Oh, there are several notes there, but so low that you can only feel them. There's quite a range of low frequency there.

No offense, but that is not even close to being anywhere near being the ultimate test tune.

I know, but you have to admit, it does shake the whole house, and the title got your attention. wink.gif

Not a bad bassline, but the tune was awfully repetitive. For some tunes that have even heavier bass, check out Basstronics' "Bass I Love You", the Subsonics Breaks remix of Acen's "Trip II the Moon", DJ Magic Mike's "How Low Can You Go", and Mr Oizo's "Inside the Kidney Machine". Those tunes will destroy your subs if cranked high enough. Of course, there's a boatload of other D'n'B, Dubstep, Reggea, and Miami Bass tunes that have gobs of bass in them.

Just heard it! That track is great for finding all the rattles in your house. LOL Not as impressive as "Bass I Love You", though. That made my recliner move like a massage chair.eek.gif

I used to listen to this a lot when I had 15 inch woofers in the house before I blew them and another set of 15 inch speakers. I would blast bass cds for 3 hours a day and a lot of rap when I was a teen.

WOW-this one was by far my favorite, and it exposed a ton of rattles throughout the house smile.gif.

You may check out "Old School" deep bass, however it's much more musical for my money. It doesn't have the occasional bass "bombs" that Bass I Love You has, but I can listen to the entire release, .. start to finish.

I can listen to some Dubstep, but it's not my favorite. What I really like is Crystal Method. The release I prefer is maybe 15 years old or so, Las Vegas, I really dig the track Trip Like I Do, She's My Pusher, High Roller.

If you buy an Hsu sub, they give you a cd.

One of my long time favorites! Bassnectar is amazing.

"Some Chords" by Deadmau5 is also awesome: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEQMkzjcLEA

"Sofi Needs a Ladder" is awesome and really, really fun to listen to with your eyes closed in stereo. Oh man do I love this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDndZn0YPdI&feature=relmfu

For something truly absurd, yet a little hilarious, try: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfwxT_khR9s

On the Bass Mekanik album "King of Bass", go to about the 1:10 mark on track 7 "Suck My Bass".

Only if you buy a VTF or ULS. And that link only has test tones, not the music that comes on the CD.

Sorry but that track is weak. Here is an infrasonic adventure... something worthy of being called 'ultimate'. "The Joy of minimal" by Dub King; if you feel it you're in good shape bass-wise. Soooo much deeper.

As I posted above, not just any sub, either. Only the VTF and ULS lines.
