5.1 Multi-channel Audio

From Chace Audio

5.1 multi-channel audio refers to stereo audio program intended to be monitored through six channels: five full frequency range (20Hz to 20KHz) channels intended as Front Left, Front Center, Front Right, Left Surround, and Right Surround, and one frequency limited (below 120Hz) channel for the LFE (Low Frequency Effects), or Subwoofer track. This format is also typically referred to simply as "5.1."
