there is a nice article on typical freq and db levels of the common sounds .we come across various types of ppl here who are searching for speaker,amplifier,home theater gear etc.But just a simple set of audio equipments is not suitable for all types of sounds...what is the recommended strategy while purchasing audio equipment is that,is to make sure the new purchase at least satisfies some good deal of frequencies that normally the type of music hear contains.

It is not like itz a pro-audio system and it is good for all types of music ,itz a well known truth the equipment combination creates a blend of frequencies that varies with the input material.

for this purchase one will be spending ample amount of money and to satisfy his music taste
proper auditioning is very important .so the link gives you an idea of the frequencies and db levels.

how it will be helpful?
well just see the ranges of frequency ,and one can make a good choice of CDs where the music is created with the instruments of interest ,the span of instruments /sounds to be choosen will be easy if one can have afair idea of the frequency bands.

One more factor is the material the speakers are built of ,for example a silk dome tweeter is very smooth on highs hence a preferred component in a stereo setup ,whereas polycone tweeter will do fine in a movie setup etc.

not to add too much technical terms as it will turn down a general reader ...just have a look at the spectrum n you will know why your system is good at some music and not so good at some other types..:)



here is the link, thought it will be helpful :
