I have not, all I've done is run Audyssey on my x4300h (and I bumped my subs up about 6dB after calibration). So for all I know, my subs might not be in the optimal positions for my room (even though I placed them 1/4 width distance from each wall, based on AVS member recommendations), and my room is ~6000 cubic ft and open to stairs w/bannister (the reason I purchased 2 V3601 subs). I sit ~8 ft from my tv and probably ~10 ft from each sub.
Based on my most recent memory of both films, I was more impressed overall with the MoS soundtrack, bass and atmos. It just seemed to be an almost constant assault of all around sound. Don't get me wrong, my wife, who only watched Wonder Woman with me, looked at me, saying "I know you're loving this." which I was; being on a suspended floor I get ridiculous tactile response from almost anything intense, even violins and voices....but there were only a few scenes in WW that stand out in my mind as really awesome LFE wise (the bracelet scene, the battlefield assault, and the final battle). In MoS, it was just non-stop extended bass scenes.....spaceships, lasers, guns, fights, explosions, etc..... even Superman taking off each time had great bass. The first page of this thread puts both WW and MoS in the "Demo Scene Films" category, but I feel MoS has many more bass moments, maybe not as low as WW but just more bass overall..............has everyone in this thread chiming in on their WW preference watched the 4K uhd disc version of MoS? Because it is definitely better than the blu-ray version sound-wise. Regardless, I will watch WW again (1st world problems), probably tonight, to solidify my opinion.
Another movie many people said had awesome bass but I didn't think did, was Kong: Skull Island.....I was underwhelmed overall, and I wondered if it was just my setup because I was looking forward to this and it ended up being a bit disappointing to me in the bass department..... but I assumed it was just the movie, because all the top bass movies in this thread give my subs a true workout. I know I probably need the Umik and REW, right? Any other measurement equipment I need? Not trying to go broke getting it either. I obviously would like to optimize my space and equipment.
