MQB-1 MiniQuake - Tactile Transducer


Breaking in your new MQB-1
Due to the grease inside the piston of the MQB-1, the unit needs to run for some time to get warm and spread the grease - this is important for a new unit to give the best output.
If this is an MQB-1 that has not been used for a while the grease can dry up a bit and the unit just needs some time to warm up and make the grease more fluid.

For new units we recommend running a 30 HZ test tone to the MQB-1 and running it until the unit is warm to the touch. We recommend using a tone generator to make the 30 HZ tone. You can find an online version here:

We do not recommend using a movie or music to break in your unit, as the duty cycle of the lower frequency in these types of media is not constant enough for the MQB-1 to become warm inside a small timeframe.

The power amplifier should be set at a medium volume at the start (around 150W) and can be increased if needed (the volume setting depends on the input volume and the output of a given amp). You should see an output increase from the MQB-1 in a matter of minutes.

Power that will shake your senses.
With only one moving part the MQB1 is maintenance free. The chassis is a large heat sink made ​​of cast aluminum, making it capable of extremely high performance.



 How exactly does a tactile transducer work?
A tactile transducer or "bass shaker" is a device constructed according to the principle that subsonic bass frequencies can be felt as well as they can be heard. A tactile transducer transmits the low frequency vibrations into the object it is mounted to.

A tactile transducer will usually be mounted on a couch / chair, vibrations are transferred from there to the body. This is tactile sound. Tactile transducers can supplement and sometimes replace traditional subwoofers. In situations where the environment dictates using headphones, a tactile transducer can provide the bass and impact, free of nuisance to the surroundings.

Home theater and music applications
A tactile transducer will get its signal from the LFE output is also used by traditional subwoofers. This signal is amplified by an amplifier which drives the tactile transducer. It articulates the low frequencies effect and is very powerful and precise. The tactile transducer easily integrates with your existing subwoofer, complimenting it in the lowest frequencies.

For gaming applications
Tactile transducers are an explosive way to generate massive amounts of vibration, which brings you right into the game world. Installation of an Earthquake tactile device on your gaming chair will give you an incredible interactive experience.



With massive percussion power and Earthquake’s patented 3D Motion™ technology, the shakers bring user immersion to a new level.

With impact energy far beyond any consumer shaker, the audio enthusiast will experience unprecedented tactile response.




Tactile operating environmental requirements:

  • 5 to 45 dgc operating temperature.
  • Humidity 90+ non-condensing.
  • The presence of aerosolized salt will degrade the unit at an increased rate.
  • Atmosphere should be free of alkaline and acidic gasses.
  • Particulates like sawdust or sand in the air can ingress into the reciprocating system causing failure.
