Wont likely get a sub until later in the year. Ideas on sub to match above speakers in 12'x22' home theater?
Thinking possibly the VTF-2 MK5.. thoughts?
You all led me on too many hours of reading/research, decision making, mind changing etc. I think we will all be pleased with the results.
The VTF2 is a fine sub but there are others to consider if you are on a super tight budget or if you find the VTF2 just too big when you make a cardboard cutout to see if the cabinet size will fly with your significant other.
PORTED SUBWOOFERS $600 AND BELOW, DELIVERED
*THE LARGER PORTED SUBS DELIVER AT LEAST 40% MORE SOUND PRESSURE LEVEL
THAN THE SAME BRAND'S SEALED VERSION WITH SAME SIZE WOOFER AND AMP
*IF LOOKING AT LARGER/MORE EXPENSIVE SUBWOOFERS ADD PSA TO THE LIST OF BRANDS
*IF YOU ARE NOT AN ACTION MOVIE FAN A SUBWOOFER WITH 22-30HZ EXTENSION WOULD BE FINE
*FOR MUSIC A 30HZ SUB IS A FINE CHOICE
*BEFORE BUYING MAKE A CARDBOARD CUTOUT OF THE SIZE OF THE SUB TO MAKE SURE IT IS NOT TOO LARGE FOR YOU
