VTF-3 Mk5 HP Vs VTF-15H Mk2
 
Hi,
I have decided :confused: to buy either the VTF-3 Mk5 HP or VTF-15H Mk2 (they exceed my budget a bit though). I relocate almost every year or other and can't decide based on my current residence (25' X 30', wooden floor with three open door ways). Has anyone listened to both these subs? Are the differences (18Hz vs 16Hz, ~1dB difference over freq range) between them very observable to the listener (90% time I will use it to listen to music and I prefer deep, clean bass than just loud bass - so most probably I will close both the ports)?
Any comments/help appreciated.

Thank you.

If you are interested in the best extension and anticipate running it in 1-port/EQ1 mode frequently, then I recommend the 15Hmk2. You will hear less port noise for the same output level as with the VTF3mk5HP. Otherwise, the VTF3mk5 is probably the better value.

Bigger is always better. Go with VTF-15 MK II
it will work less harder and have more headroom hence better sound. It takes LOTS of power for low frequencies. Also purchase 2. 2 are much better than one.:)
