16.8kw ? Do your ears still function?
As everyone likely knows;
10dB peaks require 10x power
20dB peaks require 100x power
30dB peaks require 1000x power
We listen at relatively modest levels nearly all the time. However, the ability to reproduce the phenomenal peak energy that's all too often associated with much of the content we enjoy.
Do the math to deliver ref levels at the LP, it's staggering. Then, upon examining the lowest octaves of the LF range, consider how truly unbelievable what is required to meet the "ref level @LP@20hz", then to plunge to 10hz, a quadrupling of that displacement, and a commensurate elevation of power,...it's staggering
