Velodyne Acoustics SPL-800R Subwoofers


The industry's best selling small subwoofers just got better with the perfect combination of beauty, brains and brawn. We took the original SPL Series II's 1000-watt RMS amps, long throw drivers, and compact, beautiful cabinets and added a 6-band automatic digital room equalizer with included mic, a remote control and full DSP control. The result is a subwoofer that adapts to any room's décor and acoustic anomalies with performance that leaves anything else in its class in the dust. The SPL-R Series - Small, Precise...Loud. Simply Perfect.

Nice clean bass from a small enclosure. The black glossy finish looks great.


It does not produce the lowest bass notes, but it is perfectly fine for my 2-channel music system. The black glossy finish is both a strength and weakness. It is a weakness because of all the dirt and fingerprints that are easily seen on the finish.

I only have a 2-channel system with a pair of Paradigm Signature S2 monitor speakers. I wanted to get a subwoofer to enhance bottom end. The Velodyne SPL-800R subwoofer gives a very nicely defined bass in a very compact system. Because this is compact and only has an 8-inch driver it doesn't produce the lowest bass notes, but it is great for my purposes. This subwoofer nicely integrates into my system/room. I also like the compact size and my wife appreciates this very much as well. I also auditioned the larger SPL-1000R with a 10 inch driver, but felt it was too much for our room

Customer Service

Crutchfield is an excellent company. They make it as convenient for the customer as possible to buy from them. They paid for shipping both ways when I returned the SPL-1000R unit. I only wish they had more hi-end components.
