I see two issues:Whenever people mention these fan subs I always wonder how musical content would sound. Something about musical bass notes comming from fan blades is incredibly interesting to me.
1.Probably not.I see two issues:
Can the human ear distinguish between notes (fundamentals and harmonics) in the extreme infrasonics that this "driver" produces?
In the end, does it really matter what the transducer is since all speakers are simply mechanical interfaces between the electronic signal and our ears (they all excite the air, does it matter how?)
Indeed, a much cheaper sub can hit from 20hz and up..No disputing that. I don't see how that has anything to do with my comment, especially because I specifically stated how interested I was in hearing the rotary sub producing those bass notes, not a much cheaper sub.Not sure what "modern day" means. But there have always been some "pop"ular songs that incorporated frequencies between 20-30Hz. I think Sarah McLachlan's Brown Man (something like that) has it. I think some of Leftfield's songs do.
But so what? A much cheaper subwoofer can deliver 20Hz and up reliably and definitely with enough SPL for music. My SVS subs for a 10th of the price of this sub can deliver 10Hz.
It's the rest of the music and movies that is why I need to build a sub that hits 5Hz....
I too would love to build a sub that hits 5hz...with enough authority to feel it. Im pretty sure both of my sealed subs are hitting this low, but with nowhere near enough output to make it even worth mentioning.It's the rest of the music and movies that is why I need to build a sub that hits 5Hz....
