I didnt notice when i first got my sub because i was to caught up in the craze of having it. It's either the complete opposite of what i THOUGHT subs were supposed to sound like or there's something wrong. It all sounds the same so it's just...boring. So what's with that, everybody else likes it but i dont? I like it for music cause there's actually material there that you can tell sounds different with your ears. With movies it's pretty much the same exact thing over and over it's just sometimes it's louder then others. The Forgotten trailer in Hellboy is my newest example, same sounding bass noise over and over again, why isnt there any outstanding diversity in the sound? It basically just sounds like loud thunder (the deep shaking part of thunder that comes after the loud crash), a shake machine if you will, instead of what i've previously interupted in my head as bass. So what's the deal, is something wrong or is it just not what its cracked up to be. Im alittle frustrated cause it's like...how could i not be satisfied? Bass is supposed to be such an uplifting thing that gets to yah but this is definetly not doin it. By the way it's calibrated, and wouldnt make a difference cause it still sounds the same..just stands out more. Speakers are set on small, bass is at 0, LFE level is at 0, Crossover is disabled, 20hz mode with one port plugged, phase 180 degrees, Gain 1/2, 2-3db hot, 13ft away diagonally, in a corner very close to the wall. According to my sound meter i've played my subwoofer really loud. But i havent gotten any stuff like pant legs flapping or feeling the bass in my chest. The only thing that's ever happened is slowly but surely the bass caused a landslide of stuff in a shelf in the kitchen cabinet. My vision went blurry during matrix revolutions when the drill was comming through the top of Zion. My brother and my friend were unimpressed to cause they noticed the same problem. So im hoping there's something wrong.
