My kids have this DVD so I went and put it in and booted them outside for a minute. It's a DOOM DOOM DOOM all the way. I honestly think it was hitting every corner of my house.

Anyone got a guess as to what that DOOM DOOM is going down to? ie: 20khz, 18khz etc

I just un-boxed a set of RBH t3's and calibrated the customers system. WOW! This system is killer.
Anyway, I played the Darla Scene and it is no doubt DOOM, DOOM AND DOOM all the way. The subs, yes two of them are Earthquake Supernova MKV 15's (overkill IMO).

ya know, tleigh's comment (affirming others' experience, including mine) makes me wonder if a system that makes a "tap" noise in that scene is really bottoming-out or distorting in some way. I was considering room acoustics as a culprit, but there are too many data points from reputable systems here to dismiss the idea that a "hard" attack in that scene is attributable to driver distress rather than intended soundtrack.

I don't want to sound harsh or anything but the system sounds like it needs recalibrating. I've heard this sound track more than I like on many systems other than Axioms and it has the same artificial sound (it is a cartoon you know) on some very reputable loud speakers. I have M80's and it gives me the same DOOM, DOOM AND DOOM sound effect. It is no doubt the sound track.

I hope this helps

Tom

It's not supposed to tap, if you're hearing a tap, that's in correct. The whole point of that scene is to feel the fear that being a tiny little fish does when someone huge like that bangs on the tank. Also when you hit a panel of glass it will vibrate and make moe a "DUB DUB" sound as you called it, try hitting a big wood table that isn't very solid, same thing. Because of Darla's size to the fish, a tap wouldn't resonat as well. Also it's a underwater sound which would distort the sound even more. Finally a "tap" sound is produced by the finger nail usually, and a hyper child wouldn't have that much control of their hand, they usually poke things with the finger.

Cheers!

I agree. We would all hear the tap tap on the outside of the tank and the Doom doom on the inside.

I'm with you Bigjohn, the whale scene when it lifts its tongue up and roars like its in heat is very impressive, almost like my EP350 takes a deep breath and says I hope your sitting down for this one because I'm about to scare the crap outa you....

I just listened to the Darla scene through my system (M60's and SVS PB1 ISD), and in the closeup tapping part I heard two sounds. The most pronounced was the bass "doom, doom, doom" but at the start of each strike I think there was also another sound, like her fingernail hitting the glass, but not real sharp and somewhat obscured by the booming sound.

When the point of view changes, and the receptionist/assistant looks through the doorway at Darla, the sound becomes a very mild tapping from the external perspective, not the booming sound that the fish are hearing inside the tank.

I then took the DVD up to the bedroom, where we have a DVD player hooked up to a 20-year-old TV without any external amp or speakers. Without much of any bass capability, the "doom" sound was mostly gone, and the closeup of Darla tapping was more of a "doing, doing" sound, or maybe closer to the "tapping" that GaryG expected.

Boy it's hard to describe this without sounding ridiculous! I have to believe, though, that my Axiom/SVS delivered the sound that was intended, as so many others have expressed already. Perhaps it doesn't sound right if one hasn't heard the full effect before.

I'm starting to feel ridiculous for being the only one here that doesn't own this DVD. Though I have seen it.
