20 Hz and below - impossible to detect, remove as it only adds unnecessary energy to the total sound, thereby most probably holding down the overall volume of the track

i dunno, when i do PAs, if i boost my kicks or bass at 20Hz it defo makes the room shake. I guess my eq might not be that accurate though and it could be that im boostin the freqs just above 20hz (psp masterQ)

IMO this was a very useful thread, concise, epic and otherwise, thanks. with respect to the amount to boost, it's helpful to me to remember all frequencies are not perceived alike:

Thank you very much. Eq is one of my weak points right now. I'm not always sure about what to mess with. So thank you guys. Great post!
