:D :D :D that's hilarious, Seth!

Just dug out my db meter. The cicadas are registering over 90db right now. Hot day, just had a little rain, and they are singing like crazy!
None of those out here in Cali. Didn't even know they existed until I moved to Wisconsin a handful of years ago. Noisy little buggers for sure.

Had never seen a firefly/lightning bug either, until then. Only on cartoons. Wasn't really sure if they really existed or not. LOL

I hope so. At the moment though the military has us pretty well locked down due to COVID. We are allowed to go to restaurants and stores but not to establishments whose primary business is selling alcohol. So that pretty much rules out playing music and running sound.

On another note, my retirement request was approved so I'll be outta here in December. I hope that I can do more musically without the heavy restrictions that come along with active duty.
Thanks for your service Bryan and congrats on your retirement :thumbsup: If I could go back in time, I'd have enlisted right out of high school.

Hopefully the COVID restrictions will loosen up for you over the next couple months.
I really appreciate it, Seth. Thank you. Either way, this December I'll no longer be subject to Federal rules so I plan to make a ton of noise.

I thought you'd just love this guy's set up.
I think his poster says "BILE SOUNDS" :shock:

Any takers on an old school "word problem"? :mrgreen:


How much power would it take a speaker with 98dB average sensitivity to match the output of a speaker with a 102dB average on 125watts?
310 watts. :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:

Close enough to assume you got it right and rounded to the nearest 10. Well done Tom :clap: Rounded to the nearest tenth, I get 313.8

Did you set that up in a spreadsheet or plunk it out on the calculator?

Seth, I figured out how to do it with the calculator provided by Ubuntu 20.04. I first had to enter log, then the power figure and then equals... after which I multiplied by 10, and added that to the original db.

I figured that the nearest 10 was enough (for me). :lol:
