I've got about 3000 cu feet of space in the basement and initially was looking at $600 +/- and was drawn to the VTF-2 MK4 as a potential solution for me. However, in reading the forums, it seems that there are a lot of people very happy with the VTF-3 MK4. Is the VTF-3 worth the extra price for my needs over the VTF-2? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I'm attaching a layout of my basement if that helps. Thank you.
Nice drawing! A larger sub will always have lower distortion (more effortless), mode headroom (dynamic), goes deeper, and better long term reliability when played at the same listening level. Hence it the VTF-3 MK4 is within your budget, go for it! The front right corner should be a good spot for the sub. Another alternative is to use the sub as an end table on the right side of your sofa, or behind the sofa with the woofer firing into the back of the sofa.
