Good evening Backlash,
If we start to offer HO versions which fire to the other side, then by all means experiment with driver orientation. It will probably not make a big difference firing one way or another though, but it will certainly not hurt to experiment.
That picture was taken earlier this month at our booth during 2006 CES in Las Vegas. No one actually has the production-ready VTF-3 HO in their home yet. In fact, those two subs in the picture are the only production-ready samples that we have at the moment!
Unfortunately I am not sure if I will be able to fit a VTF-3 HO into my home, so I will have to wait for VTF-2 HO!
