Dakkon, the reason could be that my room has been treated with some absorbing/diffusing panels covering about one third of the room, plus carpet and furniture. if my room was mostly reflective surfaces, i would never be able to do that.

playing Super 8 at Reference Level sounds very realistic to what i see on the screen, and not exaggerated at all.

i do have some movies that don't play well at Reference Level; the one that surprised me most for that was LOTR Extended Edition on Blu-ray.

it's probably made to the same level as the DVD's were: reference level -7 dB is excellent, but using reference level itself is way overblown.

you're invited for a day if you want to come, and other Axiom owners too.

J.B. at reference level, i think my room would be well over 100db... Even at 1/2 of reference my room's sound level is 90db+ on average...


If i make it up to Quebec, it would be nice to stop by.

i just finished watching WOTW on Blu-ray at Reference Level.

the loudest passages registered 122.4 dBSPL (Flat weighting).
then i played again chapters 4 and 5, but this time with the SPL meter set at dBC; this time, the max reading was more according to the movie standards: 118.5 dBC.

the sound was always top quality, crystal clear and very detailed.

before starting a movie, i always crack open the door to my bedroom;
at the end of this movie, the crack was 5 inches wide. funny eh!

don't ask me about neighbors.
they all ran away a long time ago, just like the rats. ;-)

i checked again, and after 15 mins in standby, the Bash amp in the small sub consumes 18 Watts and the Sledge amp in the larger sub is at 8 Watts.
