     Hey gang.  Here is the in room response of my PB2000.  Just to give everyone an idea of the setup, the PB2000 is corner loaded in front of the room.  I graphed its response after adjusting phase to get the best results.  Then, I placed the Polk PSW110 in a few different locations, running...

    I realize that a question of this kind can easily be answered by just making the adjustment but a simple adjustment and running a demo scene expectedly won't give me the full story. I'm wondering about this question as I get fabulous bass when running at full on reference but it's doesn't...

    I've been fighting a terrible dead spot all the way down the center of my room length wise. Its from the ground to about 3 1/2 feet high from one end if the room to the other right down the center and it's about 3 feet wide. There is literally no sound at 60hz. It could be 100db and you move...

    Figured I'd start a thread for those of us who are looking beyond typical canned solutions and have already begun exploring the rabbit hole of acoustic optimization. There's a big wide world beyond any one solution or single brand's offerings, and even pigeon holing ourselves to solely one...

    So I FINALLY made a decision on some speakers!!!! I had decided on Tempests but, LONG story short, was going to wait but came across these and they were such a crazy amazing deal I couldn't pass them up!! JBL 3677's and some JBL 8330's for surrounds. I will give a review in another thread, but...

    I've just downloaded REW 5.0 onto my Apple Macbook Pro and AustinJerry's Step By Step Guide to setup the program correctly. However, I notice that the guide is specific to Windows. How do you configure and setup the program to run properly on a Macbook? Is there a setup guide for Mac users...

    Looking for a good USB mic to use on a windows machine with HDMI and no fancy sound card. Trying to stay around $100 or less. I've been reading about the MiniDSP UMIK-1 and the Dayton UMM-6. Which of these two would be recommended with the current version of REW? Or maybe you can suggest...

    Hi Just went to download REW and noticed its still on version 5.0, and that the latest update is from 2011. Is REW now abandon-ware or can I find a newer version somewhere?

    I'm hoping this thread can help many more... While waiting for the 3x TUX 1099's and 4x Fusion 8 kits, I'm playing with my MiniDSP/REW trying to figure out my room response cause I need to do some acoustic panels. I'm trying to understand what the graphs below are telling me and am hoping...

    OK, so I recently added 2 more PSA XS15s for a total of four in my 4880 cu. ft. living room and am getting some results after adjusting phase that I'm not sure how to interpret. I have 2 of the subs in the front of the room and 2 in the back. The red line is all 4 subs with phase set to 0...

    I have been over most of the info about REW and how to setup everything and am having several problems. First question is do I HAVE to use the ASIO drivers with a HDMI connection from my laptop to the receiver? Or can I use the JAVA instead with a HDMI connection? My laptop only has a HDMI...

    I built a set of Cheap Thrills that I am putting head to head with my old DCM KX-12 speakers. I have 2 Onkyo 818s and I am splitting the HDMI signal to both receivers, allowing me to A/B compare the speakers quickly with just the mute button. Something doesn't seem/sound right. While I listen...

    It was suggested in the REW Setup thread that I start a new thread to discuss the use of REW's EQ feature with the miniDSP, so here it is! I'm a complete newby to REW and sub EQ. About a month or so ago I downloaded REW and started learning to take measurements. Now that I'm more comfortable...

    When generating a test tone, you select volume level -20 dB, -10 dB, 0 dB etc. With an audyssey calibrated AVR, how loud will it be at listening position? Will a 0 dB signal and 0 dB on the AVR be 105 dB ?

    I was recommended the Behringer ECM8000. It looks good, but finding a xlr to trs adapter is proving to be a pain ( I want more than 3 ft of cable) and I'm not quite understanding the power requirements. I've been looking online for an hour. Would someone help me out on the power supply and...

    I am at a loss. I decided to move into the 21st century and upgrade to HDMI for REW. I've gone through all the programming and verified all connections and settings are correct. I have hit a wall though and after spending 5 hrs trying everything I can think of, I'm out of patience. I am...

    When I set test tones on my Onkyo TX-NR709 and use the UMIK with REW as an SPL meter, it shows 90db output...my phone with an app shows 60-ish...I already know my phone is not very accurate, but I have to believe that there is no way this is 90db...I thought these tones were supposed to be 75...
