Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Velodyne Impact-10 10-Inch Powered Subwoofer - Style and Power in a Compact Package

The Velodyne Impact Series subwoofers are stylish, affordable, high-output, low distortion subwoofers. They feature beautiful cabinets with black gloss lacquer trim that fit easily into your home, while their deep, defined bass brings your favorite movies and music to life - at very friendly prices. The 250W Impact-10 features a down firing port for high output with low distortion and produces amazing bass from a compact cabinet.

Stylish even without the front grill

Down-firing Port Design Minimizes Distortion

Velodyne subwoofers have always been known for accuracy, producing a fraction of the distortion by competitive subwoofers. The Impact-10 down-firing port design maximizes bass performance and output, while limiting any noise cause by air moving the port, maintaining musical accuracy and dynamic impact.

Superior Quality Drivers

Impact drivers are designed with massive magnets and 2-inch copper-wound voice coils to precisely match their MDP Amplifiers, maximizing the bass output and the bass extension of each subwoofer. The Impact Series long-throw excursion and high power handling capabilities allow these subwoofers to play deeper and louder than similarly priced products. Powerful magnet structures and costly voice coils quickly dissipate excess heat for exceptional reliability.

Meshes seamlessly with existing speakers
The Impact-10 subwoofer uses a highly efficient MDP amplifier for floor-shaking bass. Unlike competitive IC amp designs, the dynamic MDP amplifier generates more reserve power to accurately reproduce the most critical bass information. The durable MDP amp is engineered with two unique protection circuits to insure long-term reliability. These "green" amplifiers are engineered to use less electricity to produce their amazing output.

Quality Features for a Great Price

The Impat Series of subwoofers come with a number of superior features to enhance your home theater. The MDP amplifiers have more dynamic headroom for high impact sound. Each subwoofer comes with high quality long-throw drivers and 2-inch copper-wound voice coils. The adjustable, superior quality crossover system matches with the Impact subwoofer with existing main speakers. The Phase adjustment allows the user to maximize bass blend with existing main speakers. The auto on/off setting conserves energy and the small, compact cabinets will fit in any room of your home.

Velodyne Acoustics

Velodyne Acoustics, builders of the world's number one rated subwoofers for 25 years, is proud the unveil the Impact series of stylish, affordable, high-output, low distortion subwoofers.

This is a good speaker for the money. I can't help but wonder if the 12 would have been better seeing as how it's ony $30 more, but I dont have any buyers remorse over getting this one. This sub hits harder and sounds cleaner then the equally priced 500 Watt 12" JBL that it relaced. Replaced it because one of the capacitors caught fire taking out a section of the PCB with it. Sounds really good listening to all types of music and watching movies. Haven't watched any movies with heavy special effects yet though. Going to have to check it on the scene in Polar Express when the train pulls in and out of his front yard, thats a long drawn out bass sequence and the JBL distorted bad and sounded horrible, will uppdate when I do.

I'm only using the one LFE input, a lot of people have said that they had to use a Y to go to both inputs to make it sound good, but I have no need to do so. Guess it depends on your receiver. I'm using a Sony STRDG820.

Another great job from Amazon, ordered Friday and received Saturday for $3.99 shipping.

I purchase this unit to replace an old subwoofer. After extensive reading, I decided on the Velodyne Impact-10. After about 36 hours of 'breaking in' the speaker, I noticed the tight lower extension to my B&W 803 speakers and produced a very musical replication of double-basses and very tight timpani sounds. Very satisfied and highly recommended for small rooms with good speakers. (I run a recording studio at Beloit College and the system that the Velodyne is associated with, aside from the B&W speakers are: Naim Integrated amp, Macintosh G5, Cambridge Audio DAC, Musical Fidelity headphone amp, Rega turntable and audioquest interconnects.)

THIS THING HITS!! the 10" is perfect. I highly recommend! (the Denon too!)

My first impression of the Velodyne Impact 10 was accurate and lasting. When I first picked it up I was amazed how light-weight it is (about 22 lbs.). It also sounds light-weight. My second impression was also lasting and accurate. It is a handsome-looking little box. It is also a handsome-sounding little box. The opening piano chords from Adele's Live at the Royal Albert Hall rang with a realistic resonance, but this is no boom box. It has a very tight and musical sound that is a delight to listen to.
I performed some testing on the Impact 10, using the ground-plane method, outside. The frequency response is specified at 32-140 Hz ± 3 dB. I measured -3 dB at 34 Hz in my tests, which is close enough to say that I agree with their spec. Testing also showed nearly fixed group delay above 40 Hz, and an exponential-decay impulse response; both looked very good. One concern I had with the downward-firing port was interference with a carpeted floor, so I tested the Impact 10 on a hard surface and with a carpet over that. My surprise was that the speaker had a smoother frequency response with the carpet. Some ripple in the FR was prevalent around the port resonance at 35 Hz, but reduced with the carpet. Apparently the damping provided by the carpet is a good thing.
However, the spec and testing both agree that you will not get any sub-bass from the Impact 10. If you want a subwoofer to reproduce explosions and general rumble from the LFE track in your home theater, you must look at, ahem, a heavier player. If you want a small and inexpensive woofer to play music with your satellite speakers, and/or in a small home theater setup, then you will be satisfied with the Impact 10.

I'm actually surprised at the lack of reviews on these units, but as they are relatively new, I guess that's to be expected. I recently had a Klipsch sub's amp burn out on me and decided to replace it with something a little beefier (It gave me 7 years of love). But as the outage was unplanned, I didn't want to spend a large sum on the replacement. I was looking at the Velondyne vx-10 which has had a lot of nice reviews and could be picked up online for as low as $140 or so, though all brick and mortars I have contacted sell them for ~$249. I would have picked one up even despite the odd color scheme, but found that Velondyne had released the Impact series recently, and what reviews I could find suggested that they had significantly greater output with the kind of sound quality you would expect from Velondyne. They looked much nicer too.
The connections are nice, I would have preferred the crossover frequency knob was a little more clearly labeled, but since there's a gradual roll off, it shouldn't have any significant effect if you're a notch off.
The bass is easy and smooth, and if you set things up correctly, I found it a tad boomy at first, but spend a little time adjusting things and found that it had a very pleasantly flat (in a good way) deep output. I don't have the kind of location where I can turn it up too much, and I think, perhaps, for my apartment complex, this woofer is ridiculously overpowered. But you can leave the volume down and still enjoy a nice pleasant "punch" even when it's hardly audible. I'll be moving soon, and I have a feeling even with a moderately large living room and some yard space, I'll always risk angering the neighbors if I ever leave the volume up to high.
