Anyone watch American sniper? Is it a Lone Survivor type flick, or am I just relating the war/navy seal thing more than it actually is?

I plan on watching it soon, but I can't say I have been in my HT watching a film, doing any BEQ, or anything LFE-related in nearly a month....too busy.

It has elements of that, but not as laser focused on the action as LS. Scenes not as well done, either, but other than Saving Private Ryan, not many war films compare. Bass is nothing to write home about.

Hey I checked this scene out after you posted and at reference with the subs 15db hot I still got nothing from this scene. I have roll off below 10hz and although the content was there just nowhere near anything to feel it. My amp was barely flickering too which means it didn't see much there. Curious what gear you were running and how hot your subs were to feel that?

 

Madaeel (Adam?) I am currently running 3 JTR Cap S2s in ~840 cubes on a suspended wooden floor. :)  I want to say when I ran this scene I may have been 3-5dB hot but I know it wasn't more than that because I always listen to new movies at reference, and the bass becomes overwhelming (to me) if I go much more than that. Typically, I run flat.  From memory, it was a quick "shutter" and then quickly transitioned to a "rolling" or "wobble" sensation.  It was just a neat feeling.  The "wobble" was quite a bit less pronounced than the "shutter", but was definitely present.  My FR begins to roll off at ~5hz and iirc ~5dB down at 4hz.  Measured with a calibrated CSL UMM-6 and REW.  I'm at work right now :ph34r:  and don't have the graph handy, but could provide it if you like.  I think I'll take this over to your thread to see if Bosso or MK or the other bass junkies on this site get anything out of it.  Besides, I've been meaning to congratulate you on your Raptors since day one... I don't think I ever popped in to say, Hello. ;)  :blink:

Must be a different mix/disc than the rental I used when it was first released. I would have noted it and probably graphed it. Even the peak hold Nube graphed doesn't show that content.

Yah I was thinking that. I figured you woulda loved that and never remembered anyone else mentioning it either. The content is there just VERY low levels. Definitely not anything like the cap showed off the disc. Curious what disc was used too.

Could you please add Paddington to your list. Or just measure the earthquake scene as the rest of the movie is void of bass.

Hmm.. could be.. I'll have to revisit this scene again this weekend and report back.  It's literally been a year or two since I've seen it.  You have me doubting myself, Dave.  If there's one man on earth that could reproduce it, it'd be you. :P  I do live in south Jersey though.. maybe Chris Christie was hobbling along outside my house during the scene. :lol:   I will admit though, it didn't feel as hot as that graph indicates... which would put it somewhat close to the lightning strike scene in WOTW as far as level goes.. no way it's anywhere near that!

MI4 Ghost Protocol well worth a watch. Great audio, bass was excellent too.

Yes a great moment. Kremlin explosion also very impressive. Took a look at the list of movies at the beginning of this thread and dug up whatever I hadn't watched in the 4.75 category. Nube had done a brief on it too giving it a good wrap. Pleasant surprise and probably the best one in the series IMO.

Hello. Is there a measurement for "the
7th son". Heard it had lots of bass though the movie itself bombs out of the box office.
