IIRC, THE RECORD FOR A "TRUCK SUBWOOFER" IS A NOTCH OVER 180 DECIBELS.

Keep in mind that a decibel is a logarithmic unit, not a linear one.

154 dB is really, really REALLY loud. I'm not even sure it qualifies as "sound" any more at that point.

The quality of the music is usually inversely proportional to the loudness of the car speaker through which it is being played. This thing is built for Bieber.

I'd settle for being just loud enough to blow women's clothes off.

Maybe so, but is it hooked up to the drive shaft?

154. That's not that high when you get into big car stereos. 160 isn't that uncommon, and people survive just fine inside the vehicle at that point.

Now, bring frequency into it and the decibel level can become more important...

Did you miss the part about 150dB being enough to rupture eardrums?

I SAID, DID YOU MISS THE PART ABOUT 150DB BEING ENOUGH TO RUPTURE EARDRUMS?

They must be borrowing the monitors from Disaster Area's sound system.

My first thought as well.

My Dual Rectifier (guitar amp) peaks at somewhere around 125-130 decibels.  Around the same level as a jet engine spinning up.

So, like any regular speaker playing ACDC, then?

IIRC, it takes over 200 dB to kill you, 210 dB being enough to rupture some of the squishy stuff and 250 dB to stop your heart. Not sure how accurate, I only remember it as an interesting factoid while learning about dBm in mah radio class several years ago.

The Googles is telling me that the loudest sound possible is 194db.

Never mind, things can be louder, but at that point they are considered pressure waves.
