Lone survivor is great, awesome bass but also great surround sound design. Just re-watched Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, another great soundtrack and also some enjoyable bass moments, surprised it hasn't come up in the thread

Lol, why the hate for ported subs?  My ported subs have a MUCH more impressive impact on the famous demo scenes than my sealed sub did.  Such as OHF Washington Monument scene.  Course, I am comparing duals to a single.  Dual vs dual may have been close, but I don't think sealed subs would be more impressive, and likely not as impressive.

I have never had a ported sub, but my four sealed subs are putting a big smile on my face

No hate for ported subs. Just teasing Kevin. I actually do know what subs he has (and is adding) and will hopefully someday soon get to hear them. To each his own. We all know 16Hz is your prefered lower limit. For that ported subs are best. For those of us who want it all we go sealed. Again, no hate, just personal preference. We use what best fits our needs.

PM sent. You may want to wait until you see and hear Ivan's subs we built before coming to me for advice though. redface.gif

Yeah if I had a larger budget I probably would have gone with two sealed subs.  But I was able to get more output in the most noticeable region with my limited budget and limited space.  My testing has not been 100% thorough and scientific...it could be that 15 Hz produces some noticeable effect for me as well.  My current setup is at the top of my size, output, and budget abilities at this time.  I do like sealed subs though, I just couldn't fit 3 or 4.

Yes... and with higher resolution, lower Q, lower F3 and less amplifier power.biggrin.gif Just gotta be careful with placement planning BEFORE installation because experimental movement isn't possible.

Was loud for me wink.gif And there was some decent low stuff that got the walls moving at a couple places.. The trandsucers were getting a workout too... I thought it was well done and the bass plentiful and enjoyable.

Just finished watching Lone Survivor.One word- Aaawesome.Picture and sound are incredible.The amount and quality of the bass is just perfect.Gunfire,explosions and chopper blades swooshes,they all come with tremendous weight.I have 2 sealed ULS-15's in a small 11x11 theater room and , I gotta admit one of the best sounding war movie.Definite buy for me.

Anyone,

When people say " the bass on movie x was made for ported subs" what exactly is meant?

( I'm guessing it means that the bass doesn't go super low, because most ported subs lose steam below the tuning frequency.. Correct? )

Kevin,

That's a big can of worms your're opening up there. Bass in movies aren't made for any type of sub. It is designed with whatever factors the mixers/producers or whoever has their hands in it decide on. Whether or not a sub can reproduce those effects are based on the type of sub you have. Some movies have content into the single digits. Can a ported sub reproduce that? Possibly, but it would take a lot of them and a lot of power to do so and it's just not feasible. If you want a single digit capable system you need to go sealed or IB. If you want more power in the upper bass region at a lower cost in money and power go ported and horns. That's a basic generalization in a nutshell.

-2? That is LOUD. I was watching it at -15 and thought it was loud. You should watch Seal team 8, best bass movie this year in my book.

Another recommendation here for Lone Survivor... Amazing sound track. The bass is deep and it hits hard during the action. It is also one if the best modern war movies ever made.

I don't know about that. Private Ryan and Platoon are two excellent movies. However if you are referring to modern as the current war, then yeah maybe, but you would have to consider Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker. I am looking forward to picking up Lone survivor on Tuesday. Seen it in the movies and thought it was a very good movie.
