With a reputation for building high-power home theater amplifiers, it’s not as widely known that Earthquake Sound also manufactures a variety of marine, outdoor and speaker products.

One of the company’s latest products is the THOR in-wall subwoofer. Earthquake says this subwoofer can be used to reproduce music and movies as part of a traditional stereo speaker array and multichannel home theater systems. The company says the subwoofer is easy to install and that electronics professionals can employ the subwoofer in new construction homes or in retrofit, existing home environments. Internally the sub incorporates Earthquake’s Shallow Woofer System (SWS) driver and Symmetrically Loaded Audio Passive System (SLAPS) that helps to augment the unit’s low-frequency extension.

Earthquake adds the unit’s outer appearance includes the choice of a standard metal mesh grille or a customized cloth grille. The company supports the subwoofer with a choice of external amplification products to drive the subwoofer’s levels as low as 20Hz with high SPLs.
