Sounds of the County Fair

David Sommerstein prepared this audio montage from the midway of the St. Lawrence County fair in Gouverneur.  Go to full article

World's Loudest Car Stereo

This weekend, two of the North Country's own are in Nashville competing for the distinction of building the world's loudest car stereo at the dB Drag Racing World Finals. The sport has nothing to do with racing, or with music, for that matter. The goal is basically to turn a car into one big resonating audio bomb. Chris Smutz and Rick Smith both work at Northern Music & Video in Potsdam. Last winter they stripped down an old Chevy Astro van, leaving only the engine, dashboard, windshield, roof and doors intact. The rest is subwoofers, batteries, and a resonating chamber, all scientifically arranged to make a low, loud blast. David Sommerstein visited Chris and Rick earlier this week as rain pattered on the roof of their workshop in Hannawa Falls.  Go to full article
