Ohh yer gonna enjoy Elysium! I'm thinking that movie is a 5 star or close to it. Most the movie is infrasonic bass.

Hunter.. What about the storyline? Is it a good movie? I'm thinking of buying it instead of renting.

Can you post a post number as I have the AVS page set to 100 posts per page so we show the current page to be #128.
post #12728 of 16108
Does anyone know of a graph for the train arrival scene in the beginning of Polar Express? Not the deepest, but extremely convincing bass/sound design in this scene and I am curious to see a graph. Did a quick search, but did not find anything.

Sweet!

Thanks! It looks like the sound track was spec'd to our subwoofer system as we're golden for anything >12Hz and have usable to about 10Hz.

My mini dsp unit has a button called "bypass" on the user interface on my Mac. It was a really cool experiment and really showed the benefit. And you know it's a drastic difference when the wife said one of them was way better.

I did this same experiment years ago and came to the same conclusions as you. I certainly respect the purist philosophy, but a nice house curve (more like a shelf curve in my case) makes things MUCH more exciting IMO, especially on my carpet over concrete basement bunker. cool.gif I do use a flat EQ setting on my SMS for music (and shut off my Buttkickers), but movies I like a little bump down low.

Interesting. I am a bit curious about your music and bass opinions. I find music severely lacking I turn up 9-15db for music but only like 5db for movies. Both with my curve though. I mean if I am not at least 9db hot then the kick drum becomes literally none existent. A synthesizer is gone and the bass guitar as well. smile.gif

That is awesome. I don't have miniDSP. What frequency or range of frequency did you boost for your house curve, just curious.

Even though I use my flat response for music, I do run it hot by 3-4db for the reasons you mention. I like to feel that kick drum assuming it is prominent enough in the recording/mix to begin with which is unfortunately not a given with live shows especially. There can be such a wide swing in recording/mix quality in these live concert blus! eek.gif I still have NEVER found a Rush recording/mix I like which is unfortunate as I like the band. frown.gif

My curve slants upward then flat behind at 30hz. I used a filter option called a low shelf filter to provide the platform for the shape I wanted. There are numerous variables that can be changed for different results.



And 1/6


That is a result of the low shelf filter. I applied cuts everywhere else to present Audyssey with its best possible line and less to boost which would negatively affect decay times. I did boost 4dB at 15 Hz but you're not going to get adequate decay times at 15 Hz anyway so what the heck smile.gif
My JTR triple eights should be here in the next couple weeks, gonna recalibrate everything

I'd rent it man... It's audibly and visually great, but I didn't think it was really worth watching again. I think I'd like to see a few scenes on a demo disk down the road though.

Yea.. I don't like buying movies that's a dud in the story line. Like IMO, Hot Fuzz, was dud one for me. Maybe others no. The bass in HF was to over exaggerated. I don't know if that's the word I'm trying to describe it. Even district 9 has a kind of stupid story line. I just hate getting to hyped out on a flick and loose money at the same time..

In that case, I'd also recommend renting Elysium first. I thought it was an OK movie with great ELF, but a lot of folks thought the acting stank (especially Jodie Foster's). I didn't think the acting was bad, the actors just weren't given the greatest material to work with, but I certainly didn't feel that they did a bad job of it. A few folks also didn't like the political angle of the movie, but that was another thing I didn't find as bad as some did. It just wasn't the greatest movie. Decent demo for the bass and visuals, but not really something I would rewatch multiple times just because I enjoyed it that much.

The movie had no depth to it, I was rather disappointed all round.
post #12746 of 16108
Elysium had stunning picture but no extension.

Ever since I started using Audyssey XT32, I feel like the bass is much more accurate but a little less fun.
post #12747 of 16108
^^ which is why I run my sub 6db hot. Lots of folks bump up sub level after xt32 calibration.
post #12748 of 16108
I think I went up 3db myself after calibration. Might try another 3 and see how I like it...

Or do a house curve if you have sub EQ like a minidsp. I have the Antimode Dual Core. And all it is just push of the remote bottom and the graphs on the Antimode shows the lift. You can do lifts in any desired hz range. Man, the beauty of sub EQ's..

Yeah, run a house curve for sure.
