University of Hawaii recreates earthquake – here’s how!

Filed under: Uncategorized — bassment @ 4:05 pm

so Bruce Thigpen and his crew at Eminent Technology have been working on and off with several research instituitions on several applications of his sub-sonic TRW woofers, and none of them for audio/entertainment.

University of Hawaii used the TRW as a mobile earthquake sonics generator – in effect an earthquake in a box used to test the sensitivity of their remote earthquake sensors. Attached is a PDF of their findings, which states that the TRW generated subsonic waves could be ‘felt’ more than 3 miles away!

You ready for one or two of these in your theatre?
