Yes I am. That scene seemed to really hit hard. The rest of the movie was good but that scene just stuck in my mind for bass for some reason


Watched the Hubble Imax. Wow that was nice on the shuttle takeoffs. Had to turn down the subs.

Can you point to the correct IMAX Hubble title on Amazon?
There are too many versions. I don't have/want 3D.

Usually with those IMAX titles you can play them in 2D as well.

Not singling this poster out because several have said this as well.

My PC is being wiped and reformatted, but I got my son to burn this scene from his Oppo and e-mail it to me so i could post it:



I think the flick is like the Transformers series for me in that you have to run the sub hot to get to the point.

Anyway, running the sub hot and this scene rippled the floor, big time.

I haven't been able to run SL in real time with a mic while I watch a movie yet, but I watched Green Lantern last night and I'll bet my ear lobe there's nothing below 30 Hz. Any graphs of it out there?

Correct. i dont know exactly what version my friend had (it was his copy) but i dont have 3d either. Loaded it up on the htpc with TMT5 and right on the title menu was an option to switch to 2d. Did that and it played just fine.

I just watched it and i think that was scene where red skull inject that stuff his own arm. Was pretty awesome bass scene and there is a lot others ulf scenes too. That was nice when that little plane drops on mother plane and starts his propellers. I watched it hot too, +6db sub level and bass tone+6db and receiver 50/75 volume, it was awesome in this settings, but if i run like wotw in these settings, not good idea.

Cool. I haven't picked up CA but will prolly once it's dropped in price a bit.

Still have Jurassic Park to watch first. So far, I've only watched the special features.

Report back how t-rex scene sounds. Would be cool if you could do chart from that scene, so we could compare it with fixed dts dvd.

You can make any movie sound good by turning up the bass but doesn't that defeat the purpose

Red Riding Hood - three stars. This movie was just kind of there, and so was the LFE.

Very well mixed and good sounding movie though.

The movie as a whole wasn't quite as bad as I was expecting, but it is pretty much a waste of Gary Oldman's talents.

What does a receiver volume of 50/75 translate to relative to calibrated reference level? Is the 50 volume setting reference level, lower than reference level or higher than reference level?

My old receiver used a digital absolute scale, but I knew where the calibrated reference level setting was on the display.

If I remember correctly 82 is reference on my system. It's so much easier the other way...

Wife and I watched Captain America last night. I usually keep my Outlaw LFM-1 Plus calibrated/EQ about +3dB above the mains. I had to flattening it out for this movie. I've read a plethora of reviews about the rather tepid soundtrack of this movie, in fact, being one of the weakest of the Marvel installments. And I find that interesting, because that's how I feel about Thor.

Anways...This movie was insane in both LFE, surround/sonic detail, and overall authority. I had to back down the sub and the volume knob on this one to keep the house intact. For those of you who are getting a lukewarm audio experience from this movie, you need to re-calibrate and EQ. That, or invest in better gear.

The first lab scene with Schmidt/Red Skull at the beginning, when Captain America freed the POWs and subsequent escape sequence, and the propeller bomb ships were insane. Not to mention the tactile feeling of the mass of Red Skulls big V wing ship. This is a fun and quite bombastic HD movie soundtrack. Along with being a fun and entertaining movie to boot.

My BASS rating for this movie is between 4 - 4.5 stars. Overall rating for soundtrack as a whole, would be at the bottom of the reference scale using Ralph Pott's formula.

Don't know how you are coming up with your conclusion of Captain America LFE was very week.
Also some of us have spent thousands on setting up are systems along with thousands on gear so you can't say that we need better gear, for example my show room has almost $25,000 just in subs put on WotW Hulk ECT... and the sound and bass is not even close. Just want to also let you know I can put in a cd that I used when I was Iasca world champ and hit 160db easy so I don't think it's my gear.

The guy with 1 outlaw is saying that all our gear isnt good enough...I have 6 15's dude and the house shakes when I watch a good LFE movie and captain america is not a good LFE movie. Maybe you need to learn how to set up your system if you think Thor didn't have any good bass...

Wow impressive looking. is that the first (very start of the "movie") or the second of the actual hubble repair mission? Both were impressive to me though the second (repair mission) seemed better.

^This, seriously? How old are you?



Wow..how ridiculous. All the big money rollers in here with $20,000+ HT systems getting defensive and overly sensitive about one persons opinion that doesn't happen to correspond with your own. Hmm...Therefore, I get this spew of indignant responses. Seriously, folks. It's just an opinion. Deal with it. It's all subjective. Don't let it rattle your cage. Not a big deal. I don't necessarily agree with several opinionated posts I've read in this thread, but I didn't go off on rant about. In fact, I typically just read it and move onto the next post.

^ I don't even have a subwoofer. I just yell "BOOM!" for the family when I see an explosion. Subs are WAY overrated. Saved me a couple grand that I got to spend on hookers and booze.

I won't believe yelling "Boom" is effective until I see measurements.

It was the 2nd launch for the repair mission.

The best thing about this thread is that while opinions are a matter of taste (disagreement is fine), quantity of bass is something that is backed by measurements that get posted. You really can't argue with them. If the bass is there, it's there.

I had my vocal chords covered in Unobtanium. I can hit 2hz @ 147db when I have some phlegm.
