I'm new to the audio/home theater world and looking to buy a starter home theater setup. However, while looking at possible AV receivers, I noticed that many only had a frequency range of 20Hz-20,000kHz. I was wondering if the receiver would cut off the infrasonic frequencies that a subwoofer (say an SVS PB-1000) with a range down to 17Hz could produce. I'm unsure how the sound is processed considering it comes through the receiver to the subwoofer which has its own amplifier. Or perhaps I would need a receiver with a range down to 10 Hz? Thanks!

AFAIK:
  • 20Hz-20KHz applies to the speaker channels.
  • The LFE channel - where the really deep bass and low-frequency effects reside - is spec'd 0-120Hz.
Since your sub is going to play all of the content in the LFE channel + all of the content below the crossover settings in the speaker channels, you should be OK with any standard A/V receiver (AVR).
