Looking at this and the other threads where you've asked the same question, the response to your subwoofer question has been much more in the favor of the Hsu VTF-3 Mk5. In fact, I don't remember seeing anyone tell you to buy the Klipsch. The Hsu has more power, a 15" driver, and will likely dig noticeably deeper. If you're worried about the Hsu "matching" the sound of the Klipsch speakers, don't. I have Polk RTi A7 towers in our living room with the VTF-3 Mk5 and they blend together nicely.
Hsu is a well-reputed internet-direct manufacturing company with great customer service, too. I've dealt with Kevin and Dr. Hsu on a number of occasions, had three of their subwoofers (VTF-2 Mk1, ULS-15 Mk1, VTF-3 Mk5), and been 100% satisfied each time.
I could go into all kinds of assumptions and hypotheticals here because we don't know your tastes, your room, and your goals. But judging by the number of times you've asked the same question (and gotten the same response) it would seem you want us to talk you out of buying the Klipsch...for whatever reason. Hey man, it's your money and we're not going to look down on you for how you choose to spend it or what your reasons for buying a subwoofer are. You asked the question and the forum has provided ample feedback. Still, when all is said and done, what really matters is that YOU enjoy the end result.
Best of luck with your decision.
