    Thanks for your time

    I'm not sure if what you just said was correct.

    You can take 2 measurements from any wave, its frequency and its amplitude.
    Woofers (a term you will find a lot in car sound systems. Sub woofers/bass tubes etc.) are devices than concern themselves with low frequencies. Tweeters (the opposite term of woofers used in ICE In-Car-Entertainment/speaker talk) are concerned with high frequencies.

    Low frequencies give low notes. High frequencies give high notes.

    But loudness is to do with a wave's amplitude. You can have a low frequency wave and a high frequency wave with the same amplitude - they would have the same loudness.

    Maybe you're talking about loudness and resonance? This has something to with the design of the box you put a speaker in.

    Yeah i think its to do with resonance.... i just dont understand it and btw if u have as u said a low frequency and a high frequency wave with same amplitude if it would be a song what would be the difference between both??

    Im not sure what your asking? Are you asking what difference would ours ears hear from a low frequency and high frequency sound of same amplitude?

    Well they would be just as loud - but different in pitch. Amplitude changes loudness. Frequency changes pitch. Not sure if that helps.
