In the new member of the Velodyne family, the six-and-a-half-inch model works together with two side-mounted passive radiators.

Another nice gimmick is the wired “Remote Eye” for the remote control included in the scope of delivery. It enables the encoder to be used even if the subwoofer has been “hidden”, e.g. B. under a piece of furniture.
The sub is connected either via cinch (line or LFE) or speaker terminals for operation with external power amplifiers. Crossover frequency, phase position and volume of the sub can be set either directly on the device or via the remote control. The new sub is available in black and white.
