World's Most Powerful Subwoofer

Oh my…..  Noggin, can we get this hooked up to our car? 

_graphics_RWimage1.jpgComing soon to a 1986 Monte Carlo down your street at 3 a.m. is the TRW 17 subwoofer. This isn’t your grandma's subwoofer. Hell, this doesn’t even look like a subwoofer, but it is. Normal subwoofers pulsate a concave paper cone while also compressing air inside of a box and pushing it out through a small opening. The metal fans create an enormous cone of air essentially turning your room into the subwoofer box. This is capable of getting frequencies down to the 1Hz range, this is the same range you may associate with jet engines and nuclear explosions. Traditional subwoofers get 20Hz at best. This isn’t available to the public yet, but the predicted price will be around the $12,900 range.
