Velodyne has announced the compact yet powerful MicroVee MKII subwoofer.

Velodyne now has new owners in German high-quality music reproduction specialist, Audio Reference, and hopes the MicroVee MKII will help the brand gain new fans as well as continuing to please those who have been long term users of Velodyne subs.

Velodyne MicroVee MKII

First introduced back in 2006, MicroVee was one of the brand’s most successful products on record. The MicroVee MKII is now available in the UK and features a boost in power to 1200 W RMS (2000W Peak) with new and precise DSP profiling. As well as more ‘slam’ than its predecessors, Velodyne says that the MicroVee MKII offers more control and less distortion than the MK I.

The new subwoofer features a single active 6.5-inch driver (5-inch piston diameter) and two 6.5-inch passive radiators (5-inch piston diameter). The machine also gets all the benefits of Velodyne’s Patented Energy Recovery System amplifier. We are also told that the unit enjoys excellent heat dissipation and is structural rigidity thanks to the ribbed extruded aluminium cabinet. There is also speaker level pass through with
120Hz crossover.

The compact (22.9 x 22.9 x 24.4 cm) sub boasts LFE, speaker level and mini-jack inputs meaning it can deliver right across the central three use case scenarios the product has been designed for. The MicroVee MKII then supports media playback, precision audio for music-only listening, as well as adding exciting dynamics in gaming applications.

The MicroVee MKII sports an attractive and contemporary ribbed extruded aluminium cabinet. You have a choice of satin black and satin white, enabling the sub to fit in with any interior scheme.

Martin Morecroft, Managing Director of Redline Distribution, told StereoNET:

We are really excited about bringing the new version of this classic Velodyne creation to market. We know everyone is going to be impressed with the performance and flexibility delivered. It has evolved this category to deliver a product that exactly fits where the demand is. Its combination of performance and size is really hard to beat.

The Velodyne MicroVee MKII is available now. We have reached out to Redline for the UK pricing but we are aware that the MicroVee MKII goes for €1,033 inc VAT.
