I was considering between Rythmik FV12 & HSU VTF-2 MK3. I had created a thread earlier over here and I was recommended the FV12 as better off than VTF-2 for my requirements (music & movies, with room size 12x14x9, for 600$ subs). I was searching around and I dont seem to find many reviews or discussions on FV12. But the VTF-2 seems to have plenty.

Is there some problem with FV12 that has kept people from buying it? Why are there so few discussions on this one?

No, The Hsu is just a proven sub that's been around longer. The Rythmik would be my personal first choice at that price point. I say give the Rythmik a try unless you prefer a down firing sub.

I think the vented/ported models from Rythmik are newer products, so less reviews than their sealed subwoofers, which are well-liked on this forum, especially for music. The FV12, is their first entry-level subwoofer. is a vented model so output should be good and useful for home theater, too. I think because a lot of people who previously got Rythmiks, were people moving from cheaper subwoofers and wanted the best so had bigger budgets so they bought the expensive sealed subs with the better electronics (as compared to the FV12). Rythmik didn't really attract budget-minded people, and those who did, would get Rythmik DIY kits and build their own subwoofers, but even the kits themselves weren't cheap as compared to other DIY kits (but probably worth the higher price, IMO).


If I had a choice, between that HSU model (which is a good model) and the FVI2 at that price point, I'd probably go with the Rythmik, too, just because of the servo technology and I hear it's tighter which can be a preference for music use.


I am however a HSU owner however and I love my STF-2. I'm really satisfied with it for HT and music. I got an amazing deal on it and it is far superior to my previous budget Onkyo subwoofer.

I would think that the Rythmik FV12, HSU VTF-3 and upcoming SVS PB12nsd (sledge) would make for a good shootout.

I agree.

Isn't the Epik Legend right around that price point too? Would love to see it head to head with these others

Epik isn't in any hurry to have the Legend tested, they get enough business from word-of-mouth. Competent testers who can do comparative testing are few and far between. The Outlaw EX was tested several times. Rythmik has its hands full trying to meet orders.


Basically the Legend would work well in small sealed rooms, unlike the larger ported subs that can manage 20Hz in larger space: prime example, Outlaw EX.
