a sub I've referred to as "man's best friend"), the impact 12 came into its own ...

Summary: After 2 days of break in (replacing a 15 year olde CHT-10, which gave up the ghost after as many years of loyal and hard working service, a sub I've referred to as "man's best friend"), the impact 12 came into its own and can be summed up in a word: Beast.
Summary: I purchased this to compliment by B&W 685's. it more than did the job. I had it set at about half power, and it was perfect for both music and movies, with an emphasis on movies. For the price I highly recommend this subwoofer. It is worth every penny.
Summary: This unit does not work from day one, but as I set it up after the 14-days return period allowed by Electronics Expo, my options are either to use it as a foot stool, or spend $60 to send a "supposedly" new unit back to Velodyne for repair.
Summary: The 20 word short and sweet: I don't always buy sub's, but when I do, its a Velodyne. I have a very large room (30X40) so I new I needed at least a 12". This thing rocks!! I'm very impressed with the response with both music and movies.
Summary: Anyone giving this subwoofer three stars or less, either has a terrible home theater system, doesn't know what they are doing, or is used to buying top end professional equipment (why they would give a product of this range a low rating is beyond me).
