I just "applied" to the Epik family and ordered (2) Sentinels this evening after pouring over a lot of data.
My current sub is a Hsu VTF3 MK3 that works quite well, but you never really have enough bass. I would have added a second VTF3 but Hsu improved the 3 since I purchased mine and improved the HW and finish. It would not have been an exact match to my current one, although that was my justification to crossover, lame as it is. The shipping cost was also a factor for another unit. No disrespect to the Hsu as it still is a damn fine sub and I have no regrets buying it in the first place.
The Sentinels price, reviews and the fact that it's close enough to me to have local pickup persuaded me to take the plunge
14x19x7 semi enclosed room that opens into a larger rec room in the basement. Commercial grade carpet over concrete floor and drywall poured walls, with suspended ceiling rounds it out.
The Sentinels new family will include:
Outlaw 770 200w/ch power amp (300W into 4 ohm)
Fxi5 side surround
Fxi3 rear surround
16x9 110" DIY Wilsonart screen
My favorite movie to impress my friends is of course Master and Commander.
I am looking forward to impressing their bowels even more.....
