Bang for buck at 30% off list was too good to pass up
9 April 2015
Summary: First venture in the Velodyne Subwoofer arena. I was skeptical at first due to it's small size. Having owned several powered subs in the past, the largest being a 650 watt Infinity series, I decided to take this one. Bang for buck at 30% off list was too good to pass up.
Summary: So far so good. I like the option of always having it on or on standby. The blue light on the lower left can be a bit distracting at times, but I just put a bit of dark tape to dampen it. It's behind the cover, so it's no big deal.
Summary: Velodyne is among the top runners in mid range audio gear, however it's a brand that leaves quite a bit to be desired in terms of build quality. Having owned a couple variations of the "HLS" series I can tell you that you'll get 2 maybe 3 years worth of moderate use out of these units at best.
Summary: To start off - this is one incredibly powerful sub! As the son of a speaker engineer, you learn to respect something that can produce meaningful bass below 40Hz from an 6.5" effective woofer size in what is essentially a 10" sealed cube.
