Warranty is an issue when buying from those sellers. Velodyne is somewhat strict with the unauthorized seller policy, I've learned it the hard way.

Its actually cheaper for me (in CA) to buy it from them directly when I use the $10 off, no tax for me + free shipping. $289 OTD.

Anyone have an informed opinion about this vs the Klipsch Reference 12 that is regularly $200ish on special?

I have not tried the Klipsch reference that frys has on sale frequently, but still have a Klipsch SUB12hg from a previous slickdeal about a year ago. I still think the Klipsch SUB12 is THE best home theater sub for $200 or under. Not fantastic for music, but for movies it is outstanding for this price point. I expect the newer Klipsch reference series to sound just as good, or very close to the older Klipsch SUB12 that I have.

The Velodyne impact series on the other hand, is entry level and nothing like most higher priced Velodyne subs. The impact series is simply nothing like the Optimum or older SPL series, for example. I bought an Impact 12 from Velodyne direct about a year ago and can say that I was flat out disappointed when comparing it side by to the Klipsch SUB12hg. It didn't hit anywhere near as hard as the Klipsch for movies or music, had a weak hollow sound to it compared to more substantial subs and just felt light and hollow for a 12" sub. I would not recommend the Velodyne impact series, even at this $300 price point. You can do much better for the $$ with various Klipsch subs or even the BIC PL-200. I do like Velodyne subs, but the price to performance ratio is horrible.

* I just remembered that this Velodyne Impact line is the same as the Chrysalis Starfire subwoofer line, which are also made by Velodyne. Just google Chrysalis subwoofer you will see. The Chrysalis subs (which say made by Velodyne right on the back) have been available for about half these current Impact prices for years. This is NOT a deal.

Feels like it has a deeper bass which is perfect for me.

the second link is actually from velodyne directly on amazon and for $16 cheaper.

I was moreso pointing out that the prices are cheaper on amazon regularly, so i don't see the deal here.

What he means is that the SVS blows the others out of the water... not even a close comparison... If you want serious bass for your home theater and can afford the SVS, then buy the SVS...

I sleep on a bed of pc13-ultras set to low frequency rumbling so I get a massaging effect while I nap.
