You can use these to see if you gain/lost dB, even if they wont go up as loud as your system. Simply block off the mic, to muffle what it recieves, so it stays below it's limit..

You wont know your true dB, but it'll help with tuning/adjusting for maximum SPL.

Yelling directly into it, I think 115 dB is probably about right. Kind of like the difference between hitting 150 dB inside the port of a sub, and 150 dB at the dashboard that's just 3 feet away, etc.

Go yell as loud as you can right into someones ear... It'll hurt, and you'll probably get bitchslapped. :-)

120 dB is a generally accepted number (at least to people who arent used to it) for the point where sound gets painful. Yelling directly into someones ear hurts more than just a little (again - I'm speaking 'in general'). :-)

So I have no doubts at all you yelled at 115 dB directly into a mic.
