    A jet engine at 100' is 140 dB so you're ready for the Laguardia Airport tarmac.

    As loud as 140dB on treble.

    Lol those comparisons are never fair, compare the frequency that a jet engine emits sound at and the low frequencies a sub puts out

    mid to high 50's at 30ish just makes it hard to breathe. Stupid loud mids is what makes my ears ring.

    140 Is loud enough to be annoying. but not from too far away.

    Re: How loud is 140DB on bass?

    OP, 140dB is pretty **** loud but it all comes down to how "well trained" your ear is. As mentioned in a few posts above, the actual peak frequency of your bass makes all the difference...

    Our ears are most sensitive at 1khz, 3khz at 140db would cause permanent hearing damage after mere minutes. You would be very able to hear it...

    NVM, I was late to the party.

    EDIT: Loved this part of that "Decibel Comparison Chart" Website- "High frequency sounds of 2-4,000 Hz are the most damaging. The uppermost octave of the piccolo is 2,048-4,096 Hz."



    Stupid Loud.

    Asking this is like asking how long 3 centimeters is.



    Things to look forward to:
    (2) 10" or 12" imperium audio designs subs
    set of PHD MF 6.5" comps
    Completely seal off and deaden my doors
    aquire a 2k amp
    aquire a 2 channel amp for front stage
