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.Read more ›
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
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.
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...

Well, this sub is powerful, and it is tight and clean, but i can't give it 5 stars for one simple reason. It only goes down to 35 hz. Read morePublished on December 1, 2002 by an audio enthusiast
