    Take for example my current SVS that has the 16,20,25 HZ tuning. I usally run it a 20hz with one port blocked. Then looking at alot of other subs that claim a range in the 23-? range. How much home theater listening is below that 23hz range? More below that range is music vs. HT? Is there a number that the sound is no longer hearable, but you only feel?
    Thanks

    The audibility thresholds of the deepest frequencies are level dependent. You can hear a 15 Hz sine wave if the SPL is high enough. And once you are into the audible threshold, the human ear is still quite sensitive to relative changes in SPL, even at the deepest frequencies.

    Usually around 20hz is generally regarded as the cutoff for human hearing.

    Big difference between [email protected] and [email protected] They claim 23 but at what db? Doesnt do any good if its not loud enough to hear it.
