Congrats to you! I am very jealous of you for such fine subs. I own the VT2.3 and quite satisfied with it. I would love to see and hear what your theater feels like. Enjoy!

I am glad to hear you're happy with ME mode. I tried MO mode in my room, which is much smaller than yours, didn't notice much more output versus ME mode. However, it is likely due to the fact I...

What is your primary reason for buying a sub? Is it for HT or music? If it's for music, it should be efficient unless you listen to your music at high level. If it's for HT, then you will risk...

I'm not sure where your VTF's port face, but it looks like away the wall. I would place the port 3-6" to the rear walls for some extra bass reinforcement while easily hiding the cables behind them.

How big is your living space including the kitchen and all other opening space? I would go with the bigger subwoofer in this case if your budget allows it.

Wow, that's an nice FR after BFD is applied. I wouldn't worry about response above 100 Hz if your crossover is at 80 Hz. Your Audyssey should take care of that with your main speakers.
