My builder is so nice and is including all of my speakers (in wall) 7.1 all I have to buy is a sub, so I figured, why not.. so I purchased:

Velodyne 400 Watt 12" Subwoofer Model: DLS-4000R

I heard Velo's are top of the line and I will NOT be disappointed in a 13x17 room. Did I make the right choice?

BTW: I paid $350 for it from Futureshop.

According to the PDF from Velodyne, the sub is a 200W "continuous" (RMS?) / 400W "dynamic" unit with a 12" driver and a frequency response of "25-120Hz 3dB" (but not "+/-3dB", so it's not clear whether the -3dB point is actually at 25Hz).

The specs sound reasonable for a new sub at that price point and, in a 13'x17' enclosed room, it should provide some solid bass.

Set it up, calibrate your system and see how everything sounds. If the sub doesn't do it for you, return it.

Thanks, it's not enclosed though :( 3 corners and open to the rear of the listening area. Thanks for the reply.

From the size of your room that's a nice sub you just need to have patience and calibrate between your sub and amp , and i think that at the end of the day you gonna be happy with it , but like eljay said if you feel that's something is missing or you are not satisfied with the sound you can always go bigger ( the Velodyne Accoustics 15 witch can be a little boomey ) or find a SVS in mint condition ( this can be very hard to find in Canada ) but i think you gonna be happy with the upgrade you just made
