Summary: I purchased the VX-10 about a year ago. I'm not an audiophile technically speaking because I cannot afford to be an audiophile, but I do enjoy quality sound. When I purchased this sub, I knew it wasn't going to deliver the rich, deep, accurate bass response that a much more expensive sub would achieve. I was just hopeful that, for the money, it would provide adequate sound until I could afford something better. My first impression was very good.
Summary: I owned this sub for a year or so after becoming frustrated getting a down firing (higher end) subwoofer to sound right in a large, rather odd-shaped room. Having the rear port and being able to control its reflections to ideally tweak the phasing with larger mains was my reasoning behind this selection. This is a very satisfying subwoofer, although bass extension isn't spectacular and it produces a fair amount of port noise on the lowest notes.
Summary: Bought this little guy with an employee discount @ "Lie's" Electronics over 3 years ago. Paired with a Denon AV unit, has been set up in a few different enviroments, always isolated from the ground and placed in multiple locations until optimum sound was achieved. I thought the 100w was going to be lacking, but I'm looking for a quality "punchy" type of bass, not some numbnut driving down the street, bumping whatever eMpTyV's serving to the masses, rattling every panel...
Summary: I have one of these sitting in a closet somewhere or did my wife throw it out. This thing stopped working after light use in about 6 months. Velodyne is a respected name in the subwoofer industry but this thing does not cut it . Good velodyne subs cost a grand and then some. Quality control is sacrificed on the cheaper models. Also the power rating is misleading. Your sub has to be able to handle more than 100 watts especially when paired with a good quality amp.
Summary: Velodyne VX-10 are recommended if your looking for value and performance,Have this for almost a year and it's awesome,clean & smooth bass,looks like an 8"sub,construction heavy and solid, characteristics of a quality subwoofer.Be a proud owner of this pocket thunders from Velodyne!!!!!
Summary: I love this thing. Very true sound - not just the "thump, thump" you get from other units. I thought the pricing was very reasonable. You could spend alot more, but I don't see the point for a normal sized room. Truthfully, I do have the thing capped out, but it fills the 20'x15' room nicely and rattles everything that's not nailed down. You would need one with more volume for a bigger room.
Summary: I give this one star because you can't give it a no star. It doesn't work. No base at all. I have a pioneer elite VSX82TXS and this sub produces zero base. I've had two Yamahas and they worked. Stupid me, this was cheap, I bought it and well, you get what you pay for.
