Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: speaker listening levels.

It depends. Listening at 90 dB for a relatively short period is fun, like when I put on Joe Cocker's "You Can Leave Your Hat On". Listening at 90 dB for hours is not good for your hearing. Google "hearing damage sound level" and read all about it for the weekend. Monday morning, you'll be a smarter guy.

I used to be the sound guy for a little rock band, and wore earplugs. Not so much because we were "so loud", but because of the peaks and the fact that we did 3-5 gigs a week.
