All Canadians (and their products) are raised on hockey pucks.

Except for babies, the pucks are for teething.

I also found the best effect occurred with the $2 Canadian Tire pucks and not so much with the $8 NHL Official logo pucks.


Only in Canada can the wisdom of choosing the correct hockey puck for creating just the right sound be found on a web board full of audiophiles.

You could look at the Hsu VTF 3 MK3 with real wood veneer.


Except that it is now side firing...

The VTF2-MK3 is still bottom firing though..

Is there any one out there that still makes down firing subs? I think some of the smaller eD subs are but the larger ones are front firing except of course the behemoth A7-700.

I really like my PB 13 Ultra smaller than the EP600/800 and as much output as just about anyone one would ever need.

Although they are designed primarily from the HSU platform, the "Outlaw" series of subs are primarily down-firing and have similar features though at somewhat less cost than the HSU's. I have the LFM-1 Plus in my system of multiple subs and it has excellent build quality and sounds great.

I reckon you're right. Looks like the VTF 2 MK3 is down firing.

Wonder why everyone is moving away from the down firing subs? They used to be all the rage. Oh well, time marches on I guess.

Have any of you guys seen or heard of these Linear Array Transducers(LAT) made by Tymphany? See the writeup as to how they work, it's quite interesting; they use several smaller diaphragms with two opposing end motors in a very small package, just a few inches and are claimed to be comparable to dual 8", 10", or dual 12" depending on the model. Kewell!! check'em out.
