The DD10+ is still a current model so I'm sure parts are readily available for a needed, relatively inexpensive, repair.

BTW, your sub has an "IR Input" on the rear for adding an external IR which you might even have laying about the house as often cable companies give them to you for free in case you can't place the cable box in line of sight and have to run the external IR repeater to it via a 3 foot cable.

So that is what I'd look at next.
Afraid I don't have an external IR. However, my dealer is willing to give me a loan sub in case a repair is needed. Great service....and happy to enjoy our HT after 6 weeks of outage due to Epson repair (holiday season turned out not to be the best of time).

Indeed Won't be a velodyne but obviously a no brainer to accept this kind offer. Also an opportunity to see how a more reasonably priced sub performs in my room...tech evolved (i bought the velo upon release for stereo. Nowadays used in the ht and my Anthem avm60 ARC2 does all room correction).

The DD10+ is going to be might hard to beat for less than $1000.

But yeah, when my DD15 eventually gives up the ghost I'm going to buy a Rhythmik to replace it for around $1200.

Had it repaired a few months back for $675 but it was worth it as I should get another 10 years out of it, (fingers crossed).

As I'm in Belgium, the current list price for a dd10 plus is 4,200 Eur. Yet, I still consider it one of my best purchases lol.

Unfortunately, I agree with you to stay away from Velodyne.

This once proud company practically "owned" the subwoofer category.

Its customer service was superb.

Today, try to find its phone number; try to have an e-mail answered; and if you find the phone number, try to get messages returned.

Velodyne is now more interested and involved in the business of working with Ford on self-driving cars!

So much for those who spent a lot of money and supported this now ghost of a company.

Blown sub?

I have a MiniVee that's been working fine for many years, but this weekend I flipped off a circuit breaker without turning off the sub first. When it came back on, it now goes very slowly between very soft and very loud, without any real Sub signal hitting it (I leave it in Auto mode). Any suggestions on how bad this might be, or if I may have fried it?

My DD-18 had a bad connection internally on the cable that goes from the IR window and ends up in a plastic plug thats plugged into the main board.
It had a a couple of wires in that plug with a bad connection. I used a small narrow flat screwdriver to push said cables better into the connector.
Easy fix. Disconnect power, screw out the amp backplate and you should see the cable in question.
Did it myself in 15 mins.

Velodyne wanted 1000,- Euro to repair...

Call or e'mail your nearest Veloldyne repair center and they will ask you to remove the amp and send it to them for an estimate.

The repair might be more than just buying one of these unless you must have the teeny tiny footprint.

Minivees seem to be around $200 or so on e'bay.

I ended up selling my DD10 for $600, not a bad return for an 11 year old sub. I really liked it a lot but started to get a little concerned about getting it repaired or serviced living on the east coast in Virginia if something happened to it. I just decided to cut my loses and move on.

Hi,
I have a DLS-3750R which needs a new driver (woofer cone is ripped up). Is the driver in the CT-10 or CHT-10 interchangeable?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I made a separate thread on this, but was advised to ask in here.

My home theater setup was currently is using two Velodyne 12'' subs. I have an F-1200 and an FSR-12. Very similar subs, They sounded great together. I picked them up from separate Craigslist sellers a few years back. They have been working great for two years with the excepting of the FSR making a popping noise on really low notes. every once and a while.

Last week the FSR was making some weird noises and I noticed it was very hot, almost too hot to touch. I pulled the grille off and the driver was going in and out constantly, even with no signal going to it. I'm guessing the servo system is toast.

Saturday night the F-1200 popped and the green light started flashing. It was really hot also. I let it cool down and turned it back on and it was fine the rest of the night. Same thing happened on Sunday. I'm guessing this sub is on its way out also.

I was looking at new subs, SVS, Hsu, Klipsh and all the others. I am also considering a DIY sub since I'm pretty handy and it sounds fun.

I was going to build a 15'' or 18'' but I just got the idea that I can probably reuse the Velodyne boxes with new drivers and amps since aesthetically they are in mint condition.

My question is, what driver and plate amp do you guys recommended. I can easily modify the back of the boxes to fit pretty much any amp in there.

My room is 24'x12'x8' with the system on the interior 24' wall. Speakers are a pair of Klipsch KG 5.5, KV3 center and some 8'' in wall surrounds.

Thanks in advance.

I'd ask in the DIY section.

I think Rhythmik sells servo drivers and amps.
