Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

Best out of 4 meter attempts is 139.7db and I fogot at what Hz. Don't really know yet, still playing around on my meter time, as long as I'm above 135db you don't lose points in SQ. If my box fires rearwards it would be louder, but I wanted SQ baby. And I allways wanted a plexi box where you could see the magnets, now I have one right now in my trunk!

The Aurora hit best of 132.8db with 2 10w3'* off 500.1 also firing into the cabin.

I'd say that is VERY loud. Defening
Shotgun blast loud.
Hope you wear your earplugs and ear muffs.

In my younger years I listened to very loud rock music. I'm just on the verge of paying for it now. Need to crank it up just to hear it. :P

The increase from the Aurora to the Bonne system is 4 times louder since sound intensity doubles for every 3 db increase. Impressive.

What?
I know low 140'* are reachable, next time I'll just unhook the rca for the interior speakers and just pound the bass, if the sub blows or the amp (not likely) It will get replaced for free, got to love the 5 year warrenty on everything.
I am going to earn that "+140 Db" sticker.
