Velodyne Impact-Mini 6.5" Subwoofer Review


Velodyne Impact Mini 6.5

In the subwoofer business for 29 years, Velodyne is one of the respected names in the industry.  They manufacture a wide range of products, including their first in-ear headphones, the vPulse, and entry-level up to studio or theater-grade subwoofer products.  We're taking a look at their Impact-Mini 6.5 subwoofer, which packs a lot of crisp, room-shaking bass in a very small footprint.


With the Impact-Mini you get amazing bass in a tiny cabinet that is almost the same size as the MiniVee-8, but at a very budget-friendly price. This engineering marvel is lightweight with an aluminum cone, furniture-quality cabinet finish and concentrates its 300 watts of output power in the 38 Hz to 140 Hz range. This is Velodyne's lightest weight subwoofer and includes an adjustable low pass crossover frequency so you can easily match the Impact-Mini to your satellite speakers.


  • Compact, stylish cabinet; high-value subwoofer

  • 6.5" active and 8" passive andonized aluminum woofers

  • High quality, long throw drivers

  • 2" copper-wound voice coil for exceptional reliability

In The Box
