Default JBL or Velodyne

I am trying to decide between these two subwoofers, as their any opinions out there? JBL L8400 P - SPECIFICATIONS

Amplifier Power (RMS) - 600 Watts
Peak Dynamic Power - 1200 Watts;
the Peak Dynamic Power is measured by recording the highest peak-to-center voltage produced by the power amplifier with its limiters disabled, across the output of a resistive load equal to minimum impedance of the transducer, using a 50Hz sine wave burst, 3 cycles on, 17 cycles off.
Bass Driver - 12" (300mm) PolyPlas™cones with rubber surround, cast-aluminum chassis, HeatScape™ motor structure, Symmetrical Field Geometry™ (SFG™), oversized fiberglass voice coil, magnetic shorting ring
Frequency Response - (–3dB) 22Hz – Low-pass crossover frequency
Low-Pass Crossover Frequencies - 50Hz – 150Hz, continuously adjustable (150Hz when using speaker-level connection)
Inputs - Gold-plated 5-way binding-post speaker-level; left and right line-level, switchable to LFE
Outputs - Gold-plated, 5-way binding-post speaker-level
Enclosure Design - Sealed
Baffle - Low-diffraction, IsoPower™
Dimensions - (H x W x D) 16-1/2" (15-1/2" without feet) x 15-1/2" x 15-1/2"
Weight per Speaker - 58 lb

or the Velodyne DPS-12

Amplifier - Class A/B: 400 watts Dynamic/200 watts RMS Power
Woofer: 12" forward firing (9.9" piston diameter)
Voice Coil: 2" four-layer copper
Magnet: 55 oz. (3.5 lbs)
Low Pass Crossover: 40 Hz-120 Hz adjustable
(12 dB/octave initial,48 dB/octave ultimate)
Inputs: Line-Level and Speaker-Level
Outputs: Speaker-Level
Frequency Response: 25-120 Hz (+/- 3 dB)
Weight: 58 lbs (approx)
Warrantyparts/labor) Three years (electronics)
Five years (drivers)
Cabinet(H/W/D)(cm): 18.25" x 14.5" x 19"
