Also just ordered the War of the Worlds BD from Amazon, mostly because, in the immortal words of Gilda Radner's Roseanne Roseannadanna, "It was rill chip." I got it for less than 10 bucks. That's what I call a bargain! Looking forward to seeing both of these films again. Thanks again for the heads up.
The World War Z grenade scene is one of the coolest LFE experiences I've had. It's very short but, great.

I've been picking up more films with great LFE thanks to tips I received both here and in the JTR thread. Just preordered the Dredd UHD HDR Atmos disk from Amazon. It is to ship on June 6th. In addition to great audio, it's a fun story. I loved the evil, scarfaced Lena Heady.

My go to demo HT scene is war horse chapter 21. You liked Hacksaw Ridge? Very similar but even more impact...no joke.

You should use the spl meter tool in REW set to Z weighted, fast response and use the spl logger... it will let you see the loudest peaks in overall spl (including under 30Hz stuff) and also average levels.

Fast response updates 8 times per second so it can better capture loud transients that slow response will just average once per second.

Z weighted means unweighted and so it won't roll off the extreme ends of bass and treble... just don't use it for setting trims/levels as c, slow is recommended for that.

I have a feeling you're listening much louder than you previous post indicates, considering how much tactile response you're getting. The UMIK-1 is a better spl meter than actual ones that also measures everything else in REW.

I think i may be listening at too high a level too. Will check it out with REW.

I was going to make a vid clip of rew with some music but the spl box wouldnt go over 100db and kept giving flashing red warnings lol. I was using the RTA box with distortion, levels, spl, etc... but just didnt get it figured out...so scrapped that idea.

I will use the REW SPL meter as you advise and see what it tells me. My son in law and I spent a couple of hours this afternoon fine tuning my FV18s and we agree that their levels are now about right. I still get a tactile feel from deep and loud LFE, though. I think that is the result of my subs nearfield location. The driver of each is only about 7 feet from my MLP. With two 18 inch drivers putting out simultaneously being able to feel it is not necessarily caused by very loud listening levels. Anyway, I will follow your admirably clear instructions for using the REW SPL meter and find out.
