‘Festival on wheels’ touring Germany, packing eight Rockster speakers, subwoofers and a dance floor!
There’s nothing like making a big noise about your product, and German-based direct-sell speaker company Teufel is currently doing just that with its Thundertruck, a converted ex-military MAN eight-wheeler packing eight of its Rockster Bluetooth speakers – and more.
Now touring various venues in Germany, the Thundertruck is described as a ‘festival on wheels’, with the eight onboard Rocksters (left) – each weighing 30+kg and standing 76cm tall – backed up by two subwoofers.
Oh, and an onboard 13 sq m dance floor, four smoke machines, a lighting system using 30 LED units and two strobes, and two fridges (of course!)
It’s based on a 12.76 litre 320hp decommissioned military KAT I transport complete with eight-wheel drive – so handy for getting to tricky festival sites – and set up to start playing music as soon as it arrives, thanks to the ability of the Rockster speakers to run on their internal batteries, a 12V supply or mains.
As Teufel puts it, ‘The size of the Rockster excluded the use of a sports car: after much deliberation we decided on something a bit more rugged and suited to the outdoor use we had envisioned.’
