    That's good to know. I just remember this thread being "teh shit!" so Im just expecting more traffic. I kinda would like to see some of the older crew in here. Ming and such aren't really showing up anymore.

    I am happy people are still watching this thread. I think it should be "stickied".

    Jeremy - Same feeling about EoER. Don't know how much fun the most of us will have with those scenes. HP filters will cut out a lot for us. Chapters 19 and 23 look like a lot of fun. Guess those 18" Tumults need to come out lickity-split!

    EDIT: ROFL!!!!

    Did the Serenity plots ever get done? At least the one for the introduction where they show the planet with all the explosions. Just wondering what frequencies the sub is playing that were causing my sliding glass door to rattle.

    If anybody does this one, they might want to check out Chapter 3 too, where Tom Smith (Chris Cooper's character) is lassoing mustangs. There's some decent stuff there too, though I suspect that both are rumbling mainly in the 30-35Hz zone.

    I still haven't seen Serenity. I think all the rabid fans defending the movie are scaring me. [​IMG] It looks fun, though. Any other good bass scenes in Serenity?

    first post here, usually on avs forum. We just had an event for the SF Bay area where we demo'd, for the first time in a home theatre, a new subwoofer technology able to get down to DC at very high SPLs.
    I was pointed to this thread by someone over at avs and really enjoyed all your waterfall charts. Now there is actually a subwoofer that can create 'audible' SPLs below 20Hz. Just FYI, I have a Wilson XS that we measured that could not do anything below 18Hz, so those of you who think your sub goes below 20Hz with any reasonable SPL may want to think again or actually measure it [​IMG]

    Anyway, if you're interested, check out the 'BAAS Special Event' thread in the Ultra Hi End forum. You can see pics of the device and opinions of the demo attendees.

    "Just FYI, I have a Wilson XS that we measured that could not do anything below 18Hz, so those of you who think your sub goes below 20Hz with any reasonable SPL may want to think again or actually measure it"

    You need to do a little homework on the DIY subwoofer world. Ive had a diy 15" powered with 250w for about five years now. Tuned to 15.4hz and it "measures" flat to about 15-16hz and is about -6dB around 10-12hz.

    How about that? Below 18hz. Pfft! Done that for years. At loud enough volumes to be tacticle. Deep bass below 30hz that is LOW distortion will not "sound" like anything other than pressure in your ears or room.

    Hi Scott,

    I was at Tony's this weekend where we played with the Bruce Thigpen's new invention. It was quite interesting to have 110-120dB of headroom down to the 1Hz range. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    While more than many here might be willing to invest in this fun/crazy hobby/obsession, Tony's theater and music system is highly impressive.

    Oh...well yeah! I wouldn't be mentioning my limited (compared to what I call the Thigpen resonator) extension if I had one or at least heard one.

    Ugh! Why did I have to miss CES this year?

    That little bundle of joy is still in the prototype stage, yes?

    Mark - You are correct. This thread should be condensed into a (maybe hyperlinked for each movie) more precise thread. Considering how many years this thread was spread upon its understandable that it is this big.

    "Die Another Day”

    Now that is just louder than rest of “James Bond” films, along with greater stunts etc, but it was the sound that I noticed, with one scene in the London Underground scene, “maybe you been down hear too long” as the train carriage arrives with a deep low rolling sound that is riveting and tearing up the home cinemas floorboards! With 115dbc! down to 25Hz but how far down is it reaching? It must be registering down to 10 or 15Hz, there about!?

    Ned- I didn't personally plot the dts "sparks" trailer. I've never seen it. I assume its on some new movie with dts or just some new dts demo disk.

    Since some of my waterfalls are being used I might as well join in.

    The dts sparks intro is from the Alive demo, it's very short compared to
    the digital experience and haven't seen it used on any discs yet.
