    Befuddled 2

    Sorry I ruffled some feathers, that was not my intent. I meant to ask why would you even consider something so loud? Other than annoying others, you can't possibly stand to listen to it in your vehicle, you'd suffer hearing damage. I don't have a SPL meter, but calculations indicate 127dB (+3 for the other speaker) in my home. Yeah, thats at a meter,etc. Its far too loud for anyone to take for more than a few (very few) seconds without discomfort. I like rock, don't get me wrong, but SRV actually hurts. I'm old so my ears aren't as sensitive as most of yours. 130dB is nothing compared to 140dB, let alone 150. I suppose if most of it is bass it may not hurt as much as one responder deftly pointed out. English major at another's expense no doubt. Parse this and bill your daddy. Buy American, the job you save may well be your own.

    Decibel (Loudness) Comparison Chart

    Here are some interesting numbers, collected from a variety of sources, that help one to understand the volume levels of various sources and how they can affect our hearing.

    Environmental Noise
    Weakest sound heard 0dB
    Whisper Quiet Library 30dB
    Normal conversation (3-5') 60-70dB
    Telephone dial tone 80dB
    City Traffic (inside car) 85dB
    Train whistle at 500', Truck Traffic 90dB
    Subway train at 200' 95dB
    Level at which sustained exposure may result in hearing loss 90 - 95dB
    Power mower at 3' 107dB
    Snowmobile, Motorcycle 100dB
    Power saw at 3' 110dB
    Sandblasting, Loud Rock Concert 115dB
    Pain begins 125dB
    Pneumatic riveter at 4' 125dB
    Even short term exposure can cause permanent damage - Loudest recommended exposure WITH hearing protection 140dB
    Jet engine at 100', Gun Blast 140dB
    Death of hearing tissue 180dB
    Loudest sound possible 194dB


    OSHA Daily Permissible Noise Level Exposure
    Hours per day Sound level
    8 90dB
    6 92dB
    4 95dB
    3 97dB

    it says a gun blast is 140 db, if that is the case how could anyone stand to listen to 150 db for even 10 seconds? I shot a few guns in my day that were around 140 db and it hurt my ears bad.

    Not at all, ask my old lady. I crank em up (too loud) and have tinnitus because of it. Lynyrd Skynyrd Second Helping among others have that effect. The 800W powered Klipsch sub just rattles ****, the floorstanders get downright painful. The ****** part of it is now that I could actually afford this kind of stereo there are few others to share it with, all married with kids etc. Me and my dog usually, and an occaisional escapee.
