I've ordered a EP500, so a sub crawl (or for me sub slide my bad knee butt around the room) is in the near future.

Is there any media (movie or music) that you all would recommend for the exercise?

Thanks

Jeff

I have seen Transformers recco'd before. I have yet to do the sub crawl - I have one of the DVE calibration discs and it has a low frequency sweep that you can put on repeat. I thought about using that as well.

Hi Jeff,

There are the classic almost-over-the-top DVD or Blu-ray movies: the remake of War of the Worlds (use the parts where the footfalls of those big pod things stomp around); U-571 (the depth charge explosions) and the cave sequence from that movie with Robt Downey Jr., the name of which I can't recall.

For music, other forum members who are in touch with modern pop/rock will have suggestions.

The Holly Cole Trio CD with the track "I Can See Clearly Now (the rain has gone)" has very well recorded string bass and vocals.

Older jazz CDs with good string-bass include "We Get Requests" (Oscar Peterson Trio); Time Out (Dave Brubeck), etc.

In classical, almost any Telarc disc with the Cincinnatti Symphony or Atlanta Symphony has really terrific orchestral bass drum. Also Reference Recordings classical.

Regards,

Check out the movie "9". It has some great bass scenes in it.
