We all know that subwoofers provide that low-end, and in many cases the added benefit of a tactile experience, yet time and time again the darn things are shoved off to the side or stashed in the corner. Earthquake Sound Corp. has introduced a solution that will allow users to get the full-on low-end experience with a sleek woofer that can be stashed under a sofa, behind it or even under the bed.
The CP-8, which is winner of a 2010 CES Innovation Award, is a self-powered 8-inch subwoofer that is equipped with an RCA input, high level input with crossed high level output. It is designed to match typical satellite or bookshelf speakers. It features a durable pressed paper cone, and the CP-8 has a power output of 300 Watts, 20Hz-180Hz, crossover frequency from 40Hz -130Hz and crossover slope of 12db per octave.
For those with a bit more room, and don't mind showing off their subs, Earthquake rocks out the room with the front firing, front-ported FF12 Subwoofer, which features a 400-watt built-in amplifier. This unit features the company's TCT (Turbine Cooled Transducer) Technology to increase efficiency and eliminate distortion. It offers a 12-inch deep bumped woofer, with a frequency response of 20Hz-125Hz.
