The Boom Box or Ghetto Blaster as it is generally known, has become the scourge of the planet. Especially when you jack-up the power to more than 500 Watts, and put it in a car!

The POWER of those--Low Frequency--Thump, Thump, Thumps' is nothing short of Amazing!!!  Those waves go right through concrete; rattling windows, dishes, and the cat, as they pass. 

When this POWER is allowed to fall into the hands of Terrorists or Teenagers, life on this third planet from the sun, is forever changed!

It's a little like Loud Mufflers, sounds great to the owner; like Hell to the rest of us!

I always use to champion the idea, in the case of loud mufflers, that it be mandated that the tail pipes FIRST go through the driver's compartment, and then out--if necessary.  With the auto borne Boom Boxes, it does, and it doesn't seem to help. Not only do the little maggots seem unfazed, they actually like it. Sorry to say, putting it inside, closing the doors, and rolling up the windows doesn't help--it goes right through the car like 'crap through a goose!' 

The truth is, loud mufflers are welcome, compared to the mobile (and not so mobile) Boom Boxes! 

And just what Tunes(?) do these little shits play? Duh, tapes that do nothing more than Thump, Thump, Thump, hour upon endless hour--catchy.   --A Toe Tapping good time!

Some Random thoughts and info 
stimulated by email inquiries, etc.
The users/owners of these Boom Boxes have redefined ANNOYANCE, and deserve no more consideration than they give!

At this point in time, I'm only interested in disrupting the "music?" sufficient to make them turn it off; or forcing silence. 

If however, they persist, I will hope for a more permanent "result/fix."

Before I can use the Buster in "anger," I will need to optimize it--focus for maximum energy in a narrow beam; and learn how to aim it correctly.  This should take a few (free & dry) days.

Also, it needs to be pulsed for higher peak output; much less average power. 

=======
This project is no joke--not yet; however, if it doesn't work...

As for plans, until it works, I will hold off on that.
 
 
UPDATE!

=========  July 29, 2001 ==========

It WORKS!!

I've Silenced several BBs.

!-WARNING-!
.
There are two features that are important to know:

1)_ The voltages involved are LETHAL!!  (>3500 volts)

2)_ The Microwave radiation from an OPEN magnetron can be DANGEROUS (>1100 Watts) especially when focused!

Effects, short term and long term: cataracts, sterility, and cancer, to name a few!!
