How did Ark of the Covenant function?

How did Ark of the Covenant function? What happened when Moses or High Priests entered in the Holy of Holies of the Tabernacle?

Torah is pretty explicit about this. Let's take a look:
CLV Ex 25:22 I will keep appointment with you there, and I will speak with you above the propitiatory shelter from between the two cherubim which are over the coffer of the testimony of all which I am instructing you for the sons of Israel. 
CLV Num 7:89 Whenever Moses came into the tent of appointment to speak with Him then he would hear the voice of Yahweh speaking to him above the propitiatory shelter which was on the coffer of the testimony; it was from between the two cherubim that He spoke to him.
As you can see from these verses, the Ark of the Covenant was a radio of sorts that allowed us to communicate with God directly.

The Ark of the Covenant, more specifically, the Mercy Seat, served as a sound resonator of sorts that channeled God's voice down to earth.


As you can see, it was the Wings of the Cherubim (if I am correct) that produced the sound. Which is why I said that the Ark was like a sound resonator for the voice of God.
