    What hz is this

    What is the hz on the song "Boom Boom Pow" by the Black Eyed Peas? The section I am talking about is around the 25-26 second mark. My sub goes flat with almost no bass. I am guessing it is lower than my sub box is tuned (I think 32hz). Just before that part, it really hits hard.

    Skimming through the decaf version of it the lowest i'm finding is 29-30hz. What part of the song is that low part? You can't really hear 25Hz, by the way.

    I said you "can't really", implying that it's not very obvious to hear. Once you start dropping down into the 20's it becomes pretty hard to actually hear some of the frequencies unless you have plenty of cone area

    Should I say, I can't hear it. All I hear is my sunroof flapping.

    Re: What hz is this

    Thanks for the fix. Frequency is the word I was looking for. The output at that part doesn't feel like much in my Tahoe. Could it be maybe my subsonic filter is too high? Not real sure how to set it. I set my gains using a DMM. Any suggestions?

    I may have some canceling at a certain frequency. It does something similar on "Echo" by Gorilla Zoe.

    Re: What hz is this

    Anyone who can't hear 25hz simply can't play it very well. 25 and up is very easy to hear if your setup can actually get that low with some authority. Below 25hz it gets alot harder and hitting much below that with enough authority to keep it audible is pretty difficult. I've got 2 15's tuned to 25hz at the moment and what you can hear and what you can feel aren't the same thing. the last note of "put on" slowed down is in the teens I think... I can't hear that note but you can feel the pressure on your ears all over and it feels kinda strange..

    Unless i'm looking at the wrong part of the song, that is 35Hz, which you should be hitting with no issues. What about "Lost" by zoe?

    Assuming we're talking about the same slowed version (90% of original), that is 25Hz (original is 28hz)

    Not sure how to tell and I'm not sure how to set the subsonic.

    I don't have "Lost" yet.
