      I would be curious to see how they set up the speakers. Did they use delay or something? I would imagine the coverage would be weird with a wide and short stack.
      i want to walk around to see what the coverage and sound quality is like...

        I was at STS-1, 9 miles away on the space center grounds. When the Shuttle rolled and aimed its engines our way, the concussive nature of the sound was otherworldly. Getting a chest massage from nearly 10 miles away from those massive engines was a feeling I'll never forget.

          The Saturn V's were several times louder! At Coco Beach, it FELT like a magnitude 5.5-ish earthquake. Most viewers there without excellent ear protection barfed. The CBS camera crew blew their cookies live, in color.

            August 27,1883, Krakatoa produced 172db @ 100 mile distance; pressure waves circled the globe three to four times in each direction.
            The British ship Norham Castle was 40 miles from Krakatoa at the time of the explosion. The ship’s captain wrote in his log, “So violent are the explosions that the ear-drums of over half my crew have been shattered.

            My guess was that ( coverage concerns ) was sacrificed in favor of raw SPL.

                Sydney, Krakatoa is one of three events that stopped Big Ben. Krakatoa also broke glassware (and windows) in Boston. It was the most powerful explosion since man has been on Earth.

                  ​The Tunguska event was very substantial too, but far less famous, almost unknown.

                    Duh, I forget about it myself. "Super events" of nature are so passing it seems. Hurricane Carla (circa 1963) got into Nebraska before she ran out of gas. The tornado that destroyed Joplin, MO was just barely an F-4, but the one that destroyed Moore, OK the first time was an F-5+ (303 MPH+ winds) but with a very narrow and short touch-down area.
