Best match for VTF-3 HO

The title says it all. I have a VTF-3HO and would like to add another sub. I would prefer to find something used if possible but may just have to go new so suggestions of past and present models would be appreciated.

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 don't bottleneck your current sub. I would probably recommend going with the VTF-15H Mk1/Mk2 or the VTF-3 Mk5 HP.

Those are pretty much what I was thinking. Thanks for the advice!

I just bought a 15h mk2 to add to my 3.3 with turbo and mbm 12, I have the turbo with all ports open, do you know how I should run the new sub, as far as ports go with XT32, and to avoid making the 3.3 chuff.

If you gain match them, then place them properly so the response sums, you'll need less gain on the 3.3, which will naturally reduce any chuff. Kevin may have some better suggestions, but I'm pretty sure it's recommended to run 1 port open, EQ1, and Q at 0.7 for the initial calibration (that's how I run both of my VTF-15H Mk2 subs, but I wanted deep bass over everything, and I have enough woofage in my room that I have output to spare since I also run a pair of TN1220HO subs).

I would suggest a MiniDSP 2x4HD and Umik-1 and free REW software. Then you can get your 3.3 & VTF-15 all playing together as well as possible. Audyssey is rather limited in what it can do, so if you don't get a MiniDSP, then you might have to experiment with the phase switches and re-running Audyssey to see what comes out best.
