Velodyne Digital Servo-10 Subwoofer

Velodyne introduced the Digital Servo-10 (DS-10) subwoofer, a compact, yet powerful subwoofer that features the same auto-EQ room management technology and comparable performance found in Velodyne's Digital Drive Plus series. Unlike similar sized subs that sound muddy and severely lack definition and clarity, Velodyne's exclusive digital accelerometer-based Digital High Gain Servo (HGS) technology lowers distortion at all frequencies and playback levels to less than 1%.

At the heart of the DS-10 is a cabinet with a furniture grade satin black finish; a massive 19.3 lb. magnet structure; a die-cast aluminum basket; a 1250 watt RMS (3000 watts Dynamic Power), 97% efficient, patented ERS Class-D amplifier; an ultra-stiff Kevlar–reinforced cone; a proprietary 3″ dual tandem multi-layer voice coil; and Velodyne's patented Digital High Gain Servo system that corrects cone movement almost 16,000 times a second to lower distortion to well below audible levels (less than 1%); all tuned, and all controlled by a high speed DSP processor.

The first major challenge to accurate subwoofer performance that the DS-10 solves is overcoming shockingly high levels of distortion (as much as 30%) that make most subwoofers muddy, boomy, and lacking in definition and clarity, especially at higher playback levels. Velodyne's exclusive digital accelerometer-based Digital High Gain Servo (HGS) technology lowers distortion at all frequencies and playback levels to less than 1%.

The Digital Servo-10 subwoofer features Velodyne's Digital Drive room management technology to overcome anomalies in typical subwoofer frequency response due to a room's shape, size and features. Just place the included microphone at the desired listening position and press the EQ button on the remote control and the Digital Servo-10 sub will correct for bass interactions caused by its position and your room itself using its eight bands of EQ.

Additionally, Velodyne's Digital Servo-10 subwoofer can be used in the manual mode using Velodyne's Digital Drive room management technology. This allows the subwoofer's in-room frequency response to be measured using a calibrated microphone and viewed graphically on any standard TV. The on-board 8-band digital graphic/parametric equalizer can be used to optimize the subwoofer's performance for any position in any room. The Digital Servo-10 also offers complete control over filter frequencies (both subsonic and low pass crossover), slopes, phase and polarity, which allows perfect matching of the subwoofer to any speakers in any environment.

The DS-10 is remote controlled and comes with factory presets for different music sources and movies. Presets can be changed to maximize the subwoofer for music, movies or games; switch to the neighbor-friendly “Night” mode; adjust the crossover; or simply change the volume and the front panel LED read-out responds to verify your action. Unlike its competitors, the Digital Servo-10 subwoofer comes complete with everything needed to set up and enjoy the subwoofer: a calibrated microphone, cables, a built-in signal generator and remote control.

Price and Availability
The Velodyne DS-10 subwoofer will be available September 2011 for $1,999.
