Pro Audio stunt walls are a popular feature at car shows and other events; but they're also perfect for showcasing the capabilities of a high-performance audio system. A stunt wall is a large structure, typically consisting of multiple speakers and amplifiers, designed to produce extremely loud and high-quality sound. In this blog, we'll explain what's involved in picking the right speakers and amplifiers for a stunt wall, and what goes into the construction of the stunt wall itself.
When picking speakers and amplifiers for a stunt wall look for high-quality components that are capable of producing loud and accurate sound. In general, a stunt wall should consist of a combination of: midrange speakers, high-range speakers, midbass speakers, tweeters, and drivers. These components will provide full-range sound that reproduces frequencies perfectly.
To achieve maximum loudness and clarity it’s important to carefully match the speakers and amplifiers to each other. For example, a high-power amplifier can drive a low-sensitivity speaker to high volume levels, but the resulting sound may be distorted and lacking in detail. On the other hand, a low-power amplifier may not be able to drive a high-sensitivity speaker to high volume levels, resulting in a weak and underpowered sound. To achieve the best results, choose speakers and amplifiers that are well-matched in terms of power output, sensitivity, and impedance.
It's also important to use a high-quality digital signal processor (DSP) to control the audio signal. A DSP can help fine-tune the sound of the stunt wall, and provide a range of advanced features; such as crossovers, equalization, and time alignment. With a DSP, you can adjust the settings on the stunt wall to achieve optimal sound quality and loudness.
The fabrication of the stunt wall is also an important consideration. A well-designed stunt wall should be sturdy enough to hold a massive amount of weight. In addition to the power requirements of the speakers and amplifiers, it's important to consider the power requirements of the entire stunt wall system. A high-performance audio system consumes a significant amount of power, so ensure that the amplifiers and other components have a reliable source of power. In most cases, this will require a high-output alternator and a high-capacity battery to provide the power needed.
When selecting an alternator for a stunt wall system, choose one that is capable of delivering the necessary current to power the amplifiers and other components. A high-performance alternator should have a rating of at least 100 amps and be capable of producing a voltage of at least 14.4 volts. This ensures the alternator can provide the necessary power for the stunt wall, even when the system is being driven to high volume levels.
A high-capacity battery will be able to deliver the necessary current to power the amplifiers and other components, and provide a reserve of power that can be used during peak demand periods. In general, a high-capacity battery should have a rating of at least 1000 cold cranking amps, and it should be capable of providing a voltage of at least 12.8 volt.
Pro Audio stunt walls are a great way to showcase the capabilities of a high-performance audio system. By choosing the right speakers and amplifiers, using a high-quality DSP, and carefully designing and constructing the stunt wall, you can create a loud and impressive system that will impress audiences at car shows and other events. With the right power supply and battery, you can ensure that the stunt wall has the necessary power to deliver impressive sound levels, even at high volume levels.
