Loving this thread. I have an interest in this tech and have built a 180mm pump to just see how it works.

So I wanted to throw this into the mix...The speed of sound is a function of the density of the medium through which it passes. In this case, as the density decreases towards a vacuum the speed of sound must tend to zero. We all remember the quote "in space, no one can hear you scream".

Good work, soundiceuk
