Somewhere in the following link is an exhaust level comparing several loud Porsche’s (RS, RSR, 928, etc.). They recorded and charted their results with what looks like a proper SPL (dB) meter.

However, some readers might attempt to use the volume control on their phone, laptop or desktop speaker(s) to understand what they’re trying to convey. Unfortunately, trying to replicate 100-126 dBs might cause most speaker cones to hemorrhage, and most will avoid equipment and/or ear damage and not understand the exhaust note as recorded.

For more accurate referencing, suggest reproducing using a proper sound system with one of several free/low cost dB/SPL meter apps. Then, one can more accurately quantify the perceived loudness of an exhaust system instead of relying on terms such as, “loud”, “sporty”, “racy”, “aggressive”, “knarly” and “*****in”.

Some may have to demo to the spouse for ultimate approval 😬
