Just to clarify my question: With his setup there was no typical glass tap sound. That is, if I wasn't watching the TV & didn't know that this movie was playing, I wouldn't have been able to make out if somebody was tapping on a glass bowl or if somebody was knocking on some other surface. After that experience, I do take the Finding Nemo disk whenever I am auditioning other systems at audio shops. Some may have not been as powerful (/thunderous/room-shaking/what-ever-you-want-to-call-that) as that Axiom-SVS combo, but most of them did reproduce the distinct glass tap note.

Maybe it was just some wierd setup issue or something at his place, but I wanted to get feedback from other Axiom/SVS owners as to what they hear in this scene. And since I am not finding any other such system owners in Chicago area, I am not able to do another audition.

Thanks,
Gary

got to remember....that is how the fish were supposed to be hearing it.


I wonder how they know what it would sound like to the fish. I have visions of a sound guy forcibly being held submerged in a big fish tank while one of his cohorts taps on the glass.

In reply to:

like it might sound underwater to tiny ears if someone tapped hard on the glass wall.


Fish don't have ears, then have something that is called "lateral lines". Look at a typical aquarium fish, you'll see a line that starts at their head and goes all the way to their tail. Because of these lateral lines, fish hear very well and tapping on aquarium glass very likely sounds like an explosion to them!

By the way, the Darla Tapping scene is by far the most thunderous test I've seen of my PC-Ultras so far!

I must not have my sub calibrated very well...the more I watch the tap scene the less I'm impressed. To me there are a lot more scenes that rattle me in this movie than this scene. Just my take really though.

BTW, I'm an Axiom/SVS owner. I'd say the doom, doom sounds accurate. Just not as rump shaking as other parts is all I was saying.

i can agree misfit.. the 'tap' scene is just so memorable cause she taps over, and over, and over, and over.. so the numerious BOOMS, BOOMS, BOOMS kinda stick in your head.. to me, the lowest bass is when the whale makes one of his grunts.. its kinda of a slow, lazy grumble-roar.. its as impressive, if not more so, than the tap scene.

people say the depth charges on U-571 are very impressive also.. havent seen that yet..

Great movie... even though I didn't have my setup when I saw it!

Guy would have been either Teamster or IA... so he would have been snarling while he did it... and gotten 3x scale.

Hell, if he was gettin' 3x scale I'd a thought he'd be smilin' not snarlin'.

I know it shook the heck out of my house.



Nice analogy, spiffnme! From the perspective of the fish in the tank, that's probably what they would say about Darla's tapping too!
