    It's not just us and Barry White, folks. Bass is sexy!

    "Elephants are the Barry Whites of the animal kingdom, research has shown. They produce their own version of the legendary soul singer's seductive bass tones – only much, much deeper. An elephant's infrasound rumble, often too low for the human ear to hear, is used to keep herds together, and by males to find mates. It allows the animals to communicate over distances of up to six miles."

    Years ago the Intersonics company (manufacturer of ServoDrive subwoofers) proudly noted how their products were being employed by researchers in elephant communication:

    "In Africa, for example, ServoDrive loudspeakers were used by a Cornell University (1986-87) team studying the communication between herds of wild elephants. The research team required a subwoofer that could be powered by a 300W amplifier, was compact and lightweight enough to be loaded into their Isuzu Troopers by a pair of women, yet could still provide 114dB@16Hz."
