  1. Any recommendation for ports, EQ, and Q settings? Primarily a movie and tv fan. (95% movie/tv to 5% music)
  2. Since I have a Pioneer receiver, I have the MCACC EQ. Is it worth doing? I have a SPL and could manually configure, but wasn't sure what you all thought.
Let me know your thoughts if you have some time. Thanks!
The HSU manual has recommended settings for your sub before running your Auto calibration routine... typically one port plugged, EQ 1 and Q control at .7 if I recall correctly....then when that is done, you can set your ports, EQ and Q-control for the type of bass sound you like...

Good deal! Can't wait to get the sub delivered and calibrated.

Hi I have a Hsu VTF-15 and VTF15MK2 subs hooked up to an Onkyo 828 receiver, and I have found out that my receiver needs an amp to fully power the second subwoofer.
Does anyone have an amp that they would recommend for the subs? Everytime I look for an amp, I see amps that are designed for cars, and I'm assuming I need a more specific type of amp for a home theater?

uhhhhh, you are confused about using 2 subs with your Onkyo... You do not need amps for HSU subs, they have their own! If you can't get one of the subs to activate, you may need to rerun your Audyssey setup again to identify that you have 2 subs hooked up...

Got my second vtf-15h and did the calibration last night with my denon 4311ci. Sub 1 was at -5.5 and 2 at -6.0. Should I rerun the calibration and try getting closer to 0 +/- 3.
