My Velodyne DPS 12 subwoofer just bit the dust :( and I need suggestions on a quality repair shop in Houston to take it to. It is amazing how crappy my surround system sounds without the thump thump of the subwoofer. Thanks in advance !

How old is it? Is it still under warranty? If not, check your owners manual or call/look at velodyne's website to find their authorized repair centers.

These are the guys that I used to use when I was playing bass here in town.

They primarily do pro-audio stuff for PA systems, band equipment and other big stuff, but I'm pretty sure they can re-cone just about anything.

They also did a 16 ohm to 8 ohm conversion on an old JBL D140 15" bass speaker I was using during the re-cone.

The place looks pretty rough last time I was there, but all the band guys I knew used these guys.

They did a nice job for me both times I needed them.

No one that I could find in Houston wants to repair it, not cost effective for them. So I called Velodyne and they said to ship the amplifier out of the subwoofer to them and for 185.00 they will send me another one. Since the sw is a 600.00 unit 185.00 is far more cost effective for me as opposed to buying another one.
