HSU 3MK3 not Available till end of Feburary

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I finally decided on a sub (3MK3) so I called today and they were out of them. I have to wait about 6 weeks. How much of a difference is the 3MK2 vs. 3MK3. They have the same amp and specs are very similar, but 3MK3 has a different port design. Price wise there is only a $20 difference. Sound and performance wise is there a difference?

Wasn't it just a couple weeks ago when I announced the VTF-3 Mk3? Amazing.

The difference between the -3 Mk2 and -3 Mk3 is in the porting and enclosure, which translates to very much improved deep bass output. However, if you are on a pretty strict budget, and want something now, then look at the -2 Mk3. Very similar in performance to the -3 Mk2, but much cheaper!

Sincerely,

UH-OH! I hope the trolls don't rain down fire and brimstone against HSU like they have done to ED (somehow I dont think they will)!! Now I really wish I would have ordered the new VTF-3MKIII. Oh well.....

I like to tell people to look on the bright side. The VTF-3 HO owners were patiently waiting for 6 months (maybe more), not 6 weeks! And the maple units were not due until February anyway. So, in conclusion, it will be all fire and brimstone for the next six weeks

Peter,

Are you allowed to tell us if the $650 price of the MK3 will continue until it's in stock?

Kramer, no real fixed date on that, that's all I know!

Yep, let the fire and brimstone rain begin. HSU! Shame on you. Kidding of course.
HSU is up front and letting the customer know that it will be 6 weeks till you get your unit. ED told me 7-10 days when. Plus everything else that went on over at ED turned me off from their product. The only bad thing about the 6 week wait for HSU is the av123MFW-15 should possibly be out by then and that will make my decision harder. I already know I am upgrading my current SVS PB12-NSD to either a higher model in the SVS lineup,the VTF 3 MK3 or the MFW-15. Decisions, decisions.

Thanks for the reply Peter, and it is the Maple cabinet that I ordered. But from what I have heard and read it will definitely be worth the wait...

VTF-3 HO

or VTF-3 MK3 w/ Turbo

Does the HO line have better preformance then the MK3 line? If it is substancial I guess the HO w/ Turbo is an option.

I ask because I am ordering the Ultimate 1 and it comes with an HO.

update I received my VTF- MK-3 in maple about 2 weeks ago. It is awesome...
I calibrated it with Avia then ran it about 5db hotter, Mostly used for HT so I like the extra punch...

I got my 3.3 about 3+ weeks ago. Well worth any wait IMO. My system has been reborn.
