I'm in the process of buying my first HT in over 10 years. This HT will be used for TV/movies in a 5.1 setup. The room size is 23'l, 15'6"w, 8'h.

Now my question, is the VTF-3 worth the extra $186 for some one that does not listen to music? Would I be just as happy with the VTF-2 since I won't be messing with the sealed option? Just from the little bit of reading I have done it seems the sealed option is best for music.

Seems to me the VTF-3 is a larger sub built for larger rooms. Both subs have a sealed option. $186 over 10 years doesn't amount to much. With the VTF-3 you can run in Maximum Extension and should have enough headroom. Nice to have the 16Hz response of the larger VTF-3.

Ty for the quick response. I missed the sealed option on the VTF-2. Thanks for correcting me. The little extra money is not a big deal. I just didn't want to pay for something I didn't need.

I'm not sure what Maximum Extension is but a quick search on google will take care of that

Thank you for helping me out. Sounds like the VTF-3 is the better option.

VTF stands for Variable Tuning Frequency. You place a foam rubber plug into one of the 2 ports on the VTF, and flip a switch on the amp and it lowers the tuning frequency. You can run the VTF-3 in Maximum Extension for 16 Hz response or in Maximum Output which raises the tuning frequency to 22 Hz. Nice to have the choice.
