The funny thing is I had someone come over to my house the day after I broke the window to talk about building 6 more othorns. I had made the appointment before the window broke.

Mila Kunis

I went to see Jupiter Ascending in Chicago because I think Mila Kunis is stunning. Unfortunately, the movie was just dreadful, despite her looking great in a blue dress at one moment. It was...

That is very true Luke. It likely doesn't help matters that I have the 2 subs stacked on top of each other, bringing the horn that much closer to the window. The window seemed on the verge of...

Godzilla 2014

The Ferris version was definitely the better film, but the bass peaks in the 2014 Godzilla were extremely impressive

I have 6 subs in my basement home theater and I was considering adding more. Since setting up my home theater in my basement I have noticed that my windows tended to rattle, so I sealed them off as...

Ender's Game

Ender's Game has some epic bass in my opinion. Huge SPL in many scenes!

The Last Airbender

The Last Airbender has some excellent bass! There is one extremely potent bass scene in particular close to the end involving a whole lot of water :)

Annabelle

I saw Annabelle in the theaters when it first came out and it got me hooked on the horror genre. I had not seen The Conjuring before the movie, but I loved it anyway. Since that time, I have...

Clarfication

Certainly GP. My idea was to simply find the maximum SPL during full movie playback with the exact same settings for determining the most demo-able scenes in the movie. When I say 115 db reference,...

Open Range

I got super curious about the UK version versus the US version today, so I ordered the UK version today. Not sure why the Region 0 and Region 2 discs have THX and the US version does not.

Total Recall

Hi Brian,


I have 4 ported subs that are each tuned to 11 hz, and my preference is to have scenes that take advantage of bass content from 5 hz to 30 hz. 13 hz is the sweet spot in my system. ...

This thread

Hi Brian,


This thread has rated Total Recall 4 Stars. My ears tell me that there is very little bass going on compared to many films at the same volume. Spectrum Lab would appear to agree. ...
