Increase 'Guitar Amp' Loudness - with the same watts!!!

Posted by Eric Robinson on July 18, 2012 at 9:30 AM

Hi guys - I learned this info about a year ago, put it to work & I'm enjoying the results.

 

Most people believe that you measure the Loudness of a Guitar Amp off of Watts. Basically - a solid state amp with 100 watts, will be Louder than a solid state amp with 80 watts.  This kind of thinking has plagued my brain my entire life, until last year.

I have found that the Watts, is only 1 component in the equation. The Main part is actually the Speaker. More Specifically - the SPL of the Speaker. The SPL measures the dB (decibel) Rating. Loudness Volume is measured in dB's. The more Decibels that your Speaker can deliver, the LOUDER your Guitar Amplifier will be.

An *Awesome* thing about this is, it only takes an increase of 3 dB's to Double the Volume. With watts - it takes 10x the watts to double.

So - Let's say you have a Speaker in a 112 Amp that has a 90 dB Rating -And- you wanted to Triple the Volume Output of your Guitar Amp.

 

--If you were to change the Speaker with a Speaker that had a 99 dB Rated Speaker, you would be able to Triple the Volume Output of the Guitar Amp. This is a Great Way of getting a Much LOUDER Guitar Amp, without having to spend TONS of Money.
