Default Zero hertz

Is there such a frequency as zero hertz?

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.

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