    This may be a stab in the dark but (bare with me) is it possible to create a weapon of some kind which would emit or project a sound or vibration of perhaps 18 to the power of 12 decibels. However, instead of just emitting that sound alone it would focus the sound into a high intensity beam of sound.

    If this is possible please answer me this, what type of damage could this potentially cause, if any?

    Welcome to the forum.

    The decibel scale is already a base-10 logarithm, meaning each doubling of the energy equal to about 3 decibels increase.

    The Army research lab has examined several sound applications. While there's no doubt sonic weapons could be used for crowd control, there's no weapons of the type commonly deployed as yet.

    The weapon would be very large, need a huge generator to power it and the sound waves wouldn't travel very far to hurt others probably no more than a quarter mile if that far.
