Summary: Works perfectly well in a small room. This is my second powered subwoofer from Velodyne and it's quality never fails to satisfy. Great bass with seamless crossover with the main speakers. The size and quality of bass output complements my NHT bookshelves speakers extremely well.
Summary: The output for this unit is absolutely phenomenal. The dimensions of this sub is very small but it will rattle a few things. In fact, I have two units, one connected to a Denon 2112 CI and the other connected to a Pioneer Elite VSX-51. I use Monster cables on both with AudioQuest rca splitters.
Summary: I bought this because I did not have the space in the room I wanted it for a bigger box. It has a nice sound, but its volume is a little on the feeble side. I had to trim my mains by 10db to get the kind of balance I wanted.
Summary: This sub is exactly as expected. It will give you a good bottom end to round out your 5.1 system. I can clearly hear the base guitar, and base sax tones perfectly. Works outstanding when listening to techno dance. My room is irregular and 15 x 29 in size.
Summary: I have this sub attached to a Denon AVR-1610, along with a pair of BIC DV62 F/L and a BIC Center speaker, and it sounds great whether you're using it for movies or music (for rap music, it sounds awful no matter how much you adjust, but I don't listen to it anyways, so it's no bother to me as I was...
Summary: I bought this to enhance the sound of the ceiling speakers in my 3 season room. I wanted something small that would fit under a table or love seat so my choices were limited. I first tried the Yamaha FSW-050. The size was perfect but the love affair ended there.
Summary: I just bought a house and had a room with surround speakers built into the ceiling, but needed left and right speakers and a good sub to go with my TV. Ended up purchasing a pair of the Orb Audio MOD1 speakers (two thumbs up there as well) along with this subwoofer.
Summary: My Infinity BU-80 finally died. I had it running with my M-Audio BX5a's (love those little guys)! Costco had the Energy 8HG for $99. Tested it this morning - clipped on almost everything. It was pretty good with mid level music (jazz, classical and the like) if you kept the volume low to mid.
Summary: Just place the order with the coupon code WS901X5757 and the savings are great. I know this is not a $1000. sub but it is a Velodyne and I know it will be a killer sub at this price. How do these guys a electronic expo do it ! The code also works with other audio items.
