Excerpt: You have to love the phrase ‘doing the doof-doofs’. A silly term for describing a clever technical process where a device, either a subwoofer or a system-tuning equaliser, has both voice and ears. The voice makes tone burst sounds that sweep from low to high (and go ‘doof-doof’) and the ears are the microphone, supplied with the Velodyne EQ-Max12 – part of a new range of mid-priced subs from the LFE brand.
Excerpt: With a 225W class D amp powering its forward-firing 30.5cm driver, the sound coming out of the Velodyne is powerful enough to fill even very large rooms without losing control. The downward-firing port and sturdy cabinet (propped on rubber feet) ensure that there is minimal port noise affecting the output, too, leaving notes clean and deep.
Pros: Lots of deep bass, bags of punch, user friendly
Cons: Some may want a little more precision, not the most stylish sub we’ve seen
