The Velodyne DD+ produces low 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 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.
The EQ-MAX is available in 8-inch, 10-inch, 12-inch and 15-inch models.
