    Hey all, Im trying to make a cd that is full of songs with deep ass bass. My friends want to see my system perform to its fullest. I am running 2 12" Shivas in a custom made slot-ported to 35hz box powered by a Hifonics BX1500D and run by an Eclipse 5444 HU.
    So far, I have:
    Lil John- pretty much any song
    Kilo Ali- Love in Your Mouth

    and please no Woofer excursion tests or Drum & Bass songs, strictly actual songs.
    Thanks

    haha, I was going to say that song too. That was like one of the first songs I played when I first got my sub that made me fall in love with bass, just because of that last line. "im gonna show you something, homie just press that button, the trunk went eh-eh, and all of a sudden, four 15's, didn't see no wires, and then I heard boom from the amplifiers" hahaha.

    I believe you are thinking of X Gonna Give it to Ya. Party Up In Here by DMX also has a fair amount of bass.

    I had a JL woofer in a shitty premade box running off a punch 45HD amp and i would always turn it up at that part. :)

    :ugh: at all the crap mentioned so far. I'd almost bet the farm that almost everything posted so far doesn't go very deep at all, maybe 40-50hz if you're lucky. Try some damn organ music if you want deep bass. The lowest register on a big organ is 16hz.

    Aren't we the elitist. Think about it, most of the stuff listed above is synthesized, there is no reason it wouldn't go lower than 40-50Hz. You could stand to be a little bit more constructive.

    If you want the ultimate in low frequency bass, just hook a frequency generator up to your aux input and have at it...all the bass you could ever want! If you get a good one you can program it to do frequency slides from say 5hz up to 30khz and listen for standing waves/resonances in the accoustic environment in your car. If your setup's good, you shouldn't hear much at all...just a flat response all the way through the spectrum. Also, its a handy way to test for and eliminate those annoying rattles.

    Ok that's nerdish and probably won't get you laid, but it works..

    for some test tones......try out bass mekanik. Just make sure to be using the subsonic filter on the amplifier

    You could try "Ginuwine - Pony" ;) If you can stand the song it has good bass.

    Elitist? He wanted stuff with low frequencies so I told him organ music. It's not my fault if you're too ignorant to understand how deep organs can go on the lowest register.

    Think about it, just because some of it is synthesized doesn't mean hardly any of it goes all that deep. I've sat and watched numerous songs on a spectrum analyzer that people on OT have recommended in threads like these over the past 4 years and virtually none of it went much lower than 40 or 50hz. Sure, there's the occasional song that goes down a little lower for a very short duration, but it's pretty rare. Most of that crap (especially (c)Rap music) is eq'd to hell and has a large bump between 50 - 100hz to give it that thump that too many people think sounds 'good'. :ugh: With an organ you're talking about very low frequencies that can go on for several seconds at a time.

    I've never given any of the speakers I've owned a bigger workout than when playing organ or classical music at high volumes. I had one pair of speakers that were rated at -3db at 16 hz (and there's no doubt they'd do it either) and the only thing that came close to an organ recording was a demo cd that had high quality recordings of the Space Shuttle launches that contained info clear down to 5hz. No rock, pop, (c)rap or other music I've listened to has gone down nearly as deep as the 16hz organ pedal, and certainly nothing like the Space Shuttle recordings.

    If anybody wants a cd with killer low frequency stuff then check out the Time Warp cd on the Telarc label or alomst any of the cd's by Dead Can Dance. The best Dead Can Dance cd's are Spleen and Ideal, Within The Realm of a Dying Sun, The Serpent's Egg, Aion, Into The Labyrinth, and Spiritchaser.

    Think before you speak, I'm certainly not ignorant that large organs can play into the very low register, after all I have been playing music for 10 years. You played recordings of the space shuttle down to 5Hz? That's interesting, what subwoofer do you own that can go that low? I don't know of any. Most boxes in cars are not tuned for 16Hz or something that low anyways, they are usually tuned for rap and hip hop standard frequencies, so that is why it would be best to show off a system with music utilizing those frequencies.

    How about if you think before you speak? And how about some reading comprehension classes too? If you'll pull your head out of your ass you'll see that I said:
    I never said my speakers went down that deep, I said the cd contained information that went that low. I do know for a fact that my speakers were trying to reproduce it because I could see the woofers moving at approx. that rate. I have never owned a suboofer in my home system because I've never needed one. Like I posted above, one pair of speakers I owned was down only 3db at 16hz and down 3db at 35,000hz.

    And as far as a car is concerned, it's certainly not dificult to get killer low-end response with a pair of 12's and a sealed enclosure. I know for a fact that the 16hz organ pedals are no problem in my car. 2 12's in a sealed enclosure combined with cabin gain make it pretty much effortless.
    Whose fault is that? It's still not that low and if people want their systems to sound like hammered shit then I guess that's their right. I sure as hell wouldn't build a system like that and I wouldn't be playing (c)rap music anyway. I want something that sounds great, basically an in-car version of my home system, and that's what I've pretty much got. Any idiot can throw together a shit box and make a ton of noise, that ain't music though.

    At least you only further confirm the type of personality I predicted of you. I like the the line "I wouldn't be playing (c)rap music anyway". I'm sorry, but if you are going to generalize an entire genre as crap than I can't respect anything you have to say about music. You did imply that your speakers reproduced those sounds with this: "No rock, pop, (c)rap or other music I've listened to has gone down nearly as deep as the 16hz organ pedal, and certainly nothing like the Space Shuttle recordings". I just noticed you used that stupid "(c)rap" joke again. Yea, I'm sure the cones moved, doesn't mean they were producing anything audible. I don't think the average person is even capable of hearing 5Hz, so it is kind of a moot point. I can't believe you would actually tell me to pull my head out of my ass when you are the one who obviously believes he has a superior taste in music ((c)rap?). Wow. Get the fuck out of this thread, the second you posted you brought it downhill.
