Jealous am I!!!

I didn't know whether to ask a dual sub question here or not, but since it came up, I will. :-) I have a room that's 21'x12.5'x9. I have BA VS line with 4.5" woofers and a 5.25"CC with PB12NSD. I was thinking of adding a second PB 12 NSD, but I don't know if it's really needed. The room shake during the Underworld Awakening scene in the new coven with the giant Werewolf first appearance. Will I really gain that much with a second sub?

To avoid taking this thread out of topic, I will invite you to post your question here:

http://www.avsforum.com/t/737143/official-svs-owners-support-thread

Lot of folks there running dual SVS subs that might be able to answer all your questions and/or guide you in the process to add a second sub in your room.

Looking forward to see you there!

Watched the new Judge Dredd in 3D last night with 3 other buddies, what a great movie, TONS of bass, lots of gore, the slo-mo was awesome. You can tell whoever made that movie was a gamer (like me! biggrin.gif) the way some of the action scenes were shot. A definite buy in 3D for me.

Is Dredd a 5 star movie?
post #6815 of 16168
4 STAR only

I think I need a better scale to do this because some movies are in between. For instance I rated WOTW as a 5, probably still the best ever! I rated TDK and TDKR both around the same. TDK I gave a 4.5 but I thought both Total Recall and Dredd and better ULF's than TDK but the TDK had a little better midbass. Since I prefer that pressurizing low frequency more than the midbass(Think FOTP plane roll as the best example) I would rate Dredd and Total Recall higher than TDK. It is not a 5 like FOTP and WOTW so where do I go? 4.75? I need a better scale because there a many movies in between now. I guess based on the half scale I would rate both Dredd and Total Recall a 4.5 like I did TDK. I don't know where you guys are getting a 3 or even 4 with these. They have lots of the low stuff that just pulse and is a cool effect. I like it better than a midbass punch which is easy to get.

The slo-mo-effect......nice smile.gif
...and this movie is a point-and-shoot gameway movie....
those "tons of bass" should have been more related to action-effects like weaponry and explosions rather than a synth-bass-music-drop & pump...

Which reminds me of this concert...

I would venture to say that even 90% of the bassheads on this thread have a system no where near as capable as yours when it comes to recreating the ULF's...

It's one of those "they can't miss what they have never experienced" scenarios...

Quite the wide range of opinion on Dredd! Everything from 3 to 4.75. I should get to this tonight and am curious how it plays out for me with my mere mortal subs (no single digit response). tongue.gif

Total Recall was a solid 4 in my setup.

Just watched Underworld Awakening again which is a solid 5 IMO.

Picture quality is pretty bad in this movie, scenes that looked out of focus and some other scenes with a lot of picture noise (like filmed with a cheap camera).

Audio is pretty cool though.

The blurred scenes are the slo-mo ones where people have taken the drug of the same name. The rest of the film looks fine on my 3D projector and 8 foot high power screen.

The sound ain't bad either. wink.gif

Dredd, as a film, was surprisingly good. A lot like raid, but, I thought, a lot better. Some really great deep bass and awesome sound design in general. It's more about smartly chosen and placed effects than a cacophony.

However, I too thought the picture looked really noisy at times. Wasn't in the slow mo scenes, but in some of the darker ones. Most of the film looked fantastic though

I would love to "experience" Dredd in Art Sonneborns Sun Cinema. eek.gif

Yeah, I understand the effect they gave to the slo-mo scenes in relation to the use of the drug. My issue is with other "regular" scenes in which you can notice "noise" on dark scenes.

Bingo! That is exactly what I was referring to. wink.gif

Just watched Death Race 3 on Netflix. It's available to stream, but the DVD/BD is not available to rent until next month. confused.gif Silly movie, but I like the girls and effects. cool.gif The DD Plus audio has some decent LFE as well.

Maybe they did the gritty pic quality on purpose since it is a gritty movie. I kinda look at it like an artistic effect. Star Trek and Total Recall has their flashy lens flares and Dredd has its gritty picture.

Probably, but I should expect that it will be like that the whole movie. Just like Spielberg's WOW.

But in Dredd's there are some really clear scenes and then you will have others with noise. In any case, I think most agree that bass is pretty cool in this movie.

Cheers!

I'm curious MKtheater, how many subs do you have in your home theater and what size drivers do they have?
post #6829 of 16168
I have 12 13's.

Good thing it's not 12 of these, otherwise the entire east coast would probably breakoff into the Atlantic Ocean.
post #6836 of 16168
One caps2 costs as much as all my subs combined. I use the tools for the job needed. 24 18's would be a big waist of money as 4 LMS 5400's or 7-8 SI's would get me there too.

Agreed. I'd go further and consider Dredd a five star because it does the very thing FOTP does, and does it for a longer duration. I'm referring to the long ULF rumble that lasts from around 0:51.04 to 0:52.26. (classroom scene). smile.gif
post #6839 of 16168
Watched Dredd last night and my opinion is middle of the pack and I am feeling a solid 4 OVERALL. If I was judging just on the insane classroom scene and one other early on scene which I cant recall exactly now, I would go higher, but on the whole IMO this is a 4. The music bass vs the effects (weapons, explosions, etc...) bass felt a bit unbalanced and unconvincing at times in relation to the onscreen action I thought. I am considerably more impressed overall with tracks like Underworld Awakening or Tron Legacy both of which are solid 5 star in my book. Still a great LFE track though and the overall sound was very good.
post #6840 of 16168
Agreed. After watching dredd the other day then U:A last night. U:A is in a world of its own. Holy crap
