Thank you so much for ordering our VTF-15H Mk2! Can you provide me with the room layout once you get the chance? I'd love to look over it and maybe provide some additional options for placement. So...

No downside in going with the VTF-15H MK2. As you stated, barring the TN-1220HO performance, the VTF-15H Mk2 will give you a bit more clean headroom and a little more extension. You do have to keep...

Hi there,

We don't really have a sub that's very close to that in terms of performance. If you were to get another sub to run along, I would go with one that will either match or outperform it. In...

Thanks.

On vs Auto doesn't really make much of a difference in terms of wear on the amp. The amp is pretty efficient so the amount of power draw and wear largely depends on the amount of output it...

Sorry to hear that. Did you try testing the driver by itself? How did you run the STF-2 when it was working properly (volume, crossover, LFE channel level)? That room is a bit on the...

Honestly, our 15" subs can get you pretty close to that. Technically you can EQ any sub to go as low as you want, but whether you actually get significant clean headroom at those frequencies is...

Hi there!

Generally, it's ideal to have two of the same performing subs as you know they a perfectly matched and you can maximize the potential out of both. However if that is not an option, then I...

Thanks! The ULS-15 Mk2 should be a pretty nice upgrade over your current sub. With a 250w RMS and 12" sealed, the ULS-15 Mk2 will likely be like having at least 3-4 of those subs put together in...

You can order one from us, but honestly, you can use a towel or something similar to seal off the port. You're basically just trying to keep the air from escaping.

Hi there!

Where are you seated in that room? Certainly, we've had customers that have started out with one and wound up getting two and to them it made a pretty big difference.
