    I agree with your statement that you are not clear in what you are asking. How do you expect us to answer a question that you don't know how to ask?

    Please try to figure out what it is that you want to know.

    When humans speak most of the energy produced is in the 300-500Hz frequency range but it extends up to about 3-4 Khz.


    Humans can hear a much wider range of frequencies..

    The OP's question seems to me correctly answered by CWatters in post #3.
