The sound FX thunder doesn't give any line or comment on its recording levels although when looking at Krypto's subs I would say there is definitely some hot levels in there but nothing to do damage. Now the Kunzel track I sent him it definitely looks like the canon recording is pretty severe and thats why on the cd it says it "may damage speakers so be warned."

I have played that song may times and can turn my sub up pretty dang loud. But my sub wont play the lower hz region so it cant really get damage unless I turn all the levels up and amp. The settings now allow me to be able to crank anything sub wise.

But if your subs can reach below 15hz or even 7hz then you might need to caution yourself. But still just dont turn everything up to reference and then play unless you have a video camera.

Can we get a spectral of the gunfire? (from the Bluerey, not my recording LOL)

Inception, after the train goes down the street then gunfire ensues...the final burst from the automatic rifle

Man gets squashed between two cars is the scene what you asked in this chart. I just label that wrong when i did that chart.

No, it's when he shoots, before gets smashed between two cars. It's just mislabelled in that chart.

What about:
Appleseed.
Vexille
Pandorum
Advent Children
Eden Log
Outlander
Daybreakers
Wanted
Afterlife
Replacement Killers
Doomsday
Crank
Final Destination series
Surrogates

If I could get the darn Spectrum Lab software to work, I'd be glad to check Appleseed for you. Darn thing just doesn't like my mobo's onboard, apparently. I've even tried converting stuff to wav format, but it still won't pick it up. Grrrrrr.

Now that I've upgrade from a wireless G PCI card to a wireless N usb adapter, I may be able to shoehorn in my X-Fi card in and see if that helps...

If anyone has access to it, I would check out the mask. I just watched the bluray and the movie for the first time in a long time and there was two big bass moments in it that happened during the cocobongo scene where carrey is the mask. The first one is where he first sees diaz as the mask you see his heart jumping out and the second is where his tongue hits the table.


They probably aren't 15hz as my THT's roll off much higher then that but the scene did surprise me. If anything its worth watching it again to see Carey at his prime.

Thanks StarKiller

I am also wondering about RED and Red Planet since my subs really move on Red Planet.

Just watching Replacement Killers Extended cut and great action movie but some LOL moments there also aka Director goofs.

I.e. Chow and Mira when in car and its raining outside and car has no sunroof.
When camera focuses on Chow Yun Fat talking about his Father you notice rain falling to the left aka inside car between Mira and Chow and when camera focuses on Mira there is only rain falling outside.....lol!

Did you check your soundcard settings...especially the recording?

What settings there are to check, yeah. I tried everything I could adjust on the soundcard side, then tried everything on the spectrum lab setting side. I probably spent two hours toggling every option to see if that would enable the sound, and a couple more googling the issue. So far, no dice.

Here's my I/O page. Lemme know if I made a stupid mistake somewhere, or if there's something else you would like to see.

Everything should be ok in that page, though i use 48000 sound card sample rate and 16bits/sample, but your's should work too. Can you post your fft settings page?

Those scenes was not so special, there was better scenes, especially the scene where bad guy starts the paper machine, nice quick sweep to 20hz and bad guy spits bullets(bass down to 15hz and other shootin scenes where good too). But yeah, the audio was quite surprise.

Yeah, I tried those, but for S&G's I've matched them to yours. Here's the FFT page.

Thanks again for taking a look

Speaking of a 2nd look at movies...

Back in '01, when Pearl Harbor came out, I was just in transition to sealed, but was still using my 2-ported 1x18" EVX-180A subs. I thought it was pretty spiffy back then.

I haven't watched since the transition, never having known what I missed with the high 20s Hz tuned porteds and I decided to give it a watch tonight.

Man, was I surprised at the ULF. I'm currently running a single stack of Blackbirds (a stack of 4-2x15s with 2 high juice tracking SMPS amps). With the sort of percussive ULF content found in this movie, with machine gun fire and quick explosions, the stack causes the whole floor to ripple.

I was watching at around -5dBRL when I turned on SL. All of these graphs reflect that level except for the first graph, which I went back afterward and bumped to Ref Level.

Attack begins, torpedo and strafing...

Zeroes strafing...

Hospital gets bombed...

"It's a dud!"...

The Arizona gets hit...

2 heroes take off as bombs explode...

Peak hold of bombs exploding in the distance...


I'd written this one off as having no ULF. I was mistaken because when I watched it I had subs that couldn't play it back. It definitely has strong content to 3 Hz.

Nothing critical in those too, but you get better quality in your charts(when they start to work), if you rise your decimate imput by divisor to somewhere like 12 and fft input size to 16384. I'm pretty clueless now, where the problem might be?

WOW.......I just found a new BR to buy now....Thanks Bossa

Dang....I'll install that sound card this weekend and see if I get lucky. Thanks for taking a look though.

Thanks Bosso, I've been claiming that since '02 and no one believes me. My first HT subwoofer setup, Pearl Harbor made me fall in love. I almost got it 4 days ago, saw it at Walmart for $15... better than the $50 I spent on it back on '02. Next time Im at wally-world, it's mine...then of course vids to come.
post #418 of 568
*laughs*

Don't you guys just love finding new stuff in our movies that we didn't know it was there. Heheh. Adorable.

Pearl Harbor has been a reference demo disk for me since it came out on dvd. Fantastic audio track! When I got it on BR.... oh, man! The SQ difference from 768k DTS to +4mbps PCM was night and day. I pi** myself laughing when people do the, "ohh, there really isnt any differences from lossless to a good lossy track. In fact, here's that link that Filmmixer likes to push that has Dolby and DTS test their own codecs...blah blah blah and they say there isn't a difference." Oh... well, then it's clear cut then. *sigh* Yeesh.

Bosso, might want to take a stab at Titan A.E. next.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgcDxm1HI60

Enjoy.

WOW. My feet are frozen, ive got to go around the house and put stuff back. I'm gonna put that last track in this post all by itself. I thought Jurassic Lunch was wicked awesome, but then I did that last one. Nuts. Insane.

I haven't done vids or had the system up for what feels like 2 weeks. it's just too much. Too loud, too much vibration and distracting noise. My ears hurt right now, thats never happened from a house stereo to me before. NUTS.

I get that most of us here have solid LFE, so most of us here have stuff around the house that shakes rattles and rolls...nothing new. However the lower the frequency things flop and wobble much louder than things up higher that buzz and rattle. So the noise itself I think is louder, plus with the ULF youre getting the loud flopping and wobbling of objects, but youre not hearing the subwoofers...it's not masked. So i feel my vibaration problem is a little worse than the average bear. On top of that the massive flexing of heavy dense walls is causing actual damage, so Ive been trying to call a cease fire on my home until I can install a huge door over the entry way to the rest of the house. Things are falling apart fast.
