Hearing low frequency in a confined area.

<font color='#000000'>OK, I have a question.

Let say for instance you are sitting in a room that is 10 feet long. &nbsp;You are listening only to a 12in subwoofer. &nbsp;The cross-over point on the woofer is set at 60hz. &nbsp;A frequency of 60hz produces a sound wave with a wavelength of ~18.83 feet. &nbsp;

Are you able to HEAR the low frequencies produced by the subwoofer altough the room doesn't allow a complete wavelength to be created?

...and if you don't mind, why? or why not?

Thanks,

Once the wavelength matches your room size the room will become resonant, reinforcing the resonant frequency.
