Some years back many thousands of cars in our capital city, Perth, were dented by once-in-a- century hail.
One might expect sparks would be from the nearest point to the cage (ie about 8 inches = diameter of the steel sphere). However, sparks can't breakout from a smooth surface of this size unless there is a breakout point. By positioning one at the top of the sphere, they preferentially go up the 20 inches or so to the ceiling.
Now 20 inches is not huge but it is in proportion to the exclusion zone for the operator and equipment without the cage.
This is still loud and needs earmuffs if you are close. In actual use you would have powered speakers behind them to provide the backing music track that the sparks are played to.
I can sit between them so it becomes a compact installation that I can setup without help.
And the cages? Four dog cages that fold flat to the same dimension as one of the walls
