(http://rbi.ims.ca/4917-54). Although only 10 × 10 × 12 inches, this digitally-controlled subwoofer delivers 2000W of dynamic power with a fraction of the distortion of competitive systems. A digital accelerometer in the unit measures the movement of the subwoofer cone and a DSP controller compares this movement to the input signal at a rate of 15,800 times per second to make corrections and keep the cone's motion as close as possible to the source input. To achieve typical distortion rates well below 0.5 percent, Velodyne Acoustics' engineers chose Texas Instruments' TMS320C2000 controller for its DSP performance and highly integrated MCU-like peripherals.
