    I don't know about anyone else but Pearl Harbor has some deep bass during the attack scene. Aside from the excellent mix on this film regarding the center, fronts and surrounds, the LFE on this movie is incredible and it is surely going to test the many subs on this forum.

    Has anyone else experienced the sound effects on this DVD and if so, did it test your SUB?

    There is some serious low end in this sound track. If you have the subs, get out the spackle to fix the walls.

    I agree. Even the dramatic scenes with no action draws some serious bass for emphasis.

    Geez fellas...as much as I am a home theater geek, I can't find anyone to sell me DVDs early[​IMG]
    I'm VERY excited to get this DVD...saw it in the theater two times and I've anxiously anticipated its release. I'm glad to hear the sound is great and I look forward to watching and listening to this one many, many times.
    ...so what is the secret to getting DVDs before the release date? I know, I know...you could tell me, but then you'd have to kill me[​IMG]

    That explosion is absolutley POWERFUL!!! Did you hear the many different tones of the various explosions during the attack scenes? This is one disk that will convince anyone if they need to get a new sub or not. My Acoustic-Visions sub came right in the nick of time and handled the explosions accurately and made me very proud. Although I wouldn't be surprised if there was some real low stuff below 20HZ on this disk.

    Martice,

    Yes I did hear the different tones. The scene when the nurses come out to the yard because they have no idea what is goin on they are told to go to the hospital, those deep off screen explosions are awesome.

    POWERFUL - YES it was. But, not nearly the intensive aerobics that THE HAUNTING (DTS ES) was.

    You think Elbert? I thought the USS Arizona blowing up and lifting up out of the water contains not only powerfully audible bass but it sends a inaudible bass wave that attempts to throw me off of my couch everytime I hear it.

    I'm going to do some direct comaprisons tonight.

    Psst. I should have Jurassic Park 3 this Tuesday. I hope it doesn't dissapoint audio wise.
