The VTF-3.5 looks sweet. I always thought the side firing design looked weird.

It's surprising how easily even knowledgeable people fall for the gimmicks some of the other companies use. I prefer the straightforward approach Hsu employs.

How about some pictures of the new drivers? Show off those cast baskets!

Hi there,

Just a friendly reminder, for all of you around the Denver area, that we will be at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2014 showcasing our new subs. We would love to see some of you folks there. Don't worry, I didn't forget about the driver pics.

Sincerely,
Kevin

If any one here is so inclined to hear some wonderful BASS from a Horror movie (it is OCT!) Frankenstein's Army has a ton of it!

I realized I should have posted this in the VTF thread, but I am sure anyone with any HSU sub would notice this flick.

Hey everyone,


How many of you have the pinpoint speaker wall mounts p/n AM40 you're using to wall mount your HB-1 MK2's ?
Does this wall mount do a very good job of supporting this bookshelf?

I like what I've read online for these speakers and all of your comments just make it that much confident of a decision to buy them. And to augment the bottom end with these, I'm hoping to go with 1 or 2 SVS
SB-2000's. Should be very nice.

The AM40s work very well to hold the HB-1s, I have used them. The Videosecu side-clamping mounts are essentially the same mounts but less expensive. I have used them also.

One thing you can do, if you're afraid of them slipping out of the grip, is use some double sided adhesive foam to better secure the speaker to the mount. We use duck brand double-sided adhesive foam in our demo room and it works well. It survived through a few California earthquakes. One thing to note is that stuff is very strong, so if you're going to use it, make sure that you aren't planning on moving the speaker for a good long while and note that the foam might ruin the speaker finish it's stuck to, if you attempt to remove the foam.

Blu-tack is another option. Works great and won't harm the finish on speakers.

On the website it appears the vtf15mk2 has a lower 1 port tuning than the vtf3 mk5, 16hz vs 18hz.

According to Kevin, on the vtf3mk5, you can plug either the 3" port (18hz tune), or the 4" port (16hz tune). I don't believe they've shown us a FR for the 16hz tune yet, though.

Hi there,

The 4" port is tuned to 18 Hz and the 3" port is tuned to 16 Hz. You can certainly run the sub with either port open. However we would usually recommend just running with 4" port open for max extension mode as that will have less port noise than if you were to run the sub with the 3" port open. So for the VTF-15H Mk2, it has 16 Hz tuning in max extension mode and it utilizes 4.5" triangular ports so it will be able to give you the 16" Hz extension and play significantly cleaner than the VTF-3 Mk5 HP.

Hey Kevin, about the roll off of the VTF3 mk4, does it roll down at a 24 dB octave slope or 48 dB?

Hi ShadyJ,

In sealed, it would be 24 dB/oct (4th order). In ported mode, it would be 36 db/oct (6th order).
