The meat of the bass...

Is there any program out there that can analyze WAV or MP3 files and show you in an easy to read format what bass frequencies are dominant in the song?

Trying to figure out what frequency range is most common in the kind of music I listen to (which is a pretty wide variety) and what song to put on that would really make my system shine when I'm showing it off.

Downloaded it and installed it, but it just looks like a simpler version of SoundForge, which I already have.

I tried using the spectrum analyzer, but it's hard to clearly see which bass frequencies are clearly dominant in the song.

Any additional tips on how you use it to accomplish that?

im not to great with it to be honest, i can use it to slow down a song, speed one up a bit, and add to the bass so thats all i need it for. as it does show frequencys but you do need to do some math to figure out the rates.

Say for example, the song Mims - This Is Why I'm hot ...what are the major bass frequencies used in that song?

It performs really well on my existing system, but I want to know how it'll stack up on my upcoming system, as well as other songs, so I can design a box that will shine in the frequency range I like best.

Try Speclab. The link brings you to the download section but scroll up to get the overview of the program.

TrueRTA looks very complex and it scares me, plus it doesn't look like it reads wave files, only live input.

Speclab actually seems to be working pretty well for what I'm trying to do. It's given the clearest results so far but I think I need to fiddle with the settings to see what I'm looking for.
