I'll let friends and family know, great little sub for 180 that will fit many rooms (non-intrusive size).
The DEQ-8R has some really nice features too - remote, auto EQ and night mode - that will likely be useful to alot of people.
I used to have the Velodyne VMS-8, which a Velodyne rep stated (here at AVS) was the same sub as the Minivee-8, just an older version in a different cabinet. The Photon-8 appears to be identical to the VMS-8.... so it seems one would basically get a Minivee-8 with different aesthetics for $300.
The VMS-8 was the best small sub I've heard - great SQ and surprising extension given the cabinet size. Other small sub's I've heard/owned are the Klipsch XW-300d, Energy ESW-M6, Mirage Prestige S8, and a few cheaper ones not worth mentioning. The driver in the VMS/Photon/Minivee is a beast for an 8" driverEdited by alphaiii - 11/28/13 at 9:03pm
