    My previous favourite for testing the REALLY deepest of bass used to be Nelly Furtado - Childhood Dreams (seriously, check it out) but I just managed to find something even better in my Final Fantasy music collection.

    It's from FFX (PS2 game) and has some strong bass below 40hz including some very strong 10hz signals!

    See the attachment for a spectral analysis!

    Anyone else know of anything really good for shaking a room to pieces?

    I've just got The Complex Rock Tour Live by the Blue Man Group which was being used as a demo disc by PMC at the Bristol Show.

    As befitting an outfit that has four drummers to go with the three guitar players the music is loud and low. It probably doesn't have the outright depth of some music but it will certainly sort the men from the boys in terms of bass speed as the lesser drivers will be left miles behind.

    Massive Attack albums usually have a pretty hefty bass

    This is going to sound very surprising, but try Firth of Fifth by Genesis, from the Selling England by the Pound album, as the instrumental section on that gets VERY low.

    When purchasing new "bits" for my system i usually test them as to how they sound playin LEFTFIELD's LEFTISM album. its brilliant at showing how speakers and amplifiers respond to different frequencies, both individually and all at the same time, the first few tracks are defining in my opinion in telling how good a system is. its not just good for testing its a superb album- if y ouve not listened to it already id recomend it to anyone- is a "grower" tho so give it 4 or 5 plays.
    if not that then agree with massive attack. mezzanine always good, angel (track one) is always good at listening to see how far soemthing will go before it reaches cutoff. exchange for listenin to the treble aswel.
    cheers

    'Walk this land' by 'E Z Rollers' from the Lock Stock soundtrack, lots of lovely deep bass.
