Deep Bass

Deep bass refers to the audio bandwidth between 16-80Hz. The range of frequencies is most commonly handled by a powered subwoofer receiving an audio signal from an AV receiver or other audio source component the cutoff limit of human hearing where sound enters the "feel zone". Deep bass adds excitement, impact and fun to a listening experience and energizes a room so you can feel an explosion, musical note or other sound effect, bringing home theater to life in a visceral way. Sometimes the bass is so deep it extends below the limits of human hearing, and can only be perceived as a sense of pressure in the room.
