There have been a few (to my mind fairly valid) posts around these parts concerning Velodyne mania. It would appear that the Speakers and Subwoofers forum has become the kind of place that the owner of a non-Velodyne subwoofer fears to tread. Personally I think there are two reasons why this has occurred: One, these units are actually pretty good. They perform to their specifications, and their specifications are world beating. Two, Uncle Eric get's them to the addicted masses cheap. Here's my challenge: Sub manufacturers - more competition please. We want subs of this calibre or better, at all price ranges. Dealers - we want the kind of service that Eric provides. There are wealthy/obsessed people on these forums, and they want to give you their money if you can convince them your products and service deserve it. Then and only then will people stop talking about Velodyne's subwoofers, and we will find something else to talk about. I'd like to make it clear that I have no affiliation with either Eric or Velodyne, nor do I presently own any of their products.
