Summary: I've had a Velodyne (8 inch)in my stereo system for about 10 years and loved it... I decided to try an up grade, so I went for the Impact-10 but it did not do the job... It really is very light weight literally, and the bass reproduction is also light weight...no pop or punch, just rumbles... My opinion...
Summary: I purchased this subwoofer to supplement my main speakers which sound nice, but are lacking in bass. This subwoofer complements them well. The overall sound is much richer and the subwoofer really fills out the bass. For the price, it's a nice unit with good definition. I'm very happy!
Summary: Just completed the home theater - a 20 x 16 finished attic. Polk rc85i speakers and this sub complete the 5.1 setup. This sub creates a very clean and powerful low end for music. For movie tracks, some scenes that want to rumble the room have no problem doing so with this sub. In the middle of a movie, I've had to look over at the sub in awe more than twice in one week. Nicely done Velodyne.
Summary: My first impression of the Velodyne Impact 10 was accurate and lasting. When I first picked it up I was amazed how light-weight it is (about 22 lbs.). It also sounds light-weight. My second impression was also lasting and accurate. It is a handsome-looking little box. It is also a handsome-sounding little box. The opening piano chords from Adele's Live at the Royal Albert Hall rang with a realistic resonance, but this is no boom box.
Summary: Sharing my recent purchase experience with velodyne vx11 Why i say poor product quality? 1. Unit not working and faulty which means no quality assessment and checks 2. Volume control knob connected in the ICs are not working which means potential sub standard material. Is this a common issue in china made products and patented in the US? 3. Amp was found faulty yet this is a new product.Another example of poor QC check and poor components.
Summary: This subwoofer replace an old Klipsch I had for over 10 years - good bye good friend. The new Velodyne has great sound, not boomy, but solid bass punch. Initial impression of materials and workmanship is quite good. It would be appropriate to have a subwoofer input on this speaker rather than "Y-ing" or running the speaker cables from the amp. Did follow recommendations to put volume at 1/4 and then control from the amp - this seems to work well.
Summary: Of primary importance is the fact that this subwoofer delivers clean/sweet bass at both low and high volume levels for both music and movie applications and that's the crux of its raison d'etre. But additionally, it is desirably quite light weight and aesthetically pleasing. The combination of great bass purity, manageable weight and appealing aesthetics more than justify the $299 price tag that I paid. Definitely an overall pleaser.
Summary: This is a good speaker for the money. I can't help but wonder if the 12 would have been better seeing as how it's ony $30 more, but I dont have any buyers remorse over getting this one. This sub hits harder and sounds cleaner then the equally priced 500 Watt 12" JBL that it relaced. Replaced it because one of the capacitors caught fire taking out a section of the PCB with it. Sounds really good listening to all types of music and watching movies.
