I think the property of low-frequency sound being referred to, is the tendancy of ULF soundwaves to transmit through solid objects rather than be reflected by them. However, that tendancy relates to ULF, outside the range of human hearing. Of course, it will definitely keep one safe from elephants and cats.

Can you really say with a solid level of confidence that "loud pipes..." proponents are going to pull out that argument, even if the question of pipe orientation was heavily debated?
