Or 4 million watts.
fuzzy math right...
it's generally accepted that quadroupling wattage doubles output --- more or less.
+4x wattage = 6dB per sub x 2 = 12 db + at least 5dB from what we auditoned at Omaha to the max I've measured in my similar room in KC (limit of EP4000).
~120dB + ~12dB (for wattage increase) + ~5dB for headroom remaining on single EP4000.
that adds up to 137dB for a pair of Captivators absolutely and completely maxed out?
probably tooo fuzzy.
I do recognize that it is said humans often require more than an actual doubling of sound to recognize sound as doubling. Some do use the figure as high as 10dB for that magic number where we actually perceive sound as doubled - but the actual scientific number is 6dB right?
as to the zillion watt subwoofer - if you met KCNitro07 at the meet you'll know he is working on that design!
He told swarny and I ALL about it. hahah
