The Dubbed Out Festival Outdoor stage will be hosted by Slippers the Split.
“Slippers” is a custom-built VW Split Screen van that has been converted into a high-quality mobile sound system. The van was built by a company called Dubtricks, which specializes in creating custom VW camper vans and sound systems.
The VW Split Screen van is a classic design that was first introduced in the 1950s. It is a popular choice for custom builds due to its unique shape and vintage charm. Dubtricks started with a 1965 model and stripped it down to the bare metal before beginning the customization process.
The exterior of the van has been restored and customized with a custom paint job, lowered suspension, and retro-style wheels. The interior has been completely gutted and rebuilt with a custom sound system that includes top-of-the-line components.
The technical details of the sound system include:
– Two 18-inch subwoofers: These provide the low-end frequencies and are mounted in custom-built enclosures. – Four 12-inch mid-range drivers: These handle the mid-range frequencies and are also mounted in custom-built enclosures.
– Four high-frequency horns: These provide the high-end frequencies and are mounted on the roof of the van.
– A 10-channel mixer: This allows for precise control over the sound levels and EQ.
– Multiple amplifiers: These provide the power needed to drive the speakers and ensure high-quality sound. The sound system is controlled by a custom-built audio console that is mounted in the front of the van. It includes a mixing board, equalizers, and other audio processing equipment.
The whole unit is mounted on its own custom built platform.
Overall, Slippers is a one-of-a-kind sound system that combines vintage style with modern audio technology. It is a testament to the creativity and craftsmanship of Dubtricks and is sure to turn heads wherever it goes.
Obviously the Dubbed Out team is thrilled that Slippers the Split will be making an appearance at the Dubbed Out Festival as our new outdoor dance music stage.
