Macroscopic Dark Matter (or Macros) are a general class of dark matter models with masses $\gtrsim M_{pl}$ (often parameterised in grams rather than GeV) and geometric cross sections $\sigma_\chi$. Due to their very low number density, the range of macro cross sections is relatively unconstrained by conventional DM detectors, and instead require novel detection methods with high exposure. Here we consider the constraining power of proposed high exposure acoustic neutrino experiments to macroscopic dark matter.
