Here is information about decibel levels and perceived volume change. Here’s the quick read info, with supporting documentation below.
- 3dB = twice the power
- 6dB = twice the amplitude
- ~10dB = twice the perceived volume
- Adding up two 12dB noise sources will get you, on average, 15dB (which will not sound twice as loud)
