Yes. But irrespective of whether the LF signal is intentional (ULF SFX) or not (eg LP disc warps), it doesn't change the physics of the operation of a ported speaker.

Most sweeps are done at about 75dB, or a fraction of a watt of applied power. Now play the system a bit louder than typical and the circumstances will...

Your comprehension is poor. YOU made the claim (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophic_burden_of_proof) in post 37, so back it up.

Wrong. Below tune ALL ported speakers have no way of controlling excursion, so sending ULF to them can easily do damage. Below is a Beyma 15G40 in an enclosure tuned to 37Hz. Note the tune (minimum...

OP: Yes, all my machines (except the old Vista box) run 8 or 8.1, all with Start Is Back.

What a load of twaddle. I much prefer my trackball to a remote.

Monoblocks. Take one of the amps and associated speaker and place it in a different room. Then you'll get a difference in sound.

If it's loud enough now, then adding an external amp will gain you nothing except less money.

Using 4 channels will make no difference to using 2 channels when passive biamping. Waste of wire.

Oh. My. God. Don't you just know that all surrounds should be Quadripoles, Quintipoles or more? Find a random shape and shove a driver on each face and be prepared for surround perfection.

Most I've seen don't have a HPF for the mains, or if they do, it's something completely useless like a first order. Removing the LF content from most mains, especially small types, can considerably...

It's a made up term, and can be used to describe whatever the user wants.
If an electronic component, eg amps or DACs have a 'sonic signature', they are faulty.
