I have a pair of the 55s up front, 45s in the rear and a 65 as a center in a 13x14 x9 room and these speakers are great for movies, but really shine with music. The clarity and bass will surprise you

I'm usually able to tolerate a bad movie with an awesome track, but as good as the bass was in that movie, I couldn't sit through it and I skipped through most of it. Is the scene you're talking...

Exodus was a flop for me, but my guess would have to be that the bass present must be in the ULF category, unless that movie was one of those that you had to raise the sub level to experience it, my...

Just finished Jupiter Ascending on vudu and this should make up for the recent drought. The movie was ok, but the bass was nice and deep. The bass wasn't as loud as Interstellar, but Interstellar...

Yup! Although, I'm not sure if a 3d blu ray player is required since I have a 3d player connected to a non 3d tv and those discs play in 2d automatically. I would think it wouldn't matter
