(2) 15" subwoofers being fed by 80,000 watts of power getting energy from a series of 23 batteries and over 100 feet of ought-gauge wire. It's difficult to get over 175 decibels from a vehicle. That is over 10 times the sound pressure that a jet engine on a 747 produces and is almost equal to the thrust under the space shuttle during liftoff. Notice that the windshield is bolted down with over 200 screws to prevent it from exploding. The doors are sealed with (5) 1 1/2" bolts to keep them from blowing off. Gotta love hobbies!!
