Doesn't work at low volumes = FAIL.

Bud, Amazon

  • Summary: I am a recovering audiophile with a 15" servo Velodyne that I have enjoyed for years, so I went straight to Velodyne for my new sub which was to be used in a bedroom/office area which is where I spend about 2/3 of my life. It is not for a home theater. I chose this as I wanted something high quality, but not wanting to spend thousands on the higher-end models which, IMO, are also freakishly ugly.

Questionable Performance Longevity

  • Summary: Sound from the Velodyne EQ-Max 10 is subtle but awesome when it is working. The earth literally moves beneath your feet. It's like magic, and sound quality is everything I expected in a Velodyne subwoofer product. However, I've now experienced my second operational failure in the 19 months I've owned this model. My first mishap occurred 5 months into my first EQ-Max 10 when I began smelling a horrible chemical, burnt wiring odor that permeated the entire house.

Sweet Velodyne!

  • Summary: I've been using a Velodyne sub with our theater equipment for 15 years. When I finally had the ability to set up a man cave in my basement, I naturally wanted Velodyne to provide the bass. This time I opted for 2 subs. Once again they are awesome! With the room & setup I have, I only have the volume on the subs at 12. Even in a 20x15 room, they provide a solid amount of crisp pounding bass. The freeway scene from Transformers 3 is great!

  • Summary: Sounds amazing, and adds a lot to a home theatre. Importantly: do not ship this to a 240v country unless you're willing to get the internals modified.

Wow, bass in your face!!!

  • Summary: I'm used to listening to my audio "dry" through studio monitors but often coveted the full depth of sounds that only a subwoofer can give. This one is deep without the distortion and buzzing. It's smooth. It's like Barry White to the max, ooohh yeah. I can't believe I listened to audio without a real subwoofer for all these years. Setup is simple because if you're intimidated by all the equalizing and customizing, there's a remote to help you through the process.

Great sound, money spent more on sound than outsides, I think

  • Summary: I got this for use in my living room and a PSB Subsonic 5i for use in the smaller bedroom system. However, since I had the 5i in the living room system for a while, I was able to compare them "apples to apples" where they were the only thing that changed, and both are 10" subwoofers who's prices are near each other. (I never understand people comparing things like this that are in hugely different price brackets.

Great bass from a small sub!

  • Summary: I am not a picky when it comes to my audio components, I have an older Sony receiver that I have been using with some KLH speakers. I don't have high end audio equipment but my ears are satisfied. When I installed the Velodyne 80, it was a ridiculous improvement in bass output, the bass was solid, clean, and more powerful. I like the flexibility of having the remote, now that we have an infant, I can easily turn down the output when the baby goes to sleep.

Nice bass sound

  • Summary: I'm not an audiophile, I think that's the right word, but when I finally got this speaker to work it sounded very good to me. The cable connections on the back were not what I expected, so it took some time to finally hook it up. Be sure to check that your sound system is easy to interface with this speaker system. I just used the default settings, but it comes with a small microphone with a long cable, so you can optimize how the bass reaches any spot in the room.

Very Powerful. Quite pleased.

  • Summary: We already own a really good 10" Subwoofer that we like a lot but I was thrilled to get to try this one as well. Our other Subwoofer set the bar high but this Subwoofer had no problem meeting my high standards. We have watched a couple dozen movies with this Subwoofer and it certainly has the power to shake every window in the house without the volume even being high. This Subwoofer complements our sound system very well and sounds excellent.
