Still trying to get someone to make up your mind for you? It's a fine sub, but the sub alone won't do it....I think I asked before and didn't see a response. What's the rest of your system? The whole movie experience takes a bit of gear to get there. If you really like bass there is no way to guarantee that after your first taste you you won't want more later, though. biggrin.gif

Is it too free to control?" - Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) discussing commercial success in the music biz

The VTF-15H is an excellent sub for its price.

You need to go to the VTF-15 thread and read the last two pages! biggrin.gif Btw..if you also go to the Hsu website click on the VTF-15, check out the reviews there...about 5 of them are from AVS members like me that posted those reviews here at AVS.

I have 1 VTF-15 and my room is about 20x35x8. I have it turned pretty low because it just fills my room up with bass and handles my room with ease(at least to my standards). You will not be dissapointed. You could always go with the dual drive system biggrin.gif

Read/Watch this http://www.avsforum.com/t/1313176/shootout-epik-empire-vs-hsu-vtf-15h-vs-cht-cs18-1-vs-rythmik-fv15-vs-ed-a7s-450 This is the thread that sealed my choosing an Empire.

and this http://www.audioholics.com/reviews/speakers/subwoofers/vtf-15h

and this http://www.audioholics.com/reviews/speakers/subwoofers/rythmik-fv15hp

and finally this http://www.audioholics.com/reviews/speakers/subwoofers/svs-pb13

You are roughly 2500cf so its not that big of a room. IMO (and there are others out there who are far far more knowledgeable than I), and provided you dont have the worst room ever, I think you would be very happy with the HSU. Unless you need a SPL monster, the extra $$$ the FV15 and SVS cost might be better spent elsewhere (but its your money). I will say, that the SVS is a beautiful piece. But is it $1000 more sexy? Thats for you to decide. Check out Archaea's newly created thread about Subs at a particular price point. Its very spot on.

Good luck.

I am a huge fan of HSU and almost pulled the trigger on a pair of HSU TN1220 HO's plus the HSU 500 watt amp, but decided on the lovely HSU VTF-3HO's plus Turbos. I have spoken to Dr. Hsu several times and exchanged email with Pete HSU on several occasions. The VTF-15H is a huge sucess for the company and is on its way to becomming the most popular subwoofer in HSU history.

Kudos to Dr. Hsu! His design chops are second to none. We don't even need to discuss all the consulting work he has done for companies ranging from Outlaw to Dayton, (IIRC).

Bravo to the good Doctor!
