Hi guys, my friend wants to make his A5 as loud as possible. I know the Red Hot powertube is said to make it louder, but will any metal ptube do the trick or does it have to be that one? Anything else he can do? I already suggested a barrel with minimal porting.

Rumor has it you can use part of a plastic pop bottle to increase volume. Supposedly it helps focus the sound forward.

step 1) Get a physicist.
step 2) ask physicist to find out the exact wave-length of the sound coming out of the A5
step 3) get a non ported barrel with a long tip which opens up which is the same length as the constructive interference wave length ( when the sound spreads apart rather then coming back together)

step 4) Enjoy the loudest possible marker ever made.

using a physicist you should be able to reach anywhere between 120 to 130 decibels

You want a Loud A5, if you really want loud, you will loose some efficiency.

Metal Power-Tube.

OpsGear Dishka.

Saw off your stock barrel to just long enough to install the Dishka.

Get a Spring Kit, a harder spring as that short of a barrel will kill your velocity.

Get Ear Plugs.

Don't shoot near someones head.

I have a Flatline with the Air America Intimidator. Sounds like a 20 gauge shotgun.
But not a 12. Not that loud.

My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.

There was a UK guy on here who put a car exhaust end cap loudener onto an A5 barrel, I highlighted the UK forums to him and he has 'found' scenario paintball here.

Cool, thanks guys. I will pass along the info. Yeah, not really sure why he wants something so loud... But he is also really into the SAW kit so.... Kinda makes sense. Not my taste, personally.

My reason for making a loud gun was simple.

It has some intimidation among newer players but the biggest reason was to paint a target on myself. A dishka gives a very distinct sound, especially if being used in auto and burst fire. As soon as you start shooting, everyone knows exactly where you are.

Why is this a good thing? Well, if your playing as a gunner, your making yourself stand out even more. A good gunner is a prime target for an opposing force. If you can make some noise and tell everyone where your at, you can make a good distraction.

Having used a Dishka for years, even though I am used to hearing it, its a struggle to not look to see where that person is shooting from. Used right, you can draw a lot of attention to yourself allowing your team to have an easier time flanking.
