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 low bass, but if you want more of a night and day difference, the VTF-15H MK2 or the VTF-3 Mk5 HP would probably be more suitable. As they are ported, they will be able to play significantly louder and cleaner over the ULS-15 Mk2 in the deeper bass. That means you will get better dynamic range, less compression and distortion at higher output levels. In terms of placement, given that you have a fairly large opening in the front and some openings on the side walls, I would actually recommend placing the sub closer to your seating position instead of up front. For example you can place the sub in the back corner or place the sub next to (use it as an end table) or behind your seating position. Having the sub closer to your seating position will keep your mid-bass smooth and impactful and given the opening on the front wall, that may help keep your deeper bass fairly smooth as well. You still may end up getting a dip around 20 Hz or so, but it may not be that big of a dip in the response. Also generally speaking, for music especially, you want to make sure you get a good mid-bass as that's where a lot of the detail sits and that's also where you get a lot of the impact/punch.
