In which case the correct formula are: 10log(Pout/Pin) for power giving 3dBm increase for a doubled sound pressure level or 10dBm for a ten fold increase. Translating that to a voltage gain into a load to achieve that sound pressure level gain you use: 20log(Vout/Vin) giving 6dB increase for a doubling of voltage and 20dB for a ten-fold increase.
