I need to choose a sub for Christmas

The only problem I have is that I won't be moving into a house until March. So, I most likely won't know the dimensions until after I buy the sub unless I wait until after Christmas which I really don't want to do. I'm really excited about getting a sub because I've been missing a huge part of HT because I've been living in an apartment. Owning an earth shaking sub in an apartment doesn't make much sense to me. I'm not going to be able to spend over 700 (and may be pushing it a little) anyway so my options are limited. I really wish that I could get a VTF-2 MK2 because it's in my price range, but the VTF-3 is looking awfully good. I think the ho is going to be out of my price range unless my wife finds a job sooner than we think. Oh, I'm sure the house we move into isn't going to be huge in the square footage department.

I know that my details are small, but what do you guys think?

Get the biggest you can afford. Other than space, it never hurts to go big.

Since you do not know the size of room you will have after you move, it is also a good assurance knowing that you have a bigger sub that can handle a bigger area.

lol. I agree that bigger is better. How large of a room can the VTF3 fill?

Dear Maximo,

I would recommend VTF-3 Mk2 for large rooms (around 4500 cubic feet).

Sincerely,

Sincerely,
Thanks for the specifics. Can you give me some details on how large of a room the VTF-2 can fill? I really don't think my room is going to be 4500 cubic feet.

Good morning Maximo,

I would recommend STF-3/VTF-3 Mk2 for large rooms (up to around 4500 ft^3), STF-2/VTF-2 Mk2 for medium-sized rooms (up to 3000 ft^3), and STF-1 for small rooms (up to 1500 ft^3). If one has a very large room (say, 6000 ft^3), then go for VTF-3 HO

Sincerely,

Sincerely,
Thank you very much. Now, I just have to decide which one. I'll hopefully order well before Christmas. lol
