    I am going to be bringing home an Audio Control RTA (Real time analyser) For tuning my car audio system this weekend. I was wondering if it would be of ny use in my home theater. Has anyone ever used one in thier home theter. Would it be usefful setting levels or anything else. Thanks on any tips using this piece to adjust things. Juan

    Juan,
    Of course an RTA is as useful for a home theater as for a car or any other acoustical environment. However, they are typically used to aid in calibration of 1/3-octave or parametric equalizers. If you don’t have one, about all you will be able to do is see where the problems are (if any) in your system’s room response.
