My NYC apartment is on 3rd Avenue, so it depends on whether there is a bus idling 11 floors below. If, not, I am around NC-30 (TEF25). OTOH, at the CT house, I run below NC-20!I live in NYC (East Harlem) next to a 24hr car wash so my ambient noise can be really high. But in the absence of someone going through the car wash with subs ablazing it is 54dB with no A/C and 61dB with.
How about you?
Jealous.My room is completely sound deadened so, my ambient noise floor is low. If fact it is so low that my SPL meter can't read it!
No doubt. I've found that the average SPL of a squirrel population is around 50db.Zero? Haha, is your 82-acre property also in space?
It might as well be...The silence is deafening sometimes..Zero? Haha, is your 82-acre property also in space?
Yeah. I got them sometimes. Another intrusion is the stream out back. If there was a lot of rain the night before, the torrent is noisy. If you ain't listening to music, it's pretty nice, though.We have cicada's here in summer, now THAT's deafening. :hush:
