Dag,
I think when you get the EII outside and run the motor sound system it will sound much better.
In the workshop with all those brick walls you get a lot of distortion and at times it seemed to me that the echo or reverberation seemed to cancel out the good sound of the radial engine.

Sure is a kewl system. I am sure it will sound great at the field or in the driveway.

All those crew members with their hands on their ears were a great addition. Too bad they don't make headphone hearing protectors in that size. Emma sure had her ears covered well.

Have not tested it yet.

I am guessing it is going to be a bit wild as sound reflects much like light off of a surface. So my guess is it will all be bouncing around in there, but as long as some is directed out it should be cool........

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!

Dag,
You are going to run a quick test indoors with the new exhaust systems installed and the motor speaker system, so you have some idea what it will sound like?? Knowing you, you have already done it and we will see/ hear the results in a day or two.

Looks awesome.

Dag, I'm no where near the builder that you are but I know a little about speakers and audio. Try filling the space between the exhaust mounts and the speaker box, your low frequencies will increase and the output at the exhaust ports will increase.
