Dual-Layer Copper-Wound Voice Coils
Developed with 2" dual-layer copper-wound voice coils; this subwoofer assures linear travel and allows for heat dissipation throughout the enclosure.

Its 10" coated fiber cone woofer with an 8.2" piston diameter reproduces demanding home theater soundtracks and music with authority, accuracy and low distortion.

      Comments about Velodyne Impact-10 250W Self-Powered Subwoofer (Black Ash):

      I have another Velodyne Sub on my main surround sound system so my expectations were high. It functioned as described. It was easy to install and adjust. Sounds great. It really rounds out the sound on my second system.

      No problems with the order and shipping. B&H was great as always.

      Does exactly what I need

          Comments about Velodyne Impact-10 250W Self-Powered Subwoofer (Black Ash):

          After many weeks of online research, I decided that this sub would fit my needs. My home theater setup includes a Denon AVR-1910, PS3, 2 jbl studio monitor bookshelf speakers, 2 jbl northridge series bookshelf speakers (surrounds) and a jbl S-Center channel in an apartment living room about 12x20 feet. For 10 year old speakers, these things are still awesome.

          Anyway, I used the Audyssey setup on the Denon, and set my 5 main channels at an 80hz high pass freq. and the subwoofer at 80hz for the low pass freq, with the gain set around the mid point. The sub is in line with the front channels at about 12 feet from the prime listening area and the receiver has it trimmed at .5 db.

          Out of the box I decided to play the sub at low volumes for about the first 5 hours, to make sure I didn't overexert the initial break in. I've now used it for about 20 hours and have it set where I need it, and I can honestly tell you, it's plenty strong for apartment use. It will produce rumble you can start to feel while playing Independence Day or the jet engines in Top Gun, but what is most important to me is the smooth musical (tight) bass in movie soundtracks like Miami Vice or The Nightmare Before Christmas.

          I read somewhere that this sub will lose a little of it's composure when playing long heavy action type sequences. Even if that is true, I'm certainly not going to pay $400-600 for an incremental improvement in sound quality our loudness. At about $300, this subwoofer provides strong LFE output with a minimum of distortion. My former subwoofer was a 10 inch, 100 watt KLH that I bought for $100, and it showed. Sure it could hit the lows but they were too often sloppy or boomy. Now that I have my Velodyne, I feel like movies and music sound more controlled on the low end. This subwoofer does exactly what I need it to without aggravating the neighbors too much. Note: I've posted this review on another online retailer as well, I hope it serves to help people decide whether or not this product is for them.

            Very nice sub good impact for home theater but also musical. I paired this with Paradigm Monitor 7's & CC-290 and a Harmon Kardon AVR and it blends perfectly. Room size is 12 X 18.

              Comments about Velodyne Impact-10 250W Self-Powered Subwoofer (Black Ash):

              It took about 2 weeks of playing before it broke in but after that time frame I am very pleased. Not a 15 inch or a 12 inch in output but for its size it fits the bill. Using it in a 12X20 room.

                Having been a Velodyne owner for past 14 years did not hestitate to buy this for my new Home Theater. Wanted a smaller foot print sub to replace my CT-120 that would deliver enough slam and this does not disappoint.
