    Hello everyone, Not sure where to post this one since it straddles the fence between equipment and REW, but here it goes. I have the Denon AVR-S540BT. It's pretty basic, I know, but it usually gets the job done. However, I have been playing with REW with the UMIK-1, and I have noticed that I do...
  2. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I have always been interested in comparing the results of equalizing my speakers using REW, Audyssey, and Dirac and taking objective measurements for the comparison. I am not someone who is a validated trained listener, but I will also give a brief subjective opinion. First off, my setup is as...

    Hello, I have 2 monitor audio subwoofers at the 1/4 and 3/4 position of my front wall. I have been watching all the home theatre guru videos and I need a little help. Before I try to align the two subwoofers together, am I trying to create a PEQ for each sub to achieve the 'best" flat...

    Hello! I have a 2nd HSU VTF 3.5 on the way and have a few questions regarding the setup and calibration process for dual subs. I've read through quite a lot of the guides on the site, but am still struggling on what order to put the pieces in. Particularly because I'm using a receiver with dual...

    Hi All, I have, for the first time, generated SPL Graphs for my 7.2 surround system. I'm quite new and thought I'd ask here for some guidance on what these graphs might be showing. Hopefully some additional details will help: Room is large, connected to Kitchen, and I have little opportunity...

    I have recently purchased a Umic-1 and downloaded REW. I have a remarkably flat 15-100hz response except a peak at 45 and a dip at 60. moving subs around i was able to smooth this out a bit (cut in 1/2 !!) but still need some EQ action. So i'm shopping for the MiniDSP and am woefully...

    I’m using REW to find an EQ for my SVS PB1000. I’ll be entering the REW recommended filters into a Dayton DSP LF. I’m using a Harman target curve. Pre-DSP, my sub looks like this: Unfortunately, I cannot move my sub from its current position, so the null around 85hz isn’t going anywhere. REW...

    My Marantz 6013 has a “Pure” button that cycles between Auto, Direct, and Pure Direct. I’m having issues getting a clear answer on these and other sound modes such as the “Movie” options. My main question is: When is Audyssey on? I’ve read that it is only ON when you select Auto through the...

    Trying to level match my speakers post Audyssey calibration using an external SPL meter. Without running DEQ. Is my method below sound? I had to add +2dB to my LCR trims and subtract -1dB from my surrounds. I must admit the Pink Noise sounded a bit louder than the receivers test tones. Looking...

    Hi there, I just set up a 9.4.4. setup with an 8805 Marantz. I have 4 in-wall subs with each having their own amp. I have one RCA cable from the AVR to the 4x10HD MiniDSP. And then 4 analog out RCA cables to the different amps that power the subs. I have an HDMI cable from the Marantz to a...

    I've downloaded REW and AudMeS audio measurement software and am trying them out using a Lenovo ThinkPad with individual ports for microphone and headphones, running Windows 7. I've connected a shotgun microphone to the microphone input and connected the headphones output to the aux input of...

    Hello all, I hope this is the correct area to post this... I am interesting in getting the most out of my system, so I purchased a UMIK-1 and intended to do some calibrations and room correction. Now, I'm learning more about it through reading and it seems I need a DSP to apply corrections...

    Would somebody with a firm understanding (and patience lol) of the above equipment and software be willing to offer me some set up/calibration help via pm or other method? I would prefer not to publicly embarrass myself and expose my limited capacity and simple mistakes I must have made trying...

    (sorry, this is car audio related) I built a new subwoofer for our car, the goal was to go as small as possible - so it's a sealed box housing two Sundown Audio EV8's, around 0.7 cu ft net. I measured the anechoic response of that box (outside, box 3 feet off the ground facing upwards...

    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...

    Hello All, Thanks to everyone for suggestions and guidance - without the forum... I wouldn't be at the point I am now, which is way ahead from where I was a couple of months ago. BUT I am still feeling like a complete n00b in comparison to most folks on here. I'm the midst of my first DIY with...
