I've been going to uTube and playing stuff off searches like "deep base test" and "deep base music" to test out my Subs ... That got me thinking ...

I should ask YOU ,..

Tell us how deep your subs can go ... and what do you play to show them off?
(I'm looking for real music but test tracks are also ok)

Thanks Mojo ... I'll check them out ...

When listening to stuff I'm surprised by what people present as hearable low tones ... my hearing cuts out around 28 Hz (I can hear a bit below that If I crank it ... but I can't listen to music that loud). Some you tube vids present a 15hz tone ... and I'm like "I can hear that" but I'm pretty sure the tone is not a sine wave and I'm hearing the harmonics ,,,

Some info ... a 4 string double bass goes down to almost 41HZ ... and a 5 Sting to about 31 HZ. Off hand the only non-electronic instrument I can think of that goes lower is a pipe organ (some to 16Hz)

The drums you love so much are way above that ...

You wanted "musical bass" and those tunes above are very musical. How musical depends on how well you've tuned your system. I hear transparent growls, textures and nuances that permeate the interstitial spaces of my quarks.

Yup, the fundamental is above infrasound but some instruments have subharmonics in the infrasound range.

Yup, you're not hearing 15Hz but rather resonances.

Yes, I'm looking for music ... I was just describing what I knew about that range ...

Trevor, Rich asked for music...LOL!

Those last two are making the mid-woofer on the M2OW work really hard. I get 180 degree envelopment BTW.

Doesnt get much harder. laugh

If you want bass check out Brian Bromberg.

If you want BASS check out electronic or synth bass.

The fundamentals for drums and bass guitar are above his target frequency range.
