Velodyne - DD10 Plus


Enquire about this product

The Velodyne Digital Drive(DD) series has been recognized as the premier line of subwoofers for some years. When hearing that they were coming out with a new version, most of us would ask what are they going to improve? Well, Velodyne didn’t get to be the number one subwoofer manufacturer by resting on their past achievements.
They went right through the whole structure, reworking everything from the bass driver itself to the cabinet, connections and onwards through to the inbuilt software that allows you to fine tune the response to suit your room acoustics, even allowing you to trial different placements in the room.
The bass driver is now a Fibreglass & Rohacell sandwich cone, with longer travel suspension and a more efficient (six layer, custom wound) coil to take advantage of that. The suspension or “spider” is doubled for better stability, and more precise linear travel means lower distortion, now an industry-best of less than 0.5%. The new driver structure also runs cooler for longer life expectancy.

The cabinet has more bracing to reduce unwanted resonances, always an important area for refinement. The amplifier is an improved (and patented) 1250w  Energy Recovery System (ERS) which delivers massive power while being more efficient, or “green”.
The system settings are comprehensive. If you want a minimum of fuss in getting set up, here’s one-touch Auto-EQ which will send out test tones and make adjustments to the various frequencies without you having to do anything. But if you want to do a more painstaking setup you can observe the test tones and see where the graph (send it to your laptop screen via USB) is too high or low, and make adjustments to any of the frequency bands that are out of tolerance. This will also enable you (if you wish to try it) to see the differing results with the subwoofer in different positions in the room.
Of course the subwoofer is remote controlled, so no fiddling with rear panel knobs and switches is necessary. That back panel, however, is very completely fitted out with connections (see picture below). There are RCA line level sockets plus speaker level inputs, and XLR sockets as well which enable high quality connections both in and out.
The front panel is concealed behind the grille but offers direct access for volume and crossover, plus one-touch Auto EQ setup, microphone input and USB.
