But to get an idea what it can be used for you also need to understand your Metering system.

Hope that helps.

The relation would be apparent, if we'd know the used type of metering.

-10dB RMS can be louder than 0dBFS peak maximum (where the RMS level can be -14dB).


So of we assume that the -10dB are the average loudness level, and 0dBFS are the maximum peak - then we know "why" this is the case.

Else, it's just a guessing game.
