Lol, it's about 45 min without traffic from downtown.

Edit: 45 min from downtown Dallas to McKinney. Yeah, it could take 2 hours to drive all the way across DFW.

The "mod" isn't meant to boost <20Hz frequencies or prevent <20Hz roll off. The purpose is to apply <20Hz filters, because the DSP doesn't natively support it. As bear mentioned, it's flat to 10Hz...
