+1. It would be super simple to build. Check out my "Fake VTF-15H quad subs" thread. I used extra grilles, but the frame was easy enough to build. So building just a rectangle frame and covering...

You could probably use a piece of heavy paper like posterboard or costruction paper.

A piece 7-5/16 wide should do the trick. Fold it in half and make a 90-degree piece. One side goes against the...

I didn't get so much of an increase in output because they aren't co-located. It seems like more output because the response is better, but reference is still reference.

The frequency response was (subjectively) noticeably smoother when I paired up. My right sub isn't in a sweet spot, so it's not as "good" as it could be, but I love the appearance.

Anybody willing to give up their VTF-15H grille?

I contacted Pete, but they don't have any spares, so I figured there must be people out there who prefer their speakers and subs without grilles.

I need 2.

I gather he was saying his speakers are advertised 50Hz, but the receiver doesn't have a 50Hz setting.

Of course, the FR is usually anechoic, and will be lower in-room.

Do I need to wait to plug in and set up new sub?

WOOHOO!!!

My VTF-15H just got here!

Now, it's 30 degrees, and with my receiver, I had to wait 24 hours after I brought it in before plugging it in and turning it on. Does the same apply here?

DANG this VTF-15H is big!! I only thought I wasn't size limited. If this thing were bigger, I'd have no room for seating!
