Even though I would like better extension with PR, it is one of my bass favorites as well. The bass that is there hits HARD and in all the right spots. Not to mention as far as pure bass quantity, it is one of the very best. Throw in kick ass 3d and it is a GREAT HT ride IMO.

WotW is still king. HTTYD is a great bass movie too. I'll admit, I need to rewatch PR now that I own it, but I wasn't thrilled with it the first time. I know the newest Godzilla had my subs rocking throughout the whole movie and had similar extension to PR.

Could not agree more on Pacific Rim.

Have you tried The Incredible Hulk? That's what heavy creatures moving around are supposed to sound like, in my opinion.

Yeah, it had some but not enough to stand out. Having said that I guess I should add I liked the over all audio in general. But for me the LFE was lacking.

That's a fair statement. It isn't TIH by no means.

Huh?! Total recall 2012 was a very bass heavy movie

http://data-bass.ipbhost.com/index.php?/topic/12-the-low-frequency-content-thread-films-games-music-etc/page-20#entry567

Total Recall:

Level - 3 Stars (109.24dB composite)
Extension - 5 Stars (3Hz)
Dynamics - 4 Stars (25.33dB)
Execution - 5 Stars - Full bandwidth track. My fav part was the initial shoot out at the Rekall location, with the wild pulls and zooms throughout the room, as well as the car chase.

Overall - A solid 4.25 Stars.

Recommendation - Buy for the Bass, Rent for the story. You may want to buy it, but not everyone is into dystopian thrillers.

This is a full bandwidth track, but held back a bit in level and dynamics. This may have been a home mix, or not. Hard to tell.

I'll get Total Recall aswell, shortly after Enders Game.
I have already seen The Incredible Hulk. It was good but i would just prefer to see a movie haven't seen yet as of right now. I will revisit Hulk later when the Skar ZVX 18's get installed in a few weeks here.

Anybody do a spectrum graph of The Interview?

Four scenes in particular, had some really potent bass.
The test launch of an ICBM, two scenes involving tanks firing shells and the firing of a 50 cal machine gun,
through a locked door, which shredded to pieces soldiers standing on the other side.
Nice blood splatter in that scene.

You could really feel the heft and weight of the explosions in this one.
Gave my sealed subs a good workout.

This is actually misleading. While some receivers such as Onkyo default to having the DRC function on auto. Auto means just that it will only turn on DRC if the disc is authored to flag the DRC on. From my recollection the only wrongly authored disc that does this is the first Ironman movie, the fix is the manually turn off DRC.

Don't forget Cloverfield. These 3 are the holy grail of deep hard hitting bass. And to me Cloverfield may be my favorite because of 2 scenes . The subway attack and helicoptor crash are 2 head crunching scenes of holy **** bass.

Ah yes.. Cloverfield. Forgot about that one. Looks like I have to do a respin since I haven't scene that over a year ago. Btw, it's been awhile for any recent movies out that's been hitting the singles..

That is so strange I wonder why I'm missing the bass in this movie. That's a head scratcher, you guys are experiencing it and I'm not. Maybe I need to go in and check my settings.

Doesn't matter I bought the movie because I think it's a fun one to watch, but then again I'm a sucker for sic-fi. Since I own it I'll have plenty of opportunities to find the missing bass. Glad you guys say it has it, I'll pay closer attention next time I watch it.

Ah Oblivion, I think this is one of the best movies ever for audio. IMO it is the go to movie to test out both the surround sound as well as bass. Good call Kini.

FWIW That's a car audio sub and those don't always work well for home theater (less room gain) use plus it has an FS of ~40Hz so this is less than ideal. It drops off below 30Hz like a rock. Considering the cost of that Skar you'd be better off going with multiple Stereo Integrity HT18's or one Stereo Integrity HST18 IMO.

Lower level may be the issue for you Eighteens with Total Recall (although I'm yet to see this myself) so boost the subs (run them hotter than normal) when watching next time. The Incredible Hulk is definitely a benchmark track I don't think anyone here, no matter what the setup they have, would disagree. Other bass heavy films that I would recommend if you haven't seen them already.

Tron Legacy
Dredd (boost level a bit for this one too)
Olympus Has Fallen
Hellboy2
Gone with the Wind (just kidding)
