Having people over this coming up weekend and was wanting to know which movies that could make my friends queasy Posted Image. I know there's a list of low bass movies on the SVS website but aren't those just snippets? I need something that has low bass throughout. I have a room that's about 14x18x8. SVS 25-31 (22hz tuned). Properly calibrated....i think. Posted Image

That gives you a good idea of the better ones. Another good one that may or may not be on the website is Twister.

Make a CD with a 22hz test tone and loop it. 30 minutes of that will probably make them naucious. What I like to do is overlap a 10,000hz tone with a 23hz, and do fast sweeps from 5,000 to 10,000. Makes my dogs run outside and I have to plug my ears if I play it loud. Anways, the bass movie demo I do for friends: Titan AE - Ice crystal chapter Star Wars EP1 - THX intro, pod race scene The light sabre fight scenes sound amazing at reference level Matrix - Helecopter explosion, lobby scene, beginning sequence Oceans 11 - hotel demolition Harry Potter - (just to make them queasy) jk

If you got a large RPTV, try

IMAX - "THE LIVING SEA" - dts & Dolby Digital 5.1

... made my daughter slightly sea-sick viewing this DVD on my 16:9 50" Toshiba HDTV!! Posted Image I told I'd warn her the next time I play "The Living Sea" DVD again, so she could take Dramamine.

Lost in Space (initial ship exploding, launch sequence) Desperadoes (initial bar fight, second bar fight, library explode, fight with friends) Contact (wormhole) DAS BOOT (many good effects such as attack on the sub's integrety due to water pressure and depth charge and much better than U571) Avengers (oops, what a stinker)

If you have the Bass Mekanik v5.0 CD you have to use track #18 titled 'System Checka'. It is one of the most disturbing tonal sweeps I've ever heard and has made my wife run for the hills while threating to cut me off from everything sacred. :b The whole CD is nothing but bass on demand tracks and it will definitely test your subs chin. If you'd like I could 3 day a copy of the CD to you. In fact, I will make a copy this morning and take it to work with me in case you would like me to send it to you today. Just e-mail me and we'll hook it up. All I need is for you to repay the shipping costs.

Everyone else took my suggestions so nothing original, but my vote goes to Star Wars: TPM and Gladiator for movies with good, consistent bass and effects. The Matrix is no slouch either. --Steve

Check out the 20th Anniversary Collector's Edition of Tron. You won't be disappointed. It gave my SVS a real workout in almost every scene.

My show off DVD is usually U-571 and Das Boot. I love going from complete silence to thunderous bass. It kind of scares the hell out of whoever I am torturing at the moment Posted Image Here are the good ones.

Matrix
Toy Story 2
SW:TPM
U-571
Das Boot
The Haunting
Gladiator
Saving Private Ryan
Se7en
TitanAE
Fight Club
From Hell<---the "grape throbbing" scenes make my 2 SVS25-31CS+ very happy.

DVD's that will/or should have good bass when they hit the shelves.

Lord of the Rings FOTR / 2 parts stick out in my mind that had extremely awesome bass(that says a lot for a movie theater)1st after sauron is destroyed a wave of power envelops the land and gets pretty low. 2nd is the ring drop when Bilbo drops it before leaving BagEnd.

Monsters Inc. / Just look at the trailer on TS2

SW:AOTC / Could this be another DVD that is a must own due to the insane bass levels of it's prequel?

Many others probably...I just don't go to the movies that ofter so I couldn't tell you.

I like the first attack scene form Pearl Harbor. I turn it up to about 5db from reference and stand back. Your guests will know it's coming but there's nothing they can do to stop it.

When the second bomb explodes, it shakes the couch violently. It gets the wow's every time. Posted Image

Also, The JP3 intro is pretty cool. Starts off with a low rumble and just gets louder and louder. I'd say if you are looking to watch a whole movie, this is a pretty good one. Effects from beginning to end. And the movie isn't half bad either.

I'd recommend "Titanic". It made me queezy, but moreso from the story than the effects. Cheese usually has that affect on me! Posted Image

Actually, Titanic has some very good bass on it. It was also measured at ref cal to produce 109dB during a few scenes (though I don't remember which, but probably when the ship is breaking up). Saving Private Ryan DTS!!

I like to return to the T-Rex scene in the original Jurassic Park (DTS). Most folks are familiar with the movie and get a nice surprise when they find out what they've been missing.

Blackhawk Down If the explosions don't make him nauseous from the intense bass ass-kicking from the SVS, I'm sure the artery scene will. Running over to BestBuy during lunch to pick it up.

Martice, thanks very much for the offer. I'll do that and send it back. It's basically a setup disc for low frequencies?

Hey! I just realized that scence in SPR where the guys are all out there listening to the grammaphone when there's this low rumble in the distance. It gets louder and louder til the guys finally jump to see what's coming. Test: I wonder if anyone knows what freq. this is to gauge if your sub( SVS) is picking it up at the right moment..as the director intended.
