Every once in a while, a water based flak shot comes in FULL volume through the audio chain. Its loud enough to damage your ears if you are using headphones or a powerful sound system turned up for the normal sounds.

My sound settings are mimimal, 44.1, audio enhancements on,
16 channels, surround speakers.

Anybody got a fix for this besides inserting your own stereo audio limiter into the signal path?

I jumped a foot off my seat the first time I heard it.

I'm in full agreement. Can you submit a bug report on this?

I had my sound on kinda low when the KABOOM! hit and blew me outta my chair. We were playing a BOB map with lots of ships firing their guns, but were pretty far away. My subwoofer just went offscale high for about 1 second. This happened probably three times over an hour.

Or is there some other tweak to "fix" this?

Well, searching around, this appears to be a common problem not fixable by settings, etc. I guess it wouldn't hurt to send in an official bug report on it though I think that 1C is already aware of the problem.

Happened to me over and over in the moutains map while near a mountain lake. At that point, it was happening very often.

Ok..I thought that was what that horendous boom was..I dont mind it that much though except when you get the rapid firing ones that go BOOMBOOMBOOMBOOMBOOM...I think its a YAK or p39 flinging heavy lead at me...
