Well crap... just to revive an old thread.

I wanted to hear the Darla Tap scene, so I went out and rented Shark Tale. Watched the whole d*** movie then realize I RENTED THE WRONG DVD. Darla Tap is in Finding Nemo, not Shark Tale !!

Oh well, it was still a fun movie. The whole DVD seemed pretty quiet though -- normally watch at -10 for "loud" but even at -5 this was pretty mellow...

actually that's kinda funny.

You should come to my house and watch Nemo for the upteenth time w/ my 3 year old. I really need a best of DVD that only has about 5 scenes she likes...

Funny you say that.
I had an audition on Sun. and besides a great bottle of wine, the auditioneer left me with 3 great test dvds.
Each dvd has multiple out takes (Darla Tap among them) from several movies, some in DD, some in DTS, all cataloged nicely.
Thanks Steve W.

WHAT?! There’s more than 1 cartoon fish movie? I thought the other one was about ants or bugs. Oh, wait, there were 2 of those. What about that story of toys?… Oh, yeah, that had 2 movies too… maybe all these cartoons come in his and hers pairs.

I’m glad this thread got revived. I was just recently listening to the Darla scene and wondering if my system was working right because I thought I remembered some higher pitch tapping on our old TV speaker, but I sure don’t using the Axioms and subwoofer. Nice to have confirmation that I’m hearing the same thing everyone else is, a very big DOOM, DOOM, DOOM.

Someone would make some money selling that DVD to parents. Why? Because almost all Disney movies have disturbing scenes (to toddlers) that kids ALWAYS want to skip.

Disturbing Disney

Curious if anyone's ever found a reason why so many Disney movies are like this.

Scroll down a few post in this link and you'll see the freq waterfall for the Darla tap scene. The red indicates where the strong bass in the 30Hz - 35Hz region. There's bass below 10 Hz, but it's not nearly a strong as the 30 -35Hz stuff.

Great bass scene thats intended to sound like a boom, boom not a tap. Like others have said it's supposed to be from the perspective of being in a tank of water.

Yep, my little one watches Nemo almost daily.

So, he's watching it the other day and I notice a funny rattling sound coming from my Hsu STF-2 during the more bass-y parts. It turns out he had stuck a small plastic fire hydrant into the rear port and the vibrations rattled it down into the sub. I laid the sub face down and fished the toy back out through the port.

I really feel out of place

My Mains have no mids, and my sub has no ports.

Anybody else here who dosen't have to worry about toys in their subs, by running a sealed unit?

(I Have had toys in my M50s though)

(Actually, I run a sealed sub cause that's the direction life took as it marched by, and it does help keep the neighborhood sub wars truce in place)
