Sound amplifiers

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I'm going to be buying my first RIF in a couple of weeks.

 

Playing at Billericay yesterday, somebody had a Firehawk that sounded AMAZING.

 

I'm therefore interested in a sound amplifier, but am wondering how well they work?

 

I'm looking at a G&G R8-l by the way.

They don't really work that much, but it's simply through the way the air moves over it as it leaves the barrel. Madbull are the only people that make them if I recall correctly - Element do one that looks the same and weighs a ton, but I don't think it's intended as an amplifier.

The Madbull one works quite well on my GBBr AKS74U, the end adjusts by loosening to increase the sound (hence the spring clip which locks it in place) but its not like it makes it HUGELY louder. Not tried on an AEG though.

Dytac do one too, it's fitted as standard to their "Invader Recon" models.

I've never really seen these amplifiers working all that well when I've played. How noticeable is the difference?

This is my question exactly!

Is the loud enough to be considered worthwhile?

G&G have started to sell the amplifier off their Firehawk gun which indoors makes for a head turning crack rather than a pop like a normal gun. Amps only work well for CQB or outdoors suppresion as the lack of walls to echo and funnel noise makes them not much louder.

The more noise the better! I like the idea of being able to change the sound output depending on the situation.

 

I might buy a cheap one first to make a decision regarding real investment later on.

Hated how loud my firehawk was In cqb, soon as I squeezed off a shot everyone honed in on me as I echoed through all the corridors. Swapped it out for a stubby silencer and I go a lot more under the radar and my shots blend in with everyone else's.

Stubby suppressor on patrol base you can unscrew the end and take out the 2 foam rings and it's the sound amplifier or you can keep them in and it takes the loud snap off the shots. Best of both worlds for 21 quid

Noveske KX3 Sound Hog ?

 

Have one on my SCAR.

 

Acts as a funnel to focus the sound forward.

 

You cant hear much difference from behind or the side, but the people youre shooting say its noticeable.

Is it actually a worth while difference ?

They don't actually amplify the sound to be any louder but they do Change the tone to be a little deeper. Certainly noticeably.

Is it enough to be worth while? Or shall I just shout and swear more lol?

I have the same one on my tippmann :D

 

No good for stealth, but excellent for keeping people's heads down lol

It does supress it as it would a real gun but it changes the tone of the shot

Not if you're expecting a big difference in sound, as others said it mainly changes the sound rather than a big volume boost. It is more noticable in indoor CQB than outdoors. But they look good on short barrel guns too! :-)
