    I'm sure the OP was wanting the real world comparisons, and a notion of whether this level would cause vehicle and hearing damage. The answer to both, unfortunately, is maybe.



    Stupid Loud.

    I believe I saw a vid of that a long time ago... You post one up a few months back, where you walk up to it with the camera from quite a distance off(and it was stupid loud even at that distance).?

    I've never done vids, but others have and they usually end up on youtube...

    It's loud enough to hurt, but actually sounds very good at moderate volumes.

    KISS used to play at 120 dB I read in my Dad's Playboy when I was a kid in 1978 or so. The pictures were better, of course. Hummina, Hummina.

    Lol those comparisons are never fair, compare the frequency that a jet engine emits sound at and the low frequencies a sub puts out
    True. I'd just like to see the guys who test the jet engines when they start up. That must be like rock n roll and a cool breeze. I'd would have liked to see Jerry Lewis in front of a jet engine - that's funny.

    Re: How loud is 140DB on bass?

    So, there is a difference between pain/pressure or discomfort.. Question:

    When using my daily Ill feel "pressure" (like when taking off in an airplane type pressure, just not popping).. very uncomfortable but I dont associated it with "pain". Is that understood the be the "PAIN" in the decibel chart??

    Not sure about the chart but to me PAIN is when your ears fuggin hurt, literally. Mid/upper 40's freqs played very loudly will do that. Loud mids/highs not so much, until you're done playing and ears are ringing......for 2 days afterwards. NOT a good thing...
