A few more things to check. In Rew mage sure you have the correct input and output selected. I remember one time I was getting some really weird and consistent results and it was because it was actually switching over to my internal microphone on my laptop.
You should also check to see how the computer is outputting the signal. Is it stereo? 5.1? If it is stereo, you might need to make a setting adjustment in the receiver. Typically stereo signal doesn’t play the subwoofer unless you have that set.
You can also check your sound card settings and make sure it’s outputting at 48 Khz. Here’s a good link: https://www.roomeqwizard.com/help/help_en-GB/html/calsoundcard.html#audioconfig
It really sounds like it’s most likely an issue with the measurement setup. You should see some type of change. If you’re not seeing it change, it appears to be pointing back to the measurement setup. Of course you could hook that red and white cable to one of your stereo inputs on your receiver and test the subwoofer. Just make sure to disconnect the HDMI when you test it. That way you know that you’re testing it through the 3.5 mm to RCA cable. If it is working, then it would sound like the issue is the measurement setup.
Another thing to do would be to hook the microphone directly up to the computer and disconnect the computer from your receiver. Then go on something like YouTube and start doing some sweeps from 20 Hertz to 200 Hertz. Having said this, I’m not sure if rue can measure outside sweeps. I know that is something that Omnimic does, but I’m not sure. You might be able to do something like this.
maybe after you save it upload it to YouTube as one of your own unlisted videos? I don’t know. It’s just an idea, and it’s seemingly getting convoluted the more I think about it.
