The Friends of Congress Square Park (our partner in organizing the outdoor
contra dances) has a cheap decibel reader that they use to measure the
sound about 25 feet in front of the speakers. They'll take an average
reading. We don't know about whether is A-weighted or C-weighted.

"*Sound*: At Congress Square Park, we shoot for 92 decibels."
Is this measurement made with a calibrated meter?
Right in front of a speaker?? 50' back from the stage?
A-weighted, Slow,? or? C-weighted, Fast?
At an outdoor dance, 50' back from the front of the stage, A-weighted,
I'm often happy with an average around 78~80db.
This equals around 90~92db near the front of the stage.
Thanks and good health,? Weogo Reed
