Hi there,

Unfortunately, we don't have any recommendations for those. They are pretty different in terms of the material covered so timbre matching, though ideal, may not be as crucial. Were you...

Hi there,

Yea those subs are very heavy, so we usually recommend going with the flip method of unpacking. Basically you open the first box, take out foam and corner reinforcements and flip the box...

There is no downside to running the sub always on. Feel free to do that. It's a very efficient amp such that it only pulls more watts if the sub is actually try to output bass material.

Yea that's a very tough question because it's dependent on so many different variables. I'll put it this way, let's say you play a 50 Hz test tone at your listening position at 85 dB. You go to the...

100% correct. 2 ports open also increases the efficiency of the VTF-3 Mk2 so it can give you more clean output than 1 port open mode.

hi there,

Hi there,

Actually both the coax and the HC-1 are horn loaded tweeters. We molded the cone and pole piece to function as a constant directivity horn. Horn speakers are generally more efficient than...

Hi,

It depends on the room and where you're seated. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to sub placement. For example, let's say your room and your seating position is fairly symmetric...

Hi there,

You can certainly try different settings. I would say that most of the time, when I have integrated two subs, I end up setting them pretty much the same. Of course, I may have to make some...

The sub should work pretty well for low-mid volumes. Our ears are pretty sensitive to changes in level with bass so at lower levels, the bass may seem lower in the mix. That's why many receivers come...

The speakers are fairly flexible when it comes to placement, but a good rule of thumb is to try to keep the speakers the same distance apart as they are from you. Basically you and the...

I believe that potentiometer is not sealed, so you can spray some compressed air in there, or you can use contact cleaner like deoxit.
