LPF = ( low frequencie pass) All frequencies below cut off can pass through 

HPF ( high frequencie pass) = All frequencies abouve cut off can pass through 

Band Pass Filter = Combination of LPF and HPF all frequencies not affected by either pass through 

Notch Filter = Used to cut spesific frequencies exteme band pass

Shelving Filter = Tone Control on hifis and guitar amps
