    Subsonic Filter
    Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.

    id run one depending on the music you listen too, the sub can bottom out of you play too far under tuning....

    About the time they'll realize that very fews songs have any content below about 30hz and most of the time a subsonic filter isn't needed.
