Default Opinions - Velodyne DPS Series Subwoofers Vs Yamaha Subwoofers?

I have been recently researching subwoofers to add to my system. I already own a yamaha yst-sw215 (nice but just not enough), and was looking for more. My first thought was to buy the yamaha yst-sw315 and run both subs together. It could be nice and if I get one of the new RX-V_63 series recievers I could be set (dual sub pre-outs). However, I am doubtful of the yst-sw315's ability to really perform that much better with my 215. Yamaha also likes to fluff actual specifications.

To get more to the point, I found that the Velodyne DPS-10 and DPS-12 have been discontinued. I am really interested into the DPS-10. The price is perfectly in my budget, and the reviews have been very positive. I have had some experience with velodyne subs before (DLS-4000R), and I am pretty sure that one great velodyne will beat two good yamahas. The DLS-4000R btw is unbelievable.

I just wanted to know if anyone who owns either the velodyne or the yamaha subs I have metioned above would recommend them, and which would be a better decision. I am definately leaning towards the velodyne's. So let me know what you think.

Price Summary:
Yamaha YST-SW315 = $125 - 175
Velodyne DPS-10 = $199 - 215
Velodyne DPS-12 = $299 - 315
