Seismic™ 110: Alpha Dog of Compact Industrial Design Subwoofers
"Admit it: The first thing that went through your head when you saw this diminutive little powerhouse was, ‘Ahwww, how cute.’ Right? With its sleek, curvilinear diecast monocoque exterior and its oversized paws tucked neatly underneath, one can’t help but look at this little fellow and wish it had a chin to scratch.
But, as my dad is fond of saying, ‘Frisk this puppy at the wrong time and you’re liable to draw back a nub.’ Despite its adorable looks, the Seismic 110 boasts one bodacious bark—and just as big a bite. In addition to its ultra-low-distortion split-coil driver design, the subwoofer also features an 850-watt RMS Ultra-Class-D amplifier, and the 10-inch woofer cone is capable of two full inches of travel, giving it an unbelievably deep voice for such a petite little frame.
Price: affordable. (Newspapers and chew toys not included.)"
– Dennis Burger, Home Entertainment
Design innovation for maximum performance from a minimal footprint! A true collaboration between industrial, mechanical, electronic and acoustic design. Unlike many subwoofers on the market, Seismic™ 110 has no off-the-shelf parts. A completely custom build, demonstrating how good it gets when form truly follows function!
