simpley the best
I have never heard a better sub, DD-18+ sounds perfect for music and movies. The whole house is shaking but never in a wrong way. I am very impressed. Thank you Velodyne
Not Over Kill
I have been living with this sub for 3 years. And it sounds great with my 802D's and 805D's. Sometimes you want the earth to shake and this meats the bill. No regrets!
Very clean and clear low frequency output. You can feel as well as hear it.
I have owned a Velodyne subwoofer since approx 1995. At that time I purchased a Velodyne ULD 15. I was so impressed with the ULD 15 at the time. . As a side line I sold the on consignment my ULD 15 for about ¾ what I paid for it. When I purchased a new home with a much larger room in 1998, I purchased the FSR 18 This sub was fantastic. It was much more powerful and could fill that room with powerful clean low frequencies. I used the FSR 18 without problems until January 2012, a total of 14 years. At that time I ran into problems with the FSR 18 that could not be repaired. There is only so much time a company can support old hardware. I then purchased a DD 18+. Hardly a day goes by when I am not amazed at the performance of this sub. Some of the sound tracks on the new movie THX sound formats are unbelievable. You can feel the sound as well as hear it. I also just love the room calibration system that comes with this sub.
blow you away
I had older sub from velodyne f series and it was uncontrolled and bloated whoa this new sub is unreal how clean and control it is. final a 18" that you have full control and it is the cleanest sub I ever heard.
Having the old HGS 18 II, I bought the new DD plus 18 hoping for improvement. To my surprise I was not able to get close to the bass of the old HGS. Series of malfunctions. no deep bass and no punch. Disappointing. I am using the old Velodyne one and sold the new one.
