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. I demoed the Martin Logan sub - the match to the rest of my system, I chose this one. I have him in the back of the room in the corner and you can't tell where all the base is coming from.
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). **If you look up the user "My story" his reviews are on 6 or more Velodyne products and they all have 1 star ratings. How many subwoofers did this person buy and take to Singapore? Clearly suspicious.
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: I really like the velodyne quality. I have had one impact 12 for a few years in my media room. I just decided to upgrade my living room so I got rid of the Bose and went with another impact 12. I would have given it five stars but this product wasn't working out of the box. When I opened the speaker box I found that velodyne hadn't connected the speaker inside of the box. Other than that it is still a great product. I stand by this brand.
Summary: Really Sharp looking. Plenty of Bass. Very well Made. Sounds Musical, and will be Awesome for movies as well. I paid just over $300.00 delivered, and doubt there is anything in that price range brand new that can touch it.
