  1. Saw Star Wars in Gold Class which is the premium seat theatre here. I walked out with a headache and bass was average (in the theatre). Never experienced headaches at home and played much louder. This is the only movie I've watched since hocking off my gear. Depressing.
  2. Motorcyles! I'll still be lurking from time to time so I keep fresh on the latest and greatest right here. Lukeamdman's "basic amplifier thread" is piquing my interest at the moment.
  3. Enjoyed this site immensely and thanks to everyone who's given advice along the way. Sold all my gear today so will no longer be able to vote! Pursuing another passion. Really great site here and I've spent many hours following other threads because they hold much interest even though much of it went over my head. Bosso if I can get one of your systems to Australia I might be knocking on your door when I decide to get back into it.
  4. Haven't seen it mentioned anywhere here but cult classic Kung Fu Hustle on bluray had some nice bass moments in it. It is a subtitled movie but a great one at that.
  5. I've got Captivators with 17Hz port tune. I find Star Trek not to be at all lacking even though I don't experience full bandwidth effects. However when I watched this for the first time something was amiss. Can't recall exactly but I think it was just after I moved house and hadn't EQ'd properly. I didn't get what the fuss was about but redid the EQ and it was night and day. A great bass movie. Oh.... And welcome to Data Bass.
  6. Watched Monsters Dark Continent today. Didn't love the movie but a couple of decent bass scenes in it. Although I really didn't see all of the movie to be honest so don't take this review as gospel.
  7. Some good scenecaps from Bosso in "The Equalizer" thread already voted on a little while back. Covers some of the big hits. Also some caps (Bosso again) back in the "LF films 2014" thread and "Low frequency content" thread as well as some robust discussion about this film.
  8. Nube. Got Jupiter Ascending ready to go tomorrow. One vote closer to the end for that one. Wish I could watch the damn things earlier except for the bloody release to video here in Australia. Movies released in the cinema at the same time as U.S but video releases are two months behind. WTF?
  9. Had seen "The Haunting" mentioned over the years but just watched it for the first time today on DVD. Got to say it was very impressive and the movie wasn't too bad either. Reminded me a bit of the "Ragnarok" mix as far as bass is concerned. Very good.
  10. 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.
  11. How about the Club scene from John Wick. A super cool scene this one just revisited it myself only hotter this time than previously. Not sure if it belongs in this thread but pounds for some time.
  12. Yeah my wife hates them. I picked up the 5.5's new but all the rest I've bought used for dirt cheap so couldn't resist. I feel like my system is sort of like the millennium falcon "Not much to look at but can make the jump to light speed".
  13. Anybody know anything about PROEL Amplifiers? Specifically the HPX6000? Cheap but are they a piece of crap for sub duty? Can't find much on them.
  14. The audio in this was outstanding IMO. Lots of detail and brilliantly done. The bass is also excellent but not in a gratuitous way, sort of like an iron fist in a velvet glove. It's not laid on thick but is so clean and immersive. It's this reason I'm giving it five stars, not because there's lots of it but because what's there is uncorrupted with a couple of excellent demo scenes.
  15. "It's a nice, fairly clean mix (unlike the upcoming 30Hz blockbuster that everyone's raving about because it's so loud). " Interstellar?
  16. What do you guys think about the Crown 9000i Macrotech amplifier? Quotes 8Ohm bridge at 6000W. I already have a Crown XLS 5000 and it is rated 20Hz with rolloff below that (how much I'm not sure). The specs say rolloff below 20Hz also for the 9000i but would this mean similar or the same to the XLS5000 rolloff? I am happy with the result to port tune using the XLS5000 but was looking at replacing my Behringer EP4000 which is power limited. The 9000i seems like it would be way more than enough power to run my Captivator but is that a bad thing if I don't use it all? I can pick up the 9000i for about $1200 used in Australia would like to know what others think about this amp.
