Adding subs to my VTF-15H

Hello Guys,

I'm planning to add 1-2 subs (eventually 3 to have 4) to my current VTF-15H. I have a dedicated room so WAF isn't a factor.

The problem is that I live in Canada and as you may know our dollar is about as worthy as Mexican Pesos, so bring in a sub from the US makes no sense...

Good news is that my cousin has access to distributors through his business and can get better price on a few brands like Polk, Sunfire and Sumiko.

Here's what I could get:

- Polk DSW 660 $500 CAD
- Sunfire HRS-12 $800 CAD
- Sumiko S.9 $800 CAD

Just for the sake of it, a VTF-15H Mk2 to my door step would be close to $2k CAD. I'm also open to other options! Thanks!

It's not about output, it's about having headroom and a smooth response across multiple seats. And output a little bit.

I would not add a lesser sub...add another VTF. Keep your eye open in the FS section. Canuck audio mart would be a place to check frequently.

I was thinking of twin Sunfire in the front and HSU in the back. Frequency response is similar, the Sunfire has less output, but having two of them should make it work.

Checked Canucks Audio Mart quite often but HSU subs are a rare breed in Canada.

I know the VTF would be the best in an ideal world, but can't see the point of dropping $2k on a single sub that cost half south of the border. I am looking for alternatives.

I understand...that is a bit pricey. Have you tried Sonic boom audio? I know they are a SVS dealer. Maybe a PB2000 or Plus?

That being said, The HRS-12 would probably be the best option out of the 3 you listed. It is a quality sub, just so small...but 2 of them coupled might keep up with the VTF-15.

Thanks for the tip, SB Audio sells SVS PB-1000 for $698 CAD. Would that be a better choice over the Sunfire?

I think in the 15-30hz the PB-1000 would have more output and being ported would integrate better then the HRS-12.
