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.

Sounds good! Yea a single VTF-3 and potentially upgrading to two down the road would be even better.

It ultimately depends on your preferences, but if you generally listen to moderate, occasionally moderately loud levels, I would say the VTF-2 Mk5 should be a good choice. I think probably the...

Yea it depends on a lot of different things. In general the larger room you go the less likely you'll get room gain, but there are a lot of variables in that. Our room is about 4000 cu ft or so and...

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.

I don't think tightness has anything to do with amp issues. Have you tried taking the freq response of the sub in room?

Not a problem! The same does go with the Q setting as well. I generally like to recommend to start with Q.7 and adjust as needed.

That probably won't matter too much to be honest, but I would just keep it on the sofa to be closest to your ear position.

Hard to say, but I've heard a few others report that as well. It's quite strange. With the y-adapter, that does double in the input voltage going to the sub so it ends up adding an additional 6 dB to...

More of a matter of saving the work to cut a hole in the wall. My thinking is that the response really may not differ too much by moving the sub towards the front a bit versus placing it in the back...

Hi there,

The HIW-1's do not have an enclosure, so their sound and performance is greatly influenced by the wall you put them on. They do have the same drivers as the HB-1 Mk2's. It terms of SQ, it...

I would just stick with Q0.7. The way I go about it is adjust the Q first, EQ switch second, then port settings third. What you can do is play the 80 Hz test tone and switch between 0 and 180....

It really depends on your preferences. If you listen to moderate levels, I would say one VTF-2 Mk5 is a good start.
