It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

Most radios can do over 120dB's . . . only once.

Run power supply to radio from wall socket thru a switch. Throw switch. Voila 120dB!.

P.S. Wear ear and eye protection and pretest microphone because you'll only have one chance to sample this tone burst.

Let us know how it turns out.

Prepare your future. It wasn't the lack of stones that killed the stone age.

When he initially made this thread, there was a typo in the subject line.  It read I want my radio to hit 1140Db.  I was thinking he meant to say 140,  Then after reading it, I was not sure if he meant 140 or 114.  At that point I could only assume that he meant 1140.  By the time I posted, "That is going to take a whole lot of Diesel and Urea"   the mods had corrected the subject.   So in order to not look like an Idiot, I deleted my post.

HAHA! The cannon might get 140 but he radio hitting the wall maybe 20db...mostly by the guy next to the cannon as the metal shards come flying at his face!

thanks for the replies. im aware of the db chart i googled it and researched it before i posted this thread. yeah the reason why i want to hit 140 db is i never heard a radio that loud and i want to hear it from a distance not up front i like my gift of hearing. as for installation i do my own work and im 25 so if i deaf already i wouldnt want to hit 140db. so im going to change my speakers maybe go with a bigger amp throw 2 type x's or fi car audio subs in there i heard those are great. and when i tested the radio at 102 i did have hearing protection . the subs i have now you can feel the air moving from outside the truunk. my second question i was getting 102 in the trunk alone and inside the car i was getting 100db why is that.
