Telling DB


How can you tell how much DB you system has?? Does it depend on the RMS? If it is how much DB for 1120 RMS??

You gotta go to a local shop or a local comp and get it metered. It doesn't really depend on your RMS.

You can also by a cheap meeter at radioshack... but its not as acurate as a TL, and they only go to like 130DB's.

There are to many factors that go into your system to tell how many db's youll hit by just your equipment. Find a local comp or a local shop that has a termlab meter and ask them how much to meter your system.

Your enclosure is probably going to be the biggest factor, and probably the cheapest component in your system ironically. (< amps, subs, speakers, HU, etc...)

There is no cut and dry formula to determine how loud your system will get.
