And I read that most movie theaters only go down to 25 Hz (not sure if this is true).
But we have the infrasonic proponents in this thread and we have a thread going on the importance of sub-20 Hz, and there are the buttkicker type products which go down as low as 5 Hz as well. It seems that the folks who have infrasonic capability really appreciate it, and Hsu (and others) are helping to enable it.
Do any Hsu owners run their subs in low frequency extension mode for home theater? I had assumed they would until I read Dr Hsu's interview above (it's from 2001, though).
Does anyone have Attack of the Clones on DVD? There's a scene where Obi Wan is chasing Boba Fett through an asteroid field and Boba Fett drops 'concussion bombs' When I watch it, the bombs go off and there is about a couple of seconds where you see the explosion start, but there is silence initially on my current system (rated 28 Hz). I thought they were just doing a 'see it before you hear it' effect, but now I'm wondering if there's anything there (theelviscerator's comment about silence got me wondering).
