Not responding directly to this post (in deference to PFPG's wishes) but a general observation. The ads are the same volume all the time as the explosion that Arnie somehow managed to survive but much louder than the conversations he has with Sarah Connor.
So you turn your TV up so you know what they're mumbling and then when the ads come on you effectively have 5 straight minutes of explosions.
It's the same deal on the radio airwaves. You have more impact if you're just under redline all the time ... spots where the dynamic goes down will be lost to the listener in what is effectively a no holds barred battle of memes.
