At what point do you stop critiquing your system and start blaming the movie soundtrack....

I watched Battle LA, i like bass, and stupid action movies. I then watch Priest, and found the bass had one note and a bit lack luster....

Dont hang me out for liking stupid space alien movies LOL, only to start trusting my system......

I don't know about others, but after I went through the process of calibrating my system to be sure it's correct. Some movies just lack in the bass department.

Anyways, if you haven't already, make sure the system is calibrated correctly. There are quite a few tools to help you out with this.

His system is most certainly calibrated.

As mproper notes, some movies just aren't that great in the bass department. Even some movies get praise for it (Super 8) yet are really lacking compared to others. I really noticed this when I went from my single Tempest 15" to dual 18" LLT's. There were some that sounded not that great after I had super clean, effortless bass. And hheeeyyy wait. Shouldn't this be in the subwoofer section?

Some movies are just a waste of time with no action or intense room shaking effects. Once your audio system is calibrated, then it's time to play only those movies that are going to really satisfy!!!

"If you lend someone $20.00 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it!"

Mirage BPS-400 Subwoofer

The amp for my quad 18" IB is in a separate room. The remote to turn it on can be a little finicky and sometimes does not turn on - especially when it was new to me. So a movie like Super 8 ,or others that do not deliver in the ULF, makes me get up out of my chair to verify the subs are on by touching the drivers. Never have that problem with Battle LA, you KNOW the subs are on.

Among those of us who pay close attention to the strength of weakness of ULF on action movie BDs' HD audio tracks, I agree that Super 8 was puzzlingly weak in that regard but that Battle LA, stupid though it may have been otherwise, had awe inspiring LFE.
