This must be correct ; an example of this is the fact that we hear the "crack" before the "boom" resulting from distant lightening.

However, tanking into account that the speed of sound is constant for all frequencies, can anyone recommend a text (or better yet, a link) which clearly explains this perceived delay of LF?

Thanks in advance,
