The reverb just scatters sounds around the 5.1 or 7.1 speakers using a noise matrix, which are probably high frequency because they are late reflections which usually contain fairly high frequency content.
An actual physical subwoofer probably wouldnt register them because they’re not low frequency enough. It is harmless.
We’re not seeing them come though to the subwoofer though, its like there is something between the LFE output and our desk that is stopping them.
We’re using a dolby labs splitter that converts our digital stream into 6 seperate analogue outputs that goes into our mixing desk. The dolby labs unit has a output meter, and the LFE channel isn’t budging off -60.
The getWaveData function using the LFE, is however showing data at around -10db.
When I say ‘see’, I actually mean ‘see’ it on the VU meter of the LFE channel. In FMOD I’m getting -10db, on the display, I’m getting around -60db.
If we play a sound directly on the channel, without using reverb, we get the correct volume displayed on the units VU level.
