The New Master List of BASS in Movies with Frequency Charts - Page 115

How big is your room?

From S&V Magazine:

Bass output (CEA-2010 standard, 2 ports open, EQ2)
Ultra-low bass (20-31.5 Hz) average: 119.2 dB
20 Hz 113.4 dB
25 Hz 122.1 dB
31.5 Hz 122.2 dB

No matter who measures it or how they measure it, the VTF-15H puts out tremendous low-frequency energy, especially for its price, and is exceeded in output by only a handful of subs currently on the market.

And you have two! Please.

Room acoustics can be very interesting. Just because the room is small does not mean you are going to get super low extension. The acoustics and positioning/listening area play a huge role here.
For example, my room with both doors open I get a lot lower extension down to 12hz or so.
Have you measured your room response?
The Immortals has an insane quantity of base but its very deep so my guess will be your current setup is lacking there but you can only tell with a SPL meter then you might be able to find a better position to increase that end.
Is well worth the effort imo.

How does Three Musketeers stack up against Ghost Protocol? Just watched TM with an Empire and it is now one of my favorite for overall audio. Tons of bass. It would be nice to see a chart from someone with measuring equipment. Amazing audio.

IMO, TM was MUCH better in terms of LFE! I was pleasantly surprised. It definitely has a couple demo worthy scenes.

Right! TM was much better than MI:GP, but still not a 5 star movie. That being the case, I cannot rate MI:GP above a 3.5. The scale must be relational, and if TM is at most a 4.5, but much better than MI:GP, how can MI:GP be considered a 4 star? It can't, in my mind.

Agreed!

They were not that far apart for me. I would probably give TM a .5 advantage overall. I thought the LFE in MI:GP was very well done. It may not be the deepest or hardest hitting, but it did hit in all the right spots and really supported the movie beautifully IMO. There are certainly better LFE movies, but there was technically nothing wrong with MI IMO.

Yes, an enjoyable, fun romp.

Josh, like you, I really liked the percussive wallop that accompanies the gunshots near the begining,...it's just killer. That particular effect, is something I really dig. The gunfire in the superbly produced Open Range, pretty much set the bar pretty high for me.

In contrast, it was difficult to adjust to a high budget action flick such as this,....due to the thin character development. It's all perspective because typically this is the stuff we really like. However, we just got thru a mega-marathon, multi-day viewing of three entire seasons of Sons of Anarchy on BluRay. Wow, that stuff is like crack,....so compelling we essentially got nothing done other that pure essentials during the days we spent viewing the series. Highly recommended, w/thick, dense plot-lines and thoroughly developed characters of dozens and dozens of hours. Point being, took a significant edge off the enjoyment of the MI Ghost Protocol due to the crammed in all too brief experience.

Anyway, I didn't see that coming,...the difficulty in adjusting genres. Really took the edge off MI-GP



If you're interested in Sons,....start at the beginning and don't research anything as there are spoilers out there easily found. We bought all three seasons out, the fourth is due sometime soon. Good stuff




Thanks

I'm late in the game here... but just watched Real Steel. I really enjoyed the impactful bass in that one. Robots walking jarred you just the perfect amount to give them the proper weight you'd expect. I'm surprised that movie never made the first post list. It has been edited within the last 30 days, yet no mention. I searched the thread and it seemed most put it between 4.0 and 4.5. I'd agree with that, though I usually refrain from voting since my system doesn't reach manfully much below 15 Hz.

The other surprise was, this was a rental blu-ray, and it had what seemed to be a pretty new Avengers trailer, and oh man, that trailer was thumpin' really hard. Not only were the sound effects bassy, but the music selection had some deep bass as well. I recall seeing a very similar trailer in IMAX a few weeks ago, and it was even more impressive at home. I hope the actual movie has as much awesome bass as the trailer. I know it's a silly popcorn movie, but I'm fairly geeked about seeing Avengers.

just watched cloverfield for the first time...now I know waht everyone was talking about!! WOW!!!

WotW is up next
post #3434 of 16115
Premature, but my daughter told me they are filming Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters!! Don't know if it has been talked about, just thought I would pass it on. This is one that should be very promising!! I absolutely loved Percy Jackson and the lightning thief, great LFE along with a pretty good movie. I just watched it again last night as I finally picked up a BD copy this past weekend!

It is a really great scene but, those are the slowest traveling bullets ever ... bang and then a second or so later the bullet hit the water trough.

Ok, instead of "superbly produced", how about "superb spectral content of the gunfire"

Much better without the picture ...

Once you look at that scene and note the bullet lag, it is never quite the same...

It's called dramatic effect.

FOH,

You need to see 'The Wire'. Best series I have ever seen.

The Minotaur and Hydra were good ones in that film...

Totally agree about the wire. The only show I have ever seen better than the wire is game of thrones....also check out boardwalk empire, rescue me and person of interest.

Definitely for sure! I wonder if Jonathan Nolan (creator or exec producer) is related to Christopher Nolan (director of the latest Batman films)

I also love how Costner rapid-fires about 12 shots from his revolver at the beginning of the shootout! So much for Neo-Westen realism!

One of my top five movies now! Probably the only other movie besides Shawshank and Gladiator that I can watch over and over. My daughter turned me onto this movie, she reads all the Percy Jackson books. I think one of the coolest parts in the movie is in the beginning with the crack of Lighting and then the Thunder, at reference level It sounds like the real thing!
post #3448 of 16115
Watchmen has some nice heavy bass in it, especially toward the end of the movie. I watched the director's cut so can't say regarding the other versions.

Anyway, I wouldn't call it a 5 star, but maybe a 4 star LFE movie.

Agreed. The Wire was so good. It's the only show that I watched every single episode twice before deleting it from the DVR. Game of Thrones is amazing, but I don't know if anything will ever top The Wire.

Too bad it wasn't in HD though...

watched the latest Mission Impossible movie last night on blu ray

lots of good bass and 2 really awesome bass scenes come to mind

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
the explosion at the Kremlin was pretty awesome and reminds me of the war of the worlds tri-pods emerging type of bass. the submarine ICMB launch when the missile is coming out of the water had some pretty sick bass also
