People generally produce a bandwidth of 9,900Hz with frequencies in the range of 100Hz to 10,000Hz. Speech that falls between 250Hz and 3,400Hz is considered intelligible speech and therefore the network circuits use bandwidth-limiting filters designed to filter out all frequencies above 4,000Hz....   [tags: Conversions, Transmissions, Amplitude, Frequency]
