I see, beautiful woodwork on those! If you don't need gobsmacking SPL, you might look into the original VTF15h in Rosenut. I would cross it over higher than the low 30s though. While your speaker may...

That is a gorgeous setup! Are those speakers some classic Tannoys?

That will make for a great system. I think the VTF3 mk5 will work well in that room also, but you can't go wrong with either sub. I think Hsu is nicely positioned to take advantage of Atmos and DTS:x...

If you are using it horizontally, you will want to rotate its tweeter 90 degrees. Its easy on the Hsu speakers, since all the screwholes are bi-symmetrically placed. You don't have to drill any new...

Hsu subs do have limiters, but they can be overidden if the signal is strong enough. The mode with the most protection would be setting the sub to 2 EQ, Q Control to .3, and plugging a port. The 1 EQ...

That looks like it would be a room null. The only way to cure it is either to move the subwoofer to a different position (which might only move the null to another frequency) or move the listening...

Does ALL music sound thin or just some? If your AVR is seeing a 2.0 source and only using 2.0 playback, it may not even be using the subwoofer at all, and instead trying to use the front left/right...

Sounds like an issue with your source. The sub would not distinguish between movies or music, it just plays what you feed it. This is a setup issue.

They aren't critical to have, but in the right sound mix they can be pretty cool. If your budget isn't tight, I would go for them, as more and more blu rays are getting 7.1 mixes.

My guess is it doesn't matter very much. I think what you will want is for the tweeter to have a straight vector to your listening position as possible, but that is just a guess. Unless the speakers...

I wouldn't think it would make a difference in terms of sound quality. The dispersion should remain the same. Anyway, it doesn't cost anything to give it a try.

As long as the seal is airtight, it will work fine. Make sure there is no air leakage in the seal, although even if there is a little it probably wouldn't be noticeable.

I would ask Hsu if the current plate amps can fit on the cabinets for those models. When the amps on those models go, you will want to be able to replace it easily, whichever you get.
