If the system is being used for strictly 2.1 channel music, then the VTF-1 Mk3 should be OK if you tend to listen to moderate levels. If you tend to like a lot of bass, or listen to louder output...

Glad to hear that you are liking the speakers! Yea the variable tuning can make a bit of a difference, especially in a smallish room. When we first exhibited the CCB-8's (I believe it was at RMAF) we...

If you're able to place the HB-1 vertically and keep the tweeter around ear height, using the HB-1 Mk2 as a center should work quite well. Otherwise, I would just go with the HC-1 Mk2 as the center...

Were you planning on getting a CCB-8 for the center channel later on?

No worries! I would run the auto-calibration with two ports open on the CCB-8's.

Should be at least as good as your current setup, only you have more clean headroom from the VTF-15H Mk2. I think the main thing you want to consider is the possibility of the other subs perhaps...

The ULS-15 Mk2 should be able to reproduce those higher frequencies so that's not really an issue. The main issue would be localization of the sub which may make it more difficult to try out...

Hi there,

For the VTF-3 HO, we don't really offer anything that has that same exact performance, so your best bet is to go with a sub that will play a bit louder and cleaner than that sub so you...

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.

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...

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...

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.
