136.6 dB

136.6 dBSPL.

Turn the volume up on your stereo until it starts to hurt your ears. Then turn it up until it sounds roughly ten times louder. That’s 4571 times the acoustic power of the threshold of pain. Instant hearing damage. (Technically, after 13 milliseconds of unprotected exposure)

Get yourself 30,000 rounds of AK-47 ammunition (and a pair of ‘Ove’ Gloves and a really trusting friend to swap out clips for you) and fire on full-auto until you run out of ammo, and you will have some idea of what it would be like to sit in the Hawk’s Nest on game day.

Go Hawks!
