Voltage lineararity

#16 Post by Rich4349 » Tue Jan 02, 2018 4:34 pm

On a mild tangent: is output as related to voltage linear? Meaning is 50 volts going to be twice as loud as 25?
2 DR250s, 2 27" Lab15 T-60s, 2 30" Neo Titan 39s, 1 Autotuba...and looking for more!

50 volts is 4 x the power of 25 volts. So it is 6 dB louder (on paper, in the real world the would probably be some power compression).
Usually 10 dB is heard as twice as loud, so close but not quite.
Built:
17" width 10" driver Autotuba
2 x 29" width dual Lab12 Tuba60
6 x DR250 2510/asd1001
In progress:
2 x DR250 2510/asd1001
For best results, point the loud end of the array towards the audience
