Just thought I would get some advise before I purchase it. I currently have a velodyne dls5000r, and I enjoy it but find It a bit boomy but that may be where it is placed as I have only 1 spot for it as I live in an apartment (basement). Now I found a paradigm 3400 for $500 used but fairly new, now where i live I could get that for my sub if I sold it. So really it's not going to cost me anything but I'm just curious if this will be a step forward or should I wait till next winter and spend $1000 on a new one. Now I plan on buying a house hopefully later this year so I will be able to use the sub all the time. So what do you guys think?

I've never heard any of Velodyne's subs so I can't really speak much on that. What I can say is I have dual Paradigm
DSP-3400's and I love them. I have a small room and they absolutely dominate it. One is a couple years old and the other.is.less than a year and I have had no.issues.

at this point i think i may just wait, and save up for later this year and see what i can get. Im in canada so not sure on shipping but looking at HSU or rythmik. Thanks. I may actually go hear one on saturday if i get a chance. How well did you find 1 to work with only 300 watts?

For the money you can do better than the Paradigm subs. I to am looking at a Rythmik F15 or an HSU VTF3 MK4. I'm in the same boat and saving for a better sub to replace my Paradigm PS1200.

it sold anyways, but i think i will be happier for sure. Im actually looking at those 2 subs also. I guess it will come down to shipping and boarder fees for me though
