Pressure wave in oil

I'm actually trying to compute a pressure wave in a box full of oil. This overpressure is due to a local boiling.
As a start, I try with a simple cube in a bigger one. The pressure source is on a face of the small cube and time dependent.
I'm using the Incompressible Navier-Stokes equation, but I'm wondering if it's the right equation... What about acoustics, certainly better adapted to wave propagation.
Thanks in advance.
