Can you ever have too much power???


Recommended Posts


I may not have been clear in what I was trying to describe. I was not trying to say that 2 dB is the lowest volume a human ear can detect. I was saying that a DIFFERENCE of 2 dB is typically the smallest DIFFERENCE in volume levels that a typical human can detect. That is most people won't notice a difference in volume between say 90 dB and 91 dB.

You are correct in that measurements of dB are not absolute values. Decibels only represent differences in level. It is much the same as degrees in temperature. Degrees in temperature are not absolute either. Seventy degrees farenheit only means something to us because a reference to the freezing point of water (and the boiling temperature of water) was made.

Hope that is a little clearer.
