Goofs

The movie establishes that the symbiotes are hurt by loud sounds between 4000 and 6000 hertz, even though hertz are a measure of frequency, not volume. But it's not a mistake. For a sound to affect the symbiotes it has to be both in this specific frequency range, which apparently resonates with this life form, and loud enough to make this resonance harmful. In particular, higher frequencies would have no such effect regardless of the volume, and even sounds in the 4-6 KHz range would have minimal effect if they're not loud enough (otherwise Venom would be under constant pain, because such frequencies are quite common, well within human auditory range).
