    Looks like a lateral move. Your Velo ought to sound just as good, if not better.

    Those klipsh subs are mostly all rumble and no "real" base. I almost bought one about a year ago but they are not crisp or clear. Please do not buy one. I dont know if I would even use one if I got it for half price.

    Actually the Sub 10 and 12 are a big improvement from the KSW series. I was impressed with the Sub 10 in my room for a couple of weeks. That being said, I think it's a lateral move too.

    if i did buy it i would run both, not replace the velo. am i wasting money if i buy it?

    i guess my real question is how much benifet will i gain from running a second sub?

    Adding a 2nd Sub will give you more headroom, due to less strain on the amps. It will also give you up to a 6db gain in output, if co-located. If not, then placement and cancellation issues are problematic. Once setup correctly, you'll have an output bonus and should get a more even bass response. Could be tricky, could be fairly easy.

    I co-located a 2nd XSub this weekend, probably picked up a couple of hz in extention and the output gain. Very nice.
