Some companies stick to the standard +/- 3dB deviation for frequency response, while others will list bass extensions as numbers -6dB or even -10dB. Is this just a way to make their specifications look better? How many dB, can you still see the bass feedback that can be used?

Subquestion - for a classical rock and folk listener, is there even a point in getting into the 20Hz range? The lowest bass note of a bass guitar is 31Hz and the lowest key of the piano is 27.5Hz. Looking at the instrument frequency chart, you get almost everything at 60Hz or higher. Amazingly and enlightened when I looked at one of those charts and realized how many instruments actually dropped below 60Hz

Life is too short to worry about technicalities like this when listening to music, get a life.

whatever the tech specs were...
I have very fond memories of late 70s / early 80s dub reggae sound system bass bins...

I thought this was going to be about theorboes.

The sound where bass made the most difference among any music I know was the Marimba Eroica built by Harry Partch. He intended that you should perceive the sound more with your arse than your ears. Those big reggae speakers could just about reproduce it.

There is at least one conventional instrument that can acoustically produce very low frequencies, down to 20Hz and below, and that is the organ.
