I don't remember this song having this much bass. Maybe it was some remix or something by someone.

He may just have the bass jacked up in one of the EQ settings or one of the presets.

It doesn't, it's just an example of idiocy in action. I'm only surprised that he doesn't light up a smoke so he can destroy his kids lungs as well as their eardrums. The song title couldn't be more apt.

I see this sometimes too, kids in a car with a cranked sound system, it is appalling. Stupid stupid people don't realize that children's hearing is a lot more sensitive than adults, and can be damaged much easier. Hopefully someone lets this moron know what kind of damage he is doing, assuming he cares more about being a decent father than showing off.

I'm not sure what is worse, the fact that he's playing music that loud with his kids in the car, or the fact that he's doing it while driving and at the same time video taping it all and clearly focusing more on what he's video taping versus where he's driving.

This would be a good commercial for Trojan as it's a perfect example why some people just shouldn't have kids.

To be more specific, why his parents should not have had any. wink.gif

Happens every year when our station sponsors one of the big outdoor concerts. I'm constantly shooing away parents with babies in a stroller who want to park their lawn furniture in front of the bank of speakers off to either side. Common sense...it's never common.

Smudge981 when you warn them about the dangers of being to close to the speakers do they appreciate it or get mad at you? I usually get the don't tell me what to do when I try to warn someone about something dangerous.

airgas since the kids hearing is so sensitive have these kids probably already suffered severe hearing loss from his loud system?

pbc good points it is dangerous to film the loud playing stereo because he may not see a car and have a wreck.

I remember a friend telling me that when his friend had kids they took out the two 12 inch subwoofers that they used to have for the sake of the kids hearing. My friend said also that it is very bad on kids ears.

One time I saw a 70 or 80 year old woman with a big old car. maybe she was 60, but she did look old. She had big subwoofers in the trunk. She had a lot of kids in the car. They were nodding there head and getting into it. She was playing the rap group 69 boyz. I think it was the album that had the song tootsie roll on it.

LOL, I have noticed this before. Pink Floyd does give the subs a workout. Some Pink Floyd music would be great for a GTG.

I'd say the majority appreciated my concern. The bottom line is, many people are just ignorant of what loud noises do to their hearing. If you're ever at a party or an event, take notice what normal children, who are not used to loud noises, do when they pass a speaker. They instinctively put their hands to their ears.

A) he couldn't do this in a parking lot instead of traffic?
B) those poor kids! I'll bet Dad as some killer panasonic thrusters in his home rig.
C) judging by the home made install of the door speakers, I'll bet he has the amp jacked to 10 and is clipping the snot out of his subs. Floyd has good synth bass, but not "Bass I love You" bass.

smudge I wonder if the dad already has hearing damage. Speaking of loud noises I have seen on the news where parents complained about loud noises for kids toy guns hurting peoples ears. A lot of them were worried about the toy making the kid go deaf. I remember a lawsuit a long time ago over parents saying the smashing pumpkins concert made them go deaf for being to loud. Parents said that they also were deaf from a loud Justin Bieber concert. he wore some suit that reflected the sound waves from the girls screaming and the music. I forget what suit that it was, but I read about it online.

smudge I remember a guy from high school who had the loudest car stereo at school. everyone was impressed with his bass. a friend of his later told me that he is now deaf from it. he had Rockford Fosgate in his truck. two or three twelve inch subs and a big amp.

I am aware of effects of loud music on ears, but lungs?
What effects does this cause and when?

I don't attend a single concert without my sonic earplugs. Likewise when I'm on the shooting range. I'm already starting to lose some hearing from all the concerts I attended going back to Steppenwolf in '67 (or was it '68?) I consider any parent who introduces kids to anything above a certain decible level child abuse. For what it's worth, the AMAs the other night hit a ratings low despite Bieber's appearance. Probably because it was past his fans' bedtime. tongue.gif

Loud bass will not hurt ears. It's the higher frequencies that do that. What loud bass does is cause internal organ damage by the organs vibrating against each other.

Unfortunately this is not true. Loud bass is just as destructive to the hearing mechanisms as higher frequencies even if it's not as noticeably painful. You don't notice it as much because your hearing is less audibly sensitive to low frequencies versus high frequencies. Don't kid yourself. With long-term exposure to loud sounds at virtually any frequency, you will pay the price in the form of hearing loss and/or tinnitus.

There is a difference in the damaging effect of low frequencies and high frequencies, but it isn't an infinte difference. Simply standing in a stiff breeze can pump your ears with some very strong bass, but I've never heard of someone damaging their ears that way.

OSHA recommends measuring the damaging effects of noise using an A-weighted calibration curve, which dramatically rolls of the low end:
