    How Low?

    Alright maybe I'm going out of my mind from working long days, but how low dose everyone's component woofers play down to? While playing some more test tones I've noticed that mine play down to 10Hz .

    I agree with Jmac. You probably aren't hearing the 10hz tone.......your probably hearing either an upper harmonic artifact of that frequency, or the mechanical noise of the speaker itself, something in your car vibrating, etc etc.

    Anyways.....with test tones and no crossover, you can get your mids to produce any frequency you want. Here is a 6.5" with a 2hz signal: http://diymobileaudio.com/pics/proto.avi

    No not saying I heard it at all. Just wondering if it is normal for them to play that low... and with the way the settings on everything is set I don't know why they are.

    Where is your highpass set, and what is the slope?

    That's my thing... I didn't tweak the comp crossovers. I've only had 2 sets of comps and on both I had someone else adjust them. I told them how I wanted it, but that don't mean anything.

    Well I checked the comp crossover and it's set to "flat". Then on the "bi-amp norm" on both the of them it's set on the two top pins.

    There are notes that can cause that kind of thing though, it's well documented, but I don't remember the link. It was the original inspiration for sound based weapon designs.
