Just ordered a Velodyne Optimum 12 subwoofer. Anyone have one? How do you like it? Compare favorably to Hsu,Svs, and Rythmik subs?

I hope you got a really good price on the Optimum 12 because it can't begin to keep up with the SVS PB-12 Plus in the 20-40 Hz octave.


S&V tested them both and the Velo had its maximum output of 114.2 at 63 Hz and only averaged 95 db from 20-40 Hz.


The PB-12 Plus had its maximum of 114.8 db at 20 Hz, and output betwen 20-80 Hz was between 108.7 db and 114.8 db.


Very different. The Optimum is more like a "music" sub, while the PB-12 Plus is more like an "HT" sub.


Best Regards

Well that's a nice way to fart on someone's new purchase.

Agreed, but I was thinking wouldn't you post this kind of thread and ask those questions BEFORE you made your purchase?

Maybe he can cancel his order



Not only that, he asked how it compared to HSU, SVS, and Rythmik so now he knows.
