Throw it out on the curb.

I dont think many 12's are worthy of HT, especially a big room. Im 15" all the way from now on.

How are you guys breaking the HSU's in? I mean can I let it warm up and turn it up half way and watch WWZ at -10?

No, it doesn't work that way. The sub has to be set up properly using Audyssey or whatever program you may have to set up your speakers. It will tell you if your sub is set too high or too low and then you can adjust the gain. I don't think there's a situation where you would need to turn the 15H up to half way. If it's a single sub, usually 9 o'clock on the dial is about as high as you want to go.

That dial is NOT for volume, it's for gain.

Anybody ordered their VTF-15 with extended warranty? just thinking of peace of mind but it makes it a little pricey.

No, I skipped out on it. I just know that within another year, i'm going to want something more. Sure do wish they had a trade-up program more than anything else.

Gotcha, my Marantz pre/pro has Audyssey XT32, so I'll have to run it again once I get the new sub set up. I've never owned a good sub, just the def tech, so this is going to be like starting all over again. I mean to get that sub to keep up with my mains I had to turn the gain up to around halfway, especially for movies. Also Audyssey's 75 Db reference always seemed a little low for my taste.


Ok what is Q control? I also noticed the crossover has an on/off switch, so if you switch it off the crossover is bypassed I'm assuming. What advantages or disadvantages are there to this?

Hey Comfynumb,

It was great talking to you over the phone. Welcome to the Hsu Family! The Q control slightly adjusts the deeper bass roll off. What you generally hear is a tightening of bass. You can reference the response graph on our main VTF-15H product page:

You are correct, switching the crossover to, "out" will bypass the crossover setting. In many cases, bypassing it would be a good idea if you have your av receiver handling the crossover.

Sincerely,
Kevin

Hi Kevin, thank you! Also thanks for the quick email responses and I have a tracking number already, very impressive service. Ok, I understand and I'm guessing my pre has the ability to set the crossover where I want it. I'll have to inquire on the Marantz thread because I've never done the crossover that way.

No problem, glad I can help! What Marantz preamp are you running?

Oh very nice. It should have a manual setup where you can set the speakers to small and the crossovers for each of the channels.

Thanks, it really is a great pre. Yes I can do it that way or let the sub EQ set it when I rerun Audyssey. The guys on the 8801 thread are telling me to let sub EQ set it up so I'll post my results afterwards.

Audyssey, Audyssey, Audyssey.
post #4279 of 5097
Yes, be smart about it. Honestly if you turn up the gain knob and press play before running audyssey or calibrating all your channels even then you will be prob like 20db hot and then disappointed when you run Audyssey and it's flatter. I had mine corner loaded and set the gain to about 830 which gave me -2db and then I ended up +2db with bumping it up in my AVR.
post #4280 of 5097
I will definitely take the time to set the Hsu up correctly with sub EQ. It seems I'M stuck in my old sub mentality and I need to wipe that from my memory biggrin.gif

Is it a bad idea to put the 15h in the same room as a 150 gallon fish tank?

I debated this and decided it was not in the best interest of the fish, I'm pretty sure they'd freak out biggrin.gif

You heard the 'Darla tap' on Finding Nemo, I think that would be the effect the fish would feel in the same room with a VTF in it.

I'm more concerned with the tank & 150 gallons of water being all over my room

When you run audyssey, a good setting to have the subwoofer on is 1 port open, EQ 1, Q.7, crossover set to out, and volume at 9-10 o'clock position. After you run audyssey, feel free to experiment with the different settings.
