Re: RE: extremely lofi ideas for the poor noisemaker

I've done this to replicate earthquake sounds. Not so much the quake 
but everything in a house reacting to it. My house seems to have a "sweet 
spot" around 16 Hz.

Access to a servo-driven sub woofer helps. Put it in another room and dial 
subsonic tones from a tone generator (8-22 Hz capable) . Modulate to 
Windows love it. Sheetmetal filing cabinets  dance with fear. Not 
for apartment dwellers.
