Maute 2006). 6), noise exposure can also be calculated in Pa2 h. The noise dosis B for a period T can be found from equ. 40: T (40) n B =  pA (t) dt with sound pressure level pA (A-weighted) 0 Applying the equal-energy-hypothesis (EEH), a 100% of the weekly (noise or other sound) dose will be absorbed after a person has been exposed to sound at a level of 85 dB[A] for 40 h. The same dose will be consumed at 95 dB[A] after 4 h, at 98 dB[A] after 2 h, and at 101 dB[A] after only one hour. This concept implies that a single visit per week to a discotheque for 4 hours where the average SPL on the dance floor typically is at or above 100 dB[A] already leads to a critical “overdose”.

Several models of loudness sensation and perception are based on the concept of the critical band (CB; see Moore 1995, Hartmann 1998, Schneider & Tsatsishvili 2011 [this volume]), which can be viewed as a form of the auditory filter (AF) on the level of the cochlear partition (CP). Since the CP (including the basilar membrane, BM; see Pickles 2008) in humans is about 32 mm long (from base to apex if stretched along one dimension, x), one can assume that elongation is maximum for certain frequencies at certain places.

Experimental investigation of sound pressure levels in a music club To study possible effects of the music examples 1 – 5 described above on listeners visiting a music club discotheque, an experiment was run in a club in Hamburg (wellknown for techno parties and similar events where various kinds of electronic dance music is presented by DJs). A. system installed in the club was used consisting of CD players, mixing desk, preamps, power amps, 31-bandequalizers, and four pairs of full-range loudspeaker cabinets mounted above the dance floor plus two large bass bins to the left and right of the dance floor containing subwoofers (see figure 13).
