    Is THX getting into the replacement driver business?
    Looks like huge amplitude down to at least 10Hz. It does sound cool, though.

    The entire soundtrack was out of this world, literally. I'm excited to watch it again and again....easily the best sounding disc in my collection.

    Yeah that intro is great but I thought the T2 THX intro was better. Gruson, what is wrong with the soun on you TPM dvd? Mine sounded excellent.

    After watching the THX intro and pod race scene during lunch on my subless system (sold my Hsu TN1225 about 6-8 months ago), I ordered a CS Ultra within a couple hours. I can't wait to watch that disc the way it was intended! [​IMG]

    Gruson,
    I think I know what you mean. I was not impressed either....but I'm starting to think it's more due to the fact that I didn't like much of the movie than a technical deficiency. I did like some (yeah John K, the pod race was a cool sequence especially with a pair of SVS's), but on the whole, I didn't like it and that contributed to my less than stellar review of the soundtrack.

    I must be the only one whos THX trailer doesnt blow me away. When the ball blow up, it is just a shatter, there wasnt much bass. Right before it with the thunder was great. Hmmm.
    Maybe I just dont like because when I saw it for the first time in theaters, it pissed me off because it was a ripoff of the T2 trailer that blew this one away hands down.

    Yes, these are bruises from fighting. Yes, I am comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

    For yet another look at this KILLER DVD bass track, look at this new web page. Analysis straight out of the SVS R&D labs!
    http://www.svsubwoofers.com/tpmbasscharts.htm
    Tom's seen alot of killer bass before but little that exceeds TPM. If you have one sub, you might want another. If you have two you might want to double-check your calibration. For those that have contemplated an equalizer with a subsonic filter to help tame insane disks like this one, you have your excuse now.

    John K,
    You will definately not be disappointed with the CS Ultra. I watched TPM last night and I am still smiling. [​IMG]

    FINALLY!!!! Now we have proof that TPM has some incredible bass. I couldn't understand why people were complaining about there being little bass on the disk. I know that I was completely blown away watching the film with my Paradigm PW-2200.

    I have read some posts that TPM has weak bass but the graphs peaking at 30 Hz would indicate that if you have a very weak sub or no sub you would miss out on the effects almost entirely.
