     Just a question, I understand using EQ for addressing the very deep bass issues (100 Hz and down) can be beneficial. How about above the Schroeder frequency? Can EQ still be beneficial?

    I got TASCAM 144 mk II sound card and calibrated ECM 8000. I am still trying to understand running the EQ wizard software. The connection diagram for Eq wizard says to connect Left or right line output of TASCAM(Sound card) to receiver to test. Sound card only sends output to one channel. It...

    I found this really interesting paper on the measurement of horns by Jean-Michel Le Cléac'h, of "Le Cléac'h horn flare" fame. http://forums.melaudia.net/attachment.php?aid=1760 You'll note that he uses the continuous wavelet method for part of his analysis. I don't think REW currently...

    I knew this was how it was going down, so I went with it. I hoped to get solid replies on the input to my Alpine IVA-W505 HU. I do not want to run RCAs because they tend to be nasty dirty from PC, but I just might have to. Also IDK if I kept the AUX IN RCA connector for the HU. So I tried the...

    Just curious which software is better... I don't mind paying for software if it is better or brings more options to the table. I already have: USB sound card (E-MU 0404) External Behringer ECM8000 Measurement Microphone Laptop with Windows XP DCX2496 Should any of the above equipment...

    OK, I had this question running into my head for quite a while by now. But it is hard to ask in any one thead only, for fear of shaking the ground under peoples' heart. It is a tough question too, because who had experience with several of them? No need to had experience with all of them...

    How do I use room eq wizard? I tried to search for a QUICK answer. I bought the radio shack test meter & Avia 2 dvd. I wanted to get a computer graph of the sound response using the full sweeps (20HZ to 20KHZ on Avia2) and then I can see where my peaks & dips are. Do I just downloand room...

    I have started collecting parts to measure/calibrate my dedicated HT room. I have a laptop running windows XP, A Radio Shack Digital SPL meter. I guess my next step is to get an external sound card. There are two models that I have found info on and has been used by forum members. Creative...

    I have read some things on this Room EQ Wizard and was wondering if its worth it for me to continue doing research and getting what is required to use this software. Currently, I have Pioneer Receiver 1016 with MCCAA or whatever the acronym is. I have a 7.1 system (see profile) in a small room...

    Hey guys, I have finally gotten fed up with "flying blind" with no measurements other than an SPL meter. I have decided to download Room EQ Wizard for my laptop. However, I have no idea what type/kind of microphone to purchase to take measurements into the subsonic freqs. Can anyone...

    Hi all, I ordered the 2 new SVS Plus 12.3 drivers for my 20-39PC+ subs with the slightly older 12.2 drivers. I want to be able to compare them both subjectively and objectively. I have always just use the RatShack meter, the corrections and test tones for setting up and "testing" my subs...

    I thought it would be fun to compare RoomEq wizard against my new SMS-1. Please note, I'm by no means an expert in this area just a tinkerer. The set up: RoomEQ Wizard running on my laptop with the rat shack meter. Here are a couple room shots to get an idea. Note, the SMS mic is only 4...

    Well, I figured it would be easy since I read through the help file and it was quite step by step however, I seem to be having some troubles. When I plug my RS meter into the soundcard's Microphone in port via a RCA to stereo 1/8" mini plug, my RS meter maxes out when it is not switched to...

    Could somebody recommend a cheap external usb soundcard that would be adequate (i.e. have all the necessary inputs/outputs) for use with Room EQ software?
  15. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    Hi all, I just got a Behringer ECM-8000 microphone and a M-Audio MobilePre USB pre-amp measuring my HT. So my question is, should I spend the $100 for full TrueRTA or save my money and get Room EQ Wizard? I don't have the time to learn both programs and I would really like to know which one...

    I just download Room EQ Wizard. I have my speakers set to small with a crossover of 80hz. I have attached 2 graphs from Room EQ. The first graph is just the sub. I agree it looks terrible. The second graph is the sub and right main speaker. Why do the lower frequencies look so much better? John

    I finally got my BFD 1124P in the mail. I also finally got the Room EQ Wizard program to work. How do I set up the two to work together? Ive think that I can hook-up a microphone to the computer, then computer hooks to reciever, and then have the Rm EQ Wiz optimize my BFD settings...
