Two Tiny Cubes That Makes Epic Bass
Earthquake Sound is proud to introduce the MiniMe P8 and MiniMe FF8 subwoofers. Taking up less than 1 cubic foot of space and weighing less than 17 pounds, the new MiniMe subs produce enough bass for either high-end home theaters or audiophile listening rooms.
These petite beasts deliver unreal bass from an extremely elegant compact design that is sure to fill any room with unbelievably large, loud, and low sound with their built-in Class “D’ amplifiers, one high power 8-inch active driver, and either a passive radiator style enclosure or a sealed front firing design.
Earthquake backs up its reputation for delivering high-performance products for any application—from two-channel systems to 5.1-channel systems and beyond—with the addition of the MiniMe subwoofers to its lines of speakers. Designed to integrate audiophile-quality bass response into almost any new or existing system, the MiniMes’ can take a system from anemic as a weakling to as powerful as an earthquake.
Contained in the MiniMe elegant black-lacquered box is a powerful amplifier, signal processing, an 8-inch driver, and an optional 8-inch SLAPS passive radiator. The owner to fit seamlessly into any home-audio system, audio/video system, or home-theater system can customize the sound of this miniature subwoofer. Its automatic features make it convenient as well as customizable.
User adjustments for consumer convenience include switching between 110 and 220 volts (60 and 50 Hz). For compatibility with other components, the MiniMe subs have both low-level RCA and high-level inputs. The frequency-adjustment range of the MiniMe subs is 50 to 160 Hz, phase is adjustable from 0 to 180 degrees, and the built-in high-cut filter can be set anywhere from 35 to 100 Hz.
The MiniMes’ have a sub-operation switch that makes it compatible with electronic components that have 5.1-channel filtering. In the “LFE” position, the frequency adjustment is bypassed so the subwoofer runs in full-range mode (from 20 to 2,000 Hz). In the “Sub” position, the MiniMe subwoofer reverts to the manual frequency adjustment, allowing the user to fine tune the bass for optimal customized sound.
Earthquake’s new MiniMe subs also have automatic features that make things easy for owners such as automatic standby mode and automatic signal-sensing on/off. LEDs indicate the operational status of the subwoofer.
The built-in high-efficiency Class-D digital amplifier is rated for 160 continuous watts of power, but it can deliver blasts of 320 watts of maximum output power. This makes it perfect for demanding passages such as earth-shaking blockbuster movie explosions and room-shaking orchestral crescendos.
The 8-inch active driver in the Mini subs is a newly designed long-throw model designed for the same premium quality as the other components of the subwoofer.
The output efficiency and frequency extension of the MiniMe is increased by the use of Earthquake’s patented SLAPS passive-radiator technology. Working with the 8-inch active driver, the 8-inch passive radiator moves as an absolute piston so this deceptively small subwoofer pumps out pure frequencies down to 25 Hz and beyond. Frequency range is rated as 27 to 160 Hz, and acoustic output is rated at more than 108 dB SPL (with room gain) from 25 to 90 Hz.
The MiniMes’ are dressed to impress with its exquisite multi-layer high-gloss piano-black lacquer finish that gives it a deep essence of elegant pearl. This tiny work of art is hand-finished by professionals who pride themselves on their craftsmanship. The MiniMe subs do not just have one, but several layers of lacquer that are carefully applied so the coats create a bond for a thicker and more robust finish. In addition, the coats of lacquer are drenched in several more layers of clear coat for a look that pleases every taste.
The new MiniMe P8 and FF8 miniature high-power subwoofers have a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $899.00.
