It's called a notch filter, it attenuates frequencies that are "shrill" to the ear.

Common examples are those frequencies emitted by pissed off women.

Good one. Thanks.
I rather like a very old cartoon I saw in an American audio magazine where an ever so slightly embarrassed man is showing his wife a new, large set of speakers and explaining to her that he got them "as part exchange for the kids".
Cheers, Jonathan

Could someone please explain to me why I am being told that my speakers are too big but my sofa is too small, when the sofa is clearly much larger than both speakers put together?

I think wives consider the physical size of speakers to include not only the speaker itself but also all of the associated territory that is off-limits to other furnishings in order to enhance sound and maximize the sweet spot. On that basis my OB Linkwitz Orions indeed constrain more square footage than a sofa!
