  1. Worth listening to even if one only gets the online tone generator.

    And like your guest’s answer about the headphones and low frequency, that is also why someone may want a subwoofer for their home. Even though a speaker may reproduce those lower frequencies, it may not do so efficiently for the listening environment/room size.

    I have the same Polk sub, but I let my stereo handle the cut off frequency since it has an LFE output, though not in stereo. I figured my JBL loaded KLH bookshelf speakers are solid to about 100hz and start to drop off (confirmed by the tone generator, thanks!), so the sub handles things from there.

    Very informative for the un-innitiated, and good brush up for those who once knew, but forgot!
