I'm going to re-watch WOTW to compare but I remember watching the first 30 minutes a few weeks back and the pod scene was intense but overall I found Into the Storm to have more bass or at the very least longer & more extended bass scenes as several of the tornado scenes were quite long and my walls were rumbling the whole time, not to mention I enjoyed Into the Storm versus WOTW which started off great but began to drag and had a horrible ending.

"The Golden Compass" with Nicole Kidman & Daniel Craig ... an adventure/fantasy/family type movie. My wife and I watched to this evening ... it would be good for kids of all ages (nothing great, but good). My wife enjoyed it.

Visually interesting, and not just for Nicole Kidman :-) Good scenery and computer graphics.

And most importantly, it gave my SVS PC13ultra a great workout !!! Engines rumbling, bears growling, and a few decent explosions.

I wasn't expecting so much LFE, but within the first 15 min. or so, I could tell that the audio people meant business, LFE-wise :-)

Ah, good point.. I forget that some of us don't overkill things lol

War of the Worlds, which hits way below 20hz, shakes my whole damn house. Expendables 3...not so much. I measured them and my F12's roll off at about 22-23hz, btw.

I'll take what I'm hearing over your data, because ultimately that's what is most important.

That's because along with the below 20 in WotW it is bloated with 30+ which sounds good to you.

Expendable digs deep and lots of it stronger content is below what your sub is capable of

That's like saying....my Prius is faster than a porche despite what the data says. Cause it sure feels like I'm going fast!

Fair enough, but remember, my post from data-bass was to help you in regards to what you should be getting out of your system. I wouldn't rely on my laptop speakers to reproduce what's on that disc, but that's because I know what they're capable of. Not only does your subs have roll-off but everything in your equipment chain does so as well. Good luck

Considering human hearing can't really distinguish frequencies below 20hz, subwoofers that can go below 20hz are mostly irrelevant. So my argument is - Expendables 3 has weak bass because it's too low for the human ear to distinguish, so it's poor mixing if you ask me. There's no point in including an element like that in an audio track if you can't hear it, regardless of whether your equipment can reproduce it. It's like using a pen with invisible ink to write a letter that you can only see under certain circumstances. I'm happy that your charts show that it's there, but it still sounds poor. Overall, I thought the track sounded weak too.

You have no clue about lfe if this is your thought process.

You'd be better off with a htib

Oh, you hear it... You hear your house rumbling and you definitely feel it! If you are not experiencing 20hz and lower, you're missing out big time! My favorite is 15-20hz, what an experience!

Thank you for the condescending tone. It'll help me to remember to ignore your infantile and inflammatory posts in the future.

I feel plenty with my dual F12's. Anything more is entirely unnecessary. If I wanted to feel things anymore than I already do, I would install those ridiculous Buttkicker things in my seats.

No condescension meant. It's a fact. You claim under 20hz is bad mixing?! You don't understand what lfe is or how it works. It's That simple. You would most definitely be more pleased with a htib. It's exactly what you enjoy. I don't see how this is inflammatory.

You saying buttkicker a are rediculous is more inflammatory than what I was saying. That's for sure.

In nature (not just movie mixes), events do occur below 20Hz. Earthquakes wouldn't be so bad if nothing shook. Bombs wouldn't be as bad if it didn't blow nothing up. Same with grenades. Same with jet engines.

You CAN make an argument for SciFi movies. Who the hell knows what noise a spaceship makes going into warp. Or what a phaser really sounds like.

A door slamming or even closing is much lower than 20hz

I'm a scientist (Neuroscience to be exact) and I understand where QuiGonJosh is coming from. He relies on subjectivity over objectivity when it comes to LFE. Completely understandable. This is just a hobby and people are entitled to their opinion. We've all been there at some point.
