    even if the audio wasn't a horribly compressed utube mp3, and ur speakers actualy had that kind of dynamic range, how the fuck would you be able to tell they were playing anything below about 30hz?

    What fuckin speakers do you have ?



    My KRK Rokit 6's G2's & 12" Proel Powered Sub : Test :

    Bottom was about 25Hz but you could still hear air movement coming out of the speakers until about 14Hz

    Top end seemed to drop right off at 14000Hz

    I think you can't hear anything down below 20-30hz but your speakers will still be responding. My phones were vibrating. If they say that the extreme low end is 'feel only' (chest thumping bass) then obviously big speakers must still be displacing air.

    anything under 30hz was just a vibration in my headphones, it wasn't a smooth sound but i heard it all the way down to 5 and beyond. they cut off at 18000hz at the top end.
