possible to make directional infrasound from a small device?

    Is it possible to produce infrasounds (in the 7 to 20 Hz
    range) with a small (coat pocket size) electronic device?
    For example, can a small speaker produce such low sounds?

    And if so, is it possible to use a reasonably small
    parabolic reflector to aim them?


    (I have a feeling the answer to both is no.)

    Follow your feeling.
     
  3. It might be possible if high power compression (shock) waves were
    directed at 7 per second. But not sinusoid.

  4. I think Bill Beatty at amasci.com has a lot on that topic IIRC

    Why screw around with sound? Just check with your friendly local
    neighborhood Jihadist, and learn to make IEDs.

    Good Luck!

  7. Ask your friends in the KOOK group, you KOOK bastard.
     
  8. Phased ultrasound arrays in air are quite do-able, and are in fact used
    in some types of non-lethal area denial weapons.

    BTW, air can support almost arbitrary pressures as long as they are not
    negative.

    Not square waves from a small multivibrator either,
    I guess?
     
  11. Probably, since they approximate shock waves and have high frequency
    components
