Morgan Hill, CA (April 18, 2006) — Expanding their most popular subwoofer line, Velodyne Acoustics, Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer of powered subwoofers for home-theater and consumer audio, today announced the addition of the SPL-1500R to the SPL-R Series. The SPL-1500R was created to meet the demand for powerful, dynamic, accurate bass in newer homes with architecture featuring high ceilings and large rooms that flow from one into another.
With the addition of the SPL-1500R, the SPL-R Series is now comprised of four models: the SPL-800R, SPL-1000R, SPL-1200R and now the SPL-1500R. Like all the SPL-R models, the SPL-1500R features a 2000 watt dynamic and 1000 watt RMS Class D switching amplifier. However, with the SPL-1500R’s 15″ long throw driver (12.7″ piston diameter), it boasts a frequency response of 20 — 120 Hz (+/- 3 dB). All SPL-R subwoofers are sealed designs, ensuring accuracy, low distortion, and maximum output from the smallest possible cabinet.
The SPL-R Series features a one-touch, six-band Auto-EQ feature and comes complete with its own microphone. The series is DSP (Digital Signal Processor) controlled and features a remote control with four customized presets for movies, jazz/classical, rock/R&B or games enabling a user to adjust the sub with one touch of a button.
The SPL-1500R will be available in May in either a black pica or cherry finish. The suggested retail price is $2,099.
