    I don't believe it was a silent room. They were listening to a piano concert.



    In light of this research we may need subwoofers that go down to about 5 Hz to get the haunted house effects.

    That's possible Mark. I hope the researchers factor in reactions to bad concerts when they repeat the experiment.

    At least it wasn't a Gwar concert. [​IMG]

    I hope SVS uses this research for their next line of subwoofers...

    I think you’re onto something Max.

    The home theater of the future may have better than 1080P resolution, jacked up to about a 70Hz-refresh rate to make the image appear almost real. If they add infrasound techniques they may have warning labels on DVDs measured in body count.

    Exorcist IV: The Bitch is Back
    Warning: Contains Infrasound Effects
    Rated D3 (Over 3 million viewers killed)

    P.S. There’s a rumor that infrasound subsonic effects below 5Hz can be achieved with an accordion. [​IMG]

    Heh, I bet somebody already applied for the patent using infrasound to freak people out in a movie setting.

    Kevin, maybe you can do a search in the Home Theater Software section? I recall seeing frequency curves for the Haunting during one of those DTS vs. DD wars.

    How much power does it take to generate 5 Hz sound? And, is it true that your bowels loosen when you hit a particular low frequency? Boy, that would mess up infrasound speaker sales, I tell ya (er, except as a drug-free alternative to Ex-Lax). [​IMG]
