    Make aure you're wearing hearing protection. Prolonged exposure to those sorts of decibel levels will cause permanent hearing loss.

    Where did you get that measurement taken @dejesu ? My blown stock speakers are louder than that.

    Those meters are junk for measuring in your car.
    I think i got up to 96db in my car on my android app.
