Higher tension = Harder to make "bang" sound ?
Is it true that with higher string tension, the harder it is to make the "Bang" sound ? What tension is good to produce the "Bang" sound ?

you just need a strong forearm and triceps

With strong forearm and triceps, will 25lbs be enough for me to generate the "Bang" sound ?

What's with the obsession with string tension and big bang sounds? Practice your skills and smash speed, the sound will come naturally.

Agreed, technique wil get you the noise and gameplay

you'll get the Bang sound when you smash/clear at the sweetspot.
One more thing, bigger bang doesn't mean stronger smash (at least in my experience)

his name is Speed#1 yet he's asking about Sound :P

When you strike a denser material the pitch of the sound is more solid and of higher pitch. The same with string tension, as the higher the tension the more "dense" will the striking sound be. However, this assumes you have the wrist speed to take advantage of it.

this is basically like a guitar string, the higher the tension the higher the frequency.
higher frequency > more energy to produce(in theory), so for higher tension you have to swing harder(in theory) and hit the relatively smaller sweet spot

i've read somewhere about putting tape at the bottom of the string to produce the bang sound... never tried it myself...
in theory the lower the noise means energy is wasted... i.e conservation of energy kinetic energy from racket = shuttle's kinetic energy + wasted energy (heat and sound)
in badminton i think the relationship between wasted and kinetic energy increases together, so louder would probably mean faster, but not by a significant amount...
i think very loud bang = a lot of wasted energy without the speed increase to justify it...

Just a thought: If the intention is to "scare" your opponents, how about screaming/grunting like Sharipova or Monica Seles when you smash. That should at least distract your opponents if not confuse them

anyway it'll b cool for people watching, makes u look like a better player for watching purposes anyway, it's like watching MS and WS, MS is more enjoyable to me, *bang > can the other guy block it*. playing this sport for enjoyment right, if u feel a louder sound makes you feel good then u should go for it...

Volume is mostly down to how hard you hit.
Frequency depends on the string thickness and tension.
For a "boom" you want relatively thick strings, at low tension.
Higher tension and thinner strings give more of a "crack".
Plastic shuttles always sound rubbish
