Earthquake Sound Corporation released a miniature size powered speaker system that sounds like an orchestra while occupying only inches of space. The newly released IQ-52 powered speaker system allows the user to dock an iPod, iPhone, or other MP3 player on top of the speaker to provide an input signal. Dressed to kill, the IQ-52 is finished with high gloss piano lacquer available in black and white.
Acoustically, the IQ-52B/IQ-52W are equipped with a 5″ carbon fiber full range speaker system for accurate reproduction of the bandwidth. As for the high frequencies, the IQ-52 relies on a 1″ silk NEO speaker for better accuracy. This two-speaker system is vented through the back for more bass reflex and is powered by an Earthquake 200-Watt amplifier. Also, the newly released iQuake system can be expanded for 2.1 applications by adding a MiniMe series subwoofer (P8 or P8W).
IQ-52 systems come with a wireless remote control for ease of operation through out the home or office. The remote control allows the user to switch between three audio input sources as well as processing the video output of an iPod, iPhone or an MP3 player.
The system accepts and charges iPod and MP3 players. Most devices will easily doc on top and for those that do not, several connection devices are included to secure and dock assorted models. Other digital devices connect via the rear auxiliary input, while an S-Video out allows user to view videos from devices on external monitors. The iQuake system comes with an IR remote and is ready to rock as the device is docked.
“It is our first iPod speaker system and quite affordable, the iQuake speakers give listeners immense bang for their buck,” said Joseph Sahyoun, President of Earthquake Sound. “and because they fuse premium components, carbon fiber speakers, high quality piano lacquer, a small footprint and the convenience of a remote control, this system design should be in a class of its own,” he added.
The iQuake line includes two models which are available in high gloss piano black or white lacquer. Models include: IQ-52W (white) and IQ-52B (black).
