The Master List of DVD, HD-DVD & Blu-ray Movies with BASS Thread...With WaterFalls - Page 40

post #1171 of 5740
it was edited as soon as I clicked `post'...oh well...I'm fine with something new on the color chart. My whites will become purple based on past charts. I wish I had my HT when we watched `I am Legend'..the evac sequence at the bridge would've brought the house down.

I have an HSU 2.3 that is rated down to 18Hz in room. I can't imagine it putting out anything useful below 10Hz. Is it just going to force the sub into extreme excursions causing damage, or will it do something useful?

I've only come across one or 2 peeps here who have DIY subs that can go below ten..and then there's a fan sub thing that can push 5HZ for around $5,000!

I'm getting a Ultra so mid-teens near field will be attainable.Wife won't allow the house to be torn apart with all of her decor up.

I'd doubt many people here are actually getting a perceivable 10hz and below. You're looking at massive DIY or IB subs to accomplish that. It looks cool on the waterfalls, but the vast majority of people aren't going to even notice that it's there. I'm good to about 15hz in-room, and I don't feel like I'm missing much at all.

As for your Hsu, the amp has a high pass filter that starts to steeply roll off frequencies below the tuning point. This will protect the woofer from over excursion. Incidentally, you know how the amp has a toggle depending on which tune you're using? That is what sets the high pass filter. This is also why Hsu warns to make sure that you use the correct setting depending on whether or not you're using a port plug. If you leave the filter set at a lower frequency in max output mode, you COULD damage your sub.

Oh I know that scene like the back of my hand. Mostly peaks with in-room response on my Technics SH-8055 at 25Hz when things slow down as Wolverine struggles to open the sliding doors then BOOM! The house landing or rather impacting was around or near to 120dbc at my last home. I’ll have to play that scene out again and see how it does on a concrete floor rather than a wooden floor.

Try placing your finger tips on the cone while playing sine wave tone. I tried a few in the past from the Denon Hi-Fi Check CD CO-75046 produced (1992) tones like 4Hz 8Hz 16Hz 32Hz 62Hz and 125Hz the infersoinc ones just move my hand up and down.

The audible tones felt uncomfortable like 62Hz just buzzed the hell out of my whole arm after several minutes it had tinkling feeling, kinder like [white finger] when minors are drilling with heavy machinery in the mines.

I bet you did with some mild 25Hz peaks then suddenly rising without waning with high peaks! What's cool is the electrical storm the static sound buzzes all-around the room kinder fooled me, into thinking I'm overloading the centre back and sidewall surrounds. Takes a bit of getting used to it does with Flight of the Phoenix.

yeah its like on a whole other level! everything is so viceral...like everything...just a pleasure to watch really...cant wait to watch with 4 18's ...i cant believe it took me so long to get this movie!

*there was one part where my jar dropped...and i have Master...WOTW...LOTR's...Nemo (though Darla is ridiculous)...and when it was a steady 28-29hz around 15min or so and then it dropped down really low...just amazing. reminded me of Spidey 3 particle, but 12 times better

So where's "I Am Legend" on here? Just watched it and there's lots of very deep and visceral bass. One large explosion near the end almost seemed to lift my own room off its foundation.

Pretty good flick too (with the alternate ending).

ch.23 (1:21:00-1:24:15)
ch. 24 (1:25:20-1:30:14)

The botched family evac. scene(ch.12) had the strong (dbwise) bass.



ch. 14's got cut off sorry.

plenty more but these were the 3 I decided to link.

not near as deep as the famous `Irene' sequence but solid.

i just saw the movie August Rush on dvd

there is a short scene chapter 21 (1 hour 13 minutes in) were this boy prodigy wonders into a church and sits down at the pipe organ. he's playing around with the keys but nothing is sounding until he presses in one of the preset buttons that activates the pipes and he presses down on one of the bass pedals for a second and it shook my whole room

then he starts playing for about a minute and there's lots of bass coming from the pipe organ

it's a short but powerful scene and a pretty good movie too

I watched I am Legend and that movie was terrible. The only bass that was good was at the end. I will be selling my copy of I am legend on blu ray.

Let me throw this one out in case anyones interested.

Edward Scissorhands.

It has a very musical soundtrack throughout the movie, for those into the music side of things, and it booms/bangs along the way.

I dont know if I had a bad copy of I am legend but I kept switching back and forth From DD and True HD to see if there is something wrong with the track.To my disappointment nothing for both the tracks. By the way I had the Blu Ray version, listened to the movie on dual HSU 3.3 turbos with an MBM-12. Watched it on a PS3 connected to the Onkyo 805 through HDMI.
