It's a little hard to explain what I mean, but "epic" is the only word I can think of to describe it...
When each surround and mains:
l, r, c, sr, sl, sc consist of 8 drivers per box and each driver is 8 inches in diameter giving you a total of 48-- 8inch diameter drivers.
When you have at least four 12 inch diameter subwoofers and each one is in a twenty cubic foot box tuned at 14 hertz.
When you have at least an 12db or preferably 24 db electronic crossover and two separate amplifiers for subwoofer sections.
When you have this equipment in a concrete house and the closest neihbor is a basehead three blocks away.
Then maybe its what you are looking for.
