What scene to test dialogue? Particularly sub.


Active Member

I'm going to moving the Sub around the room and was after something good to test dialogue.

Speakers are old Kef Eggs, so for deep voices I imagine the sub is helping them out.

I wants the sound to appear to be coming from the front (i.e. the TV).

Any suggestions of scenes from popular folms/TV to test out dialogue as I move the sub around?

I'll be testing deeper frequencies and effects with Stark Trek 2009 and Bad Boys II

I remember a reviewer mentioning Whiplash (2014) to test dialogue. Not seen the film so cant drill down to ideal scenes


Try Candyman, the guy in that has a supremely deep voice, when he's talking to her in the car park is a scene I specifically remember.

It is intense. A demonstration of an obsessive near psychopath, and opposite him, an obsessive youngster desperate to succeed. It's a well executed film and well acted. Good sound as well, particularly if you like jazz.
