I currently have two budget subs in my HT setup, Dayton Sub-1200s. I want to add a VTF-2 MK4 for ULF. My HT room is a bonus room, upstairs about 20Wx10Hx10L approx. My question is should I ditch the Daytons and just use the Hsu sub in a corner position or use the Daytons with the Hsu as a 3 sub combo? I know these two brands are totally different class of subs in almost every category but is there a way to blend them together without being boomy and/or ruining the quality of bass for music?

A quick call to HSU Research answered my question. The answer basically being retire the Daytons, the VTF-2 MK4 is all the sub you need. Now to convince the wife.

I don't think she's going to care about fewer subs. She might care about $200 vs. An additional $600.

Vico38,

I have had an HSU VTF-2/3 and it was the best sub out of all the HSU subs I had. Sounded
better than the VTF-3/3 with turbo. (I've had 5 HSU subs)

Yeah I would ditch the Daytons, to hard to integrate with the HSU, they are too
dissembler. Save up for a second VTF-2/4. Duals really help smooth out
the bass.
