This doesn’t seem to fit in Music or Systems.
Today, I measured my noise floor. 25dB steady state, mid day, though I don’t think it’s all the much quieter at 3am. Regardless, I’m not up at 3am so it’s rather moot for me.
I listen ~70dB give or take 10dB much of the time. Structure is 1952 ‘stucco plaster/concrete’, raised oak wood floors. I have stand mount bamboo lam, ported 6" with alum ribbon tweets, and two sealed servo 12"s for the foundation.
What is a reasonably good ratio of ambient noise to preferred volume? or a good background noise level?
45dB sounds pretty darn good.
