Thanks, Pete. I have a VTF-3.2 in Rosewood. Is that the same stain as the Rosenut? I have to look at decor issues as well as sound!

Thanks, Pete,

I also believe that that is the best solution. I might be able to talk my wife into two subs, but if not, which one sub should I choose?

My room is 17' x 25' x 9' and I have the VTF-3R Mark II. I can play at >95 dB with the sub, which is too loud for me. This was during testing and setup. My reference for the entire system is 80 dB...

I calibrate mostly for 2 channel at 75 dB from all speakers. Then, I boost the sub output about 3 dB for "crash and bang" movies. Normally my SPL is averaging 80-85 dB during loud passages,...

Some of the set-up discs will help set the phase. With low frequencies, the setting with the loudest sound is usually the proper setting for the phase. Experiment!
