i'm not a fanatic when it comes to sound quality. i do enjoy a good thump when it comes to movies, though, but i don't want to spend that much on a powered sub. i am not loyal to any particular brand, i have pioneer speakers, pioneer reciever and sony tv with a panasonic dvd changer. i had a jbl psw d110, but it bit the dust, so i was looking into the velodyne vx10 and the jbl e150p. my last sub lasted 6 years, and i enjoyed the feeling the rumble of the skulls falling in lotr, and the helicopter blades in black hawk down. so i don't mind getting another jbl. however, i also read that velodyne makes only subs, so they should be good at what they are doing, and maybe it's time for me to give someone else a try? anyone familiar with those 2 models and can vouch for them or of another brand that is similar to the under 200usd price? 150w, 10in powered is good enough for me.
The Hsu STF1 is far less than the price you have stated. And trust me this ain't an SVS, Hsu forum as I just sent an SVS back to manufacturer a couple of weeks ago. As you said bud It was like parking the SUV(oh you said Daewoo) in the living room.
