I've got a SVS PB12-NSD which from what I read before I bought it was good to 20Hz before it starts to drop off and that 18Hz was possible depending on the room. The room I use it is about 1,500 cubic feet which is rather small but it's hard to decipher which movies here are going to be good for my system and which are going to seem empty because my sub can't play those lower frequencies.

Will the gain and/or volume I listen to movies have an effect on the bass I hear? I watch movies at varying levels though typically from -12 to -18, in rase cases I will listen at -7 to -10.

Yes I meant run time not extension.

I used to run the PB10-NSD and have a similarly sized room. so have a pretty good idea what your system is capable of. Lots of factors come into play when you don't have full-bandwidth capability and trying to determine what will sound good in your room. I remember hearing about how great the F-ing Irene scene from Black Hawk Down was, and when I had the SVS I just didn't understand it. Now that I am pretty close to full-bandwidth, I do.

If there's lots of content below the tuning frequency of your sub, you will simply not experience it.

Here's ITS vs WOTW

I don't know about anyone else, But when the dual UXL 18's get fired up, it puts a smile on my face every time. My wife told me the one day I was watching a movie, you do know the patio outside is shaking right? Yes, Yes I do..lol

I truly felt like I was in the center of the Glade and all the creaking and moaning of the maze as it shifted was extraordinary.

The bass complimented everything quite well and was clean and dug down pretty low.

Definitely has a place at the table when it comes to reference discs.

I will definitely say it is worth the purchase. I was slightly pissed at the end of the movie though that I couldn't immediately slide the second and 3rd installments in right after one another. I actually really enjoyed this storyline and the soundtrack was absolutely SUPERB.

I find this talk on how good the bass was in the Maze Runner interesting because when I saw it in the theatre I walked out a little disappointed with the bass so I wrote it off as a great LFE movie.

Now with all these reports stating that it has great bass I'm beginning to think that perhaps the theatre's was lacking in it's bass presentation. This shouldn't surprise me because I like the audio in my HT a lot better than the local theater's.

Looks like it's time to bring the Maze Runner home for a spin.

Well, from a bass perspective it wasn't too shabby, but the overall soundtrack and use of surrounds was absolutely fantastic. I guess I should have been more detailed.

That I did notice in the theater, the audio seemed decent. I'm sure in my setup I will find your assessments to be true. I'm looking forward to hearing it in my HT.

So no more charts? Or did everyone go to databass? I miss all the charts that use to be posted. That one guy use to be so active years ago. JBL was his name i think. Not only did he post charts everyday, he posted the re directed bass from all channels. I didn't even know what that was until he explained it to me. This thread is not the same anymore.

I just finished The Maze Runner and the bass was intense.

Yep Maze Runner was great all around...Not quite Oblivion but pretty good...definitely one to add to the collection.

Hang on....databass?

Working with Transformers - Age of Extinction now....which chapter you choose for bass?
Flageborg's Avatar Flageborg 01:49 PM 12-30-2014
A strong 2....weak 3 - at most

Tranformers - Age of Extinction - Chapter 21

chapter 21 certainly wasn't the only area of monster bass in this one. and a strong 2, weak 3? i don't know that i agree with that.

Didn't get to watch tonight due to date night. But heard THE EQUALIZER is unfiltered!

Can't wait for tomorrow night to give it a spin heard its a great movie too

It's a forum that does charts like here. I didn't watch my bluray yet so i don't know what scenes are good.

That doesn't look weak to me. Some strong mid frequencies and it extends pretty nicely down low. Thanks for the chart.

I know it's an older movie, but I watched Oblivion this afternoon. That was an amazing experience and was a good example of why I love this hobby.

there's a fair amount, and what's there is really well done. Sure it's not like into the storm or army of Frankenstein where the entire movie is just rumbling.
Trigen's Avatar Trigen 06:38 AM 12-31-2014
Can any one with "The Grudge 3" (US movie) blu ray test out a few time codes:

6m-7m
19m-20m
36m-37m
1h2m-1h3m30sec
1h9m-1h10m
1h16m-1h17m

Obviously the bass is transient within these time codes and the movie is not a bass movie.

Thanks in advance.

PS This is what I get at around 6m30

Damn....Earth to Echo..I did not expect that...AVR ws set to -15db and sub trim set at 0. Crazy and brutal at the end of the movie. I thought my house was going to implode..Glad my wife wasn't home to experience that. I am now going to go check my house for structural damage.

Glad you saw Oblivion, and it's great. But an older movie? It premiered April of 2013. Half the stuff in my freezer is older than Oblivion.

Hey Brian, I seen The Equalizer at the movies and it was kinda boring, it was OK, just an average action movie. Speaking of that movie, we go up and take care of my wife parents once a month and me and my daughter usually slip out in the evening and goto the movies or something to get away for a bit. We went and saw Interstellar last weekend and I have to say that the theater we went to sounded incredible. Bass was great and the surround and front stage was loud and clear. It has been a long time since I have been impressed with a movie theater's sound. I believe the theater was a Digiplex, again they certainly understand sound and did a good job with their theaters.

Interstellar sounds like it will be promising. I feel asleep as usual, but from what I heard sounded really good.

I watched the Lego Movie with my kids tonight and was surprised to hear all the bass. I don't think it was hitting very deep but there seemed to be a good amount of it.

Ahhh yes, Oblivion. Now there is a movie that IMO delivers the best overall audio experience that can be had in a movie. Excellent mixing of the channels and very good bass. I agree Allen, it's what makes this hobby fun.

weird. I just finished equalizer. I thought it was outstanding!!

Not to mention the sound design was fabulous. And three or four scenes of room bending DEEP bass

Very much enjoyed and worth the blind buy hands down

"Happy New Year" to all of the bass heads on this thread !! It has been a fun ride for 2014 with movies with bass. I think that 2015 will be even better with the new DTS:X arriving to battle Dobly Atmos. Heck yeah, I'm ready !!!

I agree and enjoyed that film as well( good acting). However I still give the nod to Man On Fire for overall movie.
