Velodyne DLS-4000R vs. BIC America F-12 - straight trade
Hey you awesome geniuses...
Just upgraded some speakers. I've got a nice to me 5.1 with Energy speakers - Connoisseur series towers for R/L and there larger center. I'm currently running a Bic America F-12. Works pretty well I think but I have the option of doing a straight across swap with a Velodyne DLS-4000R. I get to keep 1 of the 2 subs.
They both seem like pretty decent subs. I know Velo has a long pedigree. Room is mid sized. ~14'x18'. 9 ft ceilings.
For movies. Does anyone have any thoughts here?
