    Thanks for the useful post.

    Production-wise it's basic stuff of course. What got me thinking was the thing about the wavelength of the sub bass though. "For a start, it's longer than the width of your head." After some quick maths I have calculated that notes up into the 6th octave or so have wavelengths longer than the width of my head (lookup table). Does anyone have the actual explanation why we can't perceive stereo below 200 Hz (a number commonly mentioned in production forums) ? :)
