Build A Bass Cannon, Pull The Trigger To Rock The Party

It's no dubstep gun, but this DIY "bass cannon" combines some speaker guts and an Airzooka for a portable party that rides on your shoulders — or at your hip, ready to fire some crazy beats any time the need arises.

To call it a "bass" cannon is kind of unfair. The Airzooka specifically accentuates bass — bass is omnidirectional — but the Airzooka body does channel all of the sound in one specific direction, meaning that even if the music is playing, it's playing much louder for anyone in the line of fire from the front opening. We should also note that for all the dubstep jokes here, this works just as well for any other type of music you love (or hate), so it can be just as effective a toy (or weapon) to blast the jams to your friends in the backyard, or give those noisy neighbours a taste of their own medicine.

    "The Airzooka specifically accentuates bass — bass is omnidirectional — but the Airzooka body does channel all of the sound in one specific direction, meaning " that there is very little bass coming out of it. Really Adam, read your own words and see how you contradict yourself.

    Saying that bass is omnidirectional is, well, not entirely correct.

    The lower a frequency the harder it become to be able to localise it, fewer things are able to absorb the energy. In turn, there is less of a difference between what the left and right ear hear, and we're unable to tell where the sound is coming from.

    You can certainly focus and direct the sound wave in a particular direction. Much like this thing is doing, and you'll be able to hear it from behind it, but that doesn't necessarily make it ominidirectional.

    Thats the super laymans version of the story.
