Summary: After owning a velodyne sub for nearly 12 years, it finally gave out. Being an audio/video nut, i needed the extra kick for my hd movies and discs. The size and wattage of a velodyne or definitive tech sub would have run me a pretty penny. I remember back when i purchased my first sub, Bic was pretty popular back then. I gave it a shot and i'm glad that i did. Sounds very loud if you like it this way, but i had to tone it down a bit for the neighbors.
