About Dub-Stuy’s Tower of Sound The Tower of Sound is Dub-Stuy’s own 15 kilowatt system, custom-built, engineered, and housed in Brooklyn. The combination of wood finish and exceptional dynamic range and accuracy at high volumes makes the Tower of Sound a system unlike any other in town, a true representative of sound system culture in the 21st century that has been used by the Red Bull Music Academy, Brooklyn Museum, and Afropunk festival. The Tower of Sound isn’t just about sheer sonic power, it’s also about community. Since 2012, the system has stood at the centre of an effort by Dub-Stuy to champion sound system culture in the United States, attracting artists and fans and helping to foster a new understanding and interest in a historically rich and vibrant culture.
To truly understand the Tower of Sound, you need to come experience it.
