Chris- I have a den where I am using the VTF2.3. Talked to Pete a few times & ended up moving the sub nearfield next to my couch. It made a huge difference in mid-bass slam. I initially had it up...

open room vs: sealed room

I have a 12x20x9 den where my HT is. There is an opening to the kitchen,
so the room can't be sealed. Would putting in a door to help seal the room

Pete, can you expalin the advantage of adding a MBM-12 to my existing VTF2.3 VS adding a 2nd VTF2.3? I figure that with 2 2.3's I can close a port & go for maximum extension & yet with a 2nd sub get...
