Thanks to those who have voted. I would have thought this would have received more votes thus far, but of course the "which sub" question has been beaten to death and I am a guilty party also, but want to spend wisely. Thanks again.

I'm surprised to see the VTF-2 beating out the FV12 by so much.

The VTF-2 been around longer than the FV12.

Either VTF-2 or Rythmik FV-12, (but VTF-2 only if used with both ports open = 25 Hz tune).

I own two of the subs in your poll and voted for the best of the two...of course, you can't go wrong with the HSU.

+1. I suspect the Rythmik will have more overall output if the HSU is used in Max Extention mode. Both should be very clean sounding.

Well, you already know what my answer is but for the sake of clarity I'll repeat it; FV12. Most of those listed are very solid, but the FV12 is where I would put my own money.

Jim,

You are correct, I did have your answer already. I'm pretty much taken down to the HSU and the Rythmik. I'm still liking the 7 year warranty on the HSU, but heck in 7 years, we might be flying spaceships and have chips in our heads for sound. HaHa. Thanks guys for all who have commented.

Why both ports open for 80% HT? Doesn't one want deeper bass (18Hz) with one port open for HT than 25hz higher ouput?
