Yes.

Will there be anything else?

my guitarist sent me this article and then the band purchased a sub-woofer which we use at our gig this coming Friday.

I read a study a while back that also pointed to sub-range frequencies producing certain Alpha waves in the brain, contributing to the relaxation and pleasure of the listener.

And the simple fact remains, a listener can tolerate higher SPL volumes for longer periods if there is a strong bass balance. It's shrill HF information at high volumes that fatigue the listener.

So, get that sub into your band PA, crank it up, and keep your dance floor packed!
