As we make our way to Denver on Sept. 10 for CEDIA Expo 2014 – the year’s biggest event for the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association – that sound you hear is our newest collaboration, poised to make beautiful music.
We’ve teamed up with The PowerHouse Alliance, a consortium of regional wholesale distributors, to provide audio/visual installers and retailers in all 50 states with convenient access to our full line of high-performance, low distortion subwoofers.
We’re now making our subwoofers available to the thousands of small consumer electronics retailers and professional installers around the country who rely on The PowerHouse Alliance when selecting the very finest components for a home theater or entertainment center installation.
For us, this is an ideal collaboration between two high-tech companies, both of which know how to take care of the customer. And it’s especially good news for custom installers and integrators across the U.S., who gain access to the best subs on the market.
Founded in 2010, The PowerHouse Alliance consortium consists of 13 regional wholesale distributors that provide everything a small consumer electronics retailer or installer needs to outfit a home theater, entertainment center or home security system. Each of its 40 warehouse locations stock a full line of nearly 200 different brands, ranging from home theater components and wire to lighting fixtures and furnishings.
Custom installers appreciate that our subwoofers deliver superior sound in every type of system. In addition to introducing the first remote controlled subwoofers, we’ve engineered sophisticated and easy-to-use digital room bass EQ systems; easy to build in-wall, in-cabinet, in-floor and in-room subwoofers; and one-button-to-perfect bass automatic equalizations for music, theater and games. To ensure maximum output and minimum distortion, unique “anti-clipping” circuits in our subwoofers automatically monitor the amplifier, allowing the subwoofer to exploit its full power capacity without distorting. Exclusive “dynamic-compression” and over-excursion circuits are also integrated into our subwoofers to protect from overload and provide extraordinary reliability and durability.
For more than 30 years, we’ve been recognized as the leading manufacturer of high-performance, low distortion powered subwoofers that fit any budget – from the Velodyne Impact-Mini 6.5-Inch Subwoofer ($459) to the powerful Velodyne Digital Drive PLUS 18-Inch Subwoofer ($5,799) and plenty of options in between. Newest on the shelf are the Velodyne Wi-Q® Wireless 10-inch and Wi-Q® Wireless 12-inch subwoofers, which are the culmination of three decades of leadership in subwoofer technology. With no clumsy wires, the Wi-Q can be quickly integrated into any entertainment system – in any location within 50 feet (15 m) – or concealed in custom cabinetry.
CEDIA, of course, is the leading global authority in the $14 billion home tech business. CEDIA represents some 3,500 companies worldwide and serves more than 22,000 industry professionals that make, design and integrate products and services for the connected home. CEDIA is also the go-to destination for professional education, certification, research and consumer awareness.
Off to Denver! (And if you happen to be in town, look us up – we’ll be in Booth 1346, at the Colorado Convention Center.)
