Haven't seen it, but I do like Donnie Yen movies. I wonder if it has anything to do with the movie The Forbidden Kingdom.

Yeah sure. Lone Survior is tonight and maybe Taken 2 possibly tomorrow. My wife liked the first one, so I really bought for her.

Yeah, enough with the remakes already, Hollywood is running out of ideas...

Did you have a chance to measure the remaster of the original? http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/RoboCop-Blu-ray/89781/

I've been checking out Battlestar Galactica, never seen it before, currently on Season 1, and it's got some fantastically deep bass. It's not the most dynamic, but it is digging down to about as low as my subs go, 15hz, I think. There's definitely some infransonic material there. But, it's not just that it's deep, it's that kind of deep sound that has some character. Really cool, well designed sound effects, not just noise.

That's exactly what I'm saying. Run your sub(s) hot like usual and watch with the volume at -10 to -12 and you're set.

Just a fella who loves good sound.

just got hurt locker and looper on blu.  rented them and loved them, just never got around to buy them.  about $12 later for both, and i spun them over the weekend.  both have great stories and some stout bass to go along.  3:10 to yuma came in today, along with lone survivor.  lone survivor was a blind buy based on you fellas and ladies here, but ive heard many good things so not concerned.  can't wait to give htem a go.

Well, well, well done!

And a great movie to boot?! Winner winner chicken dinner all day!

for some reason i had convinced myself that i wouldn't like this movie...

but, dang, based on this review (and ralph's) i'm having a change of heart.

gonna HAFTA pick this up now...

I purchased it blind last night from all the great things I've read about the movie itself and the audio quality, looking forward to watching it once my HT setup is complete.

Battlestar Galactica is the best series I've ever seen. You have to watch every single episode of every season to get the full picture of that series, but it goes some pretty amazing places. The bass is indeed veryyyy fulfilling.

Guys, 

 

could anyone help me out and explain how to interpret these types of graphs....

 

Across the top i see HZ and that makes sense.  Across the left edge i see another scale wich i think it volume relative to reference level?

 

How does the color coding work?  

 

Thx!

Take a look at the color legend. Pink and purple spots are going to be loud.

The vertical axis is time, starting at 0 from the bottom. The pinker the louder.

If properly setup, the color scale will be -dBFS, or decibels from full scale (the max possible on the disc medium given its encoding, which is much different from reference), and correlate to the -dBFS scale in the black region. However, to show more content, almost everyone runs SpecLab scenecap graphs with a +dB offset, which makes the graphs show more and prettier colors, but also makes them appear hotter than what's actually on the disc. The rest was explained adequately by the other posters.

Not sure if this counts as I have no way of measuring but I remember in the first Pirates of the Caribbean when the medallion goes boom underwater to signal the Black Pearl having some good bass.

Also, Terminator Salvation has some great bass as well especially the gas station scene with the mech.

Thx bear!  REW tells me  i have a null at 60 hz.  unfortunately my subs or sofa cant really be moved due to my room layout though.  I was able to reduce it a bit though by adjust the delay on the large vertical marty in the corner.  

 

I'm going to build a 4th ported 18, in the next few weeks.  I'm pretty excited about it actually.  Im gonna build a coffee table and put it where the black ottoman is in picture 2. Im gonna have the driver face up towards the ceiling, and then Im going to mount a nice 3/8 inch piece of glass, with a polished edge, about 3 inches above the driver.  

 

because sub # 4 is so close to the MLP, I think it's gonna help me reduce the null.  It should also give me some extra near field impact, and look pretty damn cool, as well : )

 

Once I get home I'll PM you the in room response graph, so you can see if for yourself.  As far as max output sweeps....i have no idea how to do those, but perhaps you can explain to me via pm if you dont mind.  What i can tell you, and yeah - i realize it's purely subjective - is that the other night i watched thor 2 ( dark world IIRC )  at -5dbfs, and there were a few scenes that scared the **** out of me / had my house sounding like a train was in our living room.:D

Sounds like an awesome idea on the coffee table!  Wonder if you could do some sort of custom dust cap that says your home theater name or something?  As far as a max output sweep, just do the normal REW sweep, like from 10-200 Hz at say.....-20 MV to get a baseline response.  Then step up in 5 dB increments to -15, -10, -5 etc.  You should get linear 5dB increases in output along the way.  When you start to approach your limits, you will either hear your subs complaining, or the distance between the FR will get smaller, which indicates you are starting to reach max output/compression.  Just be careful not to go too high, don't want to hurt anything.  For example, I start to get compression at certain points when I exceed 100-105 dB.  I can hit about 110 from 20-80 but I am compressing a lot by that point.

I was thinking the first 2 movies I'd watch are Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down. This is an exciting week for me, having to wait almost 10 years to go from 2.0->3.0->3.1->5.1.

There are tons of movies with superb mixes a few that come to mind

Tron Legacy
Oblivion
Enders Game

Transformers (any)

Oz
Gravity
( check this one out after the rest as it has a unique surround mix that really utilizes the rears)

Enjoy & congrats smile.gif

Another good one to rent is All is Lost. That sound mix is incredible.
