- TL;DR Summary
- There is a strange phenomenon that occurs which no one has adequately explained in my opinion.
The more firecrackers in a single group that we set off, the less noise is produced after a certain point. Or if they are fused to go off all at once, less db of sound occurs than if progressively lit from a few to many at the end.
Some have speculated that the heat is suppressing volume. I suspect destructive interference.
There is a massive and continuous fireball as fire crackers are exploding, generating thousands of shockwaves. Perhaps they are bouncing off each other and cancelling each other out like noise cancelling headphones,
