What is the best way to distribute noise from more than one source (I'm envisioning a system with many), within a dome, with the ground as its primary target, at optimal frequencies and volumes to create maximum vibrations on the ground?
Think, this picture - http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/acoustic/imgaco/foc3.gif - but with more than one source.
I'm assuming you would want the dome to be perfectly circular, and have the point at which the dome wall meets the ground at a slight incline (as opposed to vertical) so all the sound stays directed at the ground. Imagine a tennis ball which is cut in half, but was split just before the equator. You take the side that is smaller, and flip it over. Thats what I am imagining. I'm just judging from the above drawing that you would want the sound sources crammed as close as possible in the center of the dome, in as perfect as a circle as you could design it, and maybe directed so that they are all pointed to the center of their own, independent, equally sized areas (the dome being the total area of the surface that the sound is being pointed at). It seems like if you could cram all the sound into a point of singularity and put it at the center of the dome, and then release it somehow - that would be ideal (although that sounds pretty complicated). Not sure about frequencies and volumes.
