I am thinking about putting together a video full of the best sub moments clips.

I have the a list of films I found on the SVS website, so I will start by compiling them.

* "3D Atom Bomb" Big booms, atomic style. Prepare yourself, and your sub.
1. "15 Megatons", Chap. 4 (0:50:01)

* "Aliens" Not just another modern sci-fi horror classic, this one rocks from intro to final scene.
1. "THX Intro" *

4. "Marines we are leaving!", Scene 15 (1:19:45)*
5. "Drop ship explodes", Scene 17 (1:24:49)*

* "Alien v. Predator" The end of a franchise, or rather, two. Lots of great bass, just don't plan to get cozy with the protagonists, or even figure out who they are.
1. "Laser Beam Mining", Scene 5 (00:13:40) *
2. "Lift Off", Scene 27 (01:27:35) *

1. "Betty Flies In", Scene 5 (13:09)

* "Antz" Another good family movie, though not perhaps for small children. Extremely loud bass above 30 Hz.
1. "Terror from Above", Scene 17 (51:48)

1. "Lift off", Scene 13 (35:12)*
2. "Re-entry", Scene 53 (2:05:20)*

1. "Knocking on the Door", Scene 12 (1:39:30)

1. "Destruction of Rome", Scene 9 (0:49:26)*
2. "Golden Gate Bridge Breaks", Scene 14 (1:30.56)*

1. "Let the tuning commence", Scene 8 (34:30)

3. "Hitting bottom", Scene 17 (53:15, Side "B")

2. "Tidal wave", Scene 14 (0:49:05)*
3. "Tanker on the boulevard", Scene 16 (01:02:55)*

2. "Explosion", Scene 18 (01:35:50)*

* "Detroit Rock City" More proof that stunning digital bass tracks can show up where you least expect them.
1. "Oh Chungo...." Scene 12 (53:50)

* "Fahrenheit 9-11" Politically incorrect, and unabashedly biased documentary about the "war on terrorism". Surprising bass passages.
1. "Fireworks", Scene 1 (0:00:30)*
2. "Credits", Scene 4 (0:13:46)*
3. "Bombing begins", Scene 16 (01:09:30)*

1. "Logs hit highway", Scene 2 (0:10:09)*

1. "Darla taps the tank", Scene 25 (1:18:14)*

* "Godzilla" That's right, the big lizard flick does more than just tear up NYC, it brings you some very good deep bass. Even the menu for this one is something of a bass reference!
1. Menu, building crumbling*
2. "Godzilla enters harbor" Chapter 8 (0:25:23)*
3. "Godzilla emerges from subway" Chapter 15 (1:20:30)*

1. Menu (Intro)
2. "Coming mother!" Scene 10 (38:08)

1. "Gun blasts in car" Chapter 32 (1:48:20)*

* "The Hulk" BTE (Better Than Expected) remake of the old comic book and TV show. Some dynamic bass, and plenty of mayhem ... all combined with a love story!
1. "Hulk jumps on a plane", Scene 25 (1:47:43)*
2. "Hulk pounds the pavement", Scene 26 (1:51:16)*

* "Ice Age" BTE (Better Than Expected) animation flick which, like The Iron Giant below, is remarkable perhaps because it's not from Disney!
1. "Squirrel races from a glacier", Scene 1 (0:02:33)*

* "The Incredibles" Typical Pixar Studios animation perfection. Adults, kids, anyone can watch this DVD and have a great time. Some well done, heart-stopping bass. Recording levels uneven during previews and movie intro. Sound is right on feature however.
1. "Building comes down", Scene 6 (0:22:59)*
2. "Syndrome", Scene 13 (0:52:01)*
3. "Ouch", Scene 15 (0:58:15)*
4. "Sticky balled", Scene 16 (01:02:30)*

2. "Time's Up" Scene 24 (0:51:55)
3. "Got Airbags?" Scene 31 (1:05:15)

* "The Iron Giant" Great family animation with SERIOUS bass, including very strong peaks below 25 Hz. Jump to:
1. "The Giant Sits Down" Scene 8 (0:20:01)
2. "Robot Landing" (Train Impact) Scene 10 (25:41)
3. "Green Boom" Scene 27 (1:11:40)

* "Jumanji" A fresh thrill-a-minute movie you can watch with the family (though not the toddlers!). One of the first state of the art DVD's with bass that still embarrasses some newer fare.
1. "Big Cat" Scene 9 (0:29:01)
2. "Stampede" Scene 14 (0:59:16)

* "Jurassic Park III" After the the second "JP" expectations were low for the third in the series. Better than the second, by far, but still short of the original. Splendid bass however.
1. "T-Rex Lunch", Scene 6 (0:26:30)*
2. "Dueling dinosaurs", Scene 6 (0:26:49)*

* "K19" If you needed another reason not to join the defunct USSR Navy, here you go! Ensure all audience members can handle the intense action plus graphical depictions of radiation burns.
1. "In case I die", Scene 4 (0:36:11)*

* "Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Rings" Those not familiar with the story will have to pay attention very closely... or don't bother ...and just bask in state of the art sound and some of the deepest bass yet put on DVD.
1. "Ring drops", Scene 1 (0:03:49)*
2. "Sauron Explodes", Scene 1 (0:04:04)*
3. "Skeleton falls into well", Scene 8 (0:27:39)*

* "Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" A rare thing, a sequel that's done at least as well as its predecessor. With stunning siege and battle scenes, and naturally, bass worthy of the SVS "Bassy Scenes" Hall of Fame.
1. "Gandalf falls", Scene 1 (0:02:48)*
2. "Black riders", Scene 14 (0:49:42)*
3. "Gandalf slays Balrog", Scene 15 (0:53:54)*
4. "Oliphants charge", Scene 30 (1:44:52)*

* "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" The epic finale of the famed Lord of the Rings trilogy. If your sub can handle this DVD it really is "precious".
1. "Green light" Chapter 11 (0:41:40)*
2. "Undead King" Chapter 27 (01:27:22)*
3. "Shelob" Chapter 33 (01:51:40)*
4. "Olephant charge, again" Chapter 42 (2:12:48)*
5. "Mount Doom" Chapter 53 (2:40:50)*

* "Lost In Space" Yes, an oft times cheesy feature film remake... of the oft times cheesy "classic" TV Sci-Fi show. Forget the CGI "monkey" and watch for this bass!:
1. Menu (Intro)
2. "Fighter Launch" Scene 1 (0:1:10)*
3. "Showtime" Scene 1 (0:02:25)*
4. "Exiting Hyperspace" Scene 11 (0:36:15)*

* "Mask of Zorro" The last of the opening music is decaying in mid chart. The the opening logo then turns to fire...and the bottom of the chart shows a great 25hz signal as the fire burns:
1. Opening Logo Scene 1 (0:0:50)
2. "Explosion" Scene 27 (2:04:53

* "The Matrix" Modern, violent, science fiction thriller with plenty of shoot-'em-up bass blasts. Here's some subtle and not so subtle.
1. "Where we are grown" Scene 12 (0:42:55)
2. "Landing in fight", Scene 15 (50:51)
3. "Chopper explosion" Scene 31 (1:51:11)

* "The Matrix Reloaded" Baffling yet still intriguing story of future.. real, cyber, and quasi-religious sci-fi all mixed up. Any surprise there's some intense bass in there?
1. "Door to the source", Scene 26 (1:38:23)*
2. "It's the hammer", Scene 34 (2:05:15)*

* "Minority Report" Tom Cruise carries this future sci-fi thriller and uses loads of believable technology to do it. Worth the rental even if only for the stellar "factory scene".
1. "Pulse gun in the factory", Scene 9 (0:52:29)*

* "Monsters Inc." Masterful PIXAR animation. Great story for kids or adults and one of the new reference DVD's on audio too.
1. "Ted walks to work", Scene 5 (0:09:01)*
2. "Sock detonation", Scene 12 (0:18:33)*
3. "City block decon", Scene 12 (0:28:23)*
4. "Boo laughs", Scene 13 (0:30:39)*

* "Predator" The Arnold thriller with an unbeatable plot twist (and the Governor of Minnesota like you've never seen him).
1. "Jesse's Gun", Scene 12 (47:43)

* "Resident Evil" Something of a cult classic, end of the world, seriously bad germ flick. If you didn't get enough of Milla Jovovich from The Fifth Element, well, here you go.
1. "T-bone car wreck", Scene 1 (00:05:21) *
2. "Rocket Launcher", Scene 10 (00:38:05) *
3. "Five Kilotons", Scene 24 (01:17:37) *

* "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" The epic finale of the famed Lord of the Rings trilogy. If your sub can handle this DVD it really is "precious"
1. "Green light" Chapter 11 (0:41:40)*
2. "Undead King" Chapter 27 (01:27:22)*
3. "Shelob" Chapter 33 (01:51:40)*
4. "Olephant charge" Chapter 42 (2:12:48)*
5. "Mount Doom" Chapter 53 (2:40:50)*



* "Ronin" Still more plot twists, and some of the wildest car chases put on film. You can see the the graph "anvil" in the 30-45hz range about halfway down the chart. This indicates the signal was so loud at that moment that it went off the scale. Maybe not the lowest bass around, but this has some of the loudest 30-50hz bass on any DVD.

1. "RPG Launch", Scene 13 (44:31)



* "Soldier" OK, so it's not on the AFI "Top 100", but it'll make your subwoofer stand up and salute!

1. "Dumping The Trash", Chap 6, (0:19:25)
2. "Windstorm" Chap 6 (0:19:25)
3. "Planet Killer" Chap 28 / 1:29:54

* "Spy Game" And easily overlooked thriller with action set in China. Some great work by Robert Redford and Brad Pitt. That there would be some demanding audio might be expected.
1. "Chopper crash", Scene 4 (0:25:54)*
2. "Explosion", Scene 17 (1:33.33)*

* "Stargate" A great Sci-Fi DVD, with Kurt Russel as you've seen him many times. Bad to the bone.
1. "Space Traveling", Scene 11 (30:10)

* "Super Speedway" Hanging out with Mario. Bass at the track you can FEEL.
1. "Bump At Speed", Scene 10 (0:16:56)
2. "F1 Closeup", Scene 7 (0:12:45)
3. "Title: Burnin", Title

* "Thirteenth Warrior" Didn't get enough "Antonio"? In the first scene, the top section is the opening...as camera rolls in synch with lighting. You can see most of the bass slopes off....and then the thunder clap hits hard about 8 seconds later (the bottom surge)---the thunder has monster signal at 30hz:
1. "Opening Storm" Scene 1 (0:0:30)
2. "Ambushed" Scene 7 (0:38:27)

* "Terminator 2" Arnold couldn't be a bad buy two times in a row! He did bring some bad bass with him to this killer sequel however.
1. "DVD Intro"
2. "First Footstep" Chap 2 (0:01:40)

* "Titan AE" Fantastic science fiction animation with unreal bass, don't rent this one, buy it!
1. "Ship flyby" Chap 10 (0:36:10)*
2. "Ship engine roar" Chap 10 (0:36:44)*
3. "Drej" Chap 10 (39:50)
4. "Ice Field Part 1" Chap 16 (103:45)*
5. "Ice Field Part 2" Chap 16 (1:04:55)

* "Titanic" You love it...or you hate it. Regardless of which side of the ship you sit, this flick does some serious rumbling for you:
1. "THX Intro"
2. "We can't leave him" Scene 22 (2:21:50)

* "Toy Story 2" A modern animation classic, and one of the few sequels ever to rival the original movie. More deep bass than we've seen in a while. Serious stuff well below 20Hz! "Monsters Inc." also has a "trailer" prior to Toy Story's start, don't miss it!:
1. "Door knock" (Monsters Inc. trailer)*
2. "Dog growling" (Monsters Inc. trailer)*
3. Opening logo Chap. 1 (0:00:55)*
4. "Aliens explode" Chap. 2 (0:02:30)*
5. "Game over" Chap. 2 (0:04:21)*

* "The Phantom Menace" OK, maybe you hate "Jar Jar Binks" too, but this disk is the KING of killer bass. If you thought you might only want one SVS, you might reconsider after spinning this one. Bass so big it got its own web page! TPM --- Advanced Bass Analysis. Lesser subs don't even try to reproduce most of the bass in this movie. Some highlights:
1. "THX Intro" *
2. "Ambush" Chapter 3 (0:05:12)*
3. "Pod race tunnel exit" Chapter 20 (1:01:40)*

* "U-571" Hollywood's answer to "Das Boot". More underwater explosions that any normal sub(woofer) should be allowed to reproduce.
1. Alarm! Chap. 8 0:40:15
2. "Torpedo hit" Chap 9 (0:47:48)*
3. "They all missed" Chap 9 (0:55:55)*
4. "Plane flyover" Chap 12 (1:06:28)*
5. "Depth Charge" Chap 15 (1:17:34)*

* "Unbreakable" Another Bruce Willis, "what-the-heck-is-going-on-in-THIS-movie?" Sixth Sense-like thriller. Mixed in is the sort of truly disturbing bass that almost by itself creates foreboding tension you have to experience to understand.
1. "Train ride" Chap 1 (0:08:35)*
2. "Walk in the rain" Chap 23 (1:22:55)*

* "Waterworld" A modern curiosity. One of a handful of action DVDs without a dedicated LFE track. A feature sadly missing on this shoot'em up, Kevin Costner flick:
1. "Later cousins" Scene 4 (38:23)
2. "Flare dropped" Scene 12 (1:51:30)
3. "Ship sinking" Scene 13 (1:56:45)

Would it be infringing copyright if I was to share it with the forum?
