I purchased a VTF-15H MK2 that just shipped. This is my first time owning a HSU product. It will be going into a computer room that is roughly 1400 cu. ft. on the 2nd floor of a colonial. Currently I am using two subs in this room, an Emotiva X-Ref 12 and an Emotiva Ultra Sub 10. They have been OK but not exactly chest thumpers. The other problem has been that because of everything else in the room placement has not been ideal so from where I'm sitting you don't get the most effect. Well, I guess something just snapped in me and I decided to put another sub in a spot that I never thought I would and went with this 15" big boy. The price/performance ratio was the best, the finish was exactly what I wanted, and the dimensions were just right. And for me, personally, DIY was not an option. Other gear includes an Emotiva XDA-2 DAC, XPA-200 2ch amp, and a pair of Polk Monitor40s. I listen to all kinds of music and I wanted to kick it up a notch without looking back and saying "maybe I should have went bigger." I think this is about as big of a sub as I can comfortably live with in this room. Other considerations included the SVS PC13-ULTRA, PB-2000, PB12-PLUS, Rythmik FV15HP, PSA V1500, etc. I was not really considering a sealed sub (even though this is mainly for music) simply because I wanted the most SPL I could get. So I'm going to give it a shot when I get it next week and worst case scenario I'll put it in my HT to replace one of the MFW-15s that just went out on me for the last time (domed capacitor repair didn't work this time). But for the HT I'll probably go with dual JTR Cap 1400s at some point down the road. Now, the question is going to be whether to keep the other two Emotiva subs in the system or remove them. I live across the country 2300 miles away so I hope it doesn't get beat up in the shipping.
And the other thing, how do get this thing up the stairs? Will this work? LOL
