This does not surprise me. Using a sealed sub that is flat to below 10 Hz, I played the descending Edge of Tomorrow opening bass sweep(30, 25, 20, 15, 10 Hz tones). To me, this is a GREAT
demo for testing out how you perceive different low frequencies. For me, the 25 and 20 Hz tones were BY FAR
the most tactile as far as shaking the floor/room/couch. The 15 Hz tone was no where near as tactile but seemed to vibrate objects in the room more. 10Hz had by far the most driver excursion. I am up 7 dB from 20 Hz down to 10, and it is barely noticeable, if at all(the 10 Hz tone).
This is not to say that I think this is an IMPRESSIVE
LFE scene. In fact I think it is rather underwhelming compared to many of the really good ones. I just think it is the best one I know of that allows you to literally determine EXACTLY what frequency does what in your room. I think there are many people who think 8 or 10 Hz produces some kind of amazing tactile LFE effect, because they watch a scene that contains content that low, and the scene is very impressive. The truth, I believe, is that the 15, 20, and 25 Hz content of the scene is what people are really noticing the most. The other stuff just provides a little
bit more icing on the cake.
So I would say the higher level response you are getting at 15 Hz could be responsible for your extra rattles. I have some more rattles to fix, that's for sure.
