    We recently acquired a model HGS-10 GB in non-working
    order. We found a blown fuse, which we replaced with
    the correct 12A Slo-Blow. The sub now powers up,
    however it is giving some feedback with no input
    hooked up, and with input the sound quality is poor
    and intermittent.

    We checked the driver and noticed that the cone does
    not move at all front or back when carefully pressed
    on. Should the cone move like a standard subwoofer or
    is this normal for the unit?

    Also, we measured the DC resistance of the driver and
    got 2.5 Ohms. Is this correct?

    Please let me know what the problem might be, as we
    would really like to see what this first class
    subwoofer is capable of.

    Thank you for your time. :lease:

    The American equivalent of this forum is AVS and they have quite an active Velodyne support forum where questions are answered by Velodyne engineers. If no-one here can help you have a look on your side of the pond here

    Redline are the UK distributors of Velodyne and their website can be found at http://www.red-line.co.uk
    Velodyne have recently relaunched the HGS subwoofers, so there should be plenty of help and advice available to get yours up and running :thumbsup:

    This is normal for a servo-assisted sub like yours :thumbsup:
