Default Velodyne vs Madisound or partsexpress kits

As I am not familiar with the Madisound / Partsexpress kits how would these compare to Velodyne subs ?

Any ....

I would like to hear x Model steps all over x Model of this sub... or from a price point a 400 complete kit (with box) would translate to a 1000 Velodyne model

IMO, store bought subwoofers are the easiest thing to beat in regards to DIY.
For instance.. if you want high output at very low frequencies, grab a pair of CSS SDX15's or something and put them in proper enclosures, along with a suitable pro amp.. like an EP2500, QSC RMX series, or Mackie FR series. And there you have it.. a foundation rattling pant flapping subwoofer that'll compete/blow away just about anything available in stores. And that's just a very basic setup.. not even getting into TL's, horns, and all that yet. It's a no brainer. Don't pay for the outrageous Velodyne. Build your own. You'll be glad you did. In fact, you'll probably find it difficult to think back on that Velodyne without laughing at it in comparison.

Actually, since you mentioned Parts Express..

I kept a friend's Dayton Reference series 15" HF for a good period of time while he worked on getting other parts of his system together. If you're determined to go the subwoofer route, I highly recommend you check them out. VERY nice drivers for the money.

reading from other threads... Rhytmik seems to be the sub of choice for 2 channel audio... if this was a commercially made sub would anyone comment on what commercially made product this model would be very close to in performance ?

Can't go wrong with the Partsexpress RS line. From what I've read, the 12" is the best bang for the buck. The HO models require a smaller cabinet size thenthe HF but perform essentially the same. Larger then that (15") there are other alternatives that can handle more power and have more x-max. Sorry I can't remember the brands/models.
