20,000 Watt Speakers Made from Ice and Snow

at 10:48 am. Filed under Crazy Hacks, Funny Hacks, Insane Equipment, What Were They Thinking

These snow and ice speakers are not you everyday outdoor speakers. I am sure the 2007 Michigan Tech Winter Carnival had no shortage of good music with these things belting out the tunes.

“As part of a statewide snow sculpture competition, some Michigan Technological University students have added balance to the millennia of snow angel production–through the evils of rock.

System includes:

Member’s computer with optical out, s/pdif

Dual Behringer DCX2496 6-channel crossover/eq/etc. Fed by optical through: optical splitter -> optical/coax convertor -> standard unbalanced rca to xlr

9 Behringer EP2500’s, and 1 Crown XLS602. Something around 20,000 Watts total.

Front, per side
Highs: 8 Selenium 2″ dome compression drivers -> 1″ throat horns
Mids: 16 5″ sealed back MCM cone drivers (not horn loaded)
Midbass: 6 Selenium 15″s -> ~4′ deep snow horn with 4′-by-8′ mouth and 7′-by-2″ throat
Subbass(mono): 6 Electrovoice 18″s -> ~15′ deep snow horn with 15′-by-‘ft mouth and an 18″ throat

Back, per side
Highs: 3 Eminence 2″ dome compression drivers -> 1″ throat horns
Lows: 6 Selenium/EV 15″s (not horn loaded)

Amps -> Drivers
highs: Behrginer EP2500, stereo
mids: Beh-EP, stereo
midbass: two Beh-EP’s running bridged, one per side
subbass: three Beh-EP’s run bridged, one EP per pair of 18″s

highs: Crown XLS, stereo
lows: Beh-EP, stereo

Beyond that its just snow horns and about a 1/8 mile of wire.”

    Mafe? 😀

    Weird. Seems like it would be damaging to the speakers. Neat idea though…
