I read much about sub woofers on this list. I hope people are aware that
a bass has got some high frequencies too, so a bass can be located and
JFTR it's also possible to listen to music by headphones.
Some people like to listen to music that is drawing a room and that has
got a wide dynamic range. Relation to the speakers does matter for
stereo, so do they completely mix in mono for dance/club music? No, they
are mixing stereo, it's just stupid music made by people who aren't
musicians and the main instrument are a bass line and a kick in unison
to the bass line. If such an dance/club audio engineer isn't aware hat
there are thousands of different music styles and that some music styles
are really composed and/or improvised and not just a bass line + a
synced kick and that even for many kinds of dance music, the rhythm
group often is very subdued in the background, then such a wrong claim
still is a wrong claim.
