Is that a word? A coworked has a Velodyne Sub that has been in his garage for about 3 years. I live in South Florida, so it has never been very cold, but it sure spent a lot of time in head and humidity. Do you think it has degraded much? I want to listen to what a good sub sounds like in my house. I don't want to go through the hastle of buying one and returning it. I have the sub that came with my Onkyo HT-S760. That is the only one that I have heard. To me, it is fine. I moved it to the back corner near the couch. The furniture shakes, plenty of volume for me, etc. But I would like to educate myself. I really want the small SVS powered tube but I want to make sure that I won't regret dropping that kind of money on a sub. OK, I want the big one, but that will never get approved without some really BIG jewlery for her.
