I've been looking through the Blu-ray Discs: Reviewer's Recommendations thread as I plan to get a bunch of movies after installing the 21's, but I think I need to be more specific than "great audio" and target the advice of the guys that can acheive 5Hz-15Hz to begin with, that even have the ability to experience this in their selections. So I'd like everyone's "WOTW's, The Incredible Hulk, Black Hawk Down" recommendations please. Not at all concerned with 20Hz on up, thanks!

That one definitely rocks my room and I'm currently limited to about 13Hz. As soon as I get my "Sub-subwoofer" up and running I'll find out what it can do in single digits.

I've been sketching ideas, basically using woofers as motors to drive much larger surface area panels. I'm considering scaling it down some but right now the plan is for 96 ft^2 or a little less than the equivalent of 100 15" woofers in Infinite Baffle.

Isn't War of the Worlds still pretty much the standard for sub 20hz content?

Yep - Randy Thom did the sound design for that one, and many of his other works are being mentioned here as well. Like Percy Jackson, which comes pretty close to WotW level stuff at times.

So we've got train your dragon and Percy Jackson so far. I'll get those tonight or tomorrow. I have WOTWs, my favorite of course. Waiting to hear back from Nick about the 21's before I start my Mod Build Log. Adding 6 2"x4"s to each box as the sub itself causes the most flex, so one in each corner of the sub...help with weight as well.. and 2 down by the port cause that causes flex too.


Can't wait to see how that modded subwoofer idea pans out Montekay!

Dark night is great!

Also even though it's not a blu-ray, Titan A.E. is an reference movie for me, amazing!!!

Also terminator salvation was pretty sweet and G.I. Joe was good to.
