They all have, like most movies, STRONG bass in the mid 20's with some lower levels in the 15 to 20 Hz range. When you watch the graph, for example, with "The Incredibles", you can see the 115 dB stuff at 28 Hz with some 95-100 dB stuff in the 15-20 Hz range.

By the way, I am liking this subwoofer a LOT.

Great to see ya up to your usual self...torturing another sub :^D

There is some sub 20 Hz stuff in the opening credits (1 minute in) of Day After Tomorrow, as well as when the ship hits the bus underwater and the chopper scene.

Also, in Man On Fire, also during the opening credits, starting at 2 minutes and change, there is a pulse that has some sub 20 Hz undertones.

Great sub. I've had my eye on this one and looking forward to the whole scoop!

Dave! Great to have you here! Guys, bossobass is a regular over at av123 (though I don't know, nor do I care, if he owns any Rocket gear). He is one of the most knowledgeable sub guys I've come across. In fact, he created a Subwoofer Setup Guide that any of you who are sub freaks, or those who are merely interested in learning more about using a subwoofer, might find interesting.

If you treat him courteously, you will find him a very helpful font of good information on subs, their setup, and their operation.

I'm so glad you've stopped by, Dave. I hope you'll pop in now and then.

Hi ya Bosso ! We own DAT and Man on Fire - Thanks for the heads up. I will be watching DAT with my son tonight. My wife and daughter are out of town for a wedding. We are having a Dad and Sons weekend - this should be fun.

Craig, as I recall "HellBoy" had some good stuff, esp. in the opening scene with the portal sucking things into it.

Another one is Spiderman 2, when Doc Oc fires up the reactor thingamabob!

I am unsure of the frequency but the scene in "Pirates of the Caribbean" when Elizabeth falls into the water and the pirate coin necklace floats out of her bodice, there is a (appropriate term?) bass "thrum" that occurs which is also displayed by a ripple in the water that the Royal Navy guys react to..."What was that...?"

The scene in LOTR - Two Towers with Golem, Sam and Frodo in the Dead Marsh when the Nazgul flies over on the's wing manipulation has an impressive bass hit to it as well...

Although you probably know about these...

I read somewhere that the THX intro with the lighting and exploding ball had some good LFE down to single digits.

It does, but at much lower levels than the appx. 30 Hz frequency. I confirmed this on the Twin SVS Ultras in their 12 Hz setting.

What about the opening of Girl With a Pearl Earring? That's probably already in the disc changer for Father/Son weekend anyway . . .
