Listening level: About 50% from my computer, 80% from the amp, EQ flat, sub ON, with Klipsch EQ Punch. Speakers were Fusion 10 Pure. The room was small, almost near-field listening. Result: Punchy but full bass, especially bass drum, overall sound was med loud/loud.
The intro was moderately loud featuring bass drum kicks. The BD was very full, but not sharp. It sounded very accurate to me like what a bass drum should sound like, just louder (I am a drummer). The snare was very clear, you could hear the overtones and ringing where the snare is tuned moderately soft with no damping.
Thirty seconds into the song the ride cymbal is subdued with most sound coming from drums and bass guitar. The sound is VERY full, the bass is not muddy at all. The rhythm guitar sound is distorted, but from the musician, not from the speakers. The speakers actually played the distortion sound very cleanly, if that makes any sense, it did not grate on the ears.
The solo vocal voice was mixed almost into the background with instruments in the foreground, but the words were very clear, easy to hear. There is no question the drums are punchy, especially the bass drum which doubles the bass guitar line. The more loud, the more punchy, without top end compression of the sound. Turning the volume on the computer up to 3/4 the sound becomes massive, very full, rattles the chest cavity but does not hurt the ear.
Smitty: Your note to me for this song was for me to "Really focus if you feel the punch." Focusing was NOT necessary, the punch was always
there, very apparent, hitting me in the middle of my chest. It was impossible to ignore.
