Great isn't that exactly what we need - more loudness wars. That's a shame. And apparently I need different subs. I thought there were a couple of pretty deep bass moments but I know my subs' response drops off like a rock below about 28 Hz. I need another octave or so of extension.

yup, it wasn't as bad as the Hobbit where they filtered all the LFE below 50hz.., but I noticed it during the "warp out" scene .. it was loud but the extension wasn't there. this one they filtered all the LFE below 30hz... it's become a frustrating habit in hollywood lately to go on a "loudness" war and filter all the subsonic material in an effort to enhance the more aggressively heard frequencies in midbass
Thanks for that tidbit of info Mike. When I first saw Star Trek( not in theaters but on my system) the other night I reported the audio as being a bit lackluster( on the bass side). Thought it might be because I was tinkering around with my setup. But I couldn't help but compare it to the wonderful LFE in Oblivion! I would venture to guess that movie had no filter on LFE........anyways the rest of the soundtrack on Star Trek was great, I watched it again two nights ago, but still seemed to be lacking in bass for me. Now I know it wasn't just me.

I had the same complaint, then last night I watched it again and I checked my settings on the 4520... I had the 4520 set to stop the bass from going outside the room! I turned that off and I had plenty of bass.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

yeah, the amount of 30hz + LFE is incredible and forceful. it just loses some low end extension which is dissapointing for all of those with low tuned LLT's and sealed sub setups (I'm still using a horn based sub with a cutoff of about 24 hz but that's about to change this month )

Oblivion. Wasn't all that impressed with it and I couldn't watch it that loud as my daughter is just starting the recovery from a sports concussion injury.

I'd give the movie a 6 out of 10.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Since you brought up "the loudness war" comment, I was wondering just the opposite of what y'all are talking about. To me, it seems like so many movies now-a-days put more LFE in silly things, like scene changes or dramatic moments, that there are when LFE are called for (like things blowing up, or space ships coming in, etc..).
Anybody else know what I'm talking about?
There have been times the bass is almost a constant, so I end up turning off the amp for the infinite baffle sub. It's just too much needless bass.

Too keep some continuity with the thread, the wife and I watched and old school "blow stuff up" movie last night "Deep Impact".
The effects are certainly dated, but an entertaining movie regardless.

I know what you mean. Example towards the beginning of WWZ the bass was out there when nothing was going on but Brad and his wife taking in the kitchen

Deep impact is one of my favorites and I can relate with the bloated bass. Since I've placed a Subdude under my sub the effect has been tamed and is much more tolerable now. Pretty good investment if the LFE is sometimes overwhelming.

Yep. Even things like people getting punched or handguns being fired are accompanied by an unrealistic amount of bass that takes away from my overall enjoyment of the scenes in many cases. Then like you said, something explodes and you think, "where was the rumble"?
