Well, if they actually recorded real tanks and they did not add a filter it has to be there!

Can someone tell me why some Blu-ray movies have the bass filtered? What is the point of filtering bass?

depends, some feel "no one" has the capability anyways below a certain point, but for the most part, commercial theater subs are already high passed between 20 and 30hz so they do their mixes accordingly. When the "HT" is done separately, they are leaving it the same as the commercial mix in some cases.

I think Avengers actually put the filter in so they could just go insane with the >30hz material and not worry about system limitation below that point. I think I remember someone mentioning something about that. I am not @FilmMixer though, he likely could give you the exact answer you are looking for.

The theatrical and extended have the same LFE content, no difference.

Weren't blurays bragging about being the same as the master? Are masters mixed for the theaters? Then there needs to be HT mixes on bluray all the time. Basically, no filters.

Sadly, that isn't the case. I had a lengthy conversation with a well known mixer, and he explained that most movies are remixed for disc. Disc mixing apparently involves lower levels and speakers positioned closer to the mixer.

My personal opinion on this: Positioning the speakers closer to the mixer, assuming they're level and FR compensated, should have basically no effect. Other than making the room a bit closer to anechoic, because the speakers are now quite close to the listener and far from the walls. Mixing at a different level, whether it's up or down, completely destroys the entire purpose of a reference level. We can do our own level compensation for various listening levels on the playback side, but only if we know where reference was. It seems that we'd be better off just getting the theatrical mix. But because I (we) never have the opportunity to hear both mixes on the same system, it's hard to accurately judge.

I'm not into "thumbs upping" or "liking". Don't take it personally. Just assume that I found your post helpful. Unless it wasn't.

Just watched X-Men First Class and DOFP back to back at Reference and my initial impressions were correct:

For folks who don't fiddle with re-EQ'ing the bass individually for every single different movie, the 2 movies aren't in the same league.

Of course, according to the folks at DB, if you're willing to spend money on a PEQ and plug in individualized EQ curves for individual movies, even Battleship can be 'decent'.

Actually if you look at each one first class is a little louder. The recommendation for DOFP is to turn up the LFE, no EQ involved.

I see from the previous post above that ,How to Train Your Dragon 2 doesn't have the deep slamming bass that HTTYD has. HTTYD is indeed a bass monster !!
I guess we shall see and hear. (LOL)
don't forget about guardians of the galaxy! i really can't wait for that one myself....it was probably my favorite movie of the year, and it has some great promise of a dynamic track. the soundtrack is definitely good too....some oldies and goodies.

Sadly, this seems to progress only further in the wrong direction.
If the people applauding Atmos and loosing their sleep over which cables to choose knew how the "near-field" soundtracks delivered on many BDs were made they would have a heart-attack.

One of the problems is the reviewers cheering along as dynamic range drops, levels are pushed LOUDer, with clipping and distortion as inevitable consequence - and you damage your hearing trying to get at least some impact out of it.

The bass filtering is a minor issue, because that can actually be fixed.
Dynamic compression and distortion is impossible to fix.

But there is a solution to this.
They only need to provide the theatrical mix on the disc
, preferably in the HD tracks, then the neutered version could be provided as additional DTS/DD tracks.
Personally I would take a lossy DTS/DD any day over a near-field HD.

Yes I hope those two movies have some good bass as they are on my watch list. So is HTTYD 2 and that is the bass does not match the first one. I have Snowpiercer coming today and I hear the bass is not to bad. It is a film with director Joon-ho Bong and the last film I saw he did was The Host. I have to revist that one as I hear it had some good bass. The only draw back is since it is a foreign film it has sub titles. The film has horror, comedy, ect and was not that bad.

How is the hum issue coming along? Did you get the isolator yet?

Completely agree. Watched it again 2 nights ago at my normal "non-enhanced' levels and even the widely touted scenes are less than overwhelming. Sure, they dig low, but the levels are so low..... If you aren't running your system really hot this is nothing to write home about. The scene caps Bosso did over on d-b.com are with his system run 8 dbs hot--and I don't think he ever runs hot.

I think you'll like Snowpiercer. I watched it last night and thought the movie was good, and felt the bass was great too (running 4db hot at MV -15). This is the first movie I watched after wiring up my first DIY sub, DO SI 18[emoji16], so not totally dialed in but damn impressed[emoji106]
