The first resonance frequency is lowered to around 200 Hz, which means that the lower-frequency harmonics can benefit from vocal tract acoustic inertance in a range from 200-1500 Hz.
The acoustic inertance of the vocal tract also lowers the phonation threshold pressure.
The hypothesis here is that whistle voice makes use of a source-vocal tract interaction based on acoustic inertance below the third formant.
