The calibration mic thing is to balance the sound evenly on surround sound systems, it replacles the older systems "TEST TONE" speaker setup, in other words it will balance each speaker say in a 5.1 setup to adjust the level output so the listening position is not overwhemled by say the rear surround speaker overriding the front left & right speaker or the most critical the center speaker. The calibration mic uses computer tech to make it easier for the user, no sound pressure calibration is needed as with the test tone setup mentioned earlier. The wireless speaker situation could be possibly waiting for the calibration confirmation, Read any user manual information if available.

No surrond, it wants me to connect calibration mic, what duse that mean. I put t all front on the speakers then thy all come on.


Usually the rear speakers dont have audio unless something goes from front to back. You could also try some of the different sound fields to get a simulated surround effect. Digital sources will give you the most accurate sound field. Try a bluray dvd player. Hope this helps.

I'm not sure I understand exactly what you're doing, but I can tell you how to do
an SWR calibration. You have a three-way switch on the left next to the meter.
From top to bottom they are: s/rf (signal/radio frequency), swr, and cal (calibrate).
Put the switch in the "cal" position. Key the mic and hold it. Turn the SWR calibration
knob one way or the other until it lines up with the triangular mark in the upper
right corner of the meter. Then put the switch in the middle (swr) position and key
the mic again. It will give you a reading on the swr band on the meter. The lower the
better: 1:1 is perfect, 1:2 is OK at best. Any higher (especially over 3:1), and you have a
problem that can't be fixed by tuning. You have a bad antenna, a bad coax or a
mismatched pair of antennae if you're running co-phase.Hope this helps.

Im not sure if its a mic problem or an interface(m-audio fast track) or even if its the program im using (adobe audition 1.5) but when i record using the sterling ST51 it sounds like im about two miles...


First, Make sure you are speaking into the front of the microphone. there should be a logo or brand name at the front to show you. because of the cardioid pattern, sounds behind the mic are not picked up; good if the sound you want to isolate is at the front, not so good if it's at the back. Second, make sure the gain on the fast track is turned up. And third, try using a different program. It's unlikely to be the problem, but if it is, it's an easy fix.

My yamaha did not come with the optomizer mic


You can, and the results might be better than not optimizing, but they might be worse.
The optimizing process listens for resonant frequencies in the room (what pitch "rings" longer in your room) as well as damped frequencies (what pitch sounds "dead" in your room)
To do this, it needs a mic that's matched to the unit.

Different mics have different frequency response curves, so your friend's mic might think (for example) that 2500hz is really hot, but the yamaha mic would think it's normal.

Certainly won't hurt to try, but if you don't like the way things sound after optimizing, then just reset your yamaha to the default EQ.

C 518 ML Isnt Working


Make sure that you are supplying phantom power. This mic requires it. Without phantom power, the mic will appear to be dead.

Let me know if that resolves the problem.

Surround sound will not work sr805


Did the speaker cailibration work on the speakers in question?
If YES, then the program material or settings you're using don't require the rear speakers.

By "Back" do we mean Surround or Surround Back? Surround Back speakers are the 6th and 7th channels in the 7.1 matrix. Not all source material has programming for them. But when using any 7.1 digital surround mode you can get anything, even stereo recordings, to output something from every speaker.

If NO, check your connections...

Hi, This is a link to your old post re SWR 3....http://www.fixya.com/support/t180697-pc78_elite_cb As stated SWR 3 is too high, it should be 1.5 or lower. Fiberglass antenna are kinda notorious in setup and experience wise have not performed well or at all. Maybe you should try a different antenna (metal rod). Some good brands/models I have tried with very good results are K40, Hokushin, Comet, Oscar, Maldol, Daiwa. To check if you can receive, stick an ordinay length of wire ('bout 9' long) at the center of your radio's connector. RX should work (pls don't key the mic or TX).

Calibration mic problems


I had the same symptom on a SONY DAV-DX375. The problem was I didn't have the mic plugged in far enough. The receptacle is very tight even though it is very tiny. Make sure to push plug in until the plastic part is against the front panel. It sounds obvious, but I was surprised how much force it took to seat the plug.
