'speed' of sound vs. 'feel' of sound??? (e.g. subwoofer, tree falling, etc.) When bass plays from a subwoofer, a tree falls, a bomb explodes or something similar there's a very real physical sensation that accompanies the sound. My mind is most curious to know if these travel at the exact same speed (being the same 'force' hitting two different sensory receptors) or if one travels quicker than the other (being two different 'forces'). Any thoughts? p.s. if the answer is completely obvious, sorry!
