I would love to hear how the 15H put the BIG HURT on it. Be sure to listen with one port and two ports open.

You guys are all killing me! I'm several years out from any kind of proper bass set up, as I'm a student living in an apartment and my parents won't let me do anything other than keep the terrible HtiB in the small side house. Can't wait to shake the foundations of my future house!

I can't remember what settings do your have your 2 15h's on? I think I am leaning towards 2 ports open. I tried 1 port and turned it into the wall but didn't like it. I may try 2 open and turn the q control to .5 then pull it out just a bit further front the corner than last time and run Audyssey.

2 open EQ 2 and Q .3 is what I first began at...

But you will have tons of perspective when you do. I think it's safe to say some of us have rushed into a purchase and later regretted it when we became better informed from spending more to e on these forums and researching products. I first bought my definitive technology speakers and was very unlearned (I still am but have learned more) and rushed into the purchase. I love the speakers, how the sound and would prob be a little more upset if I didn't get a great deal. But the towers have built in 10 inch subs and an 250 watt amp. I later decided to buy an HSU sub and then set the crossover on my towers at 80hz. This 'kind of' renders the tower subs useless. I say kind off because there is an upper bass contribution. But nonetheless I could have saved even more by knowing what I wanted to do from the get go. Anyway best of success!

I'm currently rockin' max output mode.....2 ports open....Eq2 of course...Q of .5.

Do you notice any difference when running Audyssey in max extension mode? A.k.a 1 port open....Q of .7...EQ1? I've never run Audyssey outside of it.

This is an excellent setting.

Yes, you have found an excellent resource in AVS. As jlpowell has pointed out, use the time to figure out what gear you really want. You can also use the time to begin saving money for it!

Some of us have buyers remorse because we purchased gear that was not the right choice. Another cause of buyer's remorse is being unable or unwilling to wait until the funds are available for the gear we really want, so we settle for something less and end up regretting it later.

Use the time to figure out what's going to work best for you, and save up the money for it, so that you don't have to settle for less!

Great post tboe. I actually made a thread with the intention of helping others to avoid buyers remorse by getting a sense of the path others have taken to achieve their own satisfaction level.

Here is the consolidated list. If a name looks familiar, or if you see that someone owns some gear that you are thinking about picking up, click their name and it will bring you to their post.

Nice!

I'm getting my PSA XS30 tomorrow! Perhaps I'll post in that thread after I've had some time with it.

So, what, in peoples opinions, is the very best all around Blu Ray that you would use as a DEMO disc? There are many great ones available and many that aren't worth a thing, but, other than animated cartoon stuff, what would be your choice as the best demo disc?

For me one would be Prometheus!

Considering this thread:

For all around bass (variety, depth, magnitude, appropriateness to action on screen, etc): War of the Worlds
Looking beyond bass: Skyfall or Star Trek (2009)


Best all around movie (forgetting bass, heresy I know): The Great Escape or Patton.

These are just my .02 of course.

Agreed, popped this in the other night - Wow.. The LFE just keeps on coming. TERRIBLE writing though, so if you're using it to impress your friends with the bass make sure you don't actually subject them to the entire thing!

TIH would be my #1 if I had to pick just one. This one has it all!

WOTW
FOTP
TIH
HTTYD
U:A
Cloverfield
Battle:LA

IMHO, excluding animated movies (many of which are VERY good as both entertainment and bass demos), my list of bass demo flicks that are also pretty great movies, would include

Looper
Star Trek (2009)
Inception
X-Men: First Class
LOTR 1 & 3

and to a lesser degree (good, but not great movies)

Live Free or Die Hard
Tron: Legacy
Skyfall
The Incredible Hulk
Hot Fuzz
Cloverfield
Running Scared
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
The Dark Knight
Drive

then the just OK movies:

Underworld: Awakening (bass + babe in tight leather = watchable)
Transformers 1&2
Thor
Total Recall
Dredd
Master & Commander (dvd version only)
Xmen 3

I'm not much of a fan of WOTW, Battle: LA, The Day After Tomorrow, or FOTP for entertainment, but they are all HUGE bass movies.

Then there are IMHO the really bad movies that have a lot of bass, such as:

Percy Jackson & The Olympians:The Lightning Thief (unwatchable)
Pulse (unwatchable)
Immortals (terrible clipping)
The Matrix Revolutions (bad)
The Last Airbender (completely unwatchable)
Daredevil (hahahahaha)
Gamer (terrible)

Live Free or Die Hard.

This was immediately the first movie that came to mind. No other film even comes close to the pure raw action and sound quality, including the new Die Hard that came out this year. The highway sequence alone should be in the top 5 of everyone's demo.

Just noticed Battle LA is being released next week in 4K. I am surprised this isn't being hyped more. At least 4K content doesn't appear to be going down the 3D pricing strategy...

So unless you have a 4K tv then 1080p is all you get right?

Again, the scene where the Alien spaceship unsuccesfully tries to leave the planet is just shear awesome, both visually and lots and lots of ULF LFE

That is interesting indeed. Is the movie bad? (I haven't seen it)

All of these are great demo's for bass. I would just add Prometheus and Terminator Salvation to that list as well.

The movie has a resolution of 1920x1080 on the disc. Doesn't matter if you play the movie on a 4k tv, its still 1080p.

Here is the official spec:

The Blu-ray “Mastered in 4K” collection is optimized so that 4K Ultra HD TV owners can take full advantage of the new 4K upscaling technology, delivering an outstanding near-4K experience. “Mastered in 4K” Blu-rays also work with all 1080p HDTVs for spectacular high definition picture and sound.

+3. This scene was indeed life changing when I saw this in the IMAX last year, both on a visual and audio scale.

So on a regular tv its 1080p and on a 4K tv its 1080p but sharper?

The effects are great but the plot holes are laughable and the decision making of the characters is nothing short of schizophrenic.
If I may nerd out for a second, its as if all the characters, in d & d speak, are chaotic neutral
