In one episode of 'The Simpsons', Bart goes on a field trip to the police station and finds lots of electronic megaphones on the wall. He places them one behind the other, in effect 'daisy chaining' them. The output of one megaphone is fed into the input of the next, and so on down the chain. When he speaks into the first one, the sound is amplified so much that it shatters windows throughout the town. How plausible is this scenario? I assume that once the output capacity of one megaphone is exceeded, it would simply blow the speaker, thus ending the 'chain'. Would it work with non-electronic megaphones?
Re: Can you use multiple megaphones to create extremely loud sounds?
