me up with zoom..
Have you done anything new to you setup..?

I just finished diy...installing a mini split AC/heat into my theater.... came out really nice and kicks ass!

Sorry for crappie pic... the room is gray and black..

I'd be new to this group, and technically live outside of LA (OC area), but would just like to know what HT enthusiasts have been doing during this time (seems to be an uptick in HT investments). 5PM Zoom weekdays works for me.

I've seen that you've moved around a bit of gear yourself...
