About the Velodyne MiniVee
Powerful 1,000-watt mini-subwoofer
Don't judge Velodyne's MiniVee by its size alone this tiny subwoofer dishes out accurate and suprisingly hard-hitting bass. Underneath its attractive cabinet, the MiniVee boasts an 8" woofer and a 1,000 watt amplifier. You'll enjoy deep, resonant lows from the thundering of horse hooves in your favorite Western flick, to the smooth lines of a bass guitar.
High-quality construction for clear, deep bass
This compact sub achieves strong, powerful lows with its high-tech design and materials. The 8" driver is reinforced with Kevlar and mounted in a rock-solid die-cast aluminum basket, giving you exceptionally tight, musical bass. And Velodyne's exclusive "Dynamic Driver Control System" assures linear woofer movement that greatly reduces distortion.
The MiniVee also offers flexible hookup options. Its back panel sports gold-plated line-level and speaker-level inputs. A crossover bypass switch means your home theater receiver can control the low frequencies for precise bass with your surround sound sources.
