I bet you jackasses with your tin-can mufflers are going to start mounting these things on your cars. Because nothing says "I'm a big strong man who exerts his will on others to compensate for my lack of control in my financial, social and sex life" like being loud enough to wake the farking dead.

This link seems to get greenlighted about once per month. Is this some kind of automatic FARK submission thing??

/doesn't understand.

do I get to be the first one to say repeat?

It sounds like this:

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLD NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEWS!!!!

The Icelander
Take your pill today?
 
2006-04-24 12:58:14 PM  
The Icelander wins, thread over. Thank you all for turning out and playing.
 
2006-04-24 12:58:48 PM  
Not only is this a repost, it's FARKED!

wookie1,

Check your browser, I just got in no problem.
 
2006-04-24 12:59:31 PM  
WHAT?
 
2006-04-24 12:59:42 PM  
I bet when the kids ducked and covered, they turned to each other and said, "you think that thing has a hemi?"
 
2006-04-24 12:59:49 PM  
Icelander... and here I was wondering if they made a miniature version for my car.
 
2006-04-24 01:00:02 PM  
Well of course it might be loud, it's 138dB. That is, by definition, loud.
 
2006-04-24 01:00:02 PM  
The Icelander

It might be so loud that it will blow the cars clear out of your way. Yeah, I'd buy one.
 
2006-04-24 01:00:15 PM  
it goes wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
 
2006-04-24 01:00:30 PM  
The loudness of this siren is unmatched by any other warning device ever sold, ever.

The posting of the article is redundant, as is the article itself. Asplode.
 
2006-04-24 01:01:08 PM  
Maybe I'm just pissed off at you idiots who like "the cars that go boom" and "a nice exhaust note" but fail to realize that SOME OF US MIGHT WANT SOME farkING PEACE AND QUIET!
 
2006-04-24 01:02:16 PM  
Almost loud enough to stop the human heart. Cool!

As a studio guy, I'd very much like a sample of this, though most mics couldn't handle the load, and I can only imagine what sound pressure levels that things produces.
 
2006-04-24 01:02:36 PM  
I want one
 
2006-04-24 01:02:54 PM  
Sure, it's loud.

But does it repeatedly get greenlit?

/oh, it does?

wookie1,

Check your browser, I just got in no problem.


When I say FARKED, I mean it didn't come up immediately - cuz I'm impatient.


But a more pressing question is, How are you only getting 180HP out of a Hemi? It should be at least double that.

 
2006-04-24 01:04:04 PM  
it goes wooWOO!

But will it breakdown?

- My buddy's car stereo is 150db

- The air raid siren has got nothin'

I bet you jackasses with your tin-can mufflers are going to start mounting these things on your cars.

First thing I thought of. Some eunuch is going to install this in the bed of his pickup, or something, and then drive around and blow it at nearby cars whenever he feels the need to compensate for not having any testicles.

180hp? Is that it? My 4-banger makes more than that
 
2006-04-24 01:07:05 PM  
I won't be impressed till I hear it used during a live performance of War Pigs

Your buddy:

A) is a moron
B) is producing sound in a confined area about 30 cubic feet, roughly, which is MUCH different than in open air
C) will hopefully never reproduce

Coolest repeat you'll see today: 138db Chrysler Air Raid Siren powered by 180HP V8 Hemi engine might be loud

/fixed that headline for ya Submitter
 
2006-04-24 01:08:04 PM  
I SAID, "PETE AND REPEAT...!!!!"
 
2006-04-24 01:08:32 PM  
180 HP? Is there a squirrel stuck in the intake or something?
 
2006-04-24 01:09:56 PM  
Link farked now but I believe the diagram said 12 feet long? If so you better be driving a dump truck to install one of these.
 
2006-04-24 01:10:51 PM  
joesephbananas

Yeah, but is it 150 dB at 100 feet? That's like 180 dB at 3 feet. Holy crap.

wookie1 "But a more pressing question is, How are you only getting 180HP out of a Hemi? It should be at least double that."


The HEMI Started out as a trackor engine. Was in a combine.

Is full of shiat.
 
2006-04-24 01:13:35 PM  
I would love to modify one of those sirens to play the Brown Note.
 
2006-04-24 01:14:24 PM  
The Chrysler Air Raid Siren is so powerful that it can reportedly start fires with just the sound vibrations it produces. It can turn fog into rain, clearing the sky.


this thing just needs a beard and it's chuck norris.
 
2006-04-24 01:14:38 PM  
The Icelander wins!!! go home now

kthxbye
 
2006-04-24 01:15:46 PM  
It may be loud, but with gas at $3 a gallon, it'll be short.
 
2006-04-24 01:15:58 PM

"138 dB C-weighted is approximately equal to 30,000 Watts of sound power."

Ok... (copy/paste disabled... piss off)

"warning sirens today produce a sound level of 127 dB at 100 feet"

WOW!!!! A whole 11Db!!! That's a MAMMOTH increase!!1one
