Velodyne Acoustics has introduced the Digital Power Slot (DPS) Series of subwoofers, a line of subwoofers using digital signal processing technology to control all functions of the subwoofer.
The DPS series consists of the DPS-10, with a 10” forward firing driver (8.2” piston diameter) and 375 watts dynamic power, and the DPS-12, with a 12” forward firing driver (9.9” piston diameter) and 400 watts dynamic power. The DPS Series offers digital control of crossovers, equalization, dynamic compression, volume, phase, protection circuits and four selectable presets.
Located on the top front of the DPS subwoofer is a touch-panel control where many functions are performed and customized. The panel features a volume control, and four presets for movies, R&B-rock, jazz-classical and video games. The touch-panel control also features a night mode feature that limits the maximum output of the subwoofer for late night listening.
The DPS Series subwoofers will be available for audition and purchase at Velodyne’s authorized dealer network July 1. The suggested retail pricing of the DPS Series ranges from $499 to $599.
