Good question, had to look this one up...

According to this NASA Lift Off research paper: http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a081792.pdf

10-20hz:
>165db ripped eardrums
>160db eardrum damage is likely
153-160db technically safe, but not really recommended still.
153db caused severe discomfort: choking of the throat. severe nervousness. Highest recommend SPL (even with lawyers waived.)
140-150 nervousness is induced
137-145db chest/lung movement noticed, very distracting. (SPL reached inside Space Shuttle at launch.)
120db all frequencies are clearly audible, and start of annoyances, feel like underwater, nausea-sensitive people affected
105-130 caused a drunken-like condition in math tests

So lets call 153db a full 6 Stars and 5+ some in-between scale... I don't think anybody would want to have a choking experience when watching movies,
perhaps as a short bassheaded system-demo though. That should keep the system builders busy for the next 100 years...
