  1. Good "bass tester" for Xbox-360

    Battlefield Bad Company 2 was pretty good. The first Dead Space had great sound.
  2. You will. Exams end eventually. Aww. Yep. Lots of surface area. Proper midbass reproduction. First-most, they are there for front/rear sub blending. Used for smoothing the response of the whole. At the time, there was no intention of a sub riser so in a way I thought they would be "nearfield" but I chose to take that road after every one else started putting their subs AT their seat. Like, 1" away. So I can't really call them nearfield these days cuz they are about 3-4ft away. The subriser is the nearfield sub.... now. It's not. Just a step up. Idk... about an inch or so behind the motor. Plenty of room around the drivers though. No. Not necessarily. You have the opportunity to actually choose your drivers. I had two on hand and made it work. My riser both fits into the room and is ideally sized.
  3. Actually, the whole system is quite underpowered but that's okay because I make up a lot with the very high sensitivity. Having a subbass system that is >100dB sensitive means cool running amps too. There are seven subbass enclosures in my HT room. Six identical dual-opposed sealed enclosures. Four up front, two in rear. Each approx. 8cuft each. Four up front house the eight Stereo Integrity HT18's. The two in the rear house four Sound Splinter RLp18's. Then the riser with the last two SS RLp18's. The riser is very simple. Top and bottom are just some 5/8" or 3/4" plywood. I don't remember exactly. *laughs* Not even really high end stuff either but solid. The walls are made from 2x8's cut to the length I wanted for this size. There is a single 2x4 in the middle (running between the two drivers). The extra baffle pieces were added to accommodate the depth of the RLp driver. The riser is the only enclosure I've ever built that I didn't really "design". Just thought it up in my head and then simulated to "make sure". Certainly couldn't simulate how it was going to feel. Had to build it to really know for sure.
  4. Right. Don't worry about it. You'll get what you get. I don't see it as a "problem" but more of an unknown, for you. Don't worry about it. I don't see how it would help out in your case at all, no. But... my riser is powered by a single Behringer Europower 4000, bridged to a 4ohm load (two 8ohm drivers in parallel). My entire front sub-bass system is power by a single Cerwin Vega CV5000 running stereo 2ohm. The two rear subs are powered by a single Behringer iNuke 4-6000, bridged to two 4ohm loads.
  5. Yes of course I did. Although I was using the Omnimic system, if that counts. Noting this, "fine tuning" my riser system had more to do with feel than how it measured audibly. Trial, error and time listening to (feeling?) actual program material is a major part of the process. It's just not very scientific sounding.
  6. Will do. I do know that the Xcurve is not baked into the actual mix. This EQ is part of the calibration of the system in the room itself. Not apart of the mix. "compared to how things work for music (no standards) and "home mixes.." Well... now see. That's the problem. You're conflating issues that exist across a varying multitude of different circumstances, layouts, equipment, expectations, etc. What can be applied as good methods for one market will not yield identical results in another. You're probably going to go on a long thing about inroom response and different attenuation levels and response shapes and all that stuff. Large room acoustics =/= small room acoustics. Omg... who'd of guessed. Well. You didn't have to. There are parts in what you say that are accurate and some that are wildly inaccurate. But that's okay. I'm too lazy (and at work ) to even bother correcting anything. Either way, I already look like an asshole and just don't have it in me to defend my own statements. Ya'll believe whatever you want to believe. Don't have the energy to debate against full audiophile mode. Sorry. I just enjoy movies, enjoy how they are made (even when it frustrates me) and like to replicate the cinema experience at home. *shrugs* Lol, I have outlived my usefulness on these audio boards. I'm just here to have a good time.
  7. While this is true I wouldn't use this as any kind of metric to justify anything less capable. You know.... unless you have to.
  8. I'd have to double-check with my friend but... I think the X-curve is no longer a thing in modern cinema mixes. Afaik, that stopped in the 90's/2000's when sound started being delivered in uncompressed PCM. We have better screen materials these days and better compression horn technology.
  9. Yeah. It's definitely been his MO since TDKR. Hey... don't think I don't agree with you. But if that's what the guy wanted it to sound like, who am I to argue? Well.... that's a good question! Let's argue about it. Usually this particular subject revolves back to dialog intelligibility and Nolan has had plenty of very mainstream news about that sort of thing with all his past movies since TDKR. Christopher Nolan is excellent at story telling but dude-bro needs to get his hearing checked or something.
  10. Well.... it was intense. As A/V nerds we may scoff at the thought of this Satan-bred, pure-evil stuff called "clipping" but like it or not, it did have the desired effect. It's fucking loud. It's harsh. I'd imagine it was on that beach...and in all the various marine vessels...and in the Spitfires being shot at. All his films are mixed like this. Would expect nothing different from Nolan.
  11. Nothing to be ashamed of. A flat PvA is no indication at all that the rest of the mix will sound good whatsoever.

    Honestly, I use Bose bluetooth around-the-ear headphones. I like the convenience.

    Better late than never. Now you get to move them.

    Were they attached to sharks, at least? Yes, indeed. I'm sure there is a good reason why they chose this specific driver for the task. But also... ...wasn't this an under-hung driver? IIRC, the sealed version of this system used an over-hung version of the driver. Should definitely change some paramters... ...but just doesn't seem like an optimal driver for the alignment. Welcome to DB, ITR. Good stuff.
