Do people find the unused screen area in a commercial cinema acceptable, since you're paying $8.50+ a ticket for that square footage?

Is it okay only because they use curtains to mask the unused...

Roxul is also not good against concrete. In cold climates you need a vapor retarder like XPS foam (which you can laboriously rip to the stud cavities and seal with foam/caulk) or spray foam.

For bass, just consider that a couple 8" woofers will be a fraction of the displacement of a 15" woofer. The few watts that a typical 100w per channel amp can provide to low bass is a small fraction...

I meant at the MLP, and I drew the line at 12 feet. More recently I realize in most rooms it's 3db double distance, instead of 6db. So that should allow more speakers on the list.

Conversely, I...

The 6328 looks like a small to medium -field monitor. It would likely be at 106dB peak at 12 feet in an untreated room, but I'd say 103dB for less distortion. It's an 8" woofer.

I won't add...

If almost all ported subs naturally roll off well-above 10Hz, then your list would have almost all ported subs on it.

Since this clip requires the very best subs in the world, or many multiples of decent subs, maybe subwoofer assessment SHOULD include how the sub didn't die or make bad noises? :-)

Before I claimed my subs played that easily, I'd measure the output of the soundtrack. If the SPL level isn't as encoded, if there are tons of harmonics, then, it's distorting in those ways.
