This is the million dollar question I purpose. Quick rundown, already have a HSU VTF3/2 in a 1700cu/ft dedicated room. For most it would be more than enough sub.......not for me.
Option one- buy another VTF3/2 for around $600 shipped and call it a day
Option two- Join the darkside and build a sub that can best this dual HSU offering. I really have no woodworking skills but am willing to try and buy the necessary tools to accomplish this. I like the looks of a box design more than I do the cylinders, just my personal preference.
Size- Somewhat of an issue due to available floorspace in a 13x15 room. I do have a free corner and roughly 4-5' of the wall available on on the left side. If I can make it low enough to stand my bookshelves(Onix X-LS) on so they do not interfere with the screen(37" from floor to bottom of screen), then the front wall is also a possibility.
Cost- I'd like to spend no more than $600-$700. I know that's not much of a budget, I might be able to push it up more if I spread it out over a couple months. More if I sell the current HSU but I want to use it in another room.
Goal- I want more of everything, overall output, a lower tune..etc.
I have REQW and will be purchasing a BFD 1124 to EQ it. I have had my eye on a Rythmic 15" servo kit but the TC-Sound subs seem to be the hot item currently.
