    Befuddled

    Snooping around a bit, you people amuse me. Firstly, I'm likely older than most of you at 49 which in itself means nothing other than I've had a chance to learn from more mistakes than most of you have. I was also a "genius" at 17 and knew far more than my elders. Yeah, right. Enough of that. I'm not your dad and its not my job to be. Most of my equipment is also likely older than most of you (late '70s, early '80s vintage). My home stereo (McIntosh powered, of course) will deliver 130dB of absolutely undistorted hearing damage. If ANY of you were to try to stand it for an album (yes, those vinyl thingies) side without suffering painful permanent hearing damage (tinnitus) you must be wearing earplugs. It WILL permanently damage your hearing. This is with 300W/ch in a large room and 100dB/W Klipsch speakers. What exactly is the point of ANYTHING hitting 150+dB (which I seriously doubt is possible anyways, you're kidding yourselves). Doubling the power gets you 3 dB. Roughly 128000w at 100dB/W for 151 dB. Then again, you "kids" like nothing but bass (cause it sounds cool???) rather than full range music. If your amps actually delivered the watts they advertise, 100W/ch would make your ears bleed in a full sized sedan, let alone a ratty-assed Honda or other import crap. I drive a full-sized Blazer (kinda like a Yukon for you younger crowd) with 100/ch with 3-way "house" speakers in the back. The rear-view (windshield mounted) mirror is useless when cranked. The lights dim at stoplights with a 250A alternator. That's a REAL 100W/ch amp.

    You know what they say about a closed mouth attracting no feet?

    Be careful who you generalize around here, you might realize it's not so homogeneous Just hope you're not on AK...

    Re: Befuddled

    OP, you sound like my grandpa. He thinks the same way you do and is a sound expert and electrician. He has be an electrician for 28 years and installing proffessional audio for over 25 years. I kinda see what you are saying because i hear it from him every day, but 150+ db is very easy to achieve if you have the money and space. And i myself am not a bass head, so please don't call me that. I like the cleanest sound possible and am more for SQ than SPL. Most of the stuff you pointed at are just ignorant though, so please make some sense before you open your mouth.

    edit: and home audio and professional audio equipment is rated differently, my home theater front towers are 130 rms and are 4 times louder than my car components which are 150 rms. It is on a different scale i guess you could say.
