Let me gather myself, because I just had one of the experiences of my life.
As you probably know (or maybe not) I've been subless for almost five months since upgrading from a LG HTiB which served me well for over a year. Since my PB-1000 order went down the toilet, I decided for a Polk HTS 12 that just arrived yesterday.
After playing with settings and test tones, playing some music and testing for the right placement, I decided today to lose my bass "virginity" to GI Joe: Retaliation
a movie I recently watched and I could easily spot any significant changes my new sub brought to the table.
Let me tell you. I was in shock, I was in awe and I was frightened. Right from logos at the start of the movie I could tell something was different. When the first action piece started my jaw was on the floor. I wasn't watching the movie: I WAS EXPERIENCING IT.
I had never experienced such force, such sound pressure and so many shockwaves running through my whole body. My chair was vibrating, my room was shaking and the windows were rattling.
I couldn't believe the amount of sound and extension I was missing. I heard things in the movie I had never heard before. The "volume", the "weight" of the audio was startling, and like I said, at least the first 40 minutes I was almost scared. I couldn't even concentrate on what was happening on the screen, because I wasn't just discovering new sounds, I was *feeling* things.
And the best part of adding a sub to my system it's that it freed my front stage of the burden of having to play full range. The sound not only was fuller, but it could also get louder without being uncomfortable. I comfortably turned up the MV three "levels" and it felt like I could turn up the volume a little more without turning into a piercing mess. I really don't know the specifics of what truly happened, but my system sounds now SO MUCH BETTER!
And the last part of the movie was simply insane! Just when I thought I was getting accustomed to this new "physical" experience, it just kept getting more crazy and intense.
I can't even imagine what you guys are experiencing in your Herculean systems, but you guys must be insane!
But I tell you what? I CRAVE FOR MORE!!
Edit: I forgot to add that maybe the reason I was scared is that I felt like a punching bag and I couldn't do anything about it.
