Why do you say that?
I personally like the variable tuning aspect of the VTF-15H. It allows you to configure and tune the subwoofer very easily based on your listening preferences (1 port open for max extension, 2 ports open for max output, two ports closed for sealed mode, along with changing the "Q" tuning of the sub with a simple dial).
The Velodyne has built in EQ which is nice though, but there are EQ options out there (such as Audyssey which you may already have built into your receiver) or something like an antimode or minidsp.
