    It says on wikipedia LFE content can be from 3-120Hz, if say your subwoofer can go down to like 27Hz, is the bass below in a movie then missing or does it play the bass in 27Hz instead when scene from a movie is lower then 27Hz?

    The lfe information will still be sent to your sub but just means your sub wont be able to reproduce it

    No film mixer would put something at 3hz on purpose anyway, most people are mainly concerned with reference range output down to 20hz

    They're out there. You'll generally be talking multiples of the best commercial stuff or monster DIY builds though. And extension to 3hz doesn't tell us much. We'd need to see the output levels there as well.

    This would be fun to experience I bet

    I have seen a lot of debate on the intentions regarding the <10hz content. Hard to say for sure either way I guess. I do agree though, if you can get enough headroom for the system down to say 15hz or so...you'll going to have a very enjoyable experience..:)
