Placing the woofer facing the wall means distance from woofer to wall is not a few inches closer. Therefore bass should increase.

It didn't increase the bass in my room. I ran Anthem's frequency sweeps graph front facing and with the woofer facing 3" from the wall and both graphs are the same. I agree that every room is different but in my room it didn't matter which way I turned the sub.

Facing the woofer toward the wall loads the driver for increased efficiency of the driver. Deep bass is omnidirectional I am not surprised at the results.

I didn't have to measure anything to tell that there was no difference in my theater because if I had to actually measure to even possibly tell that there was a difference then there effectively wasn't one.

The whole thing about all this sub in the corner facing the wall is that corners (most of the time) are not the best places for placement. I would take a better response over a few more SPL anyday

A lot of truth in this! I got really very extremely frustrated with REW a couple weeks ago. I admit many times the graphs looked better whether it be FR response, time domain issues or specular reflections when I felt I was telling myself it sounded better because the graph looked better. Honest truth for real. But I will say that finding the best place that yielded the best Raw response for both subs was a huge improvement and for that reason I will always measure.

I have recently done DIY 4 inch reflection panels for sidewalls and the ceiling I have a big one (juan). Also a couple 15x15x48 soffit traps in each corner. I placed the reflection panels using the mirror technique and I can tell clarity has improved, especially center channel vocals in movies. But my Denon 4520 arrives this week and I am not sure yet to be honest if I will get deep into measuring with REW I may just do basic sub EQ for my mini dsp and call the rest good with XT32

My ear would agree with you. I've rarely liked corner sub placement, finding it one note bass, boomy, undefended and...gargly... 1/4 and mid wall always sounds better to me and is much cleaner, smoother and broader, if not as hard hitting.

Hey JL, what's up. I know you're into the measuring thing but me, not so much. You ready to gift me one of those Big Boy subs you got?

smile.gif They are nice for sure, I think I take them for granted. The extension into single digits really adds a good supporting role but the stuff we all hear will always be the main show. I think the stuff we can't hear is good and adds to the experience but I honestly feel its overplayed by some. But hey if they like it that much thats certainly their right smile.gif. I will always love the slam and kick drum and good slashing bass movie effects like a fighter jet slashing through the room, or the Hulk Stomping. I actually had a random thought today of doing a couple couch side 12's or so...

I believe I watched it back when I had dual Bic F12's. It was a bassfest back then so I'm pretty sure the 15H's rocked the house. The movie itself didn't do much for me.

Anyone use this sub with on walls such as the ML SLM XL? The XL's have a freq response of 100-25k Hz. Recommended crossover is 120. But, the 15H has 90 as the highest crossover?

Hello all 15H's users i seem to be having a bit of a dilemma over here with my sub. Just recently i started noticing my sub is not working half the time and when it goes back to normal it starts making these pop noises. What could it be the amp or the driver? Any type of answers would help thank you

Have you contacted HSU customer support ?
I would guess the amp.

Yeah like everyone has said, your best bet is to call up HSU. They've been very helpful with me in the past.

I guess you could also make sure it's not a power issue like a failing power strip or surge protector or whatever

If you have capability to play this through your system/HSU try it out. This F40 exhaust and engine actually sound quite remarkable using my Anthem MRX500 in Anthem Logic Cinema 2.0. My pants vibrated, the couch vibrated, dishes were vibrating, curtains moving...pretty good. The HSU..what hasn't already been said, it's awesome.smile.gif

Here is a vid of mine that i put up on youtube last year. The weird sound at the end is the room being pressurized and wreaking havoc on the mic. Still sounds badass either way. http://youtu.be/qFHxTKNKaK0

Just ordered one of these with the Father's Day sale going on. I've had a VTF-3 MK3 for about 6 years now and it's still going strong. Did a lot of research before buying that one and never regretted it. This time around it was easy to just look to Hsu for an upgrade and reviews seem quite favorable for this sub.

I'm under the impression I likely won't need anything more than the one VTF-15H, but would I have foreseeable complications if I ran these two non-matching subs together?
