The second version of the Speaker Wheel was created to make it more durable, larger and louder. Equipped with a powerful loudspeaker and electronics, this device is a heavy-duty metallic wheel combined with a PA system built with reinforced 6ft satellite dishes and a modified oil barrel. There are currently two wheels, the original one, and the (this) satellite-dish iteration, created individually to explore performances of noise. Additional iterations are neither planned nor discarded.
