I think its really unaccurate. Only way to see how accurate it is is to put it into someone's car you know a db reading of and compare. 72db sounds really low to me, considering my golf did 134db with 2 10" starsounds.

To put into perspective. Sound level DOUBLES for every 3 db's higher. So your Iphone is going to say my golf was 20times louder :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have that - well actually i have the APP on my N8 - as well as a Speedo APP and a Level and a lightsaber and the moon phases and a talking hamster - off topic....

The DB app on my phone is; well i'm not sure actually.... but try to gauge with someone who has actual figures and see how far off you are? :mrgreen:

That's definitely not right. iirc, when a person speaks normally, that's already 70db. I could be wrong
