I think I need therapy, my Velodyne SPL 12 (circa 2002) died Friday night. It is displaying a horrifying death rattle that I fear cannot be undone. It was a big purchase for me, and I'm a little shocked that it ended like this. I watch a lot of concert DVD's, such as U2 at Slaine Castle or Rush R30. I also do a lot of gaming on the PS3, so the sub gets quite a work out. It was 750 watts RMS and 1500 dynamic. My receiver is the Denon 3803. Nothing spectacular but very satisfying. What is out there that is comparable or even an upgrade. Will an 8" sub with more RMS wattage sound as good or better? I noticed a new line from Velodyne called Optimum, any reviews on these? A minimal footprint would be ideal, with a price range from $500.00 to $800.00. Thanks in advance for any helpful information you can provide to a newbie to the forum.
