The Sound Tank Is An Assault On The Senses
An artist and musician designed the a new hybrid of sound technology to further expand on his research into creating certain types of aural stimuli.
The Sound Tank takes the phrase aural assault to a whole other level. Artist and musician Nik Nowak purchased a Japanese mini-dumper from an Internet auction in 2008. He dismantled it and rebuilt it from the ground up into a sleek, geometric hulking white behemoth. The body of the vehicle raises up vertically to better project its wall of sound. Nowak built the machine with consideration for specific acoustic parameters. The audio components are deliberately placed to maintain the desired frequencies. They are comprised of six 12-inch mid-range drivers, three 18-inch subwoofers and four tweeters.
