Zero hertz
Is there such a frequency as zero hertz?

Hartono 13th June 2007 01:08 PM


that would be equivalent of DC

In reality, no. As a theoretical construct, sure, like Hartono said, DC.

I seem to recall something about as frequency decreases it approaches DC. So a speaker could never produce a zero hertz. It would just remain still and not produce sound and possibly burn out?

DC is "deadly" for a loudspeaker, since it just heats the coil.

approx. 1003 hPa

Zero means no cone/diaphragm movement, so there is no "frequency" - "zero" and "hertz" are by definition mutually exclusive.

pretty awesome stuff,...

not sure what 1000 hpa means but anyway

D.C. puts loudspeakers under pressure?

Sorry .... bad joke ..... I hang my head in shame.

atmosferic pressure, the "DC" for all music, which is AC
