I purchased the Velodyne after a month of research. I compared wattage, frequency range, enclosures, etc. before deciding on the Velodyne.

Simply put, it is incredible.

My particular unit had some damage to the cabinet so I contacted the seller, OneCall. The cause of the damage was never completely determined, but the seller offered me many options as to how to proceed. I opted to keep the unit and a price adjustment was made. Now on to the sub's performance (which did not appear to have been adversely affected by the damage).

It is a beast. It hits hard, low, loud, and clean......not sure what else you could ask for. I did discover that placement is very important and a little experimentation can produce big gains in sound quality.

When I really crank it up, I have to dust the furniture afterward. It is in my "man cave," which is a 16x24 room with a drop ceiling. The vibration from the sub causes white particles from the drop ceiling to fall out during extended loud play. Fine by me.

If this beast is within your budget, and you like lots of low, clean bass, don't hesitate.....well worth the price.

This is the third sub I've owned, but the first Velodyne. It was purchased to enhance a new speaker system for the surround-sound in the living room...which is 18' X 16' with 18' ceilings. It's a big, open room that opens to a kitchen on the side. The previous speakers were DefTec 7002's with the build-in subs, and it never sounded right in the living room -- horrible bass, poor dialoge, etc. Not the case here at all. The sub setup was super easy. Immediately the entire system sounded better than the others I've had, and provided focus, "thump", and low-end effects that I've missed in other movies. I popped in the new Star Trek on Blu-Ray and, pardon the pun, was immediately transported into the movie and off the sofa because of the better sound-intro, explosions, and the like. My wife noticed it as well and remarked that it was like "seeing a movie for the first time".

Music was equally good, and since the sub has separate settings for listening types (as well as 90 degree phase adjustments) it was really easy to get fantastic low-end sound on different songs and music types --- she likes country, me not so much. Rock, some jazz. It all sounded great. Authoritative. Like it was easy to go low and not muddy the sound. Since a sub that big can punch you in the chest if you let it we found ourselves turning the volume down a bit and adjusting the crossover so it didn't become too much. Great buy for the money. Great sub.

Highly recommended.

I replaced a twenty year-old Velodyne, then state of the art, with this one. I had little idea that it would make such a huge difference in my movie gazing experience! My old sub would flinch at times and not get the whole pounding sounds needed for the realism of some of the newer soundtracks. This baby shakes the whole g-d room! The neighbors in the houses next door have already "commented'. Not to mention the accuracy of the sound and response. It is likely not the highest quality available in terms of precision or distortion, but I can't tell, and I've listened to a bunch. I have thoroughly enjoyed the way it handles more delicate music and if you like the true sound of cannons going off in the 1812 Overture, I suggest you try this one. I purchased this for 777.00, including tax. It is about 75 lbs. so it's not easy to move, but who moves their sub around?

I searched for serveral subs at all price levels. Price for me in the range of $1,000 to $2,000 was not an issue in my final decsion. I did want to get the best sub for the money and did not want to spend 2k if i felt the sound quality overall did not warrant the purchase. I listened to about 5 different brands all in this price range and overall Velodyne was the clear winner. Was going to purchase the Velodyne Optima 12 which is around $1,500.00 it is a solid secure box with a very tight punch. But compared to the DEQ15 i did not notice a big difference for the $500 justification. The DEQ 15 is solid as well and the bass fills the entire room. Absolutley no epmty spots if you phase it correctly and the placement is correct. I have a very large room approx. 25 feet wide by 45 feet long with an additional 12 by 12 open area. This sub surrounds you in the music in stereo. Assuming you also have high end speakers. The sub hits hard in your chest like a dance club with a heart beat. As far as movies it hits hard when asked to perform and plays smooth with everything inbetween.

This is not a sub if you live in an apartment. Overall this sub is a great value and the sound will not disapoint you. Yes there are other subs on the market and if you want to spend 2k or more than do it, but for this price it cant be beat. For those that had a bad review I would suspect they had a bad unit which can happen with any mass produced product, but dont let there review sway you from making the purchase.
