Fun getting a new toy, isn't it? Glad to hear you are enjoying the VTF-3 and Tron Legacy will certainly give it a workout. The new Wonder Woman is also a good bass flick to check out.

Though I agree with FalconsFan, I do have one from Auralex with my Outlaw Audio LFM-1 EX Subwoofer. See pic (it's on the left corner)

I have carpet over concrete. Kind of disappointed that I will lose out on some tactile feel.

In my situation are some sort of spikes beneficial to anchor the sub to the concrete?

Anyone pair these subs with buttkickers? Worth it?

Properly set up and integrated Buttkickers are most certainly worth it! They provide a wonderful low end tactile response ... been using them for several years now with my VTF-MK4 and an Energy S12.3. Highly recommended!

Well I've had this puppy (VTF-15H MK2) since February and I have to report that I am totally in love with this thing. My old cheap sub had a lot of punch at one frequency which made me doubt my Hsu at first. But the frequency range and power of this sub is pretty phenomenal.

I may end up with another one for Christmas. Maybe I'll "return" it and get the DualDrive! hahaha

About the only thing I can think of that would be an upgrade from this is the SVS PB16-Ultra....but for the price I seriously doubt that it would be better than 2 VTF-15H's, and it costs considerably more than 2 HSU's.
