Actually, it’s a tympani drum, which only goes down to around 70 Hz or so. Where the hard slam comes from is the underlying synthesizer. At the Irvine audio show, Deep Sea Sound’s 24-inch monster...

A couple of nice highlights at “The Show” in Irvine, California were the Magnepan exhibits. Oddly, there were two exhibitors, and both had the .7 Maggies and only the .7s. The larger exhibit had...

Mike Oldfield’s “Shabda” from “Music of the Spheres”: With the right sub, it slams the walls very hard (should hear studs creak). Also should hear cycle separation. Starts around the 2 minute 12...
