But i did assume what the other guy said, it wouldnt matter for bass. I moves my sub from next to the couches to directly next to the entertainment center between that and the right speaker.
I watched the scene where gandalf was fighting the other wizard in the tower and he learns hes evil. Holy balls that is some nice bass. Everything shaking and no boom. It kept playing and i got to the part where froto puts on the ring in the pub, more massive bass no boom. Its still playing and alot of the sound effects are really nice. Some scenes where the trumped theme is playing does have some boominess, which may just be gow the soundtrack souds, But its way better than it was. I have most movie theaters ive been to beat. Ill do some more testing with music as i play guitar quite a bit, i own a 600 dollar 2x12 cab with vintage 30 speakera and a 1000 dollar hand built tube mini rectifier, and like to play along with music.
Not to nitpick, but to inform... DTS Master Audio Lossless and Dolby TrueHD Lossless variable bitrate codecs usually average much, much higher than the top 1.4 Mbps DTS lossy fixed bitrate codec on some DVD's (many were only 768 kbps)... depending on the amount of channels, bit resolution, and sampling rate of the track. The Lord of the Rings extended cut tracks on Blu-ray are DTS Lossless 24 bit/48 kHz with 6.1 discrete channels.
Were you actually
considering buying two Rythmik 15 inchers to get that 10% off discount? I'd take out major structural insurance with that duo!!!
Maybe it would be better to get a decent budget 1080p projector and screen than the second sub for now, if you haven't already.
