Hi there,

Thanks for the pictures! Yea it looks like two VTF-1 Mk3's should work nicely in that room. Great thing is that you are up against the back wall so that will likely give you a pretty good...

Do you happen to have the dimensions of the room and where you are seated in there? Both subs will likely be a pretty nice upgrade over the 10".

Thanks! I would say for that room, two VTF-1 Mk3's should be OK. Most of the music material stated doesn't really dig that low, so in terms of the extension of the VTF-2 Mk5, it may not be as...

Hi there!

1. Both subs are designed to be very accurate and musical, so it comes down to how much clean headroom you need.
2 and 3. What kind of music do you listen to? Do you dimensions of the room...

Happy New Year to you as well! Are those pretty large openings to the kitchen/dining/etc? So basically it's an open floor concept? If your plan is to go with the Hybrid 15 eventually, I...

When you say volume is at max, are you talking about the gain knob on the back of the sub?

Hi there,

Excellent review. We do recommend using a high pass filter/crossover at 80 Hz for the speakers whenever possible. I wouldn't say that setting a crossover will necessarily help the high...

Eh it really depends. 9-10 o'clock is what I would usually recommend with the ULS-15 original. The ULS-15 MK2 is slightly less sensitive. The potentiometer is not really linear, so I can't say that...

Really, other than finish, the VTF-2 Mk5 is better. In terms of performance, there is a bit of a difference, about 2-3 dB more clean output. That is certainly a difference, but not a huge night and...

The VTF-1 Mk3 would be the sub to choose to pair with the STF-2. They both have the same tuning/10" driver/and pretty similar amp power.

There is no downside to running the sub always on. Feel free to do that. It's a very efficient amp such that it only pulls more watts if the sub is actually try to output bass material.

100% correct. 2 ports open also increases the efficiency of the VTF-3 Mk2 so it can give you more clean output than 1 port open mode.
