DLS-4000R

Absolutely Love it. For low end, I always test using a Soul Coughing CD as their bassist used an upright, which provides tremendous thump. Gives a great idea of how the sub will handle normal low end.

The EQ functions are fantastic, I've found that the Jazz setting is the best for music (IMO, of course). I typically leave that on for movies, but if the low end is lacking, I switch it over.

I haven't found anything that is beyond what this sub can do (yet) during movies or music. It may not blow the house down like other subs, but it can rattle with the best.

I recently posted a thread on "which subwoofer should I choose" I was down to 2 that I was torn between, Velodyne DLS 5000R or Klipsch Ref series 12in, well I went with the Velodyne but the seller contacted me yesterday to tell me that the model DLS 5000R was no longer available,so he offered me the newer series for $100 more DEQ-15R,(750 watts RMS, 1500 watts Peak) I think it was a pretty good deal,do any of you have this model or have any comments on it?

I haven't heard this model, but it's a step up from the DLS line, so that sounds like a great deal. it's $150 cheaper than I can find anywhere on the net.

Have the DSP-10 in my HT... Very respectable sub, have not had any issues with it so far, looking to move on up to the DEQ-15R... I have given it a listen and it sounded so clean.

I also have the DPS-10. Do you leave it on the Movie setting? Also, what do you set the low pass dial at in the back of the sub?

I do leave it on the "Movie" setting for most applications, sometimes for music I do enjoy the "Jazz" setting... When I go home I'll check the low-pass dial to see where it sits.

DLS-4000R here. Very tight and responsive with zero distortion. Perfect for movies and music.

When i put mine on direct i get a lot of noise from the sub so i oppted for the 80 settings. To add to the topic the dps 10 is a very good subwoofer i'm thinking about getting another one or i might get the dps 12.

In both the receiver and the actual "blinking light" control on the sub, where do you keep the volume of your DPS-10 at? Right now the receiversetting is at 0db (goes from -12/+12), but the blinking light is hard to gauge. I love the sub, but really hate the method of volume control.

I believe the YPAO set my sub to -12, but I found I had to crank up the volume on the sub then... so I have the receiver set at -7 and my sub on +36...

and yourself?

I hate the volume control as well, hard to hear the difference while keeping track of number of blinks to find the best setting.

How do you know it is +36? Do you know what it goes up to?

I think both volumes for my sub are in the middle-ish.

In the manual it says how to interpret the number of blinks... slow bloinks are 10,20,30 etc... the quicker blinks are 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9....

therefore 3 slow blinks and six quick blinks meane the vol. is set at 36

I have a Velodyne DD-12. I calibrated it using the Velodyne calibration program and then calibrated the room using Audyssey MultEQ Pro (an upgrade to my Integra DTC-9.8). This tamed the LFE too much. I then defeated the EQ and adjusted the subwoofer filters (subsonic, contour, low-pass, etc). The LFE, especially the low end is extremely good now (for the size on my room).

Further, my friend and I used RoomEQ Wizard from Home Theater Shack to measure and help dial in my room.

I am very happy with my subwoofer for the moment.
