A Helicopter for a Subwoofer? You Bet.

Eminent Technology Helicopter SubwooferCheck out the world’s most amazing subwoofer...sans woofer.

Despite looking more like a helicopter than a speaker, this oddity can produce bass relatively flat down to ONE Hz. It looks like it drops off rapidly above 30Hz, so it’s definitely no good for mid-range, but it plays down to 1 Hz with only 150 watts input… seriously. They’re priced at ~13k right now, but if this technology becomes mainstream, hopefully it’ll be a lot cheaper in a few years.

Specifications from Eminent Technology: Amplifier Requirement: 150 watts @ 8 ohms Impedance: 8 ohms 0Hz - 40Hz Frequency Response: 1Hz – 30Hz +/- 4dB Suggested Crossover: 20Hz @ 18dB/octave Sensitivity 94dB 1 watt 1 meter @10Hz Maximum Acoustic Output: >115dB between 1 and 20Hz. Distortion: Typically 3% or less between 1 and 20Hz @90dB Warranty – 3 years parts and labor Patent Pending
