July 11, 2009: WOOF @ 108db

Daz, the world's loudest dog, barks his way into the Guinness World of Records.

Quote:
There is no need for a doorbell on Peter Lucken's bungalow.
When you live with a dog that barks louder than a pneumatic drill, then your pet does the job instead.


Quote:
Daz set the first record for a dog bark - there was no previous mark - at an event organised by Disney
to promote the DVD of Bolt, about a dog which thinks he has super-canine powers.
So he won a contest, but (there's always a but ) it included only a handful of the world dog population. Therefore
Daz shouldn't worry about over exposure and make all he can from his fame, as this record may not stand for long.

My dog can only bark at 107 db. I guess that makes him a sub-woofer.

Alright, now that was a decent pun. I can appriciate the creativity in that one.

Perhaps I am confused but that doesn't look like a bungalow to me.



Clodfobble  Saturday Jul 11 10:26 AM

For comparison, 107 decibels is roughly equal to standing 3 feet from a power mower. That's a loud ass dog.



Cloud  Saturday Jul 11 10:52 AM

loud and pretty! white german shepherd!



Flint  Saturday Jul 11 11:34 AM

Pooka LOL'd at ZenGum. And now, an 110db burp:




lumberjim  Saturday Jul 11 12:16 PM

that dog looks just like Pocky

Does to me. A bungalow is a ranch-style house i.e. one level (British dweillings don't usually have basements).

Another fact, an increase in 3 db is a doubling of output, so actually more than a little louder than a mower.

Also, gotta say, I'm still laughing at the subwoofer comment.

ZenGum is probably the funniest one here. Like, clever funny.

Er, that would be an increase of 10 db to make something twice as loud. You're talking about acoustic power, which doubles at 3 db increments, but does not translate to being heard as twice as loud by human ears.


Flint  Saturday Jul 11 04:57 PM

Acoustic power is measurably doubled at exactly 33.3~% intervals from human hearing? What an amazing coincidence.



Clodfobble  Saturday Jul 11 10:12 PM

That's what they say. To be honest, I don't know much about that area of things because it's live performance stuff. I don't care how much power something generates, I only care what it sounds like coming out of your computer or game system.



Tanalia  Monday Jul 13 09:47 PM

Not sure where you came up with the 33.3% figure -- decibels measure a ratio on a logarithmic scale:

db = 10 x log (A/B)

for a doubling of power, A/B=2, so

10 x log(2) = 3.010299

which is almost always rounded off, hence "3 db"



Clodfobble  Monday Jul 13 10:57 PM

Right, all of which is acoustic power, which is different than what it actually sounds like to your ears. The audible scale is logarithmic as well, but the doubling interval is 10 db.



Flint  Monday Jul 13 11:06 PM

Is the db used for audible hearing the same unit of measurement used for acoustic power? If so, then I maintain that it is an incredible coincidnce that an exact doubling of two unrelated attributes is acheived at intervals of roughly round numbers. That is, unless either the attributes or the unit of measurement has been rigged to produce this result.



Clodfobble  Monday Jul 13 11:24 PM

It's only cool insomuch as they're both logarithmic scales and logs can do some pretty funky stuff in math. They don't actually keep pace with each other or anything when you look at them. As for whether the even numbers are a coincidence, I'm pretty sure the unit was designed with the 10 db = doubled hearing level calculation in mind. I think the 3 dB being so close to a round number is the coincidence.
