    Radio Shack SPL meter calibration

    I'm positive I saw a posting here some time ago with a list of calibration offsets for the Radio Shack analog SPL meter. I did a search, but nothing turned up. Does anybody have this info?

    Sub calibration is driving me NUTS!

    The main speakers in my home sound system are Infinity Interlude 60s. The IL60s are powered towers, each with a 12" 500 Watt subwoofer. I recently changed receivers from a Panasonic SA-HE200 to a Harman/Kardon AVR8000. I've set all the speakers to small, and the subwoofer crossover at 80Hz. So...

    50H81 Geometry Overlay file available!

    Well, I needed one, so I made one. This is scaled from the 56" file and may be off by a millimeter or two in places (certainly not enough to effect the picture though). Mine worked out great. The new 'Touch Focus' system makes this whole procedure a breeze! Just enter the service convergence...

    2001 Panasonic calibration info

    I thought I'd start a thread chronicling my findings while doing some more in-depth calibration on a PT-51HX41. This info should apply equally to the PT-47's and the rest of their 2001 HD line. 1. In the service menu, you can adjust SUB-contrast/brightness/color/tint seperately for NTSC and...

    Figuring out impedance on unmarked drivers

    WARNING! Stupid speaker building newbie questions below! I have some drivers that I suspect are greater than the usual 8 ohms, but there are no markings on it whatsoever. How can I determine the impedance?

    Panasonic red-push - the fix is in!

    (I've already posted this in another thread here, but thought it could use a seperate thread) SUCCESS! I'm positively thrilled to report that Michael is indeed correct! Together, the COLOR, B-Y_G and R-Y_A parameters in the service menu can be adjusted for perfect colour decoder performance...

    Enhancing 'cheap' speakers?

    A customer of mine (I own an A/V store) imports a bunch of different things from China and he recently brought by a set of of home theater speakers for me to try out. The fronts are 3-way towers with side firing 8" woofers, a 6.5" midrange and a 1" silk dome tweeter. The center channel has 2...

    Just got a Panasonic PT-51HX41

    I just received one of the new Panasonic PT-51HX41's on the demo floor. I haven't spent more than a couple of minutes with it yet, but a cursory check with The Fifth Element says the line doubler does indeed incorporate 3:2 pulldown detection and reversal (seems to do a very nice job actually)...
