Default Velidyne VX11

Hey everyone. Im thinking about purchasing this sub, since on their website there is a special on them 2 for $229, which makes them about $115 each.

Does anyone know how good this sub is? Also the newer model is suppose to be the impact 10 i believe. I will be using this with my nht superzero 2.0 that is hooked up to my pc.

So let me know what you guys think. Thanks

Two subs for $230. Don't expect superior sound but considering your existing speakers it's probably a very good match. Amazon users give the subs 4+ stars. You have nothing to lose.
Spending more would be a waste.
Go for it.

a 12 in sub is just too much bass for me. Im not really a bass head and I just want enough bass in my music and movies just for me to feel satisfied. So I figured an 8 in or 10 in sub would suit my needs perfectly fine.

Most importantly I would rather have the sub match up with my speakers decently. But I suppose I will go witht he velodyne sub

There is no such thing as too much bass. You can turn down the gain on a sub and you are supposed to calibrate your sub with your mains anyway. Those Velodynes are very low end compared to the Klipsch on newegg.
