    SRS Labs Subwoofer
    SRS Labs uses a propietary technology with this sub, called "TruBass". What it does is to trick our ears in to think we are hearing deep bass using only some carefully selected harmonics. The result, in my view, is almost the same as when a little sub can impress people by harmonic distorted frequencies in the 40Hz zone when playing a 20Hz tones.
    What do you think?

    Will it trick the couch into rumbling also? Will it also trick the walls into vibrating? [​IMG]

    I've read a full page article on this in one of my car audio magazines. It tricks the ear with 1st,2nd and 3rd order harmonic distortion. It uses specific amounts of each and when applied to factory OEM speakers, like in a car, it gives the listener a deeper sound.

    I think it may be good for low budget speakers but in higher priced subs and speakers they try to keep harmonic distortion at a minimium. I really think there is no substitute for real bass.
