I watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with the kids last night. I had read that at least the bass was impressive, but I didn't like it at all. It had that kind of bass that either sounds boomy if you turn it up and too weak if you turn it down.

The movie did have an impression on our 6 year old daughter, I saw this in her room this morning:

There's definitely nothing wrong with choosing not to chase the low end. Nothing wrong with that at all. But I hate seeing the idea that it must be expensive to do so get repeated. People see posts like those, assume that it's true, and then never even bother experiencing it to decide for themselves whether to try for it.
It doesn't have to be expensive; it just takes a little effort. My previous system was flat to the single digits frequencies, and the total cost was in the 3 digits.

Nice work! Budding artist. And agreed on the movie.

It's a mystery, but at our house, somehow the indelible markers always find the white board.

I hear you. You're good with the system you have. I just think it needs to be pointed out that this flick isn't in the same league as WOTW. Not even close. Seems like 80% of those comparisons on this thread are by people who don't have the ability to truly experience what WOTW or TIH have to offer or haven't watched either in so long they've forgotten. Lol.

And single digit playback doesn't require anywhere near 5K if your room isn't ginormous. But I respect what you're saying.

I did not find anything special with the TMNT bass, and I did not like the movie at all.

Had the Christmas Eve dinner with family over last night. Put Ratatouille on for the kids. When the lighting struck it got everyones attention in the kitchen. Since it was raining last night They all thought it was lighting and thundering outside since the floor was rumbling.


Put in The November Man today and it is pretty good with the surround and the bass. Some weight to some guns and couple of sweeps.

I always enjoy the Sherlock Holmes movies with Robert Downey jr. Bass always dips fairly deep during the fight scenes.

Merry Christmas

Yes! I made a post on Ratatouille a few weeks back, it screams reference beyond a doubt, did you happen to select the LPCM track? I also have the November Man on hand from Netflix and thanks for the heads up

Has anyone measured Guardians of the Galaxy at the start when the ship lights appear above the boy? Running 2 Seatons submersives HP+ and it really packs a punch sounds very impressive.

Yeah the bass is well done in that movie. The shotgun blast is another one.

Yes the blast was another good one.

I did not expect this film to have good bass as there was not much talk here yet. All in all it was done pretty good except for a couple of explosions where it missed IMO.

I've had the "Rat" movie for years. Bought it mainly because there was a lot of discussion in one of the OPPO forums about using that movie for dialing in your display. Beyond that, it's also a great movie soundtrack.
You can read about the dialing in of the display here;

Yep, that made me jump out of my seat. Keep an eye on the new demo disk lemonslush is creating in the home theater thread. That world war z grenade scene, I still think has some of the heaviest hitting bass I have yet heard.

I have to disagree. My F12's didn't seem to get much of a workout and the track as a whole was kind of a letdown for me. It seemed kind of lifeless.

Too bad, because the data states otherwise.

Expendables 3:

Level - 4 Stars (110.46dB composite)

Sometimes I wonder how other people's systems are setup.. There seems to be quite the divide on bass in this forum. E3 had some house rattling scenes on my system

I agree. I can't fathom how anyone would think this movie had no bass lol.

A properly calibrated system for whatever room it resides in is the first step. If you can not achieve reference @ the MLP(main listening position), then it's time re-think your system's capabilities.
