I'm in the process of learning about building speakers myself, and noticed that there isn't a single speaker driver that is marketed to have frequency response ranges that drop to as low as 20Hz. I think the lowest that I've seen is in the ballpark of 30Hz.
Sony markets their devices to have frequency response ranges to go as low as 20Hz.
I own two products of theirs, both having frequency response ranges from 20Hz, to 20kHz. I play a 20Hz tone, and sure enough, I can hear something.
But on my MacBook Pro, I don't hear anything. So, I guess Sony is doing something right. Or perhaps it's all marketing.
If I understand it correctly, as frequencies drop below a certain point, it's not like the volume cuts off abruptly. Instead, I believe that it's a gradual drop in volume, and we should have the opportunity to throw in an equalizer to boost the lower frequencies. But that's just a guess.
I'm new to building speakers, and I would like to learn more in the ballpark of what Sony (and others) is doing for them to confidently market their products to have such frequency ranges.
