  1. I have not posted here in a while. So this is where all the old guys all hang. Old as in long time posters. Scott, good to see you still around.
  2. In the beginning of BvS where the plane collides with the alien ship there is a loud 6hz shudder! I knew right from the beginning it will sound good unless of course they pulled the DKR and had great intro and then filtered it. Nope, this one sounds great all around.
  3. Let's not get into whether you liked or not, this thread is about LFE content. Someone tell me how to run the numbers and I will do it.

    ZOD Audio M.A.U.L. Test Results and Discussion

    Wow, love it!
  5. I was forced to watch Whiskey Tango Foxtrot and I believe it has unfiltered bass, it had the same effects as BHD and Lone Survivor with the helicopters and even some parts reminded me FOTP plane crash(some parts, not the whole FOTP scene). This was coming from a Vudu HDX download.

    Deadpool: Discussion and Poll

    What I see here is a full band movie with a peak at 30hz. If it did not have a peak at 30hz it would look like the amazing Spiderman. The problem is with the Amazing spiderman one can crank it up to a 5 star level where to do this here it would make that 30hz peak too much. I did like this movie and the overall sound was good. I still prefer a cleaner track.

    My new Atmos room

    I did not know where to post this so I will just start a thread. I just got back from vacation and finally got pics. My panels are all DIY using denim and Ecose. The fabric is from ATS. The bass traps are 6 inches thick and the walls are all 4 inches. The ceiling are 2 inches. All of them are open back leaving a space to trap on both sides. My system is all behringer including the amps. Marantz processor running the show. What you can't see are the back subs which each bank of 215s and bass traps are sitting on. They are dual ported 18s. Actually all subs are the same, dual SI 18HT with dual ports.

    My new Atmos room

    It shows what works in my room. I have owned speakers with parts costing 10x the whole Behringer speaker. I also went through many audiophile higher end amps and processors as well. As for HT the whole is better than the parts and integrating into the room is the biggest factor IMHO. I don't care how good a single speaker is, will the damn thing work in your space for whatever reason. The Behringer has been measured and shows to be very good on axis to about 35 degrees and then starts getting peaky at the crossover. My treatments no doubt take care of those and makes them not harsh at all. Since owning the Pure 10 I knew from that day I loved the SEOS and DNA-205 combo as it was very smooth and detailed. The whole speaker just did not have the chops to take over what I already owned but knew a 15 inch version just might. Before I took the plunge on them I tried these cheap Berries and sure enough it reminded me of the SEOS sound but bigger and more dynamic. I have no doubt the sentinel will be a better sounding speaker but how much and if audible during movies is the question. Many have told me who heard both says the difference is not big enough for me to change. I probably will get a center to find out myself.

    My new Atmos room

    I did own the Fusion pure 10 and many other speakers before. I am just not sure it will be that much of a difference for a room like mine. The pure 10 and tempest were on the radar due to a built crossover. I am pretty good at hooking up wires lol. The pure 10s were better than the Sho-10s IMHO but the differences were not huge. I know for sure if I ever tear the wall down and start over I would buy 4722s and spread them out to the corners of the room and build the subs around them. Maybe 1299's too. I could actually fit those now but I don't like putting crossovers together. If there are DSP settings for them I could get an DSP amp to power them like the M2. I just think right now the size of the berries are really working in my space. If I hear a better front stage in the same space I would change that day like I always do.

    My new Atmos room

    I love trying things new toys. Max, if I could find someone to build me passive crossovers for DR-200's I would build them. I really like the simplicity of processor, amp, speaker with no EQ and letting the room do its thing. My room has the lowest noise floor ever with less in the chain. I hear zero noise at the horn when everything is on and set to reference. I would love to get Dr-200s with horns. I replaced the DR-250s with a DIY JBL speaker and then to the Berries. The reason was smoother sound but it has to do with crossovers. The DR speakers are still the most dynamic speaker I have heard to date and if I could soften the sound a bit my perfect speaker for cinema. Can anyone build a proper crossover to give a flat response at 1 meter? I also sealed up the baffle wall by building a huge enclosure to separate the speakers from the subs and the DR-250s no longer will fit. Why I mention the 200s. Porting the IB is just stupid crazy but I love it.

    I cross at 120 hz to my subs as that is the smoothest response and the mid bass is awesome from the subs. When I sit in the middle seat my height speakers are 9 feet away in every location and the surrounds are 7-8 feet. There is good separation from them all. You can clearly hear the wrap around effect going in a circle. I actually had the 215s mounted in front of the seats at first but it just did not have that much better separation and they were in the way. This way the separation is nearly as good and they are out of the way.

    Scott, my whole room is a compromise, the speakers are too big and too many subs LOL. You can clearly hear the separation still and sounds better than anything so far. I had to place speakers where everyone won't hit their head as well.

    That supporting poll is in the way too much.

    Yes, the kids even jump over to use the back seats. If I had 3 seats it would be different.

    The seats are too close to the wall to do that. I can only do so much with 68 inch ceilings too.

    It was an experiment, they are tuned to 7.xx hz in WinIsd but go to 4hz in room. It was like adding an LT without amp power but my enclosures were massive enough to try. I first tried it with my Fi IB3-18 drivers but they need to be sealed. Here is a scene with them

    The Wandering Topic Audio/Video Discussion Thread

    if the static charts say 99 dB at 10 the max output comparison charts only read 96-97. It seems to match up for the other other drivers, just curious. I usually just scroll through the comparison burst and then it really close I look further, not that I am changing anything anytime soon.

    The Wandering Topic Audio/Video Discussion Thread

    Ricci, on your measurements comparison you have the xxx hitting 96 and 97 dB max, not 99. Either way for $850 it was a great value, the mid bass lacked though compared to others now, like your 19(much more expensive) and the 24.

    Oh yeah, any Ds4's in the wild here? I see some builds on AVS.

    SI 4" coil DS4-18 info and discussion

    Hey Dave, I post here and there. I have been busy building my room for Atmos and all new 4-6 in bass panels with 2 inch ceiling panels. I can tell you for a HT addressing all first reflections points makes a huge difference in vocal clarity from off axis seats. I ported my IB just for fun, tuned them to 7hz, and added a Peavy IPR2 7500 as well. I changed all my gear to separates, Marantz and Inuke 4 channel amps, which has a zero noise floor(zero hiss from speakers, finally) and a new LED projector. I posted a spec graph of the same scene from my BEQ Transformers and it goes deep and powerful. It is crazy but in reality acts like a LT'd IB in my room.

    SI 4" coil DS4-18 info and discussion

    Hey Nick, you need to come by some time and listen to 12 of your HT-18's ported at 7hz in a 1430 cubic foot room. It is insane! It goes down to 4hz.

    Oh, I would not even know what the hell was going on until you posted. People jest about Klippel but I never knew what they were talking about, now I do.
