1. ## Hertz?

What does the frequency and hertz have to do with the sound of a speaker? Is that just how low it will get when playin the beats? And gains are just the power into the speakers??

2. off the subject, but are u from Vancouver, BC or WA?

3. A speaker reproduces frequencies from an electrical signal.

yes--but since he doesn't understand frequency, he probably wont get that either......hertz is a messure of frequency (times per second). The frequecy that the current is alternating at makes the cone go in and out that many times per second (a 30hz note makes the cone go in and out 30 times per second). If you really wanted to go into it, the current altenates at that rate and goes through what is basicly a solinoid cause the coil of wire (hence the term voice coil) to be attracted and repeled from the big old magnet sitting on the back of the sub hence moving the cone....that last part may be a little over your head, but that shold clear up your understanding of frequency.

yeah i get that......hertz is a measure of frequency right? so.....what produces the hertz? partially the box and partially the sub and amp? or...??

actually no i get it.....i am studyin physics right now hehe...thanks to this i am a step ahead of most!
So the higher the frequency the higher pitched it can get? where as the lower the freuqency the lower the pitch?(pitch of sound i mean)

7. Yep, you got it. Frequency is measured in hertz. The human ear can only hear 20-20,000hz (which I'm sure you already knew).
The lower the frequency, the lower the pitch.
The higher the frequency, the higher the pitch.

Coquitlam....just outside burnaby and surrey......its kinda like the west van of the suburbs......i fu know what i mean.....Prince George?????thats like wow far away....like sayin isn't Toronto near Boston? or Edmonton near the us?

actually no...i thought it was a bit different....but in that range....so if you tune the subs to low then they could just blow?

I mentioned Prince George in case you lived closer to it(within Vancouver limits)...then it would have been respectable

But yeah, I know where Coquitlam is.

20 hz - 20khz is average. as you get older you hear less of the extremes (maybe 25 hz - 15 khz)

i dont think you would blow a sub but i certainly wouldnt try it....it could play it but you wouldnt be able to hear it.

13. you dont hear it but it can still cause damage--I am pretty sure thats the concept behind subsonic filters, dont damage your ears without knowing it. From what you have said, it sounds like your in a first year high school physics class....right? How you liking it? I think its great to understand all the stuff we do in our cars.

Oh right i knew thats what the filter was...sorta forgot..hehe yup 1st year...no fun at all..i am a chem major...not phyiscs, but i need to take the hardest 1st year physics and math courses..i dunno why..its sorta irrelavent...but hey its teachen me something
