    Indeed it has. And then some. At the risk of making Barry look like Doctor Evil making a ransom demand, here are some $2 million loudspeakers:

    I wonder how much it costs, to build a pair of Kiss speakers? (Before profit etc)

    6KW of power spread over 'a mind-boggling array of forty 15” subwoofers and twenty-four 8” woofers. Summing these with the 210ft, 2” HF/midrange ribbon and the 13ft, 1” UHF ribbon'

    It isn't impossible if you open that up full chat

    I've had the best part of 120db in my little 'den'. Mind you, that needed around 40 watts .

TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    So with an extra 7,960 watts you could reach +143dB, though I doubt your speakers (or your hearing) would survive!

    Yes. I know loudness is on a steep curve. Can't remember if thats exponential, parabolic, tangental, sinusoidal or other though.

    I believe sound pressure levels of 200dB above the threshold of hearing can kill.

    Dunno. Never tried it!

    Wouldn't make one too popular with neighbours I should think.
