    Well guys, you can give up your quests for the ultimate sub because here it is. Now, we just need to figure out how to get it inside the house.

    That would require one freaking long sub cable.

    The really hard part is finding someone to volunteer to hook it up.

    So, what frequency in Hz has a wavelength of 30,000 light years?

    According to my (admittedly very rough) calculations, using 3x10^8 m/s as the speed of light and 9.5x10^15 m as a light year, that works out to 1.05x10^-12 hz.

    Thanks, Gregg!

    Here is a more detailed explaination in "After Hours." For anyone interested.

    So do you think this will hit harder and lower than my Rockwood sub I just picked up at Costco last week?

    I bet the only movie that would take advantage of such frequencies would be the LOTR trilogy.

    I wonder if the universe had a corner, then the black hole could be corner loaded.

    What happens when the frequency gets so wide it hits the opposite end of the universe and creates a standing wave. Will we still be ok?

    Im surprised no one mentioned that the fact that space is a vaccum, and sound can't travel through a vaccum [​IMG]

    Would that be considered a dipole sub, or a monopole? I suppose if it radiates symmetrically, it is a monopole...

    If the universe is bounded, would we get room gain?
