Have you ever just wanted to carry “The Party” with you?
Let me guess, your first excuse, “My phone isn’t loud enough!”
orig-audio-rock-it-3-0-vibration-speaker-turn-anything-boxSecond excuse, “I can rarely find a place to plug in my speakers!”
OR if you’re tech savvy, you’ll most likely say this, “I LOVE my blue-tooth speaker but it doesn’t put out enough bass/it doesn’t play loud enough without distorting the sound, etc.”

What if I told you there is a solution to all your problems, ONE device, to “RULE THEM ALL!

Rock-It 3.0 claims you can turn ANYTHING into a Speaker Just, Plug It, Stick It, and ROCK it!

 

Check this nifty device out, all the way from Lou to YOU!

Unbox Therapy video:

 

OVERVIEW:

In this video, Lou of Unbox Therapy looks at multiple different items on which you can use this device. Quite obviously, for any audiophiles or anyone with an acute sense for auditory enjoyment, you would know that boxes will do much better than most any other item. Why do you think the old home theater speakers were mostly built as rectangular prisms, because that’s what produced the most sound! Guys AND girls stuff their trucks and cars with sound equipment, mounted in what? A BOX! Imagine that, they use these boxes for easy mounting and great sound production. Lou of course finds great joy in this, he has been looking at many different types of headphones, earpods, and blue-tooth speakers for years. This baby, the Rock-it 3.0 is the cream of the crop, and certainly lives up to its name by rocking out through quite a number of items.

The Rock-it 3.0 ACTUALLY premiered on a quite well known show…. SHARK TANK!

Because Science.

If you wanted to know the science behind why the boxes were the best fit, it goes a little something like this. CAUTION: SIMPLIFIED SCIENCE INCOMING
If you look at a generic cup like Lou used 2 minutes into the video


The cup has a small part (the base) and a large open top. If he had mounted the device on the base to start, it would have worked better on the glass.

Here’s why:

First: you need a propensity for vibration, if it will not vibrate, it will NOT carry sound. When something will not vibrate, it causes the sound that IS produced to bounce off of it, something we musicians call reverberation or as you might know it, “The Echo.” You must also know, that sound carries through air alone, so if the item you use doesn’t vibrate enough to produce a louder sound, then the air will carry that sound, it will be much quieter although than if the item HAD worked as a speaker, but will still reverberate within that item, thus the quieter sound.

Secondly: you need propensity for the sound to reverberate (previously mentioned), or bounce around inside your object. This creates a fuller sound depending on your item, with the cup, it creates a crisp, but still quieter sound, but with a box, you get a fuller more bass heavy sound.

Thirdly: you need propensity for expansion, if the sound has nowhere to go, it gets cut off, or “muted” by the object blocking it.
For example, the large bottle of Olde English that Lou used around 3 minutes into the video.


It does not cut off the sound or mute it completely, but you get no low end, all of the music you hear is crispy and brighter. This is because the bottle was capped, now if he had placed it on the bottom and the bottle was uncapped, the sound would have been lower and cleaner, but still come out somewhat “stuffy” because of the physical bottleneck. This bottleneck creates a closure that the sound and vibrations do NOT want, thus cutting off some of the lower end sounds that were amplified through the bottle, causing the sound to come out higher pitched like before.

Save your boxes!

Now, when Lou swaps to the boxes, he gets such a shock and a big cheesy grin on his face.
Iphone Box:


Larger Boxes:


The boxes work better than all the others, why, because the boxes have ALL THREE of the elements I mentioned, propensity for vibration, reverberation, and expansion.
* IMPORTANT NOTE * This is BY NO MEANS, perfect or exact science, this is speculation based on prior experience with musical instruments and amplifiers.

Take these thoughts with a grain of salt and carry the party with you!
