Velodyne Thumps With New Subwoofer Technology

The Optimum Series subwoofers from Velodyne Acoustics offer a new level of what the company calls “simplicity and ease-of-use” while still providing the ultimate bass performance.  With immediate visual feedback from the Optimum subs, in what we must say is a very nice contoured cabinet design, the user can easily and quickly balance the subwoofer and adjust for any source material.  And, the Optimum Series replaces the successful SPL-R Series and each model in the series is 3 dB louder than its predecessor. 

Users can make adjustments on their subwoofer using the included remote control with instantaneous feedback from the intuitive, interactive front panel display.  One push of the “EQ” button on the remote and the seven-band, Auto-EQ room bass correction system, using DSP technology, will quickly adjust the sub for the best bass performance, regardless of placement. Use the remote control to adjust the volume, turn on or off the front LED, adjust phase or limit output for late night listening and view the results on the front panel. The remote control also includes four one-touch listening presets for customized listening.  The mic-input jack is located on the front panel along with the power switch.

All three models in the Optimum Series (Optimum-8, Optimum-10 and Optimum-12) are powered by a Class D switching amplifier delivering 1200 watts RMS and 2400 watts dynamic power. The drivers incorporate light, stiff Kevlar-reinforced resin cones, massive 21 lb. magnet structures (on the Optimum-10 and Optimum-12), and 2.5” to 3” copper wound voice coils and vented pole pieces.  The contoured cabinet is available in either a high-gloss, black piano lacquer finish or real cherry veneer.
