Kodo - Ibuki

Since getting my 16-46PC+ subwoofers, I wanted to hear something that would really make good use of the new low extension. Taiko drums are one of the most impressive performances, and the use of their huge drum produces body-shaking bass. So I picked up Ibuki by Kodo, a famous Taiko group.

There are some very nice Taiko pieces on the Ibuki album. And Kodo does indeed have the low-frequencies I am looking for. But I fear to turn it up to true levels because that pushes the SPL higher than 85dB, which can cause permanent hearing damage. At safe listening levels, the floor does vibrate. Having heard Taiko drums up close before, I know that 95dB may be considered an accurate SPL level, at that distance.
