I know, i am a bass and sound guy too, LOL, but the images i am seing these days make me wanna see A lot of my movies again, HAHA. Now i know how you felt when you discovered how good the pic on your new PJ was
Ok, on another note:
So, i got an idea (again) about another use of cantilever. On my TR Sleds i have the BK’s up front with iso’s underneath. Altough this gives them some room to work, eventually even the iso’s will "stop", which is under heavy ULF use, and this will make them bottom out easier.
I was thinking: what if i REMOVE the front iso’s and thereby giving the BK’s more room to work. Basically the BK’s will be in "free air", and will kind of be cantilevered from the midpoint of the sleds, where the MA’s are, and forward. NORMALLY with just a plattform this wouldn’t work, as it would tilt the plattform and it would sit on the floor, but guess what: on my plattform i have 300lb of VNF’s bolted to the rear of plattform that works as a counterweigth, LOL.
So i tried it, but i didn’t remove the front iso’s, i just moved them rearwards about 1ft. So i removed those with red cross in pic below and put them were the blue dots are.
Still, the TR Sleds are so sturdy, the clearance to the floor is the same under the front, they did not tilt, and sitting down in the seats was no problem
So did it work? Well, i found a couple of good movies to test it out: Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
It was clear from the first dinosaur stomp that my idea worked
I even went for broke and REMOVED the negative LS and negative PEQ i used to prevent the BK’s bottoming before i started the movie. And no bottoming occured !!!! It was just EPIC ULF all the way, holy cow this movie is awsome
The first one is regular HDR10, but i used the force DV setting and this movie has never looked better
As good as the first one is, JWFK is on another level !!!! A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!!! When the vulcano goes off and they have to run, HOLY AMAZEBALLS was i pummeled with waves of ULF!!! It was totally crazy, and i could defenitely feel that the BK’s had increased displacement!! What a ride!!
Speaking of vulcano: this one IS in Dolby Vision, and it showed! The lava from the vulcano looked on fire !! My jaws was on the floor! I could not believe the PJ could throw such an amazing picture, it was truly a eyeopener !
I think i is a combo of me not having the best way/settings on the PJ before, and the new DV settings is much closer (and a bit better)to what it should be, but no matter: it is jawdropping !
So between the new DV settings and this BK’s mod, i got 2 pretty major upgrades for FREEEEEE! How cool is that
