  • [Question] Omnimover audio

    Question time! Always wondered how dose the omnimover system get its audio? Each buggy has its own pair of speakers and they all play audio at the same point on the track, how is this achieved? Forgive my lack of technical terms.

    I'm speculating that either 1) every Doombuggy has its own set of channels and these isolated channels are fed via either isolated cables or assigned an IP via fiber optic from a server and is kept track off site, OR 2) every Doombuggy has all the audio stored on-board, just like the Space Mountain trains, and is just kept in sync by a timecode and cues.

    I am putting my money on the latter.

      ... and then they run the system backwards at night to untangle the cables

      So going back in time to 1969 there would be a tape loop in each buggy? thats the only thing I can think of, but i can't find anything confirming it.

        There are a set of cables that run under the omnimovers and each car has a pickup on them. Each zone has muliple sound loops that run and depending on the car it picks up the loop. Atleast thats the way it was in the 60's and the 70's.

          It depends on which one you mean, the old ones are the way bearride said the new ones like Indy are on board audio and Toy Story Mania is a lot more complicated.
