I watched Godzilla yesterday, wow that was the bass king, it has to rival Tron Legacy for generous amounts of deep bass. I had an extra blu ray player sitting on a nearby shelf, and the continuous bass vibrated it off and knocked it down. Cool movie!

Anyway, I just stopped by to say check out the pricing on the VTF15h at the moment, very nice discount, but a real brief sale. If you haven't seen the main Hsu thread yet, they are making room for the mk2s which will be released later this year.

Would it be possible to upgrade a VTF-15H to a MK2 version?

Hi Mlknez,

The amplifier should be able to fit in the Mk1. The driver is now uses a cast frame to help support the heavier motor structure, so you will need to slightly modify the enclosure to get it to fit in.

Sincerely,
Kevin

Oh boy oh boy oh boy!

So, same box, upgraded amp and driver? Sounds like this will this be available as an upgrade package for the Mk1 people? Any other details you can leak? Power? Response? Upgrade price? New sub price?

Inspector, from what I understand, you will need to widen the cabinet cut-out for the driver, so this is not just a drop-in upgrade. You will have to sand some of the edges off the driver cut out in order to make it fit. Some details about the VTF15h mk2 can be found here.

I just watched TF4 and the Dinobots stomp all over (IMO) Godzilla as far as bass goes! This movie will put your system in a workout and I hope to upgrade to Atmos in the near future!

I saw it at the theater, where the speakers suck, but still felt it must have some killer LFE. Got the blu-ray today, can't wait to watch this weekend.

Good to know! I'll order it and see if I can use this at RMAF or something.

I watched it again this past weekend and I watched it louder. I did notice the bass more but it felt the whole soundtrack didn't have much depth to it.

You are in for a treat! I played mine at MV (Denon 4311) at -30 and it rocked the house!

Cool, that will be great demo material! The whole movie has mid slams, low slams and sweeping ultra low effects. I would say the last part has the most effects. I was actually surprised how accurate sounding the VTF (again!) when
Spoiler!

Soooo, looking at the spec for the new VTF-3 Mk5...seems awfully close in performance to the 15 for $100 bucks less...like 99% of the performance for $100 less.
http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/vtf-3mk5HP.html

Though I know graphs and numbers don't always tell the whole story, so what is the listening difference between these two subs??

Hi Inspector24,

The VTF-15H features dual 4.5" triangular ports , balanced inputs, along with a slight increase in performance. The sub, in max extension mode, is tuned to 16 Hz with a 4.5" port. The VTF-3 Mk5 HP is tuned with 18 Hz (4" port open) or 16 Hz (3" port open). So the VTF-15H Mk2 would be able to play a little louder and cleaner (less port noise) at high playback levels.

Sincerely,
Kevin
