Impedance & Sensitivity

Yeah, well they get more focus on the "bending the truth" because they get so much attention as "high sensitivity speakers."

The sub isn't at any one frequency. The receiver sends whatever is needed to for each channel. So in context of center, the sub sees 80hz. For front left and right, 150hz.
