Earlier there was talk about the bass in this movie and the 30hz cutoff but...it didn't matter...the bass in this movie is insane and intense...especially when the MUTO's are involved.
I can't wait for my 215's because this will be one of the movies I'll use to test with.
My boy and I just finish watching Godzilla in 3D
.. Before I state this impression. Just wanna put up where my current settings at now. On the AVR.. FL @ -4.5 74-76db on the rat meter. set to large.
FR @ -4.0 " "db inuke 12 and 6 is about 3/8's on the knob
CC @ -4.0 ". "db Set to small Xover 80hz
Surrounds set to small " " "
Sub @ -3.5.. Speaker power amps gains on all 4 S2's are @-16
My last graph posted a few pages back (flat) now has a 6db HC through the antimode 2.0 from 6hz to 60hz.
L/R has butterwworth 18 db slope HPF. DEQ @ 170hz, 5db gain, Bp type.
Watched Godzilla at -2. CRAZY friggn clean, accurate bass. With the sealed S2's off to the sides and rear. And the ported 215's up front. IMO, is a perfect combo. I got a little nauseated again. Then I knocked down my canvas panoramic photo at the room over for the second time. And for some odd reason, one of the S2's tripped its 20 amp breaker. But I don't know when that happened and what scene. I only found out when the movie was done. And when I shut down I manually turn off all the amps on the S2's. I don't leave them on. I don't understand. Will give my electrician a call tomorrow. As all the breakers are brand new.
Anyway the 215's running the LR full range adds more punch and depth to the front stage. I compared from switching small to large. And I really like them set at large. Played some 2 channel today to. Popped in a xrcd Eagles. And I was taken for half hour +3 on the MV.
As it stands, I very happy with this full JTR combo. I don't know if I need anymore bass after tonight's Godzilla flick. The thought of adding more subs is deminishing. Especially since I don't have anymore dedicated 20 a circuit left. I already took the two in next room over for the Inukes. Which was supposed to be for my salt water tank. That I didn't finish. But, I found out the pumps that I'll run only needs 2 15a circuits. Which is good news for me. Lol..
Next up.. Projector and screen shopping..
Full JTR system
