What I have found is that certain subwoofers sound great during gun fire, but don't seem to have quite enough "impact" when it comes to crashes, explosions, etc. This has gotten me thinking about tailoring my future demos to various specific types of scenes.
I am wondering if people have suggestions on specific types of scenes. Bear in mind that I am not necessary looking for the best bass scene of all time, but more so a showcase of differences in how subs will react to specific scene situations.
Anyone care to comment on their opinions regarding the following questions (I also would be interested in hearing about people's top 5 in any other categories I haven't thought of, and which types of scenes that people consider the most important)?
1) What is the best (small) Gun Shootout scene (e.g. pistols, uzzi's, etc.)? Underworld
, The Darknight

4) What is the best shotgun scene? The Dark Night, The punisher warzone
