Velodyne Acoustics DPS-12
8 Reviews
rating  5 of 5
MSRP 
Description: Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is at the heart of the Digital Power Slot (DPS) Series subwoofers providing less distortion, customized listening modes and the most output possible. All signal processing of this advanced, yet affordable subwoofer is managed digitally, and is controlled with a single touch of a button using the unique front touch-panel. Located on the panel are four convenient presets for Movies, R&B-Rock, Jazz-Classical and Games, as well as volume control and an exclusive Night Mode setting. The top panel of this incredibly elegant-looking subwoofer has 15 coats of high-glass, hand-buffed, black lacquer. The DPS Series consists of the DPS-10 with a 10" forward firing driver (8.2" piston diameter) and the DPS-12 with a 12" forward firing driver (9.9" piston diameter). The DPS Series subs easily outperform other subwoofers in their class in both quality and quantity of bass reproduction.

Bottom Line:   
Great sub one of the best in-home powered subs ive seen yet... i just realised a short time ago that it was actuially just holding me back, as my dual fisher STV-875's outpreform this for a home although the sub is better for larger area's and outdoors... all in all great buy if you get the chance pick one up and hear the beautiful music for yourself :)

P.S.: the 3 star value rating is simply becouse i purchased this within a month of it being made for just a little over 1k, had i paid < $750 it would be 5 star ^^

Bottom Line:   
I just picked up this sub and so far it sounds great with my HK amp. It can handle all the bass I through at it without bottoming oulike my previous 10" Cerwin. I'm still tweaking the settings and playing with the presets but so fa so good.

Bottom Line:   
finally a sub that pounds as hard as the 12" Rockford fosgate in the trunk of my car!
this thing simply rocks, i've tested it out low and max volumes for movies, music, TV shows and video games. Everything just sounds so nice with this sub its definately worth the money.

the design and box its built in looks very nice. Amplifier is high quality.

I previously bought the 12" JBL sub for $50 cheaper than this one. I took it back in a few days to try out this one instead b/c it was on sale. what a difference! this sub won hands down it can't be beat. No other sub for this price an compare.

The downside is the volume control is lacking a knob. the useless 2button volume controls are garbage and definately not sensitive enough.

This sub fills a larger room and completely blows up a small rm enough to rattle dishes in my kitchen off the shelf.

I live in the country and neighbours are a good distance away. If your planning on buying this id keep the volume down on this one.

Bottom Line:   
Originally wanting the JBL 12" model but was out of stock so they sold me the DPS-12 for the same price! saved about $100.

This sub is amazing lots of power to play with and with the monster THX sub cable i got for free it sounds clean and very deep.

Ive tested it to almost full capacity and it still sounds undestorted, Even now after placing it in a room with ceiling tiles that absorb most of the bass it still sounds amazing!

I definately reccomend this sub, For the price its the best deal out there.
