How loud would a 97dB sensitivity speaker play music at 1000 watts?

Not bass. but I mean like music vocals highs midrange ect.

just a rough estimate dont need exact calculation or anything.

Would it be completely useless for a speaker to play that loud? even in an outdoor enviornment/party or anything?

    Your ear's drums could be damaged within a very short period  with such sound wave  loudness  if playing it in a close room.

    The only way to know is by setting it up and measuring the actual output. 

    That is mainly because speakers don't have perfectly linear power response.  


    In fact, a speaker is The Most fickle part of any audio system. 

    Almost everything else (amplifiers, tape decks, tuners, and even some phono cartridges) 

    came along fairly co-operatively as improvements were made in recordings. 

    Speakers have been much more difficult to tame effectivly.
