    I want to test my subwoofer. So, I'm looking for a DVD or CD that has test tones at different frequencies. Maybe someone can help me find what I'm looking for or help me DECIDE what I'm actually looking for. I want to be able to see the curve my sub makes. Thanx

    simple....Haunting DTS. The ultimate subwoofer killer.

    U-571 will blow a hole in the wall. The opening to Toy Story 2(THX logo on same disc is intense bass) Titan AE DTS is deep and loud. And Star Wars. Great use of the sub in that, especially the final duel. The hum of the blades is done through the use of the subwoofer. Neat effect. DTS JP is great(fixed DTS I mean), the opening credits shake the room.

    But the ultimate is still Haunting DTS. My sub cant even go as low as the movie wants to.

    Also, search for bass 305 on the web. The majority of all those "speaker testing" mp3's are stolen parts of bass 305 songs.

    Blue Man Group: Audio

    Lots of percussion instruments. Gives you a broad spectrum of drum sounds.

    For a good music disc that will give you a nice idea of how your system handles deep bass tonality, pick up the CD BADUIZM by Eryka Badu. The whole album has deep clear bass, but not the cheeseball driving-around-bumpin'-like-an-idiot crap.

    Thanx for all the replies. I'm going to try to download a few samples of each CD suggested before I pick one to buy. Thanx again!
