Well, both :-)
Actually if it is dynamic range and an amp can do a dynamic range of
120dB or more but I turn it down so the loudest level is 60dB SPL at
my ear, the smallest level will be 60dB-120dB=... well, it will be
silent enough to be not to be heard. (*)
> It's really not hard to reach 120 dB SPL at close range. I own a bass
We are talking about music-production for the mainstream and PA, not
musicians amps. :-)
I haven't seen anyone firing his home equipment to have 120dB and
sitting 1m or less away from it...
> 120 dB dynamic range is an incredible amount, it corresponds roughly
120dB is the difference between just loud enough to be heard by your
ear (1dB) and the loudness when the bones in your ear bow to protect
it. At higher levels (>120dB) your ear aches but it will recover if
the noise isn't permanent. At least thats the definition I learned...
> And please remember folks, even 85 dB SPL can be enough to damage your
(*) At least if my physics aren't completely wrong...
Wenn man mit Raubkopien Bands wie Brosis oder Britney Spears wirklich
verhindern könnte, würde ich mir noch heute einen Stapel Brenner und
einen Sack Rohlinge kaufen.
