I wouldn’t bother with that Velodyne. It’s a very old model—$300 feels spendy to me.
Here are data-bass’s output measurements of the Velodyne EQ Max 15, which is the DEQ-R’s successor:Velodyne DEQ-15R
- 15" driver
- 750W (RMS/continuous) amp
- 23-120Hz +/-3dB
HSU VTF-2 MK5
- 12" driver
- 350W (RMS/continuous) amp
- +/-2dB extension to 22Hz (2 ports open) or 16Hz (1 port open)
- is half the price of the HSU;
- should have more overall output; and
- has built-in, 5-band EQ w/ auto-cal plus user-selectable presets.
- is brand-new will full warranty;
- is a well-rated performer in its price class; and
- offers tuning flexibility.
For $250 more than the Velodyne - and ~$60 less than the HSU - the well-rated Monoprice Monolith 10" is worth considering:
- 10" driver
- 500W (RMS/continuous) amp
- +0/-6dB (+/-3dB) extension to 18Hz (ported mode, extended EQ) or 20Hz (ported mode, THX EQ)
Ummm...okay.sk373 said:… I see no good reason to buy it at the offered price. IMHO, $300 is simply too much for a 10+ yr old model with that level of performance.
Did you check the links?Ummm...okay.

Okay.… It is clear that the VTF-2 MK5 is the stronger sub, and it’s not that close. Factor in the age of the Velodyne, and I just don’t think it’s a good buy for $300. …
