What's the lowest frequency on the average rock CD? An amp (not sub) with a range of 25-21,000 Hz will never experience 25 Hz bass, right? Bass usually only gets as low as 35-50 Hz?

That really deep pipe organ feeling you get in church is probably 30-40 Hz.

pipe organ music can extend to ~16hz ;)
Tool has some interesting ~20hz sound effects...

PS. the lowest note on the piano is 27.5hz.

unless you're running 3-ways, running your hgh pass that low's gonna detract from your mids

41 hz on an electric guitar. The piano and organ were mentioned above. It all depends on what type of music you are listening to and the specific recording and the source medium. Radio only goes down to the 40hz range and most recordings don't bother having anything below that freq because of it.

Ever seen MythBusteres where they played 1hz with like a million subwoofers in a wall. It was the brown sound episode

I don't remember them playing a 1hz tone....but I do remember that they started out in the single-digits.

And they never did find the mythical brown note.

I'm curious... I wonder if constipation/IBS could be treated with high SPL bass :crazy:

Very Very few Rap songs dip into the low 30s and high 20s. VERY VERY FEW. Most rap is in the High 30s-50s
