Morgan Hill, CA–Velodyne Acoustics and AV distributor AVAD have signed an expanded distribution agreement covering six subwoofer models. The agreement, which expands the terms of an existing contract between the companies, will make it easier for AVADs 9,000 dealers to purchase Velodyne subwoofers at each of AVADs 37 locations across the United States.
Velodyne said the expanded relationship with AVAD is a key step for increased exposure to AVADs dealers and the custom installation/systems integrator market. Previously, Velodyne subwoofers were sold through 13 of AVADs locations. AVAD will now carry the Velodyne MiniVee, MiniVee 10 and DLS-R Series consisting of the DLS-3500R, DLS-3750R, DLS-4000R and DLS-5000R subwoofers nationally.
We are thrilled to build on an already successful relationship with Velodyne, one of the most respected subwoofer companies in the world, said Bob Gartland, president of AVAD. The high-performance, low-distortion bass, competitive price and reliability of Velodyne subs make them a versatile solution for our dealers.
AVAD has been distributing Velodyne products since AVADs inception in 1998. In addition to product, AVAD will provide dealers with Velodyne product training, complete technical support and quick access to inventory.
We are very pleased to expand our relationship with AVAD, said Bruce Hall, president of Velodyne. AVADs established reputation, dealer-focused support and training have made for a valuable partnership. This agreement helps Velodyne extend our reach into the custom installation market and provide more dealers with access to Velodynes best-in-class subwoofers.
