Was 3000 by Wyle Laboratories

WAS 3000 loudest speaker in the worldThis incredible speaker can produce sound up a level of 165 dB. As obvious as it may sound, this speaker, according to the company who made it, was made primarily to make noise.

At an output of 30,000 Watts and 165dB, this speaker can be physically dangerous.

  • 148dB would make you experience uncomfortable and painful vibrations.
  • 150dB gives a compressing sensation similar to being deep under water.
  • 155dB the compression and expansion from vibration is felt to the core
  • 158dB creates a violent vibration sensation and you would be overcome with nausea.

It has a low frequency noise reduction technology which can be used in big sites like airports and it also has military use. It can be utilised to simulate battlefield scenarios.

Matterhorn by Danley Sound Labs

The Matterhorn is a quite incredible speaker. It’s made up of 40 drivers that help it to create a virtual wall of sound and it’s also able to produce 40,000 watts of amplification.

The speaker has made the most of 1,100 feet of 12 gauge cable and also 23 pounds of .003 welding wire. The whole speaker is powered by 40 amplifiers which are all capable of producing 1,000 watts each and it even has its own built-in generator. This, is some speaker.

9918Z by Digital Designs

This is a subwoofer and speaker combo. The 18 in subwoofer can reach up to 180.5 dB while there are four Stetsom KD amplifiers which are capable of producing a total of 26,000 watts power the speaker.

This is a pretty mean duo and this is also the kind of thing that could be fitted in the annoying neighbourhood kid’s car. Not ideal, hey?

The 60-inch Subwoofers

That’s right, you read that. 60-inch subwoofers. These were created by Richard Clark, David Navone and Mark Eldridge and they can produce a sound level equivalent to 188 dB. It’s like having more than 160 10-inch woofers put together.

The actual diameter of the woofer is a little bit of a white lie though. It’s actually 54 inches and there’s enough room for 6 inches of movement from peak to peak when they’re used at full capacity.

As we are soundproofing experts, we are concerned with preventing excessive noises from leaving or entering spaces such as classrooms, offices, public buildings, building sites or flats and apartments. If your neighbours seem to have one of these speakers aimed at your home, or your workplace is in need of some acoustic help, please get in touch with us on the phone – 01204 548400, or via our web form
