Congrats!

Remember, there's no volume on the sub, just gain.

I have 2 in the same room as my 150g tank and have never had any problems. I keep African Cichlids so they are pretty hearty and they have never reacted to any bass scenes. Actually on the grenade scene in World War Z that everyone has been talking about I did look over at the fish to see if they were spooked because it's such an intense scene, but they didn't give a **** lol.

That is good to know because I love Cichlids! Probably the only tropical fish I kept alive for a long time.

Thanks so I don't have to worry about the sub shaking the tank apart

I've had about a week and a half now with my vtf-15h and all I can say is wow. I watched Terminator 2 this past weekend which I watch about 4 times a year for the last 15 years. Needless to say I know how each scene sounds. That being said, having this sub added a whole new dynamic to the movie. Words cannot express how clean the bass is. I'm also hearing and feeling sounds that I've never heard in the movie. On a separate note, I had friends over to watch iron man and they all agreed the sound was better than seeing movies in imax or avx. I would say this myself but then it would make it seem like I'm biased to my own gear. My sub is set to about 25% power and minimum on the receiver and I got a noise complaint from a neighbour in the condo. It's a concrete building and I've never heard any noises from any of the other units so the sound proofing Is pretty good. The sub is definitely overkill for what I need right now but I plan to buy a house and make a dedicated theatre room. (Didn't want to buy twice) Even at low output settings this sub is worth the money. The sound is far superior to anything I've ever heard even around the same price range. I'd also like to note that I live in Canada and with taking a weekend trip to Montana this thing cost me about 1400 (which basically would have been the cost to ship to Canada anyways after duty and freight) and it's worth every penny. Kudos to Dr. HSU and the amazing product he's developed.

Same here with the current crop of movies adding more dynamics and low end it always brings a smile to my face not to mention some re-mastered music.

Agreed, even if some of the newer release BD's might lack in the plot department the DTS MA and TrueHD soundtracks have been nothing short of spectacular IMO.

Well I'm already for the arrival of my new sub smile.gif
Even though I have a large room it's a kitchen, living room and dining area combo that is my theatre room. I'm set up in 5.1 soon to be 7.1 and hopefully 7.2 by late spring. I put an area rug partially over the linoleum floor where my surrounds are in the kitchen and I can hear the difference already. No WAF to worry about just me and my 17 year old son and he's like, dad you need more speakers. That's my boy biggrin.gif

Way to start the weekend.
post #4304 of 5095
I also have had mine for just under two years, it has provided much enjoyment. I am about to sell it since I caught the DIY bug and will be building quad 18" subs to replace the VTF-15H.

I think it's funny how many people have the 15H and their next step is something completely bonkers...like four 18's! Loving it!

May be a sign that we need the next big thing from Hsu with a trade-up program.

A single was my first. I was planning on dual JTR Captivator S2's. Dual 18's with a 4000 watt amp. But I got a smoking deal on dual Seaton Submersives that I'm going to pick up Sunday. I think it is because the 15h is a price point most would max out at. They buy it and get a taste what real quality bass is with the 15h, then they want more. And of course the perspective changes and now you will spend on subs what you could get a cheaper used car for !

Does anyone know/care to speculate how the VTF 15 in sealed mode compared to the ULS-15?

edited to add: reason I'm wondering is that after being a 1 port open guy, I've recently liked the sealed mode better on the on the VTF, so got to thinking: would the ULS be more of a good thing?

Speculation: not nearly as good.

That's all I've got. tongue.gif

Here's a few comments on the VTF-15H's Sealed Mode:

http://www.data-bass.com/data?page=system&id=100&mset=111

"The 1 port mode measures nearly as good or better in almost every performance metric so it is recommended."

The Sealed Mode is probably the tuning option that gives up the most in a trade-off and doesn't take advantage of its fullest potential. I think the ULS-15 would be the way to go for a sealed preference.
post #4316 of 5095
The sealed mode does have slightly better group delay, as you would expect from eliminating the ports, but probably not by an audible amount. The ULS-15 will function far better as sealed sub, certainly.
post #4317 of 5095
When you go from ported to sealed you usually have to add noticeably more power and some EQ to take advantage of that type of system. Can't do that with the 15H. It is best used as intended, ported.
