Velodyne SPL-1200 Series II Subwoofer Review

Velodyne SPL-1200 Ultra review


Velodyne's sporty subwoofer knows how to dominate a room

Slick design and finish ; Useful auto calibration feature ; Tight, powerful bass

Velodyne SPL-1200 Series II


Some subs are more equal than others

Bias aside, the Velodyne did what you expect a Velodyne to do. Few do it quite so well - but then not everybody is able to make the claim of being better, or maybe just a better equal than the rest.

Velodyne SPL-1200R DSP Subwoofer

Product Specifications

The Small-Plays-Loud (SPL) Series II subwoofers share a patented Energy Recovery System (ERS) 1000 watt RMS/2000 watt dynamic power digital switching amplifier. With their compact size and single front firing driver design, the SPL Series II subwoofers are easily hidden in a corner or built into a cabinet. Velodynes exclusive distortion limiting Dynamic Driver Control System assures linear cone movement, and controls the drivers' frequency and distortion characteristics. This allows the SPL Series II subwoofers to play loud yet keep the bass very clean, tight and accurate.
