    You'll probably be better posting this on the Subwoofer Board, this type of thing gets discussed often !!

    Joss Stone - Mind Body Soul - Track 9 - Snakes & Ladders - mega low & loads of it. The track to test how good your sub is !!

    Sarah Mclachlan - Solace - Track 6 - Back door man - huge amounts of sub 50hz

    10,000 Maniacs - In My Tribe - Track 7 - Peace Train - I've owned this album for years, but I didn't hear the bass drum (30hz) at the beginning of the track until I bought a sub.

    Sade - absolutely anything - in my humble opinion, her music can't be heard properly without a sub.

    yeah...definitely Chem Bros Surrender...some huge and deep stuff in that.

    Another fave of mine is Leftfield/Rhythm and Stealth...track 5 El Cid....the bass pans from about (guessing) 250Hz to about 15Hz and it's a real tough one to get the x-over working just right on it so that it is seemless. Top album from start to finish also.

    There's absolutely loads around and it's all been mentioned before. If you really want a bass-hit listen to Hurt by Nine Inch Nails - especially the SACD version. :)
