What ? ? ?
Could you please repeat that?
Seriously, my sons have learned the need to carry earplugs with
them--even to the garage/basement jam session!
They get it...and the best thing we did in that regard was tour the
Churchill Falls Hydro-electric Generating Station in 2010--they gave us
each a really nice set of earplugs because of occupational safety laws.
While it was loud, it wasn't rock-band loud. Of course, they are looking
at 8-hour exposure for employees. But it was hard to communicate with
the guide in the generator hall (5500 MW in 11 turbines). All four of us
wore them at the ManOwaR concerts in Cleveland two years ago...and what
was cool was everything sounded right--the DAS sound system was not
clipping--it was just LOUD!
