VTF2 MK3 wiht DBX DriveRack PA+
Hello everybody!
I've just bought VTF2 MK3 from HSU Research and expect the delivery at 12/14/09. at the same day a expect delivery of http://www.fluance.com/fluanceavhtb.html set.
So I start everything from scratch.
My room is 25*15*8 with TV Samsung 40" in the middle of long wall. My CD player http://sharp-world.com/products/1-bi...fications.html stays nearby TV set.
I don't have any receiver yet and have no idea wich one to buy. I plan to spend 80% time for music and 20% for movies.
I have 3 Panasonic RAMSA amps and DBX DriveRack PA+
Now the question:
May I hook up all this pieces together and use DBX DriveRack PA+ like Xover and for pinkization(calibration using pink noise generator of DBX DriveRack PA+) of my room?
Thank everybody in advance!
And one more question: Which receiver 5.1 with possibility of bi-amping of front speakers should I buy for best sound quality? My budget for it is up to 800$

Hello everybody!
First of all great thanks to Dr. Hsu for great job. I recieved my new and my favorite toy just in time. And it really greate!!!!:rolleyes:
There is my preliminary setup:

Panasonic RAMSA:

DBX and old Yamaha:

Measuring mic DBX:

CD and old cheap sounding fronts:

So far, so good. I provided auto leveling and auto EQ of this setup using DBX DriveRack PA+ and DBX measuring mic and my first impression - it could not be better way to invest the money I spent for the sub. It's a long way in front of me in fine tuning of the system but I'll do it step by step without rush and making notes after each step.

Now just one thing make LOL: your packaging department made not that smart decision puting power cord inside the sub. Four legs were packed in small plastic bag, which was packed inside second plastic bag. This bag were tired from one end with thread to high level post and has been located inside one of ports and then this port had been pluged whith black plug :

But from other side it was cut with smth sharp:
Attachment 1173

and that's why inside bag with legs and bag with power cord were bouncing freely all the way from your facility in CA to my home in NJ.

It could be problem for me to take everything out of the sub. I had to place sub back side up? and the tilt it so that bags aligned the centerline of the port and I'm lucky that hands of my wife are thin and long enough to fish out those two bags through one of ports. I'm ten times more lucky that ports are strait but not bended 90 degrees :D

Now I hope that those to bags have not damage the speaker from inside.:( One of them(with legs) had sharp corners and another (with power cord) was pretty heavy.
And overall, transporting stuff inside inside subs is too funny to be acceptable.;)
I think that my next sub from you would be sealed :D
And now I understand why my subs I use to use in my professional applications http://www.hollywooddj.com/fbtverve1...te=google_base have grills covering port :cool:

But anyways THANKS a LOT And I hope in our further cooperation. I will continue posting resulted of fine tuning. Your product sounds great.

my order of 2+1+2 speakers I mentioned in my previous post is backordered by 11 weeks so I start to think seriously about 'Enthusiast 1' without Sub cause I already have one and this one is great!:)

What you consider to be a dust is a special acoustical treatment for absorbing standing waves, he-he :D
Attachment 1185

In one word IT SOUNDS GREAT!!!!!
And it's a long way in fine tuning of the system. Next step is buying of receiver Pioneer VSX 1019AH-K
Does anybody have ideas of better receiver for 80% music and 20% TV in 400-600$ budget.
Happy New Year to everybody! And best wishes to all of you!!!:)

Good deal Yan, what a great setup you have there!

Yan January 9th, 2010 10:20 AM

So finally I made my decision and ordered Pioneer VSX-9040TXH for 549 shipped. According most reviews it mostly satisfied my expectations. So I'll get it around January 15 and than after setup procedures I will be able to compare sound quality with pro audio DBX drive rack PA+ and Pioneer's MCCAC

Houston? we have a problem! :)
Hello, after almost ten years of brilliant service the Bash amplifier of the sub-woofer finally died.:(
Googling did not let me to find the same one for replacement for 'HSU research VTF-2 MK3 BASH' amplifier.
So have kindly ask for advice which amplifier may substitute it in my VTF-2 MK3 sub so that cutout and screws will fit?:confused:
Thank you all!

Kevin_Hsu November 19th, 2018 2:56 PM

Yan November 22nd, 2018 4:10 PM
