Default Low Bass = Jagged Cracks In The Ceiling

Hello All

Being a sub bass fanatic, I've finally destroyed my ceiling.

I have jagged cracks like branches all around the speakers.

I figured I'll need to plaster the ceiling and repaint.


At what frequency could cause cracks in the ceiling?

Did I hit the rooms resonant frequency?

Sounds like either too much vibration from the speaker or resonance of the ceiling (in whatever mode). If chunks aren't falling, patch won't do much good (I get the impression of hairline cracks) but if so then you'll need a bit of patchin'...

If you feel like redoing the whole ceiling, you might try two layers of sheet rock, or maybe even a layer or two of plywood, make it like a speaker box wall.

Before you patch this up, invite over some local teenagers to see the damage. You'll go down in history as The Coolest Dude Ever.

I think I was 16 when I actually managed to crack up a ceiling, four Rectilinear IIIs in a quad system, driven by strapped ST-70s. Dark Side of the Moon, naturally.
