Congrats on your purchase!
There's a lot of bass, but it's not super well done in Pacific Rim. No variety, no depth, and it gets monotonous - boom, boom, boom. If that's what you like, so be it...but I don't think that's why you bought top shelf, sealed subs for ~five grand. (Of course, I'm being a little tongue-in-cheek )
If you want to watch some movies that don't have 1-note, boomy, ghetto blaster bass like Pacific Rim, a few of my personal favorites for execution of bass effects in the sound mix include:
Olympus Has Fallen (Be careful with this one...make sure you're calibrated and NOT running hot before you play this @ reference - don't wanna kill those brand new subs on the Washington Monument scene! )
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (Not very low, but an exceptionally well-mixed track that will still give those Triaxes a workout!)
X-Men: First Class
Star Trek (2009)
Oblivion (Reversing my opinion on this one a bit, but I think you need to run 3-5dB hot on this mix...then it gets good!)
How To Train Your Dragon
The Incredible Hulk
And, one that, come to think of it, I haven't measured but should: The Incredibles (BR version).
There are lots of others, especially the old standby War of the Worlds, but I think the ones above are, with the exception of OHF, really great movies with spectacular sound design.
I'm curious to see the drivers in the Triaxes. Are there pics of these new Fi drivers that bumped up performance (and price & weight) so much? I'm curious about their specs and construction, though I presume it's pretty close to off-the-shelf versions of the Fi Q series...
