I ran Audyssey in various different set-ups with my VTF-3 Mk5. EQ1, large port open, Q 0.7 offered the best (deepest) sound for my taste.

WTB ULS-15 Mk1

Looking for a first generation ULS-15, finish color is a secondary consideration. Shipping would need to be to Colorado zip code 80547.

Thanks.
