Crashing into downtown


The movie is out already? You overseas?

Those charts are worrying.
MOST theaters can't do much of anything below 30Hz (takes a LOT more power at 15Hz than 30Hz) and there is way more cubic volume. That's why some of us find it amusing when someone goes to the theater and comes back proclaiming something will be a ULF monster.

I can't think of any commercial theater that can play flat to 20Hz much less from 5-20Hz.

+1. Not sure what all the fuss about the sound quality and LFE being top of the line. My subs had more of a workout with Gangster Squad.

I tried to warn everyone a couple weeks back that Jack Reacher is not a bass movie:

Or maybe this is closer...?


Battle: Los Angeles - Chapter 14 - last minute...

Still pretty clipped on the top one. But, nice to see some effort to getting it figured out. smile.gif

Does anyone know how the bass is in Saving Private Ryan ?

It's been a while since I've seen it, but I'm thinking about that opening scene when they come in on the beach, wow.

Anyone ?

I'm gonna pick up the BD if its decent.. cool.gif

Has anyone watched The Impossible yet? A friend of mine watched it on his Yamaha HTIB and said it was pretty phenomenal which of course I took with a grain of salt considering the sub is something like a 6 incher. But then looking at the bluray.com review, maybe he is on to something.
From the review;

As Bayona mentions in the commentary, a lot of attention was paid to the sound design of this film, and that care comes through immaculately well on both of these lossless offerings. From the first disturbing rumble that begins the film (is it a tsunami or something else entirely?) through the big set piece of the waves crashing ashore to later, more relatively restrained moments, these tracks offer brilliantly immersive qualities that regularly place discrete effects around the soundfield, adding immeasurably to the generally realistic ambience of the film.

From the review;

Good sounding track overall IMO, but you won't be pulling it out to demo your subs in light of the better and best demo scenes/films on tap. I certainly would not call the LFE "astounding".

Does Battle:LA really have that much under 15Hz? No wonder I didn't think much of it, my SVS is in 16Hz tune! lol
post #8113 of 16108
Battle:LA is an awesome bass movie.
post #8114 of 16108
Does anyone know if there is anything to keep an eye out for with some decent LFE coming to Blu Ray soon??

I know there are some great movies coming to the theaters in the next year. We should have lots to discuss in the near future biggrin.gif

There is no good lfe in this movie that I can remember. There is a car scene but the bass is higher up like 80hz.

post #8117 of 16108
From what I saw in the IMAX of Oblivion, that'll be a treat in a couple of months.
post #8118 of 16108
+1. I saw that movie at an UltraAVX cinema recently and, yeah, it should both look and sound great on BD. smile.gif

Son and I just watched it last night. I would agree not a movie one would consider for LFE bragging but overall entertaining. It definitely has some mid-level moments that will work the rest of your system with a few lower hits now and then. I know my system/theater definitely had that Big Block Chevelle sounding good.... Had me reminiscing about my old LS6. biggrin.gif.

Yeah, the cars sounded great but that was about all. There was way too much talking and way too little action. I could have enjoyed it as much as I did...not much...by watching it on a 19 inch set without a sound system attached.

I agree the movie could have been about 15 min shorter. However, much of the talk was an attempt to get you into the characters thoughts. As for the 19 inch set.... Ahhhh no. Not that I would like it yet I would take a big screen and a single speaker experience over a screen size that I couldn't even stomach on my computer now days....

Schwarzenegger's "The Last Stand" is out next Tuesday. There are a couple of reviews of the blu-ray out already. Looks promising.

Yes, B:LA really has that much under 15hz. Check out the real graphs: http://data-bass.ipbhost.com/index.php?/topic/12-the-low-frequency-content-thread-films-games-music-etc/?p=134.

None whatsoever. Decent movie actually, but I'm not really sure how it even ended up on the LFE thread.
post #8125 of 16108
The rifle shots sounded great but no real LFE to speak of.

Been following this thread for about a week now.. very interesting stuff.

Based on the chatter here and given that I had to wait to pick up my wife at work today, and that there's a best buy right across from her office, I picked up Battle Los Angeles..

Very nice, good call on that one I must say biggrin.gif

Also picked up all of the Fast and Furious BDs for $10 each but that's probably not for this thread.. wink.gif Anyways I guess it can get expensive if you have to wait for your wife and there's a best buy right there..

Does HURT LOCKER have good bass or just good sound in general ?

EDIT: I see that Hurt Locker and some of the Fast and Furious are on The List, good stuff

Several of these titles have the best Bass scenes on a couple of the demo blurays that some fine gentlemen from this forum have produced, and made available for download. wink.gif
