what is the difference between a Sub, A Woofer and A Low Frequency Transducer?


A sub(woofer) and a woofer are both low frequency transducers. A woofer is usually the low frequency part of a full range system. A subwoofer is a speaker that covers the part of the audio spectrum lower in frequency than the woofer.

Given your response, would you then consider a Low Frequency Transducer operating in the Frequency Range of 35HZ a Sub Woofer?


Not if the next higher section of the system was the mids. A full range system should consist of either lows, mids and highs (3 way) or lows and highs (2 way), and a sub would fill out the very low frequencies that the full range system lacks.

This question may as well be "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?". There is no definitive answer.

What is the system you are trying to find a description for?

How about: sub does the lowest two or 2.5 octaves of audible sound?

If a full range system covers the lowest 2 octaves of audible sound, that does not make it a subwoofer.

Was assuming 20 to ~80 Hz.  And yeah, I may have my octave ranges wrong and I know that when it goes that low you feel what you're hearing too.
