Velodyne Introduces New VRP Line of Powerful, Affordable Subwoofers


Morgan Hill, CA (June 16, 2004) — Velodyne Acoustics Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer of powered subwoofers for home-theater and consumer audio, introduces the Velodyne Rear Port (VRP) Series subwoofers. The VRP Series enhances low bass performance and output while maintaining musical accuracy by using a low noise, rear port design, all at an affordable price range.

The VRP Series consists of the VRP-1000 with a 10″ forward firing driver (8.2″ piston diameter) and the VRP-1200 with a 12″ forward firing driver (9.7″ piston diameter). Both are finished in black ash with an attractive hourglass-shaped front grille with high gloss black accents.

“Like all our products, VRP represents the best technology and performance in its class,” said Bruce Hall, president of Velodyne. “The VRP line provides deep, accurate bass without sacrificing any quality or output, at prices that anyone can afford.”

To power the VRP series, Velodyne uses bipolar-MOS technology amplifiers, capable of producing significant dynamic power from their reserve headroom. In addition, each amp incorporates two specialized protection circuits to insure their long-term durability. As compared to conventional IC amp designs, the VRP Series amplifiers are more reliable, have more punch and produce more power to accurately reproduce the most difficult bass information.

Both the VRP-1000 and VRP-1200 use drivers with massive 2.5-pound magnets and copper-wound voice coils in order to maximize the bass response of each subwoofer. Their high power handling capabilities and extended excursions allow these subwoofers to play louder and go lower than similarly priced products, as well as assuring extraordinary reliability.

The VRP Series subwoofers will be available for audition and purchase at Velodyne’s authorized dealer network July 1. The suggested retail pricing of the VRP Series ranges from $349 to $449.
