Feel, not hear.
Quote from: peppercorn on 09/12/2010 23:10:57Feel, not hear.I was just thinking of what I can use as an example.
With a sufficiently large input, the excursion will cause damage to the voice coil or other moving part of the driver.
As RD points out, don't run the sine wave test continously.

There may be a rumble filter circuit in the speaker cabinet to attenuate subsonic frequencies and prevent this sort of damage, but best not to assume.
The range in hearing is quite large. There are some orchestral instruments that produce notes below 30 hz and people that hear this as a note. What is normal for hearing is what is, but somebody that could hear above 30K hz and below 30 hz would certainly be unusual.
