    Hello, I ran across a deal on a pair of CS-Ultra subs with original Amp. They want less than I can sell my pair of Velodyne ULD 15 Series II subs for. But I am not sure if it is an upgrade or not. How good were the CS-Ultras?
    Thanks

    If you can't get ahold of a SB12-NSD, then get it's closer equivalent of the SB-2000.

    This looks identical to the Ultra 16 except for the smaller driver. I wonder if this is in response to the Ultra 16s not moving as well as they hoped? I mean, it's not like there are a lot of people who can handle an Ultra 16 by themselves... though I wouldn't mind trying :)
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    Just picked up an SB 2000 from Kerry and got time to play around today. Most of you know I was looking for something on the musical side to blend with the ERA D-5'S.

    I can tell you, this bad boy is quick and definitely not your one note thumping subwoofer. Blends in perfect with the speaks, you don't even know it's on, but it is, just doin' it's thing. Movies also sounded great with it, no bloat, no weird lower bass notes. It just hits hard when called on, and is subtle when it has to be while never drawing attention to itself.

    I have it hooked up by the line levels from the pre, out to the amp. Receivers front left and right preouts go to an input on the pre. This way I can use the sub for either HT or music, and keep the receiver out of the equation for music. Best of both worlds in one system, what's not to like.

    Thanks again to Kerry for hooking me up. A gentleman and a scholar he is.

    Great sub. The 2000 subs are solid and with a very fast response. Great sub for the money with a real 17hz response. Going duals is amazing.

    I use a single SB2K for music between my Ushers and agree with Tony that it blends and disappears into the music and when you get it dialed in takes over the LF's like a champ. I have mine hooked up thru the HT bypass of my p5 in my mancave ht rig so it can serve both music and ht as well.

    Really good value too.

    Having never heard the velodynes and only checked out pictures of them...i suspect a pair of CS ultras would absolutely be an improvement.
