I wonder if the datsik has actually heard the 5hz content on the track he made...

I believe 5hz is subsonic, so why not try a tactile transducer? Not the same, but probably better than the alternatives given the time/money/Dr.Suess-esque subwoofer requirements?

For this kind of money you can hire me to come in and give you a ~1Hz "response" I'd really be interested to know when you think you've got your monies worth. Of course you'll have your choice of cricket or ball bats. Hell this sounds like so much fun I might even give you a discount for followup visits.

Hi Pinkmouse, I think you might have forgotten we are talking <16Hz here. Otherwise read "tent" instead of "car" and "flex" if you prefer

He probably put it in by mistake. I don't think any song has intentional 5Hz on it since it almost invariably gets removed by one filter or another.

Anyway, seems as though this thread was started for purely academic purposes.

Just played the song and yes 5Hz is in there during the ray gun wobble bit.

I still think rotary is the way to go for an install, for a club very large horns and lots of them.

I still think doing this in a large room is a bad idea, for many reasons. Do you understand decay times at 5Hz? you're gonna make mud.

Now I'm curious: was the <20hz musical, did it add to the song in a meaningful way?

125 dB @ 5 Hz is a most innovative way to scramble eggs without breaking shells.

I listened to this song on a pair of wharfedale valdus 500's, for those of you who dont know thing hifi/pa hybrid with 3x 8 inch woofers per speaker tuned quite high (no output at 30hz). Quite cheap speakers, good value for money second hand. Go quite loud and produce lots of midbass.

When standing right next to them they will produce output to 5 hz (like 3 cm's from the cones) before the out of phase output from the port has a chance to reduce the output. Excursion was about 16 mm peak to peak without pushing them. This meant there were 3 8 inch woofers right next to me doing 8mm xmax at 3 cm distance.

For me it added to the mix. you can test it yourself, just stand right next to the woofer cones.

No, it just rattled doors, which was annoying/distracting. The physical effect was like someone grabbing you by the shoulders and shaking you while pushing air into and out of your lungs 5 times a second. It was unpleasant at 110db in room.

p.s. I like dub-step but this was too low.

This is why I want to produce it at 125 db so it goes right through you.

How loud can you produce 5 hz?
