That cannon has been around for years, and is used on every FG for the Texans, FG or EP. And the reason I know that is cause it will scare the ever-living sh*t out of me and everyone else after extra points if we forget about it.

Well, if anyone needs one, we'll have several under our seat for crunch time in the 4th quarter.




As for these well you need to bring your own. Our pockets are emptied after buying all that $7.75 Miller Lite!

The problem I have with the Miller Lite can is the concession stands don't let you keep the screw on lid so the pennies keep falling out. So instead we had to buy a Dasani water bottle. The pennies still fit - I think. Might have used dimes. But you can always bang the Miller Lite can against the rails.

Yeah, it can be a problem keeping the pennies in.
I just stick my finger inside the bottle, and grip it between that finger and my thumb, then shake it like I'm ringing a bell. That method will usually keep the pennies inside up until my 8th or 9th beer.

Got me on Saturday, actually. After the game. I totally flinched. Hey, it's pre-season for the fans too. Gotta work out the kinks. I'll be ready come September ninth, though. No flinching.

I stomp the end of the bottle closed with my boot.

The beer bottle metal is louder than Dasani bottles. Especially if you keep bang it into a railing. You can also stuff napkins into the end of the bottle.

Don't do this obviously in front of a yellow shirt. And if someone beyotches about it, than stop. But if you are doing it when it is supposed to be loud, it will just blend right in.

Being an audio guy....I feel like I should share some really, really random knowledge with you folks.

Phase is defined as how far along its cycle a given waveform is. As we mentioned before, sound waves are periodic, or cyclical. From your trigonometry class back in high school, you may remember some evil sine-wave graphs where one period equalled 360 degrees. It is possible to have two identical sound waves of the same frequency and amplitude, but one is delayed slightly-we term this being "out of phase" with respect to each other. If you have one sound wave, it doesn't much matter how far along the sound wave is at a given instant. However, when you have multiple sound waves which are "out of phase," or delayed slightly with respect to one another, the waveforms will interact with each other in constructive and destructive ways. How much the waves interact, and at what frequencies they interact, depends on the waveforms involved, and how far out of phase they are-- two identical sine waves, 180 degrees out of phase with respect to each other, will cancel completely. Draw it on a piece of paper-- add one sine wave with a positive peak at 90 degrees and a negative peak at 270 degrees to another sine wave with a negative peak at 90 degrees and a positive peak at 270 degrees-- whaddya get? Nuttin'.

Conversely, if two similar waveforms, of same frequency, shape, and peak amplitude, are added, the resultant frequency is of the same frequency, phase, and shape, but has twice the original peak amplitude ((y = sin x ) + (y = sin x) = y = 2 sin x). We call this state where two waves are exactly the same in-phase.
Basically, we can all scream our heads off and it will get pretty rockin in Reliant. To be even louder, we just need to scream (or sing) the same note. As in the person next to you is singin the same note as the person next to them, and so on all the way around the stadium, 70,000+ strong. It would truly be deafeningly loud with half the effort.

And if anybody could ever find out the pitch at which the structure of Reliant Stadium naturally resonates....we could probably register the effect on a richter scale.

Default Re: A New Gameday Noise Maker?

Concrete structures often have standing waves or "nodes" at around 240Hz as well as around 400Hz. An "A4" on the chromatic scale is at 440Hz.

Here's a corny thing I did from 2010 about additive sound and getting loud for Peyton Manning:

"It’s exhausting work to yell for 15 seconds repeatedly. Luckily, the Texans offer beer to help with the stamina. When the time is right, give it all you’ve got. A simple “ahhhhhhhhhh” is sufficient. (You can ask an Aggie, they usually understand this technique.) No need for actual audible words. Words are usually short sounds and include those pesky consonants that rarely add volume. The tried and true “ahhhhhhhh” method creates a sustaining sound source that actually amplifies as it resonates throughout the stadium. The “ahhhhhhhh” sound as it leaves your mouth is one sound source. We’ll call this sound “ahh #1”. As “ahh#1” leaves your lungs and travels throughout the stadium it will encounter numerous walls, seat backs, concrete steps, beer bottles, hard hats etc.. When “ahh #1” hits these and many other surfaces it bounces off of them and continues on to a new trajectory toward Peyton’s inner ear.


We’ll call this reflective sound “ahh #2”. When you combine “ahh #1” with “ahh#2”, the sound of your voice is essentially doubled. That’s two voices screaming at Peyton Manning for the price of one ticket! What a bargain! Combine your double voice with 67,000 other double voices and Manning may start to struggle.

So Texans fans, start yelling early. Yell properly and yell at the appropriate times. Then we can all enjoy a discussion after the game about how satisfying it was to beat the Colts, unless you’re too hoarse from doing your part. In that case, we can just have a beer and smile.

See you on Sunday."

I, too, grew up in a rock recording environment. In select circumstances, we used to "liven" the sound by covering surfaces with aluminum foil. If we had an "Aluminum Foil Day" at the stadium (formally or not) where everyone brought a large sheet of cardboard covered with aluminum foil and hung it around your neck like chest armour, the sound that would normally be absorbed by clothing, would instead be bounced and ultimately be reflected back onto the field with ear-bleed intensity.
