By in Music


Okay, so I get a little excessive when I listen to my music...

This is the stereo in my bedroom, a whopping 2000 watts of sound. Of course, I don't ever crank it up ALL the way, but yeah...I do play it loud.

I've just always been one of those that needs to FEEL the music...if the kick-drum doesn't cave your chest in when it hits, it isn't loud enough.

This set-up actually dims the room lights when the bass hits if I have it turned up more than one third of the way.

But I am used to loud music; this system also doubles as the monitor system for bands when I run live sound at music events.

And these are the small speakers. lol The full system looks more like this:


But I don't have room to use all of it here at the least, not if i want room for my bed.

But yeah...I like it L-O-U-D

I'm just the opposite. Growing up on country music, I prefer to hear the nuances and subtleties. And, having tinnitus, I can assure you that I do NOT want to "feel" it. I can't begin to explain to you how much a loud, thumping bass hurts my ear.

I have a fairly low threshold for loud noise. I like to keep my music to a moderate volume--and definitely not with the bass turned up.

Thank you for that interesting post. I used to listen to music quite often, but I rarely do anymore. I listen to NPR in the car and Soundscapes here at home. I just don't think that my brain can take it anymore.

I'm used to it pretty loud because I work with live bands a lot..and I need it loud because I am getting old and can't hear as good as I used to...probably because I like it loud lol

When I listen to my music I enjoy it loud too. My kids will come occasionally and want something. They make me jump when they bend down and tap me on the shoulder. I am so into it and listening to it L-O-U-D.

This is pretty awesome. And I agree, music should be loud (and movies too.) The pics definitely convey your message! Reminds me of the beginning of Back To the Future. lol
