The Hsu will have a big advantage over the S1500 and Gamma 15. They should be able to match the Hsu in upper bass, but in deep bass the Hsu will have over twice as much output. Below the Hsu's tuning...

The album which gets the most attention from DCD seems to be "Toward the Within". There are some good use of bass, but it's not really subwoofer candy. It's a very nice album though. A DCD tune...

The Hsu would easily be the most powerful and likely the best choice for a dedicated home theater room, however shipping is substantial on such a large sub, and on the VTF15h mk1, it is $143. My...

The speaker in your signature looks like a Pi Four? The measurements for that speaker are much better than many high end audiophile speakers. For performance, I will take a Pi Four over a Wilson...

As far as performance goes, a Mariana 24 will annihilate a Gotham 213 without question, and I am talking about music and articulation, not just sheer output and extension. Lol, it's not even a fair...

As far as cleanliness goes, in the long term compression and distortion charts, they are basically equal, at least as far as music range goes (30 Hz+). The impulse response looks very similar. The...

The center channel carries the dialogue, but that signal can be carried through the left and right as well in what is called a phantom center. The center speaker is good if you have a larger...

I would skip the center and get towers that had decent bass. I would be looking at Klipsch or Infinity Reference maybe. At the moment you can get Klipsch RF-82s for 400 each, and they do very well on...

Any subwoofer system that has a flat frequency response, low distortion, little overhang or group delay, should make for good music bass. This pretty much necessitates at least a dual sub setup, and...

If you want to avoid crowds, the best time to go is when the show opens. Also, if the show extends through Sunday, go on the Sunday.

Cap 1400 would be the most powerful. The FV15HP is a great sub too. Why not consider the Reaction Echo 18? I don't know why you have the V1500 on there with those others, it isn't going to hang with...

The PB2000 will have the most deep bass around the lower limit of human perception, around 18 to 20 Hz. The Rythmik and PSA sub will have more output below that point, but who cares because you will...

A sealed 12" isn't going to give you much punch unless its a heavy duty one like a JL Audio F112. I would be looking at a ported 15" sub, something from Reaction Audio or Hsu Research are your best...

The Dayton Ultimax 15 will outperform the others by a wide margin, except for the PA-150 above 50 or 60 Hz or so. It will be the most expensive after all costs, but it will be the best (assuming you...

It's less than a dB away in performance from the VTF15h mk2 down to 25 Hz, which is an inaudible difference. The VTF15h mk2 does have larger ports, which help to mitigate port chuffing, but that...

I think you would be happy with the VTF3 mk5. It's pretty close in power and output to the VTF15h mk2, and it is a huge step up from the VTF2 while not being a whole lot more expensive.

I don't think sealed or ported will affect that very much. Other factors will make a greater determination there. I can't speak for the Reaction sub but the Hsu is excellent on that point, although I...
