I have recently purchased a PSW12 (brand new off of ebay for $200 plus 17 shipping) as an addition to my apartment setup at college. Each of my roomates chose a component to bring (speakers, reciever, etc.) and I decided to purchase a new subwoofer. Having past experience with polk before (my parents basement system is an older Polk system and accompanied by a PSW350 10" 100watt subwoofer that sounds nothing short of amazing), I looked into polk again. After some minor research online and review reading, my choices were pretty much between a Velodyne VRP-1200 and the Polk PSW12. I preferred a 12 inch sub due to lower frequency response as well as the type of music that was going to be blasted on it (Rap, Hip-hip, RnB for parties and such ;)) and narrowed my choices between the two. The two subs are nearly identical except for minor differences in price, frequency response, RMS output and maximum wattage. I am just curious as to all of your guys' experiences with both brandnames and as to whether or not i made the right purchasing decision. I ultimately chose Polk because i trusted the name much more due to past experiences with them(as well as strong advocation of the Polk brandname by my brother, an audiophile, who made the purchasing decision in my parents' system). But, i would like to hear your guys' input on Velodyne (i've heard they're overrated).
I can tell you right now i am very happy with the sub (after it's broken in a lot) and it definately hits very hard (for a 100watt RMS 12 inch sub!) if placed correctly for parties and if placed closest to the left speaker, adds amazing lower frequency for regular listening and tv/movies.
Once again, i just want people's input on Velodyne's lower end subwoofers (VRP series).
