    How loud is 140DB on bass?

    I'm just curious as to how loud 140DB actually is. If I was blaring music @ 140DB with the windows down / doors open, how far would someone be able to hear it? Would I be able to "feel" the music if I was in the car?

    And no, i'm not one of those obnoxious guys who just blare bass and ruin it for us all, i'm actually just curious.

    haha yes you can feel it but how the hell can you explain how loud something is

    Im thinking my XL is around 140, but i can actually feel lows drill into my ears. When im parked at a local gas station i can make the bottles on the wall rattle and make some weird noises in the roof

    When a 140db drops and you're in the car, it hits you in the chest so hard your shoulders will touch.

    tickles your ears =/= hurt

    the same 155 at 40-45hz (while easier to do) actually hurts after a few seconds.



    Stupid Loud.
