Velodyne Celebrates 25th Anniversary

By |


This year marks the 25th anniversary of Velodyne Acoustics. In celebration of its 25th anniversary, Velodyne is introducing four new series of subwoofers at CEDIA 2008. CEDIA will be held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver on September 4 -7th, 2008. The Optimum Series, DEQ-R Series, Impact Series and SC-600 Series will all be on display at the show.

Velodyne was founded in 1983 by David Hall, an engineer who developed a prototype of the first accelerometer-based servo technology suitable for loudspeakers and went on to receive his first patent in 1984 for the world's first high gain servo-controlled subwoofer lowering distortion to below 1%. Since that time, Velodyne has received numerous patents with the most recent issued for the SC-IW (In-Wall) subwoofer technology.

Velodyne has introduced over 100 products in the past 25 years from the original ULD Series to the Digital Drive 1812 Signature Edition, a two-way powered subwoofer featuring one 18-inch and one 12-inch carbon fiber driver with 2500 watts of RMS power and 6000 watts peak.

"It's quite exciting to reach this milestone and to have 25 years of innovation behind us," said Bruce Hall, president of Velodyne. "Velodyne subwoofers have always epitomized class and we look forward to an exciting future creating exceptional bass performance and gearing up for another 25 years of excellence."

More than a million Velodyne subwoofers have been sold worldwide over the past 25 years to U.S. and Canadian independent specialist retailers, custom integration specialists, value-added distributors, and regional and national chains. Outside North America, Velodyne subwoofers are distributed globally through a network of over 60 distributors.
