Home Theater Forum members, I need your advice... Unfortunately, my Velodyne FSR-15 (purchased 6/6/98 - in a city I no longer live in) has an unstable accelerometer. Once the pride and joy of my home theater system, it has now been reduced to a really heavy paperweight! I spent months saving my money to purchase this back in '98 and can still remember firing up my DTS laserdisc of Jurassic Park and listening to the T-Rex two step for the first time. Anyway, last November after 4 years of excellent service, during one of my many viewings of the lobby shooting scene of The Matrix, my accelerometer went buggy and I was treated to what I now know is called "motorboating". VERY unpleasant! I sent the driver off to be repaired and $175 later I had my subwoofer back. Well, the problem has returned. So, I am now faced with the following repair bill: $600 for a brand new driver and possibly either $150 to repair the amp or $350 to replace it (if the amp is causing/contributing to the problem). So, I am either looking at $600 best case or $750 worst case or even $950 absolute worst case. And this doesn't even include shipping! This means that my total cost of ownership stands at $1,825 (original cost of sub and first repair bill) plus this new repair for a grand total of potentially anywhere between $2,425 to $2,775. Velodyne will not even give me a discount or some type of rebate even though the first repair didn't take! I even followed all of their 'recommendations' - setting all of my NHT SuperOnes to 'large' vs 'small' and reducing the level of my sub to 50 db even though my other 5 channels are set to 75 db. I didn't buy an FSR-15 to have to walk on eggs shells; I bought it to rock the foundation of my house. So now I am faced with a decision... 1) Suck up the repair costs, or 2) Walk away for something new. This is really a hard decision. Even though I have had major problems with my FSR-15 and have encountered HORRIBLE customer service, this mated so well to my NHT's and it really does (when it worked) rock the house. But, since I have been having problems, I have looked into various other subwoofers out there and have found one that I think will do the job nicely. The HSU Research VTF-3 for $849. What to do? Repair the FSR-15, buy the VTF-3 (or another make/model), or something else? Any advice would be welcome. Thank-you in advance.
