Additional detection of sound?

As sound travels a lot slower than light, it would likely be sufficient to have an NTP-synced clock instead of a local GPS receiver.  But of course it never hurts to have it.
However, to have useful use of such a detection it needs more stations than the lightning detection system currently has.

Still, much of the basic principles would be the same, so maybe it could be done as an addition or as a second project within Blitzortung.org?

Application: location of the source of explosions, shootings, fireworks etc in a local area.
