This may have been a few years ago now (thinking 2016 maybe.) I had dual PB 13 Ultras and was reading about this Movie Scene with crazy bass moment. I go out and buy the Bluray. "Black Hawk Down". Major let down (not the movie, the bass). I get to the 1:50 min mark and I hear some bass but nothing "Mind Altering" or "Face Melting". That is when I realized, I needed MORE Bass, bigger and better subs than the Ultras.
So my high water mark was this Movie scene "F__king Irene". 2 new subs later and I now hear and feel what all the "pandemonium" was about. This is a great test track. If you don't feel the Chopper Rotor Air wash and the deep thumping of the rotor blades in your chest, you need more ULF creating Subs. Now that you made me think, I think I want to go watch this movie again!
Hey good to hear from you, hope all is well with yourself. Same scenario in Lone Survivor's chopper rotor scene,, i think a strong 7/8Hz. In my "open" living room it is moot chasing strong single digits unless i had room for a couple 10Hz tuned ported beasts near field. What i need to do, is stop fiddling with different settings as i often get my system to do "all" frequencies well including single digits, but i just dont seem to be able to leave good alone lol. Sometimes i just like to explore other settings.
Tomorrow i think i'm going to try Pio's setting and run audyssey with the Funks in "no EQ" mode. My thinking is (at least today), why over complicate EQ by having an aggressive preset that focuses in a certain area of strength,,,, then have audyssey try and smooth that out, seems counter productive. I'll run audyssey with no eq, see how it sounds "if good" then i can introduce some presets and maybe just adjust trim to taste based on how aggressive they are.
I still vividly remember some of your animated stories once you got your 2400's and what they were doing in your room,,,,, the cats response to one of your bass fest movies still makes me laugh.
2019 has started out strong in some ULF monsters, if you havent bought Overlord/Hunter Killer/The Cloverfield Paradox, do yourself a favor if you want BASS demo material.
Got my movies mixed up F-ing Irene is lone survivor right?
