NPR's Scott Simon talks to Wayne Harris, the man behind DB drag racing, an extreme audio sport in which contestants try to make their car stereos deafeningly loud. "DB" stands for "decibel." Microphones, not human ears, are inside the cars when the competition starts. The car with the loudest stereo system wins.
