Thanks for the heads up with the World War Z scene (grenade), have to get it just for that.

Thanks for the tip hope to get to it soon. The scene in World War Z is around the 1 hour 5 minute mark and it is the second grenade going off with a shock wave effect. Great demo material.

And just shortly after that grenade explosion, the helicopter going down and exploding is pretty darn cool to "feel", as well.

The World War Z grenade is the craziest sweep I've heard yet in a movie. It's well worth experiencing for anyone that has a good sub system out there.

Glad to hear HB, I wish you and your misses all the best, I understand disability, have been on it for several years myself, the only way I've been able to do what I do is because of my Father who is a generous elderly man, I take care of him now that he is 85 years old and took care of my Mother as well for two years with Alzheimer's disease. I don't know if this is allowed but God Bless you and the misses, you are in my prayers. Enjoy my friend...........
Most Sincerely, Jeffrey Nordi

Well I"m picking up World War Z today to see how it sound with my dual XS30SEs, will let you know. Still haven't decided on the third yet, maybe after today (post WWZ) I will decide to get the 3rd
Cheers Jeff

Since we've been talking about our misses I thought I would share a pic of me and her by changing my avatar. Enjoy, she is my best friend and never gives me any slack about what I do when it comes to this crazy hobby of ours, I surely enjoy her.

Hey ahblaza, I recently started a thread looking for placement advice and got a bunch of great tips to help make my multiple subs really sound great. Though you might want to check it out!
