Yeah, but I think THX levels are for the hearing-impaired.
Yesterday I was listening very loudly to The Dark Knight Rises Ultimate Score Collection and the max SPL I got was 97.5 dBC (slow response). Any louder than that and I would have to cover my hears to prevent pain.
On the A-weighted scale (which cuts out bass below 500Hz), I got a max of 82.5 dBA. So the 97.5 dBC was for both speakers + subs and the 82.5 dBA was mainly just for the speakers.
I can't imagine 105 dBA for EACH speaker (instead of 82.5 dBA for ALL speakers) & 115 dBC (instead of 97.5 dBC) for subs.
So how many people actually listen to THX levels?
