Just imagine what that does to your ears !!!

 

That's nothing. If you tape the top and bottom of a piece of paper to the grill they will rip it in half.

Yep..

Pretty much the same would happen to your ear-drum if you taped it to the woofer :)

 

Anyway, part of the answer to the OP's question is :

They want to give you an Unforgettable experience that you can not, under any circumstances, have at home .

They also know that A LOT of people are bass-heads -  Personally, I loathe excessive bass that is everywhere, it steals the 'space' for everything else,

except crash-cymbals .. I loathe those even more, they steal even MORE space for everything else and fry your hearing in the process, being impact-noise .

 

Edit :

These are 2 of my absolute favourite musicians :

So, it's not that I dislike drumm'n'bass, but as always :

What is NOT played is at least as important as what IS !

 

I apologise for all the subjective talk, Love of music got me carried away :)

Some bands kind of go overboard with the bass nowadays.

 

The last STS9 concert I went to you could barely even hear the guitar. Granted it was a small venue with not that great of a soundsystem, but they had it balanced so that it was just waves of bass coming out at you that totally drowned all the other sounds.

 

I blame dubstep...
