Velodyne DD15 - worth repairing the plate amp?
@jomolu Something simple to try would be to rotate the driver 180 degrees, mindful of over tightening the fasteners. Even with no improvement it can hurt.    
Velodyne DD15 - worth repairing the plate amp?
Thanks, I need to read the manual (already downlaoded a while ago). I believe the DD manual discusses sub positioning on an earlier page. This "TIP" on page 23 is incredibly important. It provides for the optimum sub to room interface which res... 
Subwoofer suggestion
@kraftwerkturbo   Would 2 subs placed close to the main speakers also allow higher low pass setting? Thinking using very small satelites that struggle at higher output levels and 80 Hz. They might? The middle of the room next to the speaker loc...

@emailists  Are you saying there is new firmware for the DDplus series?  Can you elaborate? I don't know. My DD Plus are 2.2.3. You might try an email to Velodyne Acoustics GmbH. I fixed a remote control by removing the batteries, carefully op... 
Considering a Second Subwoofer for the Front
Hasn't Salk closed? With a four sub array I can't imagine your shooting for stereo. The mono room lock should be amazing. I did it using three different asymmetrically positioned subs and it worked just fine. If the master sub has remote control... 
Towers with built in subs vs separate subs
fuzztone is exactly right.  Ported or sealed no amount of room optimization, correction or equalization will ameliorate the sound stage optimized null location of your speakers and allow the ability of -3dB subwoofers their full potential for roo...

SVS or REVEL Subwoofer
drlou77 I don’t’ doubt your description of that comparison. Sadly, it’s now quite obvious how it came to be. Please read REL’s actual free trial policy from the link below. @drlou77 If I don’t like it he will give me a credit towards another mo... 
SVS or REVEL Subwoofer
@drlou77  Bought the REL S/510 today.  Thanks for all your help! You helped yourself. After which ever Velodyne you were using you"ll see soon enough. Is there a REL free trial period? All the best.   
SVS or REVEL Subwoofer
SVS is primarily sold directly from the manufacturer. They can easily be adjusted and or positioned to sound less desirable than a REL. The REL is a -6dB sub-bass speaker equipped with only basic crossover, 2 position phase switch and volume. Bec... 
Distributed Bass Array Speaker Placement
Your speakers appear to be well engineered. Personally, I'd lose the CR-1 and run them full range and find a sub or DSP that can daisy chain and manage the crossover within the subs. I don't think there are any two DSP programs alike. You may be s... 
LIST ALL YHE SPEAKERS YOU HAVE OWNED THEN TILL NOW!
@dorkwad  Your handle takes me back. Like minds? High School in the 60’s, instead of calling someone a dork my friends would say, ‘nah, you’re not a dork. Then there was the fictitious character, Wadslow Wadington which conveniently morfed into ... 
Low cost subwoofer upgrade
Had you used one of the Rythmik's to preform the subwoofer crawl to locate your rooms standing wave bass modes to properly position them in, you might of arrived. Your conclusion using the Rythmik's would suggest your front wall location is a room...
