Turbo Charger for VTF3-MKII? (Canada)

Hey guys, been ages since I posted here but I have been happily enjoying my VTF3-MKII for a few years now ;-)

Just wondering if the Turbo Charger was ever released for this sub? I do not see it listed anywhere on the website? Also, is there now an official Canadian Dealer for HSU. I purchased mine from SuperTeck but they seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth???

Any info appreciated! Thanks!

Wow it's been a loooong time since I've seen you post. Pete, can probably help more, but the turbo was never release the VTF3 MKII(though years ago I put a turbo on a VTF3 MKII even though it hung over the sides about an inch) before upgrading to the VTF3 HO. Also Hsu no longer makes the turbo.

Yes it has been a while! I typically lurk around forums when I am looking for advise on a major purchase. But then if I am happy with that purchase I tend to stay away from these places because I get bad cases of 'upgradisis' ;-)

And let's just say I have been more than happy with the VTF3-MKII! I have just recently built a false wall in my HT room, basically cutting off 2 feet, and built a new screen on that wall. And placed all my equipment behind it so the look is much cleaner and nicer. I never liked the look of the turbo charger so never really bothered with it. But now that my sub is hidden I figured it might be a good option to tack on there!

Too bad it is no longer made. Any ideas where I could get one these days? Did it make much difference on your MKII when you had it?

I had the turbo on my VTF3 MKII from April to September of 2006 and it was a nice improvement. In September of 2006 I bought a VTF3-HO w/Turbo and I've had it ever since. Since I bought the HO with a turbo I sold the turbo that I had on the VTF3 MKII. Turbos are pretty hard to come by these days. I just sold my VTF3-HO w/Turbo so you are about a week late, but I was only selling the turbo with the sub.

Here's some pics a comments from back in 2006 when I had the VTF3 MKII with the turbo on it. http://forum.hsuresearch.com/showthr...ighlight=turbo

Yeah I remember reading your reviews back then. Sounds impressive! I just found someone selling a VTF3-MKII locally so I think I am going to try out dual MKII's and see how that goes.

But I'd sure love to find a couple of turbo chargers for these things! Why did Hsu stop making them? I was looking forward to these subs being 'upgradeable' but now it looks like that is not the case!

I had dual VTF3 MKII back in 2006 and you won't be disappointed. Pete mentioned the reason for discontinuing the HO and turbo in this thread. http://forum.hsuresearch.com/showthread.php?t=25287

You sold your VTF3-HO?

lradden, you sold your VTF3-HO?

Have you upgraded already or are you waiting to see what Dr. Hsu is unveiling on 11/6?

Good to hear from you again...

Yeah I'd be interested to know why you sold the HO as well... only on the HSU forum will you ever read that statement without fear of law enforcement lol!

No wonder I stay away from these places for years on end. You guys would have me flat broke! I'd be living on the streets but have one heck of an HT system!

Indeed... for me dual VTF3-HO's with Turbo has been the "end all be all". I don't think I'll be buying new subs until those "kick the bucket".

Ok, so now I know why lradden sold his HO! Question is, are you buying one or two of the 15H's? ;-)

I am not sure... I just saw the new VTF-15H and my jaw dropped!!! However, I would have to sell both my HO's (sounds funny still to this day...) I know you will be getting one or 2 of those bad boys..

Just saw this thread and your post. Looks like you guys figured out all time ago why I sold the HO w/turbo.
