    I am facing 2 issues with my Strix G15 (5800h with rtx 3070). When I connect my laptop to LG CX directly via HDMI, i cant toggle Dolby atmos. All my drivers are up to date. I've tried using the optional driver but its still not working. When I click on Atmos for home theater but nothing...
  2. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    I would like to understand more about subwoofers and group delay, and what causes it? I have been reading these forums and looking at subwoofer reviews and one of the things that people talk about in terms of subwoofer "tightness or quickness" is group delay, and generally how sealed subs have...

    I'm using an old Yamaha HTR-5560 with two powered speakers as a stereo pair connected to the main L & R pre-outs. When connected this way, the left channel is giving a distorted signal. I'm convinced this is the L pre-out itself and not a speaker or cable issue: I've troubleshooted this by...
  4. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    When we bought our house, the previous owners left behind a very nice entertainment audio system, including a Velodyne 12BV subwoofer. I noticed that instead of playing bass, it was making low frequency popcorn noises, sort of like an intermittent rivet gun. While I was trying to diagnose the...
  5. DIY Speakers and Subs
    I took a few measurements in the main listening position in my setup at various SPL levels to get an idea of how much bass I "need", and how close I am to getting there with low distortion. I'm wondering if folks on the forum have done the same / have SPL numbers with distortion graphs available...

    My first post here. :) Having moved houses a couple of times in recent years, my old 5.1 system has been packed away for a good while now. I have finally started to put it all back together with the help of on-line manuals, but for a reason I cannot figure out, the two rear KEF speakers are...

    A couple months ago I got a set of 5.1 speakers for my computer, the Swan M60-5.1. This is supposedly a very high-end brand? When the speakers are not idling they sound pretty great, especially when all of them get in on the action for movies and games. But I've noticed from the beginning that...

    In my bedroom, the small system, I have an older Onkyo txds696 (15 yrs old). It has been fine until about a month ago. It has distortion at lower volumes in the higher frequencys. I've been googling but not finding anything. I normally never turn it off due to the dtv remote not doing power for...

    I am writing this e-mail due to the utter disrespect and a suggestion from the customer relations rep Oscar "employee number" C1DU. My original HT-ST 9 audio system was bought on 2 October 2015. After having the sound bar for a little over a month it developed a issue that I could not receive...

    I got a pair of new JBL Control 1 Pro (5" 2-way) and did some listening and also some measurements with REW. For general music it seems like they will sound OK with a sub and some EQ to lighten up the upper bass/midrange. But for my instrument application there is a problem with distortion. For...

    Hey guys, I have two brand new Polk Audio tower speakers(Monitor 75T) and when ever I play some songs, movies, or what ever, when it has high frequency in some voice, songs, etc. the tweeter distorts even at a low volume. I have researched and some say its the receiver being weak, which I have...

    so I have a 5.2 set up right now with b&w CM10s as fronts, cmc2 as center and my older infinity alpha 50s as surrounds and I noticed after calibration using audyssey a crackling or fuzzy type noise coming from what appears to be the tweeter on the front right speaker. I did buy some audioquest...

    My wife likes her music loud! She likes the convenience of her music on her phone. I want to get her a good speaker that she can stream her music from her phone to the speaker and vibrant some windows... It doesn't matter if it is bluetooth or jacked in. It doesn't have to be crazy portable...

    I've got a McIntosh C2500 tube pre-amp, paired with a 275 bi-amp (and some Martin Logan electrostats.) I recently acquired a roomate (lucky roomate, right? :P), and now I'm trying to play games or watch TV at night (the stereo doubles as the sound-system for the television etceteras) with...
