Well, not "any" movie, but just about every movie that I have seen in the past and then re-watched on my humble home theater is whole other experience entirely. there is just somehting about a 110" screen, full 7.1 surround and that monster black box in the corner, combined with sitting in my drawers, on my huge oversstuffed furniture or giant 7' bean bag scratching myself that is just plain enjoyable to me. No movie theater quite compares.
just about every DVD I have in my collection I have bought since I purchased the SVS, so basically I have been watching many movies again for the first time on a real system--it is a whole other experience all together. many scenes and many movies you never knew had bass in them at all, now shake you off of the couch--oh yeah I am a bit of a volume junky too. typically in the -10 to -5 from reference range. Wall rattling is very accurate description. I am discovering rattles in new places all the time. The front wall of my theater really resonates right at 20hz--bad. I guess the distance from the sub is just right or something, but when I run sine waves through it, I am fearful that I am going to rip the nails out of the wall--literally. I have never seen anything like it. The whole wall shakes back and forth about a full 3/8 of an inch. needless to say, I am very careful when running tests to keep the level rather low. It gets nutty 20hz with anything over 90db--which is easy for that beast. As much as I love my system, I am like most in here--I still have more bigger/better plans for improvements. Only time will tell what I actually end up with.
I am kind of excited about this evening. I have a buddy coming over to see my system for the first time. He absolutely loves his Onkyo HTIB system. The last time we talked he kept going on and on about how good of a sub that little 8" that came with the system is. I was polite and didn't say anything--needless to say tonght will be a wake up call for him and should be fun.
I have all the usuals ready:
SW I, II
LOTR --many scenses from all three movies
and of course the king of all bass scenes WOW CH5.
Plus I will throw in a few of my favorite surround sound testers:
final destination 2--car wreck
behind enemy lines--mine field and heat seaking missle chase scene in the beginning
house of flying daggers--echo game
hero--arrow attack and blue library
Again, it should be fun. I have running scared from netflix that we may watch depending on what ehy bring over with them.
