After reading many threads about great bass scenes in certain movies I am finding that I must be hearing something different? I often find myself not agreeing with the masses as to what movie or particular scene has the best LFE.


I looked at a few waterfalls from movies I am familiar with and much of the LFE is below 25Hz in these scenes.


Is the reason I don't agree with "great bass scenes" because my Bic F12 does not reproduce these low sounds.

Yes, your sub is a big part of it. Both in not reproducing those lower frequencies, and in not reproducing the sheer SPL needed to be wowed.


How big is your room? The bigger it is, the harder it is to "pressurize".


There are also room acoustics to contend with. To see what I'm talking about, play a bass-heavy music track and walk around the room. You'll notice the bass sounds louder in some areas, quieter in others. You could put your sub in 5 different places in your room, and it could sound different every time.


To get the most out of your sub, read up on sub placement and integration to maximize its performance by getting the flattest response in your room possible, and doing a proper calibration with the speakers (if you haven't already).

My room is much to large for my sub, 20x20x14 with two open door ways.


I have only had my F12 since Christmas and wished very much I had purchased a better sub, now I am stuck with a new sub that does not get the job done, I can't say I am unhappy with my F12 purchase it is a great sounding sub for $182, just not enough for my room.


Relocating the sub is really not an option in my room, I hope purchasing a much larger one will help compensate for improper placement.
