Velodyne In-Wall Subwoofer Named CEA Mark of Excellence Finalist

Morgan Hill, CA (February 28, 2007) — Velodyne’s new patent-pending in-wall subwoofer, the SC-IW, was named a finalist in the 2007 CEA TechHome Mark of Excellence Awards. The SC-IW was nominated in the Best Speakers category. Winners will be announced at the Mark of Excellence Awards Dinner on March 9, 2007 during the 8th annual Electronic House Expo (EHX) Spring 2007 held in Orlando, Florida.

“We are pleased that the Velodyne SC-IW subwoofer has been named a finalist in these prestigious awards,” said Bruce Hall, president of Velodyne. “This product and the rest of the SubContractor Series were created specifically for the fast-growing installation market. We designed the SC-IW to be an easy-to-install in-wall subwoofer that delivers reference quality bass with minimal wall vibration, and can blend perfectly with any room decor.”

CEA’s Mark of Excellence Awards recognizes the finest achievements in projects, products and services in the custom electronics industry. Each awards category has a four-member judging team comprised of systems integrators, manufacturers, members of the trade press or industry consultants.

About the SC-IW
The SC-IW is an in-wall subwoofer that fits flush in a standard 2″ x 4″ wall, shows less than 5″ high of grill area, and delivers reference quality bass performance. The SC-IW is the ideal solution for installations that demand an easy-to-install subwoofer with an unobtrusive design that won’t compete with a room’s decor, yet delivers deep, accurate and visceral bass performance with minimal wall vibration.

The SC-IW subwoofer can be used for either new construction or retro-fit installations. It features a unique two-piece cabinet design with separate driver and back box enclosures. The innovative, vertically firing T-shaped driver uses a quad spider design using a patent-pending “drive shaft,” a neodymium motor structure and a ½” thick composite drive surface. These enhancements enable an extremely long throw driver sporting more then one inch peak-to-peak travel while exhibiting exponentially less wall vibration than traditional in-wall subwoofers that fire in and out.

The SC-IW includes both a 14-inch high standard grill for easy installation and servicing and a sub-five inch high grill for the absolute minimum of visible grill area. Both grills can be painted to match the room’s decor, and feature a 90&#186 scoop that enables the vertically firing woofer to project bass into the room.

The SC-IW is part of the SubContractor series of subwoofers from Velodyne. The SC series consists of the SC-8, SC-10, SC-12, SC-15, and SC-IF/IC (in-floor/in-ceiling) subwoofers, and SC-1250 amplifier.
