Where are the audiophile reviews. Mine finally arrived but I AM NOT qualified to review. I'm having such a time getting placement and mid bass in order that I think I wouldn't do it justice.

I will say that my (soon to die) 12 year old NHT 10" 80 watt sub sounded just as good as HTD's 200 watt 12". But I'm sure a break in period and the proper adjustments would fix that.

But would love to hear someone with experience opine. Before I take the plung and return it to buy the $200 more expensive HSU STF3 everyone raves about.

I would hate to spend the money only to find that it's slightly better. Anyone heard them both and care post?

I thought the 12", double the watt and newer technology would surely have me drooling, but I've yet to find the car stereo head pounding bass I want. I do realize that HT is way different than music. I just want to feel the punch in my chest. Is that Possible with the above?

My room is an addition 18x18 with a 7' ceiling that slopes to 11' (that kills the acoustics).

Please not the normal "just get the HSU..." post. I'm asking about the HTD level 3 review or comments and comparison. Thanks

What receiver/processor do you have?

Have you level matched your speakers with your sub?

Onkyo 503 with HTD Level 2 bookshelf set and center. And yes I have level matched. I guess it just doesn't fill my room as much as I'd like.

So you have an spl meter then? I'd at least download Room EQ and try to get some idea of the sub's frequency response.
