Velodyne DD-1812 Subwoofer - October 25th, 2008
It is easy to say that a subwoofer has no equal, but in the case of the DD 1812 Signature Edition it’s true. With 6.000 watts of power, two drivers and dual DSP control, it holds the record for the most powerful subwoofer on earth.
The Velodyne DD 1812 can easily grab your attention when it wants to, in any size home cinema installation. It actually does that very well, without any distortion. It can easily show off its raw power and sonic presence, by playing back any soundtrack with absolute accuracy and finesse. Dedicated home cinema systems will easily accommodate a subwoofer that size behind the acoustically transparent screen, where all the front speakers are housed.
Velodyne DD 1812 will recreate the power and force you feel in your stomach along with the speed and tightness you get from the snap of a kick drum. This subwoofer belongs in hi-end home cinema installations, where clean playback and reference levels are required. Velodyne’s patented software and the included microphone will allow the subwoofer to adapt to the main speakers and the room. That will optimise performance for any position in the home cinema room, and takes audio calibration to an unprecedented level.
In every conceivable way, the Velodyne DD 1812 is a masterpiece of sonic engineering. A subwoofer worth looking at, if only the best is good enough.
