I am looking at both sub options, unless you guys can suggest something better in a similar price category.

Probably 75% of my listening will be music (all types) with 25% movies. The sub will be working with M22s FL&R and VP100 center.

As usual, any advice and input is appreciated.

Thanks a lot!

Once again, I am going to bang the SVS PB12-NSD drum :).

EDIT: Although, with mostly music, you may be better off with the 10" version. http://www.svsound.com/products-sub-box-10nsd.cfm

I'm pretty sure the SVS is over his budget if he's looking at the EP175, Tater. There's shipping on that too.

It's only $40 more, before shipping which I guess he has to pay on either one. I just edited my post to include the 10", which is probably better for music, anyway, and that one's $85 less.

Since you're in the States you've got several choices, including Tater's recommendation of SVS. You might also want to check out an LFM-1 or LFM-1 Plus from Outlaw Audio , or check out the many offerings from Edesign Audio according to your budget.

I'm a little flexible on price, so $100 either way is fine. I'd rather invest an additional few dollars if makes the difference. That's why I was considering the Velodyne. But I have to say, based on so many posts on this and other forums, the SVS subs do look appealing. Am I really getting so much more bang for the buck with SVS vs. Velodyne?

I'm pretty certain the consensus is that the SVS is a much better sub overall than the Velodyne, although you need to be comparing specific models obviously.

Velodyne makes some very good stuff, but you have to spend a lot of money to get it. Their entry level stuff is generally beaten by the "online" brands simply because doing business that way is obviously cheaper. Companies like Axiom, SVS, HSU all make excellent product. It may have been on this board someone used the analogy: You can pick between an Audi, a BMW and a Lexus, and you're not really going to make a bad choice. Same deal here.

I use the SVS and have been happy with it. I do not doubt for a second the Axiom is a good sub, it just seems your money goes a touch further elsewhere when you're talking subs.
