Petra Industries Adds Chrysalis Acoustics

National wholesale distributor will offer manufacturer's powered subs for home theater and consumer audio.

Edmond, OK — Petra Industries, a national wholesale distributor of consumer electronics, custom installation products, mobile audio/video accessories, and appliance connection supplies, has added Chrysalis Acoustics, a Velodyne company, to its inventory.

Our partnership with Velodyne is a unique opportunity, said Tate Morgan, Petra executive vice president. Because Velodyne recognized Petra for its exceptional customer service and business practices, theyve opened a rare opportunity for us to work with them in distribution. Were pleased to be distributing their new Chrysalis brand.

Petras inventory of Chrysalis products includes three subwoofer series — the Photon, BassMatrix, and Starfire. Each series consists of two models. The Photon-8 and Photon-10 feature Class D amplifiers with 2000 watts of dynamic power. The DSP-controlled BassMatrix-10 and BassMatrix-12 includes a remote control to customize listening preferences with a choice of four presets — Movies, R&B/Rock, Jazz/Classical, or Games. The Starfire-10 and Starefire-12 are stylish, affordable subwoofers that deliver deep, powerful bass. These products can currently be found at and can also be seen in Petras spring 2008 catalog, which enters circulation in May.

Distribution is a key element in the success of the Chrysalis line and so careful selection of the best distributors to meet our needs is crucial, said Douglas Smith, Velodyne director of sales, North America. We are very pleased to add Petra to our list of select distributors for Chrysalis and believe they will be a tremendous asset in establishing this brand.
