My wife was yelling at me saying that I was just being foolish and she was right!
When I was testing the limits of my subs when I first built them, I was testing 10Hz CEA-2010 burst tones and usually those bursts are a nice safer way to test limits, but even they were making the doors upstairs in my house slam violently back and forth within their jambs. The square waves of EoT just want to rip my house apart. It's actually crazy and maybe irresponsible that they would put that on a retail disc.
I don't really see any downside in doing what you are thinking with the blank file.
Yeah EOT intro really is insane (and can definitely be hard on gear if not careful). We used to use it quite a bit in the VS thread for a lot of different reasons with the 30, 25, 20, 15, and 10hz drop down sine steps. We used to pretty much run that thing full tilt and probably wasn't the smartest thing ever lol. Fun but may have had something to do with me having to have 2 of my MA's repaired, IDK. But on that last 10hz note, back when I had my rig in the living room, with the sealed 18's behind behind the seats and the MAs and BK's all going full throttle, I remember the couch seat looking like it was getting about an inch or more worth of up and down travel for the TR when standing off to the side VibSensing it
Crazy noises from the house too, especially from the kitchen area from the cabinets, microwave, stove etc rattling. EOT intro cranked up is just brutal as hell and not just the ending tones. The starting 30hz tone is pretty insane too!
I don't think my setup is a slouch by any means for TR now in the new room, but I do miss my old setup sometimes for the insane amounts of TR that thing could dish out on that couch that had a ton of flex in the middle seat (some of the best TR fun I've ever had on a lot movies) ...
That damn intro is no joke though! Crazy that they would put such a thing in there, its so out of place and WAY hotter than the rest of the bass on that track. Fun (we sure as heck had our fun with it), but dangerous too. I got lucky I think that I didn't tear up anything gear wise, well may have to something to do with the MA's having problems, but not sure. It was kind of a weird issue Randy had never seen before. He fixed them no problem though free of charge so I was very thankful for that. Good guy for sure!!
, did you ever get the one you were having a bit of trouble with sent in an fixed up?
