Removed nonsense[edit]

The first paragraph of this article is nonsense created by a known wikivandal, so I removed it. (It was a slightly clever spoof of corporate management speak, but certainly not encyclopedic.) I applaud the contributors for actually adding meaningful content to this page, seeing as how it started as a vandal's dig at the Wikicommunity. Ddama 04:13, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Added as link at subwoofer[edit]

This article has become somewhat visible because of this link. I have no idea what Ddama removed some years ago, but what has been left (largely unchanging) is one person's opinion about bass crossovering in surround sound (including LFE) systems. it is a sufficiently complex field (with multiple suppliers of hardware and software and multiple suppliers of varying competence of source material), that a single paragraph is ipso facto not adequate coverage, whatever your particular approach to such matters. Without references to external sources, whether one imagines the claims made here are adequate or accurate, it's headed right into deletion territory.

Those interested in the subject should make an effort, now that the article has become somewhat prominent to clean it up, lest someone add it to the deletion pile. ww (talk) 07:34, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

I strongly disagree with this. Since User:Ddama removed the initial nonsense, the stub has contained uncontroversial, accurate, and useful information. The only controversial claims contained in the cited note are about how to mix using the LFE, and these claims are not contained in this stub. I agree the topic is worthy of more than a single paragraph, but that is not a valid reason for deletion. I am confident that if this stub was ever cited for deletion, the consensus would be keep.

Merging of LFE crossover[edit]

I did not propose the merging of LFE crossover into Bass management (proposed on July 10, 2010), but I support it. They are different names for the same thing, so having separate articles does not make sense. HairyWombat 21:09, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Later. Done, although the only bit worth merging was Category:Film sound production. HairyWombat 20:00, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Weak Article On Complex Topic[edit]

This is a weak and confusing article. It lacks most content, and the table is downright mystifying--why would the LFE signal be "merged" with the sub after base management? It still exists, and is still directed over the .1 connection. It might make more sense to say that the L+R low frequency is "gone" (having been merged with LFE). Definitely not up to wikipedia standards. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:18, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
