post #241 of 5087
just out of curiosity, did anyone take out the driver yet to check it out?

Which has the louder bark and stronger bite, the Shepard or the HSU?

Is she a ported Shepard??
You know, she won't dig as deep as a sealed Shepard...I hope you know that. And I have the graphs that prove it!

To tell you the honest truth she has not come back down to the basement since I have hooked this up, she is scared of it! My theater is just below my kitchen and the floors bounce so much I now have buttshakers on my kitchen chairs and rattles the heck out of my stove. I have used two packs of locktight putty in my dropceiling and have used caulk in other areas in order to stop any unwanted sounds.

I believe they are all rear ported... if you check up under the tail you'll see its fully flared... and if you hear any port cuffing get the "woofer" outside quick.

My pooch did that when I first set my subs up...but it doesn't bother her anymore.

Hmmm.....wonder if that is a sign I need to upgrade

Also, what finishes if any are in the pipeline on this sub?

I suspect that for most 2-channel listening (other than pipe organ music), many may end up running one or two VTF-15H in a Sealed operating mode. This will give a less deep bass heavy sound than the Ported operating modes. For HT use where one will generally want as much deep bass output as possible, then many may end up running one or two VTF-15H in a Ported operating mode. That said, this will ultimately come down to customer preference, so we'll have to wait and see what the customers have to say about it.

The current plan is to keep Satin Black and Rosenut Real Wood Veneer finishes only.

Sincerely,

Thanks for the kind words! The amplifier used on the VTF-15H is actually very powerful, especially in terms of short-term power. That, in combination with a large enclosure, large ports, and large driver make for a very powerful subwoofer!

The DD-15+ is at a totally different price class and size class vs. VTF-15H, so not really apples to oranges comparison. If you can accomodate a relatively large subwoofer enclosure, then I highly recommend doing so, as one does tend to get very good deep bass efficiency that way.

Sadly I don't think I have any pics of the driver by itself. Note that this driver does not look fancy per se, but it is a really really good driver design. Major props to Dr. Hsu on that one!

Okay. I'm not sure the pictures were attached to this, but this is one amazing subwoofer. I'm from the San Francisco Bay Area and I visited some friends down in So. Cal. and stopped by the HSU Open House last week and was impressed by the output and musicality of this big ported sub.

I previously had a VTF-3 mk3 and loved it. I'm mostly HT in my living room (80%/20%) and do most of my music listening in my car, in which I have a sealed J.L. Audio 10" stealthbox in my S2000. I've also listened to and was impressed by a Rythmik F15 (although I didn't get to test it with home theater). So basically, I'm a fan of sealed subwoofers for music and ported subwoofers for home theater.

That being said, I put this thing through the paces and was impressed in both modes. With both ports open, I'm getting a pretty flat response down to 16 hz. in my 4200 ^3 ft. living room. For both ports being open, the sub was very musical (articulate, full, clean sound, and pretty good attack and decay). I played tracks with deep and fast hitting bass from B.O.B. -The Adventures of Bobby Ray, Linkin Park - A Thousand Suns, and Black Eyed Peas - The E.N.D. I also threw in some Saint Saens Organ Symphony #3. The sub kept up pretty nicely with my Ascend Sierra 1's.

In H.T. I was blown away! The bass was definitely present, but in a clean, distinct, impactful way that made movie-watching fun. It played the bass line in the music during Toy Story very smoothly, but was also able to quickly and emphatically add weight and volume to scenes such as when the t-rex toy jumped without overhang (clean, voluminous, tactile). The same can be said of movies such as How to Train Your Dragon, Terminator: Salvation, The Hulk, and the Dark Knight. The great thing about this sub is the added mid-upper bass impact. Nice and punchy!

I also tried sealed mode, and preferred this when listening to music. Adjusting for output differences using a Radio Shack SPL meter, the sealed mode seemed to tighten, clean, and punctuate the bass more (basically sealed subwoofer sound). Movies even sounded pretty good in sealed mode using the max extension setting. However, to me, movie watching was more enjoyable in the maximum output mode with both ports open.

This is one amazing sub, especially when one considers the price! If you have the room for this thing and are considering a sub, this would be a fantastic way to go! The great thing is the ability to go between ported and sealed and use different settings for both to dial in your sound preference.

I'm definitely glad I got this and will do more music listening and movie watching over the Thanksgiving holiday.

WOW!

Thanks for that review!

My unit will arrive to PR maybe this week...So i am very anxious...

How does it compare to the vtf3.3 you have? In terms of SPL palpability of course?

Thanks for the info and enjoy it!

Pete, I own the old Velodyne DD-15. I am wondering for 1/3 the price if the HSU will compair to the Velo. I am looking at the new DD-15 PLUS, I am just wondering if it would compair in performance. I would like a pair of subs also, if 2 HSU'S would compair than done. I think from a dollars stand point I would go that route. Pair them up with a sms-1 and boom. I am looking for clean loud low bass output and extention. Two hsu's and a sms-1 would be 2500.00 and two DD15 plus subs would be 8000.00.
Thanks

I have had several Velos the CHT-12, SPL-1200, and the VLF1012...

HSU and Velo go two very different ways...Really they are very different companies. HSU gives you bang for the buck, and Velo is a "price no object" company...

They both sound very good, but Velo has to pay somehow their great marketing, personnel, reseller stores, tech, etc... .

There was a comparison graph made several years ago with real program material between the HSU VTF-HO, the SVS PB-12+2 (with two 12"), and the DD-18 on the WOTW scene (one of the most taxing scene for a sub) and they were almost on par...That was with only a 12" driver on the HSU.

Now, imagine what a VTF-15 can do.

I hate you. (in the possible way ) Mine isn't being delieved till Thurs. Thanks for sharing your thoughts though

By the sounds of it there a couple other Canadians expecting their subs then too.

I'll be posting pics, as I think most pics so far have been in the black, I ordered mine in Rosenut which will make my Jamo C-807s look cheap.

Nice on the gramma, I built my own riser for my Mirage Omni S10, needless to say this sub won't fit lol.

It is an Auralex Gramma that uncouples the subwoofer cabinet from the floor. I live in a townhouse and it helps reduce the house shaking. Before doing this, I used to get complaints about the neighbor not being able to work on his desk (which was actually next door and upstairs) due to the desk vibrating. After using a iso platform, no complaints. Don't worry, I still get enough shaking from the actual bass output.

This commercial iso platform is available in multiple sizes. There's a Subdude, which would work nice for the ULS-15. The Gramma you see in the picture is actually perfect for the VTF3-mk3. The Great Gramma would be a good size for the VTF-15H. A lot of people build their own as well.

Cacimar, you will not be disappointed with the output level of this beast!
The output palpability is on a different level than the VTF-3, and that is a great sub as is. The VTF-15 plays subtle dynamics (music soundtrack)and sudden forceful impacts (thunder, collisions) and house-shaking low bass (WOTW machine emerging scene) with relative ease. Let's just say I notice more bass details and feel more solid weight (without overhang) behind sound effects when compared with the VTF-3. What is definitely more palpable, when compared to the VTF-3, is the mid-upper bass on the VTF-15.

I use my Denon 3808 Audyssey Multi-Eq-xt to balance the channel levels between all 5 speakers and the sub and to equalize the in-room sound. My sub volume knob is set to just 9:00 (2nd mark) and Audyssey sets the channel level at -10.5. That says a little something about the power behind this things. Most subs I've used Audyssey are usually set at 10:00 (3rd mark) or higher.

While the VTF-3 is a terrific 12" ported sub, I feel that the VTF-15 outdoes it in all aspects (mid-upper bass, bass extension, musicality, home theater slam).

Congratulations, Cacimar! I'm sure you will really enjoy it! It sounds like it'll be there really soon!

HHAHAHAHA Yeah! Waiting to put that in my 3,100cufeet room!

Thanks for the info man! That was what I wanted to hear.
You know, it will replace my ULS-15, and the ED A7s-450 which were stacked.... So it has big shoes to fill.

the more i read about this sub, the more i think this sub is for me. Everyone is just commenting on its mid-upper bass power and thats what i am really interested into. Damn......i really need this sub

After lots of max output watching for fun, I decided to start playing around with tweaking of this baby. I know these analog Rat. Shack meters aren't very accurate, and everyone's situation is different, but with me I am happy as can be. Both ports open Q.3, I am getting corrected values on rat shack of 109.5db at both 20 and 16Hz at my listening position of 10 ft away not even pushing the limits. I am also corner loading on concrete slab with padding and carpet, with concrete behind one of my two, one sheet framed drywall (I get good gain out of my corner). My room is open to a 6000 cubic foot basement. I have also found that I get great frequency response with one port in, eq2, Q.3 for watching movies. I have 2 15" Kicker L7 squares in sealed box with 1600watts in car and the VTF in sealed mode destroys them in sound quality. This sub is so much fun to play around with the different settings, I will for sure be doing more experimenting later this week. I set a sub budget at $1000 and only went over by $18. I researched for a couple months on this forum and as soon as I saw HSU released this, I pulled the trigger. If I had to do it over again I would make the same purchase.
