Is this based off watching the blu ray? Rolls off at 20hz from measurements or is this a subjective impression?

Thanks

I saw HTTYD2 in IMAX and it was overall very quiet for an IMAX film.

This is all very disappointing news regarding HTTYD2, I was really hoping it was going to be great. Why would anyone release a movie about dragons and kill the bass in it? If there was ever a subject that allowed for great LFE it would have to be dragons. Sad.

Pure bass heaven on dual SVS cylinders. I was actually surprised how clean it was. On the first pass I had the volume tamped down down to make sure I didn't blow anything, so I started cranking it up higher and higher. Fantastic.

After a few sweeps, I'm sitting there giggling like a kid, and my wife suddenly appears in the room, hands on her hips, and asks what the frack I'm doing. Feeling like I just got caught with my hand in the cookie jar, I say, "Um, I was listening to bass sweeps from that new movie I told you about." Long pause. Play it for me, she says, and sits down. Surprised at this, I happily oblige, and let it rip at near reference.

After the room quits shaking, she looks at me and says, "That was awesome." I'd expected her to yawn, or say guys are such dorks, or whatever, but nothing like this. So I say, "You're kidding me, right? You're just messing with me." But she says, "No, I love bass like that. It was AWESOME." I nearly fell out of my chair.

True freaking story. Wife is a bass head. She'll probably "make me" play EOT tonight. Unbelievable.
Nice. What sub woofer do you have? You must have things firmly secured in your viewing room.

I understand Maxmercy's comments better now about how fatiguing something like T4 or Into Darkness is in comparison to something like WS. WS reminded me of the audio on Three Musketeers to some degree which is also a track (to my ears at least) that is very dynamic, clean, mixed very well and with full range LFE support.

Also revisited Troll Hunter which is a really fun audio track/LFE movie!
Fully Agree on Winter Soldier - amazing all around
Troll Hunter lot of fun too
will have to check out Three Musketeers - I like Paul W.S. Anderson flics and having Jovovich does not hurt

Just finished watching HTTYD 2 in 3D...


I listened to it VERY loud and could've gone louder cause it did not feel loud.
The bass...very disappointing! Couple of rumble spots and all of it at the end...nothing to brag about on this one.
So disappointed

The movie was really good and well thought out.
If I re-watch it...I will put my subs 40DB hot

I feel like this now...


ON the next movie with lots of bass (don't know which one)

We've got PB12 NSD's, and yup things are pretty secure. Had to tighten down all the HVAC vents a few months ago during U-571. They were rattling bad.

Since then, the only thing that happens sometimes is a refreshing adult beverage might spill a little. :-0


Every once in a while, quite inexplicably, things actually go according to plan.

So, so, so disappointed. Pretty awful bass, considering expectations. So many opportunities lost. Does it seem like Randy Thom has mailed it in recently? The Croods was the last one i recall him doing and that was disappointing, too.

I also stand by my assessment of DOFP. Go back and watch First Class and then tell me how good DOFP was.

Say it isn't so Fatshaft! Man, I was SO looking forward to this release! Thanks for the report. Was the 3d good at least?

I liked DOFP! I watch most movies at 8-10 dBs hot and this one had lots of deep stuff. The sweep was one of the deepest ever! Great movie and great overall sound, I love it! IMHO much better than TF4. I liked the overall sound better than EoT as well. First class had louder bass but this one felt more dynamic. Let's put it this way, all the x-men had awesome bass.

HTTYD2 has a craptastic soundtrack. I was extremely disappointed. It seeemed like every scene that should have had some bass, had almost none. Then at the very end, when the tusk hits the ground you get the biggest bass blast in the movie(still lackluster though). Didn't make any sense. Just like to reiterate also what everyone else is saying here, DOFP was the exact opposite. Great soundtrack, and even more importantly great movie.
