My neighbour has this as their car alarm.

It was so powerful that it left the men who operated it dazed and nauseated, even though they used ample hearing protection.

In Scotland I visited a lighthouse, which had nearby the strongest fog horn in Britain. The guide told us that standing in front of it while operating would cause the instant detachment of the retinas.
