Guess that explains why it didn't make the list. The rest of the movie never really struck me as a bass-heads dream, but that one scene in particular seemed pretty good. I'm surprised the LF almost never dips into the 20's.

My kids watch Cars 2 in a loop right now and I have no idea what frequency the LFE is at. But I know the whole house shakes big time at least 10 times during that movie. There are some VERY loud LFE sequences in it. Actually quite surprising how many there are...

Has it ever been metered ?

Just curious because I am still waiting on my pair of 21's and getting anxious is all.

Was Krypto getting XXX's?

It can vary between 90 to 120db, depending on how loud the action is; with an average of about 105db.

Any louder than that (115-130db) above 30hz and it is just painful and not a fun movie experience, for most people.

It did pressurize the room, but not nearly as much as it would in a box. In a box they will make your ceiling visibly shake, and if its a weak ceiling... potentially put some cracks in it.

99% of the bass you are hearing if from my other subwoofers & speakers.

Thanks Bass. I know they will sound better in a box but just wondered how they were open air. So now I know.

Just cant wait for my pair to come.

I was going to start up a thread of my own in order to inquire about movies that produce bettter bass below 20 hz on the DVD than on the blu ray versions. I believe this is the case with Master and Commander. Does anyone know of others?

Thanks for responding chrapladm. I do have the DTS version of The Haunting. Is the Blu ray for War Of The Worlds better of worse than the DTS version DVD?

IIRC, U:A was 30hz central with little in the way of 5-15hz content.

I have my settings on my site in a .INI file as well as the speclab download.

http://www.bossobass.com/Bossobass.com/Technical%20%28cont%29.html

Windows being what it is, some have sailed through the process and others have had glitches that needed addessed. Just scroll down to the Speclab download and note the instructions below the download link.

Thanks Bosso. Love your intro also. Was a bit confused how to use the software still. Can I use my PS3 player to send the audio to te computer of should I just send the audio from the LFE output on the AVR to the computer?

I have an internal BR player but I dont seem to have anything that will play the discs.rolleyes.gif So I am just trying to use what I have to get started.

Yes and yes. You can do it either way as long as you have connections that will work from the player/AVR to the PC. The best method is to avoid the roll off of the AVR by using a digital out from the player, but that's of course dependent on whether or not you have a digital in on your SC.

Yeah, you need Blu-ray software in order to view Blu-ray titles on a computer.

I only have 1/8 inputs for my computer. Headphone size. They are the same size inputs for the headphones and the mic input. I guess it would be best if I just got BR software for my computer. I tried to open a music file in SL but it would only look for test name and .wave files. I don't have any wave files. So I am wondering how can I analyze music files?

Building an infinite baffle subwoofer with (4) 15" drivers. It will be in addition to the 2 in-room 12" subs and take over at 25Hz. Not only will the Blackhawk chopper lift off, so will my chair.
What is the lowest frequency a Blu-ray Disc can produce?

I hear you...I too am in the midst of an IB build. Eight 15" drivers, but my room is quite large.

To see how deep different discs will go you need to read earlier posts. You won't be disappointed.

I can't wait to be done! Lots more work yet though.

Hey Dave, my (2) 12" and soon (4) IB 15" in an 11.5 x 25 room, do I have more liftoff than you?

My room is 18' wide at it's narrowest (more like 24ish), and 33' long with a 9' ceiling. So roughly twice the size? So maybe I do need twice the piston area just to compete...

Here's my room layout:

You can see roughly where the IBs are going and using the room at the top of the page for the rear of the drivers. I've changed the room a little so that I can get the IBs a little farther apart and more ideally placed relative to my mains.

I have rebuilt the entire "front" wall and that little closet that is home to my audio gear. This also makes that back room a little larger since I got rid of the other closet back there, and moved my gear closet further off to the side in my main room. It's tough to describe, but as soon as I committed to a 2x10 wall for structural reasons, the gloves came off (or went on) to go all out once and for all. The 2x10 wall allows me also to completely conceal and protect the drivers.

Since I'm doing an array, I am doing everything possible to reduce structural compliance and increase the mass in the wall. Each array structure will weight in excess of 600 lbs easy. I am adding eight 6' concrete lintels to the sides of the arrays inside the double layer 5/8" drywall. There will be a lot of mass, and completely invisible.



The concrete Lintels:

Reminds me of the work that went into building my room. Will probably need the plumber to move a pipe in order to position the IB enclosure.

The D-B forum has a downloadable excel file that I think you can sort by extension?
