Summary: Based on my time with the MiniVee, I declare Velodyne the king of bass per square inch. Not only did the MiniVee simply deliver more output and extension than I could have hoped for from such a small box, but it delivered rich quality bass that never sounded muddy. The only minor criticism I have of the MiniVee is the premature rolloff I measured above 70Hz.
Pros: Unimaginably great bass from such a small box, No rattles or audible strain even at max output levels, Unobtrusive easy to hide cabinet
Cons: Premature high frequency rolloff above 70Hz, No speaker level outputs, No remote control, pricey

The Dynamic Driver Control System ensures linear sound and the MiniVee 8’s output level can be controlled through its remote control.
