Looking for a sub or pair of subs with similar fit & finish to HSU ULS-15 MK2
Budget: < $2500
Size Requirements: If I go with a pair of subs, I'd like the width to be less than 20". Smaller the better. If only a single sub, width isn't a concern. I'd prefer height to be under 24". I could potentially go a bit taller, but it would prevent me from upgrading my drop down projector screen to a larger size down the road.
Room Dimensions: ~2300 cu ft, but have an open floor plan so it opens up to something more like 6,500 cu ft and there's open staircase to the 2nd floor. Home theater is in my family room, so it's not a dedicated space.
Primary Uses: 80% TV & Film, 20% Music/Games
Listening Habits: I don't listen at crazy levels since I'm in a residential neighborhood, but definitely like to feel bass.
Appearance Requirements: Needs a high WAF. Would like a cabinet with a rosenut/rosewood hardwood veneer to match existing cabinets/decor
Timeframe: ASAP. Previous sub died.
I need to replace a failed Epik Empire. That sub did Ok in my home theater, but it was never meant to be a permanent fixture. Probably the most restrictive aspect of my ideal sub is I'm looking for hardwood veneer in rosenut or rosewood, which seems to eliminate most options. I don't want a black box. Yes, my Epik was a black box and my wife hated it. I was originally looking at the dual drive HSU ULS-15 MK2, but from reading lots of posts, the HSU VTF-15H MK2 is more commonly recommended for individuals with similar usage patterns and environments. However, I am not digging the looks of VTF-15H MK2.
Any suggestions for subs with similar fit and finish to the ULS-15 MK2 that are more oriented towards low frequency response?
