    My friend and are getting a few different subs to test out this weekend. Which movies or scenes would you guys recommend to give them a good workout. I've been trying my best to convince him to get an SVS, but he's not quite there yet. He'll learn someday. Anyway...I have a few I'm going to try out, like The Haunting and LOTR. What else can you recommend? Thanks in advance.

    Finding Nemo, Darla tapping glass.

    Beginning of Ice Age.

    Monsters Inc, when the little girl laughs.

    U571 depth charges.

    The Matrix 2.

    Underworld right in the very beginning is a LFE sweep if I remember correctly.

    Blade 2.

    I can keep going if you want.... [​IMG]

    I have Finding Nemo, Matrix 2, Monsters Inc, and Blade 2, so yes....please, keep going. I might get lucky and have most of the movies already. It'll save me from renting some....or worse, buying more!

    (1) Lord of the Rings 2: The Two Towers: chapter 42 I believe, when the fortress wall explodes during the battle at Helm's Deep.

    (2) Titan A.E.: at the very end (2nd to last chapter I think), when the Titan absorbs the energy and starts its Earth re-creation process.

    (3) The Fast and the Furious has some very nice engine rumbles during the first race in which Vin Diesel comes out the winner with his beautiful red Mazda RX-7 [​IMG]

    (4) Shrek: the dragon awakes and starts chasing Shrek, Donkey, and the Princess

    (5) Daredevil: during the bar fight there are some awesome subsonic frequencies in that scene (15-20 Hz)

    (6) The Italian Job: when they blow up the street from under the truck and the truck falls into the underground

    (7) X2: during the battle between Jean Grey and Cyclops, Cyclops zaps the wall and the dam starts to crack

    excellent. That should be good. I have most of the movies, so that's even better.

    He asked me if Playstation 2 games sound any better with a sub. I have no idea. I suppose it would depend on the game. Does anyone have any good experiences with PS2?

    In the first scene of The Two Towers when Gandalf strikes his staff on the bridge while battling the Balrog, there's a VERY deep bass wave that moves A LOT of air.

    The THX2 (The new THX trailor) like at the beggining of the recent Indy Jones box set.

    Play at reference type volume....

    Lesser subs will be flapping on that one for sure.

    Add Bad Boys II to your list, the gun fights and explosions are great! The gun fights have subsonic bass when being fired (AK-47's)by the Hatians, and Martin's gun at the end has some really low end when bust off a few rounds.[​IMG] [​IMG]
