What is the deal with the haters?
Hell if the SVS is sounds better and is musical I would send back the HSU for the SVS. I just was providing background (not a rant) why I made my choice.
No buyer's remorse just curious to hear the SVS.
No crap of course the PB12-Plus/2 would blow away the VTF3 MK2 it has 2 12" drivers and a larger cabinet. I think I already establish the fact 2 subs or the PB12-Plus/2 would be overkill. I'm thinking either the PB12-Plus or 20-39 cyclinder.
You made the original post about HSU. You think SVS was trying to over sell, but there are many here that have been talked down by Erik, Ron, Tom. For a 6000 ft^3 room, everyone else in here would have said 'get a +/2'. When you got a reasonable, polite reply from Mike, you referred to it as a fanboy response. Then you wonder about the haters ( I assume you mean HSU haters), because I gave you a quick reply. If you look at the history of my recommendations, you will see HSU on many occasions.
The fact you think you get enough bass from the MKII is relative. I probably wouldn't think so. HSU didn't really have anything else to offer except the HO, if you wanted to wait till next year. If Erik was going to oversell, he would have said you needed an Ultra/2 or dual +/2. For a space your size, I would want a +/2 at least. I have over 8800 ft^3 and a single +/2. I need a second to fill the space. But I do get plenty of bass with one, I just want more.
So for my less lame response, I believe Erik was correct. If your happy with your MKII's output, great, but that doesn't mean it is size right for your room, it's just sized right for you.
After you spend more time in this forum, you will find the SVS owners are the most helpful when it comes to sub selection, placement, calibration... Not to say others aren't helpful, just that there are more SVS owners here than any other brand. But, because SVS subs are usually included in the recommendations, we are accused of being fanboys. That is not a term of endearment. So, when people get a little sensitive, that is why.
