Oh yeah, from when they start out of the grounds and the next 3-4 minutes is wicked.

I do understand what you're saying, and I don't disagree. I was just making an observation. It seems Hsu is comfortable in their niche. I'm not big on brand loyalty, if a company doesn't have the product I need, I'll move on. They seem to have most of the bases covered, but I agree there could be room at the top of their lineup for a no holds barred ultra high performance sub. Even if they didn't sell in huge numbers it could act as an aspirational product to add prestige to the whole company, and as you said, excite the fan base.

Hsu has never been about massive, expensive showpiece subs. For those who want a monster bass system, they would encourage a modular approach, ie multiple subs. If you want a killer sub from Hsu, get a ULS-15 quad drive. For a better system, just keep adding ULS-15s, as they are geared for this. Since they all have wireless receivers built in, you only need one sub out and one transmitter to hit them all. Also, since their roll off is gradual, you would eventually get usable bass down into the single digits with a bunch of ULS subs. Since they are not huge, they can easily be placed into optimal locations for smoothed response.

Half way there!!

Good point, but it is also dangerous to stand still in business, because the competition never does.

Amen.


Nothing against doing something and leaving it out there for consumers but when you don't come back into the market with something new fast enough, the customer is going to move on. I think the ID competition has been very active only past couple. I think PSA actually had these forums abuzz for quite some time before they released their Triax. That's always good for business.

hey guys, i'm interested in HSU's mid bass module, but I was thinking, wouldn't a midbass module be the same as integrating mixed matched subs, as one sub would dig deep and the other wouldn't? How exactly do would you add a midbass sub to another sub that plays down to 17hz and what location would be ideal for this kind of sub? Thanks

Maybe this will help..

Will the HSU MBM work with any sub?

Interesting... How hard can you push the ULS15? I guess I have always thought of the ULS15 for those whose primary listening is music.

The ULS-15 can be pushed pretty hard for music. The problem is there is an EQ boost down low which is meant for music, but movies can over tax pretty easily if sub is driven loud enough. For movies you will want to tone the deep bass boost down by bringing the ULF trim up to 50 Hz. But its mid bass output is actually on par with the VTF3, so it has no problems getting loud.
