Velodyne to Showcase New Digital Drive PLUS Subwoofers at Salon Son & Image 2011

Newest generation of acclaimed Digital Drive series makes its debut in Montreal

Velodyne, the world's leading manufacturer of powered subwoofers, has announced that the new Digital DrivePLUS Series subwoofers will be showcased in Room 1310 at Salon Son & Image 2011. The Montreal -based show, lasting from March 31st to April 1st, allows visitors to experience the best in audio brands, including Velodyne, all in one place and compare systems in optimal conditions.


“Our Digital Drive series has long been regarded as one of the best in bass reproduction, and the Digital Drive PLUS has taken the lineup to another level,” said Doug Smith, national sales manager for Velodyne. “As visitors to our exhibit at Salon Son & Image will get to experience, the Digital Drive PLUS series offers more low -distortion output, enhanced automated setup, amazing styling and many more new features.”


The Digital DrivePLUS is the next generation device stemming from Velodyne’s highly popular Digital Drive series. The DD+ produces the industry's lowest distortion bass and utilizes newly engineered drivers with twice the extension of their predecessors. Using Velodyne's patented digital high -gain servo technology and a Class D, patented Energy Recovery System (ERS) amplifier, delivering over 3000 watts of dynamic power, the DD+ produces under 0.5%, with a 4.5 to 6 dB upgrade in output from the previous Digital Drive Series.


Digital DrivePLUS offers multiple ways to manage bass performance with real -time feedback using Velodyne's proprietary room management software. One touch of Auto -EQ+ completely automates the seamless blend of subwoofer, system and room. Or it can be manually set up by connecting a laptop with the sub’s USB port, allowing the user to control eight fully parametric equalizers for smooth, even bass output. Crossovers, slopes, subsonic filters and phase can be adjusted for the primary settings as well as for the five presets while getting feedback in real -time. A third option to calibrate and fine -tune the subwoofer's response is to connect the DD+ to a TV screen. The sub even offers set up controls on the front panel including volume, crossover and Auto -EQ+ with instantaneous feedback shown on a front panel LED display.


All four models in the Digital DrivePLUS Series (DD -10+, DD -12+, DD -15+ and DD -18+) incorporate massive magnet structures, starting at 35 lbs, fiberglass and Rohacell sandwich cones and six -layer, custom wound voice coils for more output and better heat dissipation. All the DD+'s technology is wrapped in a stunning contoured cabinet with a choice of gloss ebony featuring an elegant cathedral grain, satin cherry or walnut finish.
