    how many W7s/IA 15s will I need to hit 210 dbs, beating the world record for loudest recorded sound ever? :wiggle: :naughty:

    your best bet is gonna be a single W7 in a small enclosure. about 2000w of power and the microphone placed inside the box.

    With cabin gain and everything taken into account you should be able to pull 100dB/watt so it seems to me you need somewhere between 2 and 3 watts to a single sub. Obviously. Can't you add? :dunno:

    i was thinking of building a giant steel box in the middle of a field and putting 500 w7s in it, the steel will be tanker ship hull quality and i will run direct power from the transformer outside my house and power it all with with about 250 crown amps and giant custom built 1000 farad capacitators. not only this but the inside of the steel box will be lined with second skin audio damplifier pro. when i hit the world record ill be playing three six mafia - late nite tip.

    all of this will be accomplished using a term lab sensor with ngsm on site to serve as witness

    <chappelle>that's balllaa</chappelle>

    Lawl.

    The W7's would definitely fail. Definitely not the drive you'd want to use for SPL output.

    As far as loudest recorded sound in the Earth's atmosphere (air) I don't believe you can even reach 200dB's... underwater is another story.

    It's ALL about the enclosure and such. At world finals, one DD 9917z and two DD Z2's did a 177.8dB, with a 180 coming soon... from ONE woofer.

    screw the amps and caps, just set it up to peak at 60 Hz, run straight off of AC power.

    but 210 dB at ~ 30ish Hz when "Late Nite Tip" drops low in the first verse.....ftmfw!

    Good luck with that.

    Another extreme1 van is doing over a 170 @43hz with two Crossfire 4000d's and a single Fi Audio BTL18.

    eh, i'm sure you've plugged a sub in the wall to have it replaced under "warranty" because it "blew" :mamoru: standard AC is 110v @ 60 Hz, soooo.......if you were running 440 off a transformer to a massive enclosure tuned @ 60Hz (except i don't know what frequency 440A runs).......follow where I'm going with this? since this is all hypothetical, that's my theory, though it probably wouldn't work too well. :bigthumb:

    Eh... if you have unlimited money... I'm sure you could have the amperage/electrical/batteries to back up whatever 12V amplifiers you wanted ;)...

    Also, if you want the enclosure to peak @60hz... you'd want to tune ~53-54hz. Not to mention... to get to this type of SPL levels... you'd have to have a multi-chambered bandpass horn.

    ;)

    Exactly. W7's arent exactly built for SPL. They are first and foremost a SQ sub but due to the way they are built, they lend themselves to be pushed more than your average sub.

    I'm not sure if 210db is even possible, but if you got a city bus and installed 200 of them in there ported and tuned to the res freq. of the bus, then enclosed the bus in a 30 foot thick concrete block, you might be able to hit over 190.

    Nope. Going about it all wrong.

    Like i said earlier, I believe the threshold in our atmosphere is ~193

    i'm not questioning your knowledge on them, but w7s are not geared towards sq. dont get me wrong, i love the way JL subs sound, but there are much better subs geared towards sq out there.
