Labeling the unit as 'fair' condition as it tends to require the volume to be set louder than others of the same model (I used to own 4 of these). It otherwise functions per normal. It just needs the volume turned up a little more to be as effective but still operates fine but I can't rule out it may not have any possible issues that may need tending to one day or for repair.


It's otherwise in great condition for their period and includes the full accessories kit, the built-in Texas instruments software all functions for complete/near infinite calibration combinations and presets that can tweaked individually and stored, such as volume, EQ, X-Over/HPF/LPF, phase, polarity and their exclusive 'tightness' function of servo-gain control. 


Also, if you had a DD10, 12, or 15 which operated perfectly, you could always refit your amp module into this and you have the 18-inch driver to now work with.


Price is absolute final.

@Neilsy I dont know if you know this, but if you ship the amp off to EBC electronics in the us you would get this fixed for their fixed cost repair and have it back. for $500 you'd have it sounding as good as new. this price of yours is crazy low ! these are multi thousand sub woofers... certainly yi cant think of anything remotely close for the money


if indeed someone buys this these are amazing things and you would have a pretty amazing bargain here for the money. if you want sub fixed locally velodyne also have a local appointed agent or you can lodge a tech support via their website.... you can buy new parts or have new parts fitted.

Hey @betty boop

I didn't know of them - and my work does international shipping constantly so that's possibly a good option. A big thanks for the tip!

I also haven't been able to determine it is the amp, as it doesn't seem to fail in any other way.  Doesn't appear to be a physical input failed either.

its one of symptoms, see link below,



 one of my subs had a symptom. shipped amp off and mine is on its way back. someone else here also has a sub amp on return. they currently are showing a 5 week turn around but with a refurb amp thats like brand spanking new a sub  as nothing else ever goes wrong with them and its just an age thing. these amps seem to last 10-15 years :D so once refurbed should be good for distance again :)




just contact them with above for an order number

I suspect the OP is in the process of re-evaluating his rash decision to sell unrepaired!,?

I hope so...seeing what the last smaller 15" went for and that wasnt even refurbed ! once refurbed it should be worth  many multiple of  $500 was meant to be going for :D

Hi all, 
Thanks for the vast amount of interest in this - this is now sold with payment made.


It is a good deal and I am pleased to let someone else enjoy these units after using them for years. They are such a clean sound. I just transitioned to the Krix units to pair with my mains.

       I have had this subwoofer for sometime  after purchasing it from another SNA member who had it since new.
      its a brilliant sub and has served me well in a secondary theatre set up. It’s in brand new condition without a mark.
      Velodyne really make wonderful subs, I have had 3 now and they are bullet proof performers and integrate seamlessly. 
      I am reconfiguring my system and this is no longer required.
      Shipping is fine but I don’t have the original box but could easily find one to suit.
      alternatively meet up between Eastern Suburbs or Mornington Peninsula are also workable

      Item: 2 x Velodyne DD18 Subwoofers in gloss Black
      Location: Brisbane
      Price:  $2,250 each or  $4,200 for the pair     (Were $7,999 EACH when new (or $4,999 USD))
      Item Condition:  Excellent
      Reason for selling: No longer required or used.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:        Re-listing these pair of amazing subs as I do need to move them on to contribute to the home deposit and are no longer used.  
      This is really a last effort for me to move these on as they're just sitting there. . .   I cannot offer for lower to let them go due to the huge cost initially.
      And if they don't sell I may just integrate them back into my theatre with my other subs given how flexible these are with configuration.
      For those who follow Velodyne closely, there's potential continued support to come in line with Audio Reference purchasing Velodyne:
      The Digital Drive series represent Velodyne's best subwoofer engineering for industry leading lowest THD, quoting less than 1% @ RMS (1250W). 
      The following article is a great, short summary comparing to the previous HGS18:
      With their servo-control technology which gives the ability to 'tighten' the driver resonance stiffness, these are almost impossible to beat in terms of tonal accuracy. 
      This makes them very diverse for home theatre use and the perfect company for musical lovers. 
      With a sealed enclosure, these offer great extension down to 14hz +/- 3dB, 1250W RMS / 3000W dynamic power and ofcourse their Texas Instruments built in software with fully configurable:
      - 5 x customisable presets inc volume, EQ & all below settings
      - 8-band parametric EQ with variable frequency, Q and level
      - Servo-control (tightness) 1 - 8 
      - Volume, including 'Night Mode' limitation
      - HPF, inc 6 - 48db increments.
      - LPF, inc 6-48db increments.
      - Phase - in 15Hz increments.
      - Polarity 0/180 degree
      With the included accessory kit which has professional microphone kit, you can visually see the response via the Subwoofer's VIDEO OUT. This was pretty leading edge for a subwoofer to have built in software when these were released.
      See the visual output more here:
      Both subs will be packed in Velodyne original packaging and include original manual and full accessory kit for each and I can also throw in RS-232 cables if you want to pair them - Yes; they can daisy chain.
      One unit had over $2,000 of repairs done 18 - 24 months ago - so every single piece of electronics in that unit is replaced, including amp module. 
      Both work perfectly, include remotes, accessory kit.
      Freight NOT included in the price. Each box is approx 1m x 1m 65KG
      I've also a DD18 in OAK I'll release for an extra $1,000 if buying the black pair as I am not sure it may not be coming into some problems. (output volume is only about half the others - so you have to double the volume level on the unit)
      Feel free to PM me with any questions.
