I thought about all the different parameters that could be at work here:
-placement, calibration, in-room FR, sub(s), taste

I say this because I didn't find "I, Robot" or "DAT" or many other listed titles to be teeth rattling.

Agreed and Agreed. I think room modes or an overly hot subwoofer come into play a lot.

I use the opening scene in LOST IN SPACE when fine tuning my sub.
The rocket blasts and the explosions that follow are great.

If you can find the DTS version that is. The DTS version is a full bit rate DTS audio track.

Half bit rate DTS, it is not Full bit rate.

Admittedly, my Servo15 doesn't go much below 18hz and I normally watch at about -14db from reference. I live an a 2br apartment and the Servo is eq'ed fairly flat with a BFD.


That may be the issue most recording engineers and live engineers like a hump in the lo freq not so flat. This is a prime example of EQ by RTA. try letting up on the EQ a bit not so flat.

Thirded! Sky Captain gave my new SVS a workout yesterday.

TRULY teeth rattling?

The Core - bridge collapse
Flight of the Phoenix - pre-crash storm and crash itself
post #45 of 571
What do you think are the best scenes in Blade2? I love the Blade series. I just picked up a SVS 16-46pc Its the older one, but I think it has a little left in it.

The way I remember it, there was killer bass throughout the movie. Obviously, there were better moments than others but the whole movie seemed like a bass ride, from memory. Maybe I'll throw it in tonight and check it out again.

I'm certain Torque was mentioned somewhere on this thread. I watched the movie when it originally came out on DVD, then about a week ago I left my satellite receiver on and was working in my garage which is next to my den. The chase scene was playing and I hear these large banging sounds and I thought some one had hit the rear of my townhouse.

If you really want to give your sub a work out get Ladder 49 and check out the first scene when they go into a burning building. There's a back draft and it starts to explode. No pun intended, it is really a BLAST!

Guys,

If you have not seen the Incredibles yet, Its a Must See/Listen too. I am not sure how low the frequency is in this movie but I thought I was gonna get ejected out of my reclyner a few times...It has some POWERFUL Bass in it. This movie has lots of bass in it, not just one or two scenes. The movie was really good too in my opinion. My VTF-3MKII handled it flawlessly and did it VERY well. The wife really liked this movie too and also said afterward " Now that was a good movie with some goooood bass"


Thx,
Claude

post #58 of 571
Altho I like BladeII, think it has reference video and great audio, I would not include it int eh top BASS dvds by any stretch of the imagination.
post #59 of 571
I can't help but to wonder if room modes personal taste,& type of sub or subs being used isn't playing a big part on how some are perceiving loud or low bass here. I see so many post that one person will say that movie X has the lowest, loudest, teeth rattling bass they ever heard & they thought that there walls were going to be blown down. But than after that they say they cant believe there 12" Velo CHT could do that & live through it. Than another person comes in to say that movie 2X has twice the bass of movie X & it's the best they have ever heard.
Any way to get to my point, & just to clear things up I'm not trying to pick on anyone or change the direction of the thread. But I have most of the movies menchioned in this thread that I do agree have some very good bass in them. But I also I several different movies that I have seen menchioned that have very good bass to them but not extent that some will describe. Or another point the this movie kills the bass in that movie argument. There have been several times I will see someone say OMG you have to hear ch 23 in movie 2X where the earth gets split in two by a super ray nuke bomb, I thought it was really happening I've never heard bass like that. But than I'll go check it out & I'm like that was it, where is the insane bass they were talking about, I felt something but I had to rewind to make sure it wasn't just me farting or something. But than I throw in a movie they were comparing it to & think holly crap what were they thinking that has some bass. And I don't think my sub is no slouch either, nor am I trying to say that anyone else's is. But rather I think it is funny how wide the perception of good, low, loud, or how ever you care to describe it bass is.
post #60 of 571
I agree. This is a very subjective subject. That is why when I go on this thread, the point I try make is that if I find something that has a lot of impact, I recommend that you check it out. Unfortunately I rarely get a response.
