one more thing I just had to come to mind. some AVR sets, I read many people set their
speakers to small, I believe it will put out less tones below 100Hz. and let a 1000 watt
sub fill in. this one is not as powerful. speakers set to large allows full spectrum.
most all movies I buy BR are musical types, new and old. the Sony AVR I bought
str-dh 830 is now 'out of date' as 4K TV became available. with it the 7.1 on the disney WOW
BR disc set the 7.1 will make your music fill the room and almost make it all sound like
the music is from all over the room, awesome. it test your speakers to be sure they are all
polarized and working together. I do not know if you have access to one. you might try
one in the future. the 7.1 music on the WOW disc besides fully filling my theater room
will even travel down the hallway leading to it, making it sound omni directional too.
new on here, you might check your area for any local group meetings. then you can go
see what others are using. some one there might have sampling DVD/BR to view and
hear. I brought the test tone CD to one. he just bought a $1000 sub. he put it in his
player and was waiting for the sounds to start. he was astounded when standing next to
the sub. he heard some glass dishes start to rattle 50 feet away in his kitchen/no sound
out of the speaker box at 15 Hz. then some of us standing at the back of his theater room
heard pictures on a wall rattling real bad. he and another went to grab to see what picture
was causing it. the other visitor said dude it is your whole wall vibrating. what a laugh 18Hz
and still we could not hear anything out of the speaker.....
there was a download somewhere on avs that might do dome of the same speaker
testing for free, similar to the WOW help set you up. you might have to search
that one out too. it might be in the test tone of the 101 HT area.
