On a more forum related note. I just recently got my hands on a copy of Captain America 3D and after listening to it, as well as recently demoing Hulk to some friends, I will have to downgrade my rating of Avengers. Captain america had more dynamics in the bass department and Hulk is well, just insane. Even though Avengers has plenty of bass it is not as dynamic nor well plotted as either of the two films mentioned earlier. Earlier I gave it a 4.0 mostly due to the frequent use of bass, but I am beginning to realize that most of the bass just seems to be copy paste. By this I mean, it seems like they take one explosion, copy the LFE and apply it to another random explosion without changing the sound of it.
So you people can know, I have a smaller room with a HSU VTF-2.3 and in my room I get mostly flat from 16hz -50hz with a peak small peak at 60 and a dip between 70-80hz. This is the best I can get without buying a separate EQ for my sub which I cannot yet afford.
As for CITW, This film has got to be at least a 4.0, for it's truly astounding tactile feel and use of bass.

Well said, That is what I have been saying all along. I would rate CITW a solid 4.5 stars, maybe more for the cool effects down low.

Now how much deep bass is there in Prometheus?
Does it qualify for the coveted five star rating?

I watched Prometheus in DTS HD yesterday and this afternoon, I gave a spin for the french version (DD 5.1). Ironicaly that last track sounded lowder and got deeper in the ULF.First appearance of the ingineer, Prometheus landing and the take-off / crashing near the end are worth mentionning. DTS-HD 7.1; 4/5. DD 5.1 french; 5/5 IMHO (Canadian release, but I don'think it's different from US).

Hum interesting so material stuff takes priority over long lasting relationship frown.gif I feel sorry for you, hope your cars, speakers, and so on keep you warm at night smile.gif

As a film, I'd say it is better than the Transformer flicks, not as good as Alien(s) IMHO. I watched it in the theater, but the graphs a couple of pages back make me want to watch it again at home. It's at least worth a rental if you like the genre.

Maybe the DD is mastered at a louder volume level which might make it seem better when it is really just louder. Maybe someone can check to make sure they are the same mix?

In my opinion, it's lowder in the LFE but not just that. I listened few time back and forth with these two tracks but everytime with a +3 db LFE boost for the DTS HD track and with the DD, WOW, I know the track reach LOW when everything in my room earthquaked (if it's a word) like that! Obviously I would have liked it was the opposite because you know, DST HD = hi-rez audio!

All right then, I'm teased enough for a spin of CITW now. One more word and I'm buying it!
post #5743 of 16212
CITW! Now you have to buy it. Seriously, it does gave great bass.
post #5744 of 16212

Just looked at these pillars on the web! Better having more powerfull than less powerfull subs so no bottoming out. I tried +4 db hot LFE (-6db ref. level) on Prometheus DD 5.1 then I stoped wright away. It's good only if you want to level the place for a new home-theater from scratch! eek.gifbiggrin.gif

Not movie related, but was sorting through some music I've had on my PC for ages. And remembered this short tune a friend had written for a Quake 3 level made years ago. I had remembered it had some pretty potent bass, but really I had no idea. At the time it was written I don't think I had anything that could produce anything below ~35Hz. Well this song is a 20Hz monster! eek.gif
I played it on my HT System at -10db, my god my entire room was breathing! biggrin.gif

I tried to ask a simple question about deep bass in the movie Prometheus,
a couple of post back and got chastised for it by raistline.

So even when you do try to stay on topic, the trolls that populate this thread,
criticise you for it.

Excuse me sir, but I do not recall chastising anyone for requesting information about deep bass in a movie. I have looked at both our post histories and cannot find any posts to which I have replied to you in a hostile manner. Are you sure you are speaking about the right person. Can you possibly post quoted text?
So as to not clutter this forum any further if you have quoted text please respond via IM.

In the one post you reference, and beyond I have not chastised anyone. At the post you refer to where I was quoted, there had been near 15-20 pages of nothing but arguing back and forth about the ratings and so on in this forum. I like many others were getting sick of reading the arguments and my post was directly after someone else posted a comment that seemed to be designed to only fuel the fire and keep the argument going.

I Have looked at the last 2 weeks of posts by myself and CoolCat, I have not lashed out on anyone for anything other than what is stated above. I do not operate this way, I am not one to lash out at others on a forum and try to keep on topic and only give informed opinion or fact. I apologize now for derailing the thread a little bit but I do not enjoy being called out for something that I have not done. I do not wish to tarnish my good name I have worked hard at keeping.

I pretty much know what you have under the hood, but what's inside the trunk?

Just the factory 10" subwoofer. You might be surprised what is under the hood though. I spend my audio dollars on the home theater.

So the wife and I just watched the Avengers 3d. Great movie, looked and sounded fantastic, but like y'all said it was definitely lacking in good deep bass. I sit next to my Hsu vtf3.3 and it didn't get the workout I was hoping for. Gonna try Prometheus tomorrow and see how it is. We haven't seen it yet. Sounds like I'm gonna have to check out CITW too.
