When the output of a filter is fed back into its input, the result is an increased boost in the harmonics right around the filter’s cutoff or corner frequency. The audible result is similar to playing a sound in a room that has a resonance – sympathetic, reinforcing echo or vibration – at a certain frequency. Therefore, the term resonance is often used to refer to a filter’s feedback amount.
