    Which G-Shock do YOU think has the loudest alarm/beep?

    Just wondering what everyone thinks. I remember back when i was in grade school in the 90's and the watches back then were really loud, loud enough to wake up my parents downstairs. It seems that as the years went by they've been skimpin on this feature which doesn't make any sense to me

    I got an AWG100 and it is WHIMPY.

    Anyways, go for it.

    all of the "classics" seem to have a pretty decent alarm

    my dw-6600 or 5600e is probably loudest out of my collection

    I can honestly say I have never used the alarm feature on any of my G-shocks. I would think the non-solar versions would have a louder alarm for some odd reason.
    Couple of watches here and there

    The DW5600E and the DW6600-1V have the loudest alarms out of all the G-Shock line of watches.
    I agree with you that Casio has reduced the loudness in a lot of their lcd watches from back in the 1980's and 1990's when back then the alarms were very loud. Another thing that has happened is that the beeping time that an alarm sounds has been reduced to ONLY 10 seconds on all the atomic solar G-Shocks. What good is hearing an alarm for only 10 seconds? The atomic solar Mudman is a very good example of this.

    it's not odd at all, they simply have more power (at least those with CRxxxx cells)

    right, its one of the best casio alarms of the newer models with a unique sound pattern, sadly it lasts only 10 seconds. also very good (for casio standards) is the alarm of the G-7900. not so unique as the G-7710 but loud and it lasts for 20 seconds.

    If you can't hear the alarm when you're asleep, try two G-shocks sync'd. If two's not enough, try three, and so on.
