I wouldn't consider myself an audiophile, but an audio enthusiast. I began a quest to totally revamp my entertainment system about 6 months ago and in the process did A LOT of searching, read A LOT of reviews. I had a pretty decent pioneer prologic receiver that I had in college (only 6 years old). But with DVD's having digital surround sound, my prologic just wasnt' cutting it anymore. I also didn't have a subwoofer... It was time to upgrade.
I ended up getting a very nice receiver, in the Onkyo TX-DS797. I have nice floor standing JBL speakers in front as well as a very nice center channel (sorry, I don't know the model #) and JBL N24 II in back. My DVD player is a Toshiba SD-1700 (I've had great experiece with Toshiba products) and the Sony KV-27FS100 flat screen tv. I have monster speaker wire, audio and video cable throughout the system.
I wasn't sure about where to even start looking for subwoofers, since they were new to me. My friend has a nice Klipsch sub, I believe 10". It sounds awesome. I wasn't going to spend that much on a sub though...
When I bought my receiver at Circuit City, I asked about subs and they gave me some information on Cerwin-Vega and Velodyne. I had never heard of Velodyne before then. But when I looked into it more on the internet, I saw lots and lots of good reviews on their subs, which I believe is all they make. That's pretty impressive right there! I had Circuit City crank it up in their theatre room and it sounded very tight, and clean. It's hard to tell at the store, since everything is concrete and solid, it's hard to get a feel for what it would be like in your home. But the reviews I read really emphasized how "tight and clean" the sub was.
I live in a small apartment, so I knew that I couldn't get a really big sub.

I just previously purchased this maybe a week before the holidays .. With a solid subwoofer cable(it came down to the Monster 300 or Tributairies cable but that is another review) you cant go wrong at all with this baby. The Velodyne CHT8 delivers clean deep and accurate bass that will gurantee to keep you on the edge of your seat when watching your favorite dvd movies. It has a strong build quality and footprint tabs to give it that lift when finding that area of choice in your setup..
If you want to avoid that buyer's regret You cant go wrong with a VElodyne Sub I can't be more happier try to treat this piece like you center channel don't cheat yourself IM no audiophile but I know quality when I hear it GOOD Luck

First, for the "Audio enthusiast from Tigard OR.
Ther is no way the Sony SAWM40 or the AudioSource 15 come even close to the Velodyne CHT-8, those wanabies just do not cut it,
they have a lot of "Boom" but none is clean clear defined BASS.
THIS IS A COMMON MISTAKE ON THE PART OF NOVICES.
And just how did that person measure the results? By reading the ads?
This sub goes down enough for most peoples' ears anyway and in my setup it produces superb results that would not shame subs costing 3 times as much.

Looked all around Sydney for something small enough to be hidden anywhere, yet does not fall apart when the going gets tough (movie explosions, etc)... trust me, there is not many sub $AU1000 (my budget) subwoofers that can match this one.
I don't like big boomy bass, especially with music (the bass has to connect with the music, not dominate it!). But the sub must handle the tough stuff when playing a movie... the CHT-8 is excellent, if you want more bass, move up to 10", 12", 15"+... but what ever you do, check out the Velodyne series... I also liked the small M&K 8", tiny with good bass, but over $AU1000!...
Bad points for the CHT-8 are no remote, but in this price range not many (if at all) have this feature.
Overall... very tight sound, small(ish), does not fall apart, and for the price, unbeatable...

i've owned my sub for a little over a year and it has proven to me day after day that it can take anything i throw at it and still perform wonderfully. It hits the lowest notes without a problem and at the same time is very crisp and very clean. being as i own a car audio business i know what it is to hear good bass. I would never trade this for anything else....except for maybe the 10" or 12"
