This piano black gloss subwoofer is in excellent condition. The finish is flawless aside from some light swirl marks that usually occur with gloss finish. Can't see them unless you get really close and have a lot of light shining on it. It sounds absolutely phenomenal and is super responsive but sadly my new smaller home won't accommodate this beast. I am the original owner and the amp was replaced by Velodyne a couple of years ago so the electronics are very new! This thing is very heavy so pickup is preferred but I am willing to ship it since I still have all original packaging. I am located near Baton Rouge, LA. I may even be able to deliver it between here and Houston, TX for a fee. PayPal add 3%. I have a long history of excellent feedback on eBay.


If nothing but the best will do, you need the Velodyne DD-18. This Direct Drive subwoofer provides reference-quality bass reproduction in a package that won't take up your whole living room. The Class D amplifier pushes 1250W of steady power through the 18" cone. But for all the bumps in the night in your favorite horror flick, a massive 3,000W of dynamic power is available. With a 14Hz to 120Hz frequency response, the DD-18 can handle even the most earth-shakingly low tones. But being low and loud isn't enough to make bass great. That's why the DD-18 features 0° to 180° phase control in 1° increments, variable high pass crossovers, adjustable polarity, and less than 0.5% THD. For sound that can't be beat, this is the sub to choose.

What's Included?

Included is the DD-18 black gloss subwoofer, original box and packing materials, power cord, owner's manual, remote control, and Digital Drive accessory kit (calibration mic and cables).
