Yosh,
Just some food for thought, the chest slam region is in the 40-90Hz region. In a room with concrete floors and walls, the pressure vessel gain coupled with ported subs like the OS's will...

Ugh. Just watched X-Men DoFP. Enjoyed the movie, story (miles above TF4) and action overall. The bass on the other hand, was a HUGE letdown. So many missed opportunities.
