I highly recommend, Bill.... smile


I agree. I don't have a sub yet but the first scene when Poseidon steps on the ground and the scene in Iron Man when he enters sonic speed to go to Afghanistan are the only 2 scenes that where able to make one of the woofers on the M80s rattle. Since then I got a replacement.
Even though I'll get a subwoofer in the future, I am still amazed on how much bass the M80s are able to output. I just finished watching Avatar at reference level and damn, was ever my floor shaking smile

If memory serves that scene should be great. I will have to try it.

I think Dean was unimpressed with the bass in it? I actually bought the Blu-ray when it got cheap, but I still haven't watched it. In fact, I've NEVER watched the movie. How sad am I?

Yeah, when he emerges from the water ceratinly comes to mind and another decent sequence occurs when Percey enters Medusa lair, but that battle atop the roof with Percy and Luke was epic. I have Avater, but the LFE in this movie is better..IMO.

The last airbender. Although it's more of a kid's movie, it's worth watching for the special effects and soundtrack alone. Lots of LFE there.

Watched Pixar's 'Up' with my kids on the weekend. We had it quite loud. I went upstairs during the movie to get them some snacks and all of the sudden my kitchen floor is shaking and feels like the house is exploding. I went running back downstairs and ask my son what scene just played.

Long story short - the scene where they escape the bad guy and the rock pillars start falling over like dominoes. The kids loved the bass too so we replayed that scene 3 times before finishing watching the movie! Now that's a proud parenting moment! cool

You can have my 3 year old. I'll even ship him for free.
