Default Magico's Q sub 18

Has anyone heard this beast? 2 18 inch drivers in it and weighs 570 pounds. Each driver is enclosed with a 2 inch baffle. Indicates in the description that it produces 175 db pressurization, the same level of pressure as a Boeing taking off!

What's amazing is the cabinet. 1 % displacement of the enclosure at 175 db.

I believe this thing is priced at 36,000.

Would love to see/hear this!

One of the loudest sounds ever recorded was NASA's Saturn V rocket, which registered 204 decibels.

Even crazier! Where does The Who fit in, and Quest Field Seattle with one of the loudest stadiums in the country?

QWEST -- now known as CenturyLink field in Seattle was 137.6db -- Kansas City Chiefs fans' broke Seattle Seahawks' fans' record of having the loudest outdoor stadium by creating 142.2 decibels worth of noise at Arrowhead Stadium Monday night back in September 2014.

It’s a crazy loud stadium, I didn’t realize we have been beat, will work on changing that!

I live in the past on many things, maybe don’t want to let go, dunno -

Interesting. Where was that level measured?

I was in the press area for Skylab which was aboard the most powerful Saturn V ever. Unforgettable.

**The launch of a Saturn V rocket, for example, produces around 220 decibels, which ignites grass a mile away with the sound alone. The launch pad has to dump 300,000 gallons of water in 41 seconds below the rocket for absorption or the reflected sound waves would rip the rocket apart.

**The water suppression system reduces the acoustic sound level to approximately 142 dB.

Best Sirs & apologize for varying off OP topic,

Bob
