Velodyne launches revamped MicroVee MKII subwoofer

Velodyne has released the MicroVee MKII, a sequel to the entry-level compact subwoofer it first launched in 2006.

Described as 'not a re-invention, but an evolution' of its best-selling bassmaker, it features increased amp power (to a claimed 1200W RMS/ 2,000W peak) and a revised DSP profile to generate more slam and speed from its driver array.

The MicroVee MKII uses a 22.9cm x 22.9cm x 24.4cm extruded aluminium cabinet, with a front-firing 6.5in active woofer joined by two 6.5in passive radiators. Velodyne has added a new satin white finish – alongside the traditional satin black – to give the sub more living room appeal.

'Listeners will notice a much tighter and cleaner bass delivery, but with lots of with control and speed,' compared to the original MicroVee, says Velodyne. The sub is recommended for film fans, music-only listening and immersive gaming applications, and has a rated frequency response of 38Hz-120Hz.

Velodyne is now owned by German music specialist Audio Reference, and the MicroVee MKII is billed as the first product in a 'new initiative' to gain the brand new fans.

Says Martin Morecroft, Managing Director of Velodyne's UK distributor Redline Distribution: 'We are really excited about bringing the new version of this classic Velodyne creation to market. Its combination of performance and size is really hard to beat.'

The Velodyne MicroVee MKII is available now, priced around £1,000.
