Ha, trust me, haven't played that loud for that long in a LONG time. I'm very careful with my ears. I was just trying to break a new, very high power speaker in. Truth is, at that volume, it doesn't even sound that good as the room is saturated with sound. Need some space to make that much volume sound good. It was ONLY to break the speaker in. Next time, I'm going to strap at least two pillows on the speaker. Don't want my ears ringing again.
