About Earthquake Sound Corporation
For over 28 years, Earthquake Sound has been producing a variety of high quality audio products that have
impressed audiophile communities around the world. It all started in 1984 when Joseph Sahyoun, a music freak and
Aerospace Engineer unhappy with the existing loud speaker technology and performance, decided to put his
advance engineering knowledge to use. He pushed technological boundaries to the limit to create the kind of
subwoofer he could live with. Earthquake quickly created a name for itself in the car audio industry and became well
known for its powerful subwoofers and amplifiers. In 1997, using his existing expertise in the audio industry, Joseph
Sahyoun expanded his company to home audio production.
Earthquake Sound has since evolved into a leader in the home audio industry, producing not only subwoofers and
amplifiers but surround speakers and tactile transducers as well. Engineered by audiophiles for audiophiles,
Earthquake Sound audio products are meticulously crafted to reproduce each and every single note perfectly,
bringing your home theater experience to life. With true dedication and full attention to details, Earthquake Sound
engineers continuously develop new and better products to meet customers’ needs and go beyond their
expectations.
From mobile audio to prosound and home audio, Earthquake Sound has been selected as the winner of many
prestigious awards based on sound quality, performance, value and features. CEA and numerous publications have
awarded Earthquake Sound with over a dozen design and engineering awards. Additionally, Earthquake Sound has
been granted many design patents by the USPO for revolutionary audio designs that have changed the sound of the
audio industry.
Headquartered in a 60,000 square foot facility in Hayward, California USA, Earthquake Sound currently exports to
over 60 countries worldwide. In 2010, Earthquake Sound expanded its export operations by opening a European
warehouse in Denmark. This accomplishment was recognized by the US Department of Commerce who honored
Earthquake Sound with an Export Achievement award at the 2011 Consumer Electronic Show. Just recently, the US
Department of Commerce presented Earthquake Sound with another Export Achievement award for expanding its
export operations in China.

thank you for choosing the Earthquake MiniMe P8V2/P8WV2 subwoofer as a key component of your audiophile
system.
The MiniMe P8V2/P8WV2 subwoofer utilizes an advanced digital class “D” amplifier, an 8” premium long throw driver
and an 8” passive radiator with patented SLAPS (Symmetrically Loaded Audio Passive System) Technology. With a
ported design and piano gloss enclosure, the MiniMe P8V2/P8WV2 subwoofer delivers phenomenal bass.
Designed in the USA, the MiniMe P8V2/P8WV2 subwoofer meets and exceeds all industry standards of performance
and quality. With uncompromised “World Class” performance and superior technology, the MiniMe P8V2/P8WV2
subwoofer embodies both power and elegance.
What Makes a MiniMe?
Digital Class “D” Amplifier
SLAPS (Symetrically Loaded Audio
Passive System)
The MiniMe P8V2/P8WV2
amplifier utilizes the
advanced class “D” circuitry
with over 90% efficiency,
allowing it to continuously
perform without getting hot.
The 320-Watt peak power
amplifier is fully equipped
with 50 - 160Hz frequency
adjustment control, 0 - 180°
phase adjustment, low level RCA input, auto signal
sensing, as well as high level speaker inputs and
outputs.
Earthquake’s own patented
SLAPS passive radiator
technology dramatically
increases the subwoofer’s
efficiency and capability for
ultra low frequency
reproduction. The unique
design of the SLAPS employs
dual (identical) suspensions,
allowing the passive driver to move the same amount
of air in either direction. Coupled with the active
driver, the SLAPS enables the sub to deliver louder
bass without using more power from the amplifier.
Premium Long Throw Drivers
Luxurious Piano Gloss Cabinet
The active driver installed in
every MiniMe P8V2/P8WV2 is
specifically designed for
accurate reproduction of bass
and sub-bass frequencies.
The deep luxurious piano lacquer begins with a
thorough sanding and priming, followed by multiple
applications of black or white lacquer with additional
fine sanding between each layer, and finished with a
smooth, high gloss clear coat.
Built with TCT (Turbine Cooled
Transducer) Technology,
stitched tensile leads, antiwobble cone construction and reinforced dust cap,
the MiniMe P8V2/P8WV2 driver effortlessly produces
phenomenal bass with extremely low distortion while
staying cool the entire time.
When it comes to elegance and style, the MiniMe
P8V2/P8WV2 delivers.

Placing Your Subwoofer(s)
You often hear the term “subwoofers are nondirectional.” This is not true. It is harder to choose
subwoofer placement when low frequencies are
crossed. The wider the room, the more directional the
subwoofer. The easiest solution is to use two (2)
subwoofers, feed a mono signal to both and place
them in the front, one on the left and another on the
right.
While having two (2) subs is better than one, the
MONO signal that drives those subwoofers keeps
them from projecting the three dimensional images in
the sub-harmonics. Using two (2) subwoofers allows
you to cross the subs up to 150Hz sound quality,
imaging and staging. In some applications, you might
have small front speakers or planar speakers. The
two-front-subwoofer system is an excellent solution
to planar speakers’ low frequency response early roll
off from 150Hz on down. When placing these
subwoofers in a close proximity to the stereo satellite,
the subs will enhance low frequency extension. It will
be better to have a stereo subwoofer to help in the
lower bass notes and their placement.
Suppose you have only one (1) subwoofer in the
room and it is placed on the right side of the room. If a
bass guitar player was standing on the left side of the
stage and played an EE note (42Hz), then the sub will
also respond to that from the right side of the room
and completely destroy the stage.
You will see illustrations showing the two (2) different
suggested setups. In each of them, note the
breakaway and the image separation represented by
the black and gray arrows.
Placing the subwoofer in the corner of the room will
produce a more boomy effect, often preferred for
movies and sound tracks. For a music application,
place the subwoofer as shown above or against the
front wall, about a third of the room width.
Dual Subwoofer Setup with Mono
Signal
This is a BETTER setup. In a dual subwoofer setup,
the subharmonic frequencies (black arrow) always
move towards the middle of the room while the lows,
mids and highs follow the action (gray arrow).
The black arrows represent the
subharmonic frequencies.
The gray arrows represent the lows,
mids and highs as they follow the
action.
The best response is achieved when the
subharmonic frequencies are dynamically
synchronized with the rest or the audio system, the
black and gray arrows are identical.
Single Subwoofer Setup
This is a GOOD setup. The subharmonic frequencies
(black arrow) always move towards the sub in the
single sub setup while the lows, mids and highs (gray
arrow) follow the action.
Specifications are subject to change without notice.
Notice the breakaway and image separation is less in
this setup than the single subwoofer setup.

Connecting Your Subwoofer(s)
Low Level Setup - Single Sub
PRE OUT (SINGLE)
back of typical
processor/receiver
This is the best way to drive an audio signal into the
MiniMe P8V2/P8WV2. Today, all signal processors
(5.1/6.1 and more advanced ones) come equipped
with built-in pre-amplifier outputs (RCA) that include a
subwoofer output. Generally, the SUB PRE OUT is in
mono format. Connect the SUB PRE OUT from the
processor/receiver to the MiniMe P8V2/P8WV2’s LOW
LEVEL INPUT using a “Y” RCA cable.
FRONT
SURROUND SUR. BACK

CENTER
We strongly recommend that you use the best
available RCA connectors and cables. High quality
cables are normally triple shielded and the
connectors are gold plated with forceful grasping.
When using this connection, the MiniMe P8V2/P8WV2
only receives bass signals from the source.
Therefore, the crossover frequency should be set at
max value.
Low Level Setup - Dual Sub
For a more realistic sound stage and greater theater
experience, we suggest having two (2) subwoofers
and running them in stereo.
Using a “Y” RCA cable, connect the SUB PRE OUT 1
of the receiver to the LOW LEVEL INPUT of the left
side MiniMe P8V2/P8WV2.
NOTE:
DO NOT USE HIGH LEVEL AND LOW
LEVEL INPUTS AT THE SAME TIME
Using another “Y” RCA cable, connect the SUB PRE
OUT 1 of the receiver to the LOW LEVEL INPUT of
the right side MiniMe P8V2/P8WV2.
In case the subwoofers become out of phase with the
main front speakers, adjust the phase shift to correct
the problem. Note that maximum bass is only
achieved when the sub is in phase with the speakers
in your system.

Adjusting the controls
There are two main methods for adjusting the level,
crossover frequency and phase of the Earthquake
MiniMe P8V2/P8WV2 to match a system:
Use the following charts to record more desirable
data from test results.
?
Method 1 - Typical
By listening and making adjustments to suit your
preference.
?
Method 2 - Laboratory
By measuring the output and adjusting for a flat
frequency response.
Satisfactory results can be achieved if you make the
adjustments based simply on listening. This is
Earthquake’s preferred method as it allows the
system to be voiced based on what sounds the best,
whereas laboratory-flat frequency response can
often be clinical and less than exciting.
The following procedures are for those who prefer a
more methodical and scientific approach. You will
need a test CD with low-frequency warble tones and
an SPL meter.
Step 1.
Disconnect the subwoofer and run the main speaker
with a tone in its passband (80-100Hz). Measure the
level.
Step 2.
Disconnect the main speaker and reconnect the
subwoofer. Set the subwoofer to its highest crossover
frequency. Set the VOLUME of the subwoofer to give
the same sound pressure level with the same tone
you used in Step 1.
Step 3.
With both the subwoofer and the main speaker
connected, measure the level of the tones at the
available frequencies. Because the crossover is set
to high, you will have a peaked response. Adjust the
crossover FREQ control to get the smoothest
response.
Step 4.
Use the phase control to make the response even
smoother. It has its biggest effect at the crossover
frequency. You can iterate between the crossover
and the phase controls. Keep your hands off the
VOLUME control as it was correctly set in Step 2.
Step 5.
Listen to the subwoofer. Resist all temptation to turn
up the VOLUME control. Play something with really
deep bass to confirm that your subwoofer is working.
