The Velodyne Impact-12 12-Inch Powered Subwoofer - Amazing Bass From a Compact Cabinet

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 275W Impact-12 features a down firing port for high output with low distortion and produces amazing bass from a compact cabinet.

Includes three inputs and three outputs


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-12 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.


Stylish even without the front grille
The Impact-12 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. The Impact Series boasts attractive cabinets with black lacquer trim that easily fit into your home, while their deep, defined, accurate bass brings your favorite movies and music to life--at a very friendly price.

I have owned a Klipsch LF-10 sub, Velodyne HGS-12 sub, Paradigm PW-2200 sub. and a Velodyne DD-15 subwoofer. I purchased this subwoofer because of my experience with Velodyne subwoofers. This sub. was a terrific addition to my sons Klipsch HT-500 / Yamaha Reciever combo. purchased for my sons room. The Velodyne easily tripled the bass output and quality over the base subwoofer that Klipsch sells with the HT-500 set.
I'm amazed at how clean, powerful and HUGE the presence of sound is now that we added the Velodyne Impact 12" to the mix. Just a couple of days ago, I ordered the Velodyne DEQ-12R to add to the set-up. My sons room already impacts the entire house with authority, I can't wait to hear and feel the system once the other Velodyne sub gets here. The Klipsch, Yamaha and Velodyne set-up is nothing short of astonishing. You would truely have to see those tiny satelites while listening to the sound coming from them and the velodyne.
If you want bass with a solid impact and with very clean sound but don't have alot to spend on a subwoofer, buy this sub. It really is the very best subwoofer I have heard and felt compared to subs costing twice as much. I do think that the sub could use a better low bass extension for movies but it is tuned for high output with a low bass extension of 29 hz. Overall it is the very best bang for the buck with solid clean bass that lives up to it's name, Impact!

Anyone giving this subwoofer three stars or less, either has a terrible home theater system, doesn't know what they are doing, or is used to buying top end professional equipment (why they would give a product of this range a low rating is beyond me). **If you look up the user "My story" his reviews are on 6 or more Velodyne products and they all have 1 star ratings. How many subwoofers did this person buy and take to Singapore? Clearly suspicious.**

I have top end Polk speakers all around, and a Yamaha RX-A810 AVENTAGE receiver, which is amazing. The only thing that remained to be purchased was a subwoofer. After doing plenty of research online, I went to a few stores to hear them in person. Velodyne specializes in subwoofers and prior to my research, I've never heard of them. The Velodyne sounded superb, even compared to some other high end subwoofers.

I ended up buying the Velodyne Impact-12 here on Amazon. After I installed it, I was extremely satisfied with my purchase. I assure you, in this price range, the Velodyne Impact-12 is very hard to beat. The construction is solid, the bass is clean and deep, even when turned up high. There are two knobs on the back, one for the level of bass and one for range. I can easily set the bass level and frequency to shake my entire house if I wanted.

Velodyne has subwoofers in a higher price range, but for its class, the Impact-12 is as good as it gets.

The 20 word short and sweet: I don't always buy sub's, but when I do, its a Velodyne. I have a very large room (30X40) so I new I needed at least a 12". This thing rocks!! I'm very impressed with the response with both music and movies. I demoed the Martin Logan sub - the match to the rest of my system, I chose this one. I have him in the back of the room in the corner and you can't tell where all the base is coming from. Fortunately my new amp does dual sub Preout (7.2) at this price I could afford to buy a second one!
UPDATE:
Its been 6 months and I'm still very happy. Still wanting a second one....

I bought this sub to replace my Paradigm that died. I have not been dissappointed and you don't realize how much your missing until you lose a sub.

I purchased this to compliment by B&W 685's. it more than did the job. I had it set at about half power, and it was perfect for both music and movies, with an emphasis on movies. For the price I highly recommend this subwoofer. It is worth every penny.

Tremendous low-end thumper at a reasonable price point. I could not find a better sounding sub at this price level.

After 2 days of break in (replacing a 15 year olde CHT-10, which gave up the ghost after as many years of loyal and hard working service, a sub I've referred to as "man's best friend"), the impact 12 came into its own and can be summed up in a word:

Beast.

Countless blockbusters have been improved on the low end. Thank the 12" and down firing port, but movies are the easy part.

Musically might as well be a live show. Nirvana's Nevermind rollicks across the entire spectrum with an ever present kick in the gut from Grohl and groovecoaster from Novo.

Very, very happy with this purchase, and looking forward to another 15 years of rocking steady

I've had this sub in my living room for about 4 or 5 months now, and I'm still amazed at the sound quality. Granted - it's not quite as accurate as the much higher priced Velodyne servo-driven subs, but for the money it can't be beat.
It reproduces the really low frequencies just as accurately as the higher frequencies, and the response is smooth across the entire band. I have it crossed over at about 100hz.
One of my friends was so impressed with the sound quality, that he bought one to replace the Sony sub that came with his theater system.
