Usually when there is a b-stock, that means the sub has a minor blemish. It could be light surface scratches/markings/etc. Unfortunately, the sub sold almost immediately as soon as we put it up.

If for some odd reason, something were to happen in the future and you need to send it in for repair, both the driver and amp can be easily removed from the sub so you do not have to send the entire...

Hi there,

It really depends on your room, but our recommended setting would be to set the sub volume around 9 o'clock. Though, admittedly the sub is less sensitive as it was before, it is still...

Hi there,

The CCB-8's should work fine with the SIT tube amp. They are not very difficult to drive, and they are fairly efficient speakers (more efficient than the LS50). In terms of how they would...

Hi John,

Let me correct that a bit. Basically, if you're running from your S300 amp to the sub (high level inputs), instead of your PS Audio Stellar Gain Cell Preamp/DAC to the sub (low level...

Hi there,

I'm not sure I agree fully with his stance that running from the power amp is better. Some do like running from the power amp in that they want the signal going to the sub bass to be given...

Good question! The CCB-8's have a bit lower extension than the HB-1 Mk2's, so you can technically set the crossover lower and the speakers would reproduce lower frequencies. However, setting a...

Hi there,

Possibly, but sometimes the LFE can still introduce a high impedance signal that may actually end up causing a large volume drop when you play your 2 channel setup. That can also be a bit...

Thanks! Yea I would say that if you want a sub that would perform better in the low bass, the VTF-15H Mk2 is the better bet. Certainly the ULS-15 Mk2 would play a bit louder and cleaner in the ultra...

OK. Do you know the brand and model of the meter you are using? Also how far are you seated from the front wall. That's going to help me a lot in finding placement options.

1. Both subs are designed to be very accurate and musical, so it comes down to how much clean headroom you need.
