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!

Hey guys, what plug in do you use with this device and mic, is PSA including a power supply for the mini DSP as well? With this particular unit what can be measured, just subs or all your subs and speakers, excuse my ignorance.
Cheers Jeff

So I have been hearing this odd sound when watching TV and Movies the last week or so. It almost sounds like "snow" when you change a old school tv to a station with no programming. I had a hard time pin pointing it because my subs blend so well it actually sounded like the noise was coming from my surround speakers. So 1 by one I turn off each sub and finally the noise goes away. Well it ended up being the sub furthest away from my LP mid wall(talk about no localization lol). I unplugged the Cable from the input and it went away. Then I plugged it into right instead of lfe and it went away then came back. So I powered it off for a few minutes and turned it back on with the cable plugged back into the LFE in and now it sounds fine?
