I know where you are coming from, MilCop. If you are boondocking and your nearest neighbor is no where close, those open gennies are fine.

But just FYI, that is 69db at 20' for that DuroMax. Who knows what it would be like at the muffler. Ouch!

Most places we are at the kids yelling and screaming are drowning out that measured 69 db at the 20 feet. 10 other generators are also running some lower in noise, some higher.

Someone always has a boom box cranked listening to some techno or rap crap way above the 69dbs.

But definately the worst drowning out of the generator would be at a NASCAR track with 700HP plus cars running the track.

Quiet comes at a price. To me it is well worth it. It all depends on where you camp and what you can tolerate for noise. The difference between 49 decibels and 69 decibels is huge. I have been down both paths and there is really no comparison.

Loudness of normal adult human voice is about 70 db at three feet according to

What is decibel (dB)? definition and meaning

can't locate what a group of noisy adults or kids would be listening to that stereo during daytime hours but...
