The acoustic properties of brick aren't very good unless they are sourced from Baltimore.

I dunno, "whats that saying?... Ambitious but rubbish?" It would definetly be intersting to see how that thing sounds.

That might be taking it a little bit TOO far though. HiFi does kind of consume my life... But how my stuff looks is also important to me... Apparently. Its not to that guy..

sound travels much faster and more efficiently in water than air... ;\) Of course, The transfer of sound from water to air.. Not so much \:\) An underwater theater perhaps?

I think you should try is Scott. With an avatar like Beaker, its bound to involve a boom and some flames somewhere along the line. Don't forget to video it though.
