And no, you can't lick my frosting.
Wait, I am more confused that usual!! Foxfur said his wife Sweetpea registered for Farcebook, not Eplaya...I don't understand
AntiM: what flavor frosting are we missing out on..??..

After learning to shun the corner sound camps in favor of the deep playa MV party while dancing under the stars, I'm very nervous about that vibe being able to survive after this. If you're telling me that Robot Heart in deep playa.. with it's speakers facing completely opposite of the city must now stick to the 10 and 2 where it's already a giant clusterfuck.. then.. well.. that blows to say the least.
It will be interesting to see how this pans out..
I think it mean you have to be out in open Play beyond 10 & 2...that is a wide open place DEEP OPEN PLAYA but yes I agree with you on this concern.
Doesn't say they can't out on the deep playa, just not at the highest levels. Is that truly so awful?
And not playing the inner streets super-loud is just being cool with other burners. Is that so wrong?

1976 Guinness Book of World Records entry:
Loudest Pop Group
The amplification for The Who concert at Charlton Athletic Football Ground, London, England, May 31, 1976, provided by Tasco PA system, had a total power of 76,000 watts from eighty 800 W Crown DC 300 A amplifiers and twenty 600 W Phase Linear 200’s. The readings at 50 m (164 ft) from the front of the sound system were 120 decibels. Exposure to such noise levels is known to cause PSH — Permanent Shift of Hearing or partial deafness.
We are Robot Heart, a mobile sound camp, designed to freely roam the Playa, constantly exploring, enjoying, and breaking border constraints, all the while spinning mad beats on our 74,000 Watt sound system that will simply blow your human minds and leave you longing to curl up with our subwoofers.
Music and Mutant Vehicles:
The Dancetronauts, a space ship styled art car, will be supporting the live music and doing performances of their own. Starting at the burn time, this art car with over 100,000 watts of power will be spinning the rest of the night away turning S. 3rd street into a dance party while Lucy burns.
Level 3: Large Dance Club, Arena, Stadium (100db or more at 100ft or more)

It is pretty easy to make loud noise at 1000 Hz, but not so much at 30 Hz because of human sound perception.
Looking at the equal loudness contour (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equal-loudness_contour), it appears that if you want to have your bass keep up with the mids at 80 dB, your 30 Hz bass has to be playing at 110 dB. To get down to 20 Hz at the bottom of the human range you need 120 dB. Is this not a 10,000x jump in the required power?
So it seems like the use of 74,000W may be different depending on what you want that power for. If you really want strong bass, you need incredible power?
Also, does loudness (phon) or actual power (dB) cause hearing loss? In other words, is 120 dB at 30Hz equivalent to 120 dB at 1000Hz, or 80 dB at 1000Hz, or somewhere in between?
