The Sound Level Of Your External and Internal Sounds !!!

Have you ever thought of what will be the best sound level for both your internal and your external sounds??

From my personal observation the birds prefer to cluster in an area where the internal sound is the loudest.

This strange phenomena have something to do with their desire to stay at a place that they feel safe and peaceful. It seem that those baby sound made by those internal tweeters were their preferred place to be at.

So if you are smart you can from today uses this new finding to your advantage.

Wire your internal sound tweeters with more then one wire for different zones to allow you to populate your BH in accordance to your preferred choices.

But what level of sound is the best?
So far no one have ever talk about this unique requirement.

If the sound is too low they will move to the highest sound level. However it the sound is too load they will find it too disturbing until they are not able to communicate with each other.

What about the external sound level?

Too loud will actually shoo those birds away and too low the area of coverage is too little thus gives very little effectiveness.

My recent findings about the best sound level to be used are as follows:

If u already have few birds staying in the bh you can try to set the sound level similar with their sound or if not you can use a sound meter to check the sound level emitted from your tweeters carefully.
The best volume level for your internal sound should be around 40 decibels.
As for the external sound it should be around 60 decibels but not more than 80 decibels.

Place the sound meter about 3 meters (9 to 10 feet) away from the tweeter and record the decibel readings.
When you carry out the tests make sure the other sound is off.

I hope this new information are useful and have a good day with your swiftlet farming activities……..

    Hi. Do you know what is the ideal decibel level for indoors if there are no birds at all? Thanks.

      I think I have mention about the sound level on my last post, it’s should made no different in setting the sound level whether the bh is still empty or been occupied.

      Just as I have mention in the blog it shoud be no more than 40dcb, it should be loud enough but not too loud for the birds to hear from the entrance hole. Just advise it will be better to have 2 separate player one for morning till dusk which will be played at 40dcb and one for night till dawn and can be set around 25dcb.
