  1. "I could send you an SP4 at the drop of a hat." Testing that bad boy would be interesting. They output a lot of drivers, it only makes sense to see what they can do. I remember when talking to Scott at Fi, when ordering my IB drivers, iirc ... he explained since they're typical sales were primarily car audio, they can essentially customize many of their offering's parameters more aligned to a HT user's needs. Whether or not they still mix and match various pieces, I don't know. Josh, thanks for all your work ... tremendous.
  2. Nube, thanks for the heads up about the splitting of the forum topics ... Bass Gear, and Bass Content, had no idea and likely wouldn't have noticed. The bass content is just fantastic. The bass gear is too, but I just wish there were more gear discussions/contributions, because the contributors around these parts is certainly high quality. Thanks for the heads up.
  3. Yeah, that gtg, like the January gtg, looked like a good one. Having met the principals involved at the Jan Heavyweights gtg, I knew it'd be a lot of fun. Those guys know how to do it up. As I said repeatedly in my huge review of the previous gtg, I found the best part is placing a face to a name and meeting like minded enthusiasts. This particular group possessing strong and unfiltered zeal for all relevant aspects of these gatherings. Josh and I discussed carpooling to the previous gtg, but it just didn't work out. Josh, I'm glad you achieved what you wanted with the break ... sounds like a wise move. Looking forward to your further work with Audioholics.
  4. $175,000,000 budget for this thing! While they're throwing that type of money around, just throw out everything below 40hz too ...
  5. "Gravity for me was the single best bass experience I have ever had. Phenomenal in all areas. 5 star hands down for me." Wow, very cool. As I shared in the poll thread, saw it in the theater, can't wait to check it out at home.
  6. Finally got the opportunity for Elysium, really enjoyed the spectral balance ... Nube was right .. it's got the stuff, and I really enjoy the way the effects were implemented (sound design). Few big bombastic broadband high level effects, but the deep pulsating stuff, the room shaking energy,... was both appropriate for the scenes and well executed. The movie, decent but that's another review. Again, the balance ... lovely, few if any crushing, reach for the volume effects. Just the deep stuff, loved the sound of this one because of the balance Nube, thanks for graphing this one, some good demo worthy material, I'd have to view it again to single out my faves. Thanks
  7. We too watched Rush last night. I echo much of the sentiment, a fantastic film with nice balanced mix that never draws attention to itself. It really captured the 70's quite well, IMO. The portrayal of the F1 scene, but focused primarily just on these two players, just refreshingly good for a racing film,... most suck, this didn't. I'll elaborate more about ST specifics in another post. Highly recommended. Ron Howard did a great job, I saw countless period details that were spot on.
  8. "As usual, thanks to those that put this thread together. This is my goto thread for movie bass. I don't even look in the other bass thread anymore." ^ this, +1 Yep, made that switch back in '12, there is no stronger, soundtrack savvy group than the core of this thread.
  9. Nube, just a thank you for the hidden spoiler approach, thanks for that. It's tough discussing these things and looking for recommendations, yet not wanting excessive details that may ruin the enjoyment of a movie night. Actually, I enjoy knowing as little as possible, the discovery seems to add so much.
  10. Thanks for all that Nube, much appreciated, that's a lot of work. . Looking forward to the opportunity to check out Elysium, exceptional sound, that's intriguing. wrt De Niro, he can do comedy I guess, but I like him more in his classic, stereotypical roles myself. He had another surprise appearance on SNL this past week, it was pretty good ... for what it was. I like the new cast, fwiw. On an unrelated note, performing some testing yesterday, damn the 50cal scene in Hurt Locker is a mammoth effect, one of my faves.
  11. Josh, is the "happy little guy" the Schlafly K├Âlsch, or the fat tire surround ... subwoofer? what's the SI driver in the pic? I'm not familiar with it, but that's some surround ... Looking forward to your Audioholics reviews, always solid stuff there. Thanks
  12. Sealed JBL 2242HPL 25Hz vented AE TD18H+ Apollo Sealed AE TD18H+ Apollo MTX 9515-44 tiny passive radiator box with dual 15" VMP's (18 and 30Hz tunings to correspond with typical HT and car audio tunes) Extra small sealed LMS 5400 Ultra and larger sealed MTX 9515-44 tests (to collect data to have directly comparable very small sealed and medium sized sealed for each driver and use to evaluate the effects on output, distortion, sensitivity, etc...) LMS 5400 Ultra dual 18" VMP passive radiator system with 18Hz and 30Hz tunings BMS 18N862 Sealed AE TD15M Apollo sealed and vented (need to build a 15" enclosure for vented.) ^ ^ ^ All good stuff there, especially interested in anything related to the AE TD18H+ Apollo But this; I also have a number of investigative things I would like to do like measuring the gain of at least a few more vehicles and rooms and doing some distortion measurements with push pull drivers versus push push. Is very, very cool. Reciprocal gains from the room, push-pull experiments, great stuff ... love to read it. Keep us informed/let us know how to help. Something I think would be an asset to the work you're doing here is better quality free air driver excursion videos. Please, no offense intended, however the previous ones could certainly be better. As always, if there's something needed from the community here, I'd think the majority would sure like to help. I can't speak for everyone, but I know I'd help most anyway I could. Thanks for everything.
  13. ^ This ... good stuff, especially the Orbit Shifter. Although I'm an IB/multiple sealed dude, I suspect the Orbit Shifter is really something special, whereas a properly blended pair would likely please even the most hearty appetite. The SpeakerPower amplifiers are a huge component of the success and subjective goodness that both Seaton and JTR enjoy. Those amps are everything most anyone wants in a sub amp. So yeah, like Infrasonic, I'm interested in the OS being tested too. I know full well what the SubM is capable of. Again, I agree with the Utilimax, the SI 24", and the AE TD18h+ Admittedly, all that is a wish list and maybe tough to pull off, but it'd sure be interesting reading. "prototype LMS-R2"
  14. JSS, I want to make clear, I unequivocally agree on all points. What blows me away is that these armchair quarterback critiques from myself for example, aren't based upon subjective elements of their work. These are the most fundamental tenets of recording/mixing ... preserve the FR of the signal path and recorded event, maximize signal/noise, and no audible clipping! Poor execution of their craft, at best. At worst and in my opinion, these are termination of employment offenses. Primum non nocere, or as Chris Carter would say, c'mon man!
