I just watched Elysium. Well-engineered bass, lots of different textures, never overdone or exhausting, like it was in Pacific Rim. I think District 9 was a much better movie, also that Jodie Foster would look great in black latex, brandishing a riding-crop, scowling, in the mood to make an example outta some gimped-out, pathetic dog-man...
Where was I?
Oh yeah. I have a weird issue with the Elysium disc, where when I'm playing it, my receiver (Denon AVR-891) loses its video overlay capability. It displays all status messages on its little front facing window, and that's that. No other disc does this (or has ever done this). Any ideas? It breaks topic but you guys pay attention to the fine details, and many of you have watched this movie, so...
Hi all. I have an SVS PC12-Plus on the way. And I wanted to know of some demo scenes for ultra low frequency. Before I set it up the lowest I could go was 24hz now I'm gonna dip down to 16. I was going to watch Tron Legacy and Star Wars A New Hope just because they are 2 of my favorites for overall sound.
But can someone tell me of some movies or scenes that would be very good test demos for sub 20z ultra low frequency?

All some of my personal favorites. There are a TON more as well. But those stick out to me
He did say sub 20Hz.
WOTW Pod emergence has full spectrum from single digits all the way up. The lightning strikes are higher level below 20Hz. The prize for ELF (Extremely Low Frequency, under 20Hz) in WOTW is the basement airplane crash. If your setup doesn't do high SPL single digit Hz, this scene isn't very impressive at all.
U:A Super Lycan is ~30Hz
OHF Monument scene is centered about 20Hz
TIH Cop car boxing gloves does hit below 20Hz
Don't recall the other 2
WWZ grenade sweep goes from about 45-55Hz all the way down to 10Hz at fairly high level. My favorite sweep so far, on systems that can do 10Hz (or lower) WELL.
Black Hawk Down F###ing Irene scene. If your setup can't do 6-7Hz at high SPLs, this will be a fairly unimpressive scene.
FOTP plane crash barrel roll is centered about 30-35Hz
Elysium has several ELF scenes, but I don't recall which. Look for screencaps/graphs.
