Morgan Hill, CA (March 21, 2008) — The MicroVee, an incredibly small (9″ cube) subwoofer that delivers deep, powerful bass, won the 2008 Mark of Excellence Award for Best Speaker — Subwoofers. The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) recognized the winners, presented by CEA’s TechHome Division, at an awards dinner in Orlando, Florida at the ninth annual Electronic House Expo (EHX) Spring 2008.
“Winning a Mark of Excellence Award for the MicroVee is truly an honor,” said Bruce Hall, president of Velodyne. “We continually strive to be the leading innovator in subwoofer design and technology and this award is a testament to the design efforts of our engineering team to produce a small subwoofer with outstanding bass performance.”
The MicroVee features the latest generation of Velodyne’s patented Energy Recovery System (ERS) Class D amplifier, supplying 2000 watts of dynamic power and 1000 watts of continuous RMS power. In addition, the MicroVee sports a three-driver system. The active 6.5″ driver incorporates an aluminum cone and dual-layer copper voice coil that assures linear travel as it handles the gigantic power delivered by the ERS amp. Two aluminum-cone passive 6.5″ drivers augment the active driver and are tuned to deliver the incredible bass output demanded by today’s home theaters. The MicroVee’s ribbed, extruded aluminum cabinet complements any room decor so as to please any interior decorator.
