Yeah that scene was ok, but still I did not find it that special compared to most movies that are discussed on here. Bass was there throughout the whole movie..........but it just felt the LFE channel was lacking all that deep bass that should be present with all those massive spaceships and gun fires...could of been something special because that movie had tons of action scenes.

Im running 3 Seaton Sound Catalysts and 2 Submersives...just to give anyone an idea....watched Hunger Games and that had deeper bass than Battlefield and the overall surround sound was better too. Both still awesome movies!

Just watched Starship Troopers. Horrible bass movie. Rate it 2.5/5. I would have thought heavy bass for a movie like this.

Watched Demolition Man. No bass either in this one. Rate it 2/5. Im starting to find older movies don't have much bass or even ULF.

Nope, at that point in time, cinema design specified it only extend/be flat to 40 Hz, which few cinemas could actually achieve, consequently HT 'sub' design was typically no better unless both were designed/certified THX. Until fairly recently, deep, pounding, 'bass' in both cinema and live music meant elevated mid-bass beginning around ~50 Hz, ramping up quickly to a prominent ~80-120 Hz depending on several variables and carrying into the lower mids around 300 Hz, the criteria established circa 1935.

Funny movie - insanely stupid story but funny. There is low frequency content but the problem is that the mixer was obviously only allowed loud sounds and soft sounds, nothing in between. The low frequency parts all seem to be masked by highly compressed sound effects. Looks like the dreaded loudness war has arrived at movie mixing.

It's one film... not an overall trend.

Pretty quick answer smile.gif Hope you're right.

I have to correct myself. Battleship seems to be high-pass filtered. Alien shield goes up:



This is from Tron Legacy when he is taken to the arena:



Both scenes show about 2 min. of C and LFE.

Hmm, frequency on y-axel I assume? What program is that waterfall generated in?

Also, that looks just as crappy as it sounded. The people in here hearing a strong 15-20hz tone in that scene needs to seriously revaluate something....

X-axis = time
Y-axis = frequency
Color scale is dBV^2 to better match what is actually perceived.

I'm late to the party on Battleship. I still haven't heard it at home, but a Regal RPX (http://www.regmovies.com/rpx/) theatre just opened near me, and they had $2 movies so I went to see Battleship, and I was lucky it happened to be in one of their RPX auditoriums (which normally has an up-charge similar to IMAX).

The bass was actually too loud and to make matters worse, the rest of the mix was not loud enough. So it was actually hard to hear the dialogue over the bass. So I was fairly impressed how much volume they could get out of the subs, but of course none of it was even close to ULF. After reading all of your reviews of the movie, that makes sense, so I won't judge RPX's bottom end from that one movie.

As we exited the theatre there happened to be a manager standing at the exit asking us about our experience, so I at least got to voice my concerns. I started off with: "I don't think I've ever said this out loud before... but that movie had too much bass." I then went on to explain that I LOVE bass, but in this case, because the rest of the sound seemed to be not loud enough that the bass actually interfered with the dialogue, etc. So I recommended that they turn everything else up, and the bass down a bit. He told me he would have "one of his professional technicians" take a look.

It never ceases to amaze me that such a huge investment in equipment and facility can result in such a poor experience because they don't bother to adjust it properly. You would think they would have something like Audyssey that could at least get them close... and if they do, then how can things get that far askew within a week of opening? I realize not everyone is an audiophile, but even my kids recognized there was a problem. One of them said: "it was hard to hear what they said, but it was still loud" which is not a bad description.

Any one have an impulse graph for Tron: Legacy. In particular the end scene when they blow up the tron universe?

Pretty sure that scene popped/blew my sub, was curious to see what it took to make that happen. I had a pop during the airplane scenes as well but the end scene is definitive.

Here you go - last 2 minutes of the showdown (C and LFE):

Those last two dips tell the story right there. Man it gets low. Thank you very much for that.

What do you mean by C and LFE?
Jindrak's Avatar Jindrak 07:12 PM 08-13-2012
Kinda basic.....

C = Center Channel
LFE = Low Freq Channel

More from the Tron Legacy showdown (about 3 min.) - C/L/R/SL/SR/LFE:













Looks like a 30Hz movie, i.e. if your system is capable of 30Hz in-room you should get most of the story soundwise.
freeyayo50's Avatar freeyayo50 07:13 PM 08-14-2012
Watched Fight Club (love this movie). There surprisingly was a bit of bass in his one. Don't feel it went really low though. Rate it 3.5/5.

If possible, can someone chart the last scene with the buildings falling. Around 02:15:35 mark.
Scott Simonian's Avatar Scott Simonian 07:30 PM 08-14-2012
It's mostly 30-40hz stuff with the occasional dips down to 20hz and below. Look in the old thread for some graphs I did of Fight Club.

You would be correct. Peak/Avg for all of Tron:Legacy.

It's got some decent amount of quality bass besides aggressive surround soundtrack.

So much for "Below 20 Hz is [fill in the blank with incorrect assessment], so why have it?". Scarecrow's voice is all below 20 Hz.
Great flick and great night at the home movies. cool.gif

Does your graph show the "you need to lighten up" scene? This is C/LFE/L/R from the Blu-ray:



Looks different from what you're showing. By the way, the high level LF content is not in Scarecrow's voice but a separate sound effect.

Thanks for the chart. Soundtrack was great. Lots of surround action.

Check out the scene when the vaporizer thing has gone off and Scarecrow ambushes Katie Holmes and the kid in the alley when they're all drugged up. That scene should be loaded with single digit bass.

Yeah. Fight Club is still one of my favorite surround tracks.

Not sure which scene that is. Do you know at what time this approximately happens?
Scott Simonian's Avatar Scott Simonian 03:04 AM 08-16-2012
Towards the end of the movie right before Batman comes to Arkham Island. Don't know the timestamp.

Yes, this is it wink.gif
The end scene is not of any interest...to people who have LFE-capable systems.
