Is the HSU VTF-2 MK 3 better than the A3-300??
Absolutely in the same league as those two and arguably better depending on listening habits and preferences. The coolest aspect of the VTF-2 is the ability to go between tuning the sub towards music, or lower extension.
Not sure what the warranty is on the e.d. but the HSU comes with a 7 year warranty on the driver. The VTF-2 MK 3 is also $40 off right now, approx $510 (w/o shipping). The biggest reason I am getting one though, is the fact that their shop is 5 minutes from my house. The weights a lot!
There are just so many factors to weight when getting one... oh and if you go with the A2-300 which is a VERY well respected sub, you will have to weight approx. a month or so to get it since it's made to order.
Hsu VTF-2 Mark III w/o Turbo ($510 ID): 86 points (40-46)
Elemental Designs A2-300 ($415 ID/SI): 83 points (44-39)
So "technically" most would rank it a little higher but the cost per performance if going by craigsubs metric is $5 a point for the A2-300 versus $5.90 for the VTF-2
A lot would argue that the A2-300 is a better bang for the buck, a lot would argue the VTF-2 is better all around... confusing indeed!
