Thanks, amigo.:) It'll be an exciting time.
The Mrs. has been very tolerating of the volume. I don't think she's ever once asked me to turn it down. Just not turn it up.;)
I have my kids conditioned to appreciate quality LFE. When a scene comes on and you can feel the bass permeate and shake your very core, I'll look over at them and say, did you feel that? They both look at me, shake their heads yes and grin. It's awesome.:D I usually start a movie at -18db. Then, if need be, slowly work it up to maybe -16db. What level do you listen at?
My wife doesn't care if she watches something with just the tv speakers, when she asks my daughter if she wants to watch something with her my daughter asks "Where are we going to watch it?"
If the answer isn't downstairs in the basement she passes on watching anything just using the lcd in the tv room upstairs. She's starting to appreciate good sound at an early age. Hopefully this continues and she doesn't become an I-Pod listening, Netflix streaming kid like virtually all her friends will be. Hopefully your kids will follow your example and avoid the low quality convenience orientated media.
As far as listening levels I usually just set it to -15 and leave it there, sometimes we/I feel like cranking it up and I'll take it up to -10. With my current system the loudest I've watched a whole movie was -7 with the subs set 6db hot, that definitely shook my core. The movie was TF 3 and that's only happens on rare occasions now.
