I think that's a mistake. If you flip to max output, you will get a little deeper extension with the turbo but still not as deep as in max extension. I think it's more like a compromise between the...

Ya, the black finish is the same. None of them are glossy. And yes, you are exactly correct about the feet. The first two are down-firing subs (the woofer points down to the ground). The 3.3 is...

I've never heard any hum coming from my sub or speakers even with the BFD. However, in my old apartment, the BFD would cause my sub to make a popping sound when I would turn on lights or the ceiling...

Looks like your mains are fairly capable. I would try 60hz and see which one you like better.

Hey Matt, I just replied to your post on AVS. I would say the VTF-3 MK3 is actually the sweet spot, considering the next step up is $200 more. The VTF-3 MK3, is much larger than the MK2 and has a...

If you are unsure of what it means, you can check with TV himself. I'm sure he will confirm what I have said. When someone says double the output, it pretty much means equal to two of the same...

The fact remains that two subwoofers placed in the same space will produce 6dB higher than one subwoofer. I know, I've tried it and measured it.

Also as far as the 10 log X and 20 log X. The...

Actually Ilkka is correct.

+3dB = double the power
+6db = double the spl (ie when you colocate two subwoofers)
+10db = double the perceived loudness

You guys need to do some research.

I'm not sure if it eliminates ground hum, but you can adjust almost any frequency you want down to 20hz. It's a parametric EQ, so you can adjust the frequency and the bandwidth. It's a little...

Hey no prob. The turbo only delivers more bass around 20hz and below. I honestly don't think you would need it unless you like to play really loud.

If you are looking to flatten your sub's frequency response, then a BFD definately can help. I have one for my VTF-3 HO and it definately sounds better than without one.

I would start out with the crossover for all speakers set to 80hz. 60hz is too low. 40hz is definately too low. The MBM should handle bass from 50hz to 80hz or 100hz.

Absolutely. The room adds 5-10db of output for a subwoofer. Those measurements were taken at 2 meters. If they were taken at 1 meter, the numbers would be 6dB higher.

You cannot do it from your receiver. If you want to set a different distance setting for the MBM you would have to purchase some sort of audio delay device.
