Well my plan was to break the sub in a little bit before putting in LOTR on blu-ray but I just couldn't wait. I watched FOTR and I must say that even without it being broken in, the sub sounded great. Very very strong bass and I only had it turned up to about 11pm on the volume dial. I may go back and revisit LOTR after it's been broken in but so far I love what I hear. Oh and Sam this is for you, my feet were vibrating the whole time. This sub really shakes things up.
