Talking Got a new Infinity sub for my HT

Infinity PS212 400 Watt RMS / 700 Watt Peak
12" Driver
25 - 150 HZ Freq. Range
50 - 150 HZ Crossover
Auto on/off
Phase control
LFE & Line Level Inputs

I test tone calibrated my system with my SPL meter to 85 dB with reference volume being 105 dB. This sub puts out thunderous bass and is clean at high volumes without distortion. It's a fairly decent musical sub as well, but it's more for HT. It hits pretty damn hard considering it's working in 6,100 cubic ft. of air space.

Movie test settings: Master volume at -12 dB, sub crossover 120 HZ, sub gain 40%, and receiver sub speaker level +2

Movie#1 Finding Nemo (The infamous Darla tapping the fish tank scene!)

Results: This will hit you in the chest and rattle everything that's not bolted down. Brutal scene!

Movie#2 Pulse (The server room scene at the end of the movie)

Results: Could not watch the whole scene at -12 dB. This scene needs a disclaimer before she opens the door.

Movie#3 Snakes on a Plane DTS (Explosive cabin decompression and pulling up the plane just before it hits the water)

Movie#4 Harry Potter Order of the Phoenix (Scene where Mrs. Umbridge discovers their hidden training location and starts blasting the wall with her magic wand)

Results: Well, this one is a ground pounder. Just look at the waterfall on this Harry Potter scene.



A couple of side by side comparison pictures with my old 8" 75Watt sub.

No theater system is complete without War of the Worlds.

Not sure what you mean by BR? It's late and I'm not great with abbreviations.

I just wanted to mention that I was able to successfully get a hold of The Haunting DTS-ES Special Edition DVD.

I demo'd it tonight and it is by far the most intense movie bass I have heard yet. It has strong 25 - 30 HZ drops and some infrasonic drops as well. I didn't think I would find an audio track better than Transformers, but this tops that. Not the greatest movie in the world, but sound track lives up the hype.

The DTS-ES soundtrack LFE effects are recorded very hot.

Gotta watch the gun fight in open range, and black hawk down. Wall shakers right there.

I'll show your president the same respect you showed mine.

The software is called Spectra Plus.

The horizontal axis is frequency and the vertical axis is amplitude.
