I think a subwoofer would be needed, or a very very nice pair of earphones.

Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong: If the chassis ears were detecting said low frequency vibration, you wouldn't even know it was detecting it because earphones couldn't reproduce that sound. Voila, can't detect the hum?

Here is the first one. Hey there DS. I got my car fixed. You can go back a few threads to see the explanations. They also replaced the headliner and re-aigned the spoiler to match the rest of the theHatch backs on the lot. Thanks to your assistance I think we got everything fixed. "I apreciate you man."
