  • 1Description

With its continued excellence in high performance low-frequency bass reproduction Velodyne introduces the Impact-12 Subwoofer. Designed for both professional and home entertainment enthusiasts with the capability to deliver a full, clear, and tight low-frequency response with its Maximum Dynamic Power (MDP) amplification. Its unique configuration features an active 12" front-firing woofer cone, down-firing port, acoustically neutral cabinet design, 2" dual-layer copper-wound voice coils, 165W RMS/275W peak power, and a beefy 89.6 oz magnet structure - this powerful combination enables this sub to reproduce the tightest "punch" at the highest sound levels in its class.

In addition, it features a 50 - 200Hz low-pass crossover, full range high-pass crossover, 0° or 180° phase adjustment, line-level/LFE/speaker level inputs, and a wide range of frequencies with exquisite sound quality and low distortion. With its compact cube design, it's perfect for home theater, whole house audio systems, and anywhere high quality, compact bass projection is required.

Maximum Dynamic Power (MDP) Amplification
Designed with Velodyne's MDP technology, this subwoofer is capable of reproducing well defined bass tones that will enhance the overall sound value of any soundtrack with lower distortion.
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.
12" Woofer Assembly
Its 12" coated fiber cone woofer with an 9.7" piston diameter reproduces demanding home theater soundtracks and music with authority, accuracy and low distortion.
Low-Frequency Response
With a frequency response of 29 - 140Hz, this subwoofer offers a full range of low-frequencies with the capability of reproducing a very tight bass-response throughout your home theater.
Auto Turn On Function
If a signal is not detected for approximately 8 minutes, the subwoofer will switch to standby mode, which in turn will draw minimal power.
Phase Adjustment
This subwoofer can easily blend into your existing system with its built-in adjustable (50 - 200Hz) high-pass crossover, and selectable phase control.
Features and Controls
This subwoofer offers line level, speaker level inputs and outputs, LFE input, LED power indicator, removable front grille, and rear panel volume control.

    Velodyne Acoustics Impact-12 reviews

    Impact-12 275W Subwoofer (Black Ash w/Black Glass Trim) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good build quality Great on movie soundtracks. Using the Impact-12 in a 15x20 room. It took about 2 weeks to break in but after that time frame and a bit location testing it works well. I also purchased the Impact-10 for another smaller room. Had them side by side during the break in period. The Impact-10 is very close in output to the Impact-12 and may be fine for most people. The Impact-12 goes just a little lower but not by much. Overall very pleased with both from Velodyne, a name known for subwoofers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Thing Rocks I use this Sub with some smallish Klipsch towers. Nothing but music. It's small, looks good and sounds great. Not boomy once its adjusted. It just fills in the low mids and lows. I love it. Oh, great packaging for the shipment to the house! Layer after layer of stuff. Exactly what I was looking for. No cons on this Sub
