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.

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.

Yes the same with me as my old system did not do First Class justice! I've heard it has good bass. Since I've upgraded and found this thread I've been trying to revisit the films on the list here. It is going to take awhile to do that though because New Releases come first.

I will admit to bumping a few up in my queue if it fits an upcoming release like when The Amazing Spider Man 2 was coming out I revisited Part 1.

Yes that shotgun scene was pretty good now that you bring it up. I watched this after upgrading my system and was caught off guard when she let loose with that gun. Good call.

I did get to watch Godzilla and stayed awake! Overall I enjoyed the movie and it was a fun visit back in time. Yes the story could have been a bit better, but that is not why I watched. I wanted some monster brawling and I did get that although IMO not enough. I hope they are thinking of a sequel.

Now to the sound. IMO which seems to be about the same as some others it could have been better. Not that it was bad as they did use the surrounds and a few times I felt the rumble of bass. The action on the screen and being these are huge monsters like Cloverfield there should have been more bass and more shaking of our seats.

I hope your viewing of this film is a good one and look forward to your take.
WOW, sounds like you are putting in some OT and hopefully some extra bucks in your pocket ! I gave Godzilla BD a spin late Sunday evening, a rental from RedBox. I thought the bass was plentiful throughout the entire movie and some of it pretty deep ! Now I'll admit to turning the master volume up higher on my avr.You are right not good as Cloverfield in terms of deep extension, but I did feel plenty and it did give my subs a good work out. The bass was pretty darn good IMO and I was not disappointed in the least ! The odd thing was when Godzilla was walking around the bass was not as deep as it was with the other Monsters.

I agree there should have been more brawling with more deep extension bass. I'm going to snatch a BD on the cheap and it to my collection as it was not a bad movie overall IMO .
I also tried to watch X-Men: Days of Future Past, but could not hang. Yep, you guessed it I kept dosing off. I purchased the BD and so I will give it another try later. From what I recall the movie was a little slow and or started that way. To be honest I will need to give it another spin as there was some low bass moments, but nothing like X-Men First class .

I have also found an electrical issue that appeared out of nowhere in my HT room. Our house was built in 2001 and so I never would have guessed that it would have an issue like this !! When the HVAC turns on it creates a hum/buzz sound in one of the subs !! Could be a ground loop issue ? I'm going to try a ground loop isolator before calling out an electrician to see if that resolves the issue. Right now I have all of the subs turned off and not set to the auto on feature.

Ray sorry to hear about the hum in the subs that has to be a bummer. Hope you can isolate the problem and get rid of it soon.

Didn't know they had it in 3D. It's the only movie I would probably want to watch that way. It's already so well done. The movie makes you feel like you're down to size with the rats. I love the kitchen scenes.
