Of course another way to do it is to use it as a CD player and blast Carmina Burana by Karl Orff through your speakers at max volume.     
They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care,
They pursued it with forks and hope.
They threatened it's life with a railway share,
They charmed it with smiles and soap

I have tried a few of the ideas you folks have had and have received some good bass out of my subs. All it takes is just a little tweaking. Thanks for all the help.

'War Of The Worlds' (2005).

I just watched it last night and I was very impressed with the thunder cracks as the aliens were being transferred to the tripods. Turn the gain up lil' and give it a try... It really is a very good effect...


Whoa. How about the scene where the tripod first emerges? When the ground is shattering, I thought my house was a goner as well! The consistent rumble was astonishing.

Opening scene of Star Wars Revenge of the Sith really pushed the limits of both my theaters. One using dual Atlantic Technology 350W Subs and the other theater using Dual JBL Synthesis System 3 Dual Subs. The fighter ship's thruster "sonics" really pushed the subs to the limit( Almost to a wobble).

Apocalypse Now, = There is  that scene where they dropped the boat in the river near chapter 7, (Beach Party ? ), when there is Air 'action' up the river ( before the Ride of the Val-ekes Scene ) I believe it was Lance or the Chef that said " Airborne "..,
There is a terrific rumbling in the distance that will vibrate the pictures off the walls..

Try the club scene in Collateral. The music is a constant, mind numbing prescence, which makes the gunfight all the more impressive. The pistol shots ring out so clear, with a real punch. Just don't have your sub too high for when the shotgun goes off...

If you realy want detailled information about subwoofer friendly tracks, check this page out
http://www.svsound.com/questions-faqs.cfm#moviedemos

Although I am pissed at the people of svs, I don't want you to miss this nice summary of low bass movie tracks.

PS. I'm pissed of, because I would like to buy an SVS Tube subwoofer, but they recently decided that people, not living in the States, should buy at certified dealers, who can only sell Cubical subwoofers.

So I'm stuck here in the Netherlands without a decent subwoofer.

Why be so cruel during Christmas season????


That really does suck!!!  However I must say that I bought my SVS sub over a year ago and it is awesome, I love that company!!!

I heard that at the recent CES show in Vegas, the DTS Demo or some demo booth used the scene from Finding Nemo where Darla kept tapping on the aquarium glass!!!

Since I cannot buy the SVS sub, I have set my mind to my other audio components and bought a Denon avr-3608 7.1 receiver and 2 front speakers B&W 303s3 and a B&W center speaker c60 or something.
the rears are my old satelites from Pioneer, as is my UNDERDIMENSIONED subwoofer.

My woofers make up something, but I still lack the real deep sounds.
