I am considering one of these subs to go with my system, which includes all Mirage Omni speakers (front mains, center, and rear surrounds). I can find both at a similar price point (new or used) and I'd like to know which one is superior in terms of tight, clear, crisp bass - for music and HT. The Velodyne is for sale brand new w/ full warranty for $279.00 and the Hsu is for sale used for $275 without warranty. Guys on other forums seem to prefer the Hsu, but Velodyne also makes quality subs and the room I'll use is rather small and carpeted - 12x15 feet with 8' flat ceiling. Thanks. I need some advice fast before these subs sell out.
You should check into SVS Subwoofers. I have one and can't believe how GREAT this thing is for the price. I hooked up a friend with the smallest cylinder sub they sell and it ROCKS. Just my opinion, dont waste your time with anything else.
