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..

Personally, I am simply not that worried about vibrations.

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.

Depends on what day of the year (and which year) you're talking about, doesn't it?
