    Thumbs up Velodyne cht 12 versus Polk audio 505

    My room is 16x20x8 high...my local Future shop has the velodyne cht 12 but not the polk audio 505 sub...but said they can order them in. I want good strong bass... the RMS specs on the velodyne are 165 watt and the polk audio 505 are 300 watts RMS...will this make much of a difference? I was told that the velodyne was a very good sub. Just maybe one of you guys have heard a comparison on both of these subs...your replys would be greatly appreciated...Thanks!

    Neither?

    www.hsuresearch.com

    www.adireaudio.com (I think thats their website)

    Polk makes OK subwoofers, and so does Velodyne, for your money -- them companies above will suit you better.

    If I had a choice, I'd have to go with the Velodyne, well actually possibly the Polk. Not sure which one is more accurate.....

    I think the 505 hits a little lower better. However the CHT12 and CHT15 can take a lot of abuse.

    I am guessing that you are in Canada since you were at Future Shop. If I was you I would buy a Paradigm subwoofer. That's what I did. I was looking at the Velodyne CHT-12 for $750 CDN but ended up with my beloved Paradigm PW-2200 V.2 for just a little more money, and I think the PW-2200 would destroy the CHT-12 in almost every way, especially for the money. I heard the CHT-12 and was not all that impressed.

    If you want to spend a little less than I did, you can look at the PW-2100 or even the PS Series or PDR Series. The Paradigm's are just a exceptional value for those in Canada.

    Where about are you located?

    I agree with Glemay, Paradigm is a no brainer if you live in Canada. The PDR12 is $590, the ps1000 is $690 and ps1200 is $790. The actual price you would pay is at least $40-50 less. Go to www.Paradigm.ca and find a local dealer. You should at least demo them and any others they have.
